Blackwater, Isle of Wight

A Home for wildlife  and a haven of peace and tranquillity for us

Take a walk through our 10 acre nature reserve

Sit and listen, smell the scents of nature, close your eyes and breath it all in

Spend quality time with your children exploring the wonders of nature

Pond dipping, chasing butterflies, scavenger hunting

at a price you can afford

We run a small nature reserve and field study centre. We work with all community groups including Home Educators, college students, unemployed and other vulnerable people. We have several education and support programs that cover the national  curriculum for primary schools.

Our amazing volunteers help us to manage  the nature reserve. 

We are a place for parents who want to spend quality time with their children

and a safe place for the over 60's to visit
