Hello to all our lovely readers, we hope you are all well? Did you get a chance to read last week’s blog? It was all about the lovely area of Lyme Regis in Dorset which is on the Devonshire border. The beautiful area is filled to the brim with attractions, exquisite landscapes and delicious places to eat. Click here to check it out. Back to this week, we wanted to share with you what Spreacombe Gardens has been up to. They have been doing their bit for nature with their latest conservation project, keep reading to discover more.
Spreacombe Gardens is a stunning self-catering accommodation site located in North Devon, not far from the beaches of Woolacombe and Putsborough. The site boasts 6 pretty holiday homes in the peaceful Spreacombe Estate.
The holiday homes are a mixture of dog-friendly and non-dog-friendly cottages, all of which are spacious and bright with fantastic countryside views.
Guests can enjoy walks around the estate spotting birds and nature along the way.
Their Pledge to Nature
Recently, Spreacombe Gardens joined the North Devon Biosphere’s ‘Pledge for Nature’. The scheme helps accommodation providers, business and locals connect with nature and wildlife, allowing us to live in harmony as one. Here at Devon Farm Holidays, this is important to us as we all love and enjoy the stunning countryside that makes up Devon and the wonderful wildlife that inhabits it.
Spreacombe Gardens was fortunate enough to be given a Kestrel nesting box. Kestrels are listed as an ‘amber’ UK conservation status which means that the population is on the decline. Not only have the numbers declined across the country but they have significantly declined in Devon, so the North Devon Biosphere wants to change just that. It is hoped that with more nesting boxes in the perfect locations for the Kestrels will help to improve the number again.
Spreacombe Gardens had to locate the box on an undisturbed tree away from woodland They Spreacombe they had just the spot and got in place and secure. The main Kestrel season is between April and July so now it is time to just wait and see what visitors they receive.
