The estate is very proud of its untouched nature reserves, and has areas of some significance when it comes to bird and wildlife.

Late in 2005 the first European Beavers introduced back into England were released and are thriving in a far corner of the estate.

There are viewing hides from where they can be watched.

The estate is also home to a wide range of Bird life, from waterfowl to owls.

Details of guided walks and the best spots are available from the property or the estate office.

There is some excellent fishing on the estate, both coarse fishing and fly fishing.

The coarse fishing is specialised and mostly specimen fishing, and the lakes would be classified as 'challenging' and not really suitable for beginners. As a tenant you are able to fish (within the estate fishing rules) details of which are available at the house. The fishing is managed by a permanent tenant on the estate, who will be happy to point you in the right direction, and show you the hotspots.
