Deer Feeding Experience

Saturday mornings during the winter, see below for available dates (some extra dates added so not quite in chronological list)

Join us for this unique experience. Join a Ranger and travel to the deer sanctuary in an off-road vehicle to help feed the deer herd over the winter period. The event starts at 8:30 am and is anticipated to last for around 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

This is limited to 2 people on each date and has proven very popular previously.

The experience is available to those with limited mobility, the only criteria being the ability to climb into an off road vehicle in the car park at the start of the event. 

You will be met by the Ranger in Newton Linford car park, the cost of the event includes car parking and refreshments; relevant passes/vouchers for these will be provided by the Ranger.

This experience will involve visiting areas of the Park not normally accessible to the public and may involve uneven ground and weather affected ground, it will take place in winter irrespective of weather conditions. Appropriate clothing and footwear is therefore recommended.
