The Wild West Rut

How about we start your Sunday off a little differently this year? For a one off event, set the alarm for 4AM on Sunday 15th October 2023 and wake up to an exhilarating dusk safari at Holwell Farmhouse, with deer specialist Matthew Hubble.

Grab your wellies, coat and camera for a chance to observe the wild red dear seek refuge for their yearly rut. Starting with a pot of tea and farmhouse site introduction by the fire, the group will be led up to a beacon field to watch natures showcase. Following the walk, breakfast refreshments will be included within the main farmhouse.

Due to the wild nature of this event, walking to several steep sites on the farm will be required. Due to the rough terrain, safaris are not suitable for pregnant women or anyone with a serious medical condition. We recommend suitable outdoor clothing. Please bring your own binoculars and Camera if you have them. Toilet facilities will be available. No dogs, except registered assistance dogs. £25 per person. With a limited group size of 16, please book early to avoid disappointment. Sights of Wild Red Deer aren’t guaranteed – Dates will be moved subject to deer sighting.

To book, please contact Ollie on 07955279779 or email to reserve your place!
