Low Hall Lake District Country Cottage

Wildlife at Low Hall


Spend lots of time in the cottage and cottage garden (its gorgeous). Watch our birds (over 64 species come into the garden, binoculars and bird book are supplied. Grey Herons, buzzards, sparrowhawks, tree creepers, several species of owl and bats are frequent sightings at the property.  Watch our red squirrels  ; watch the hares, or if you are lucky, the badgers or roe deer.  You may be lucky and see the deer cross the drive, most days you will see the buzzard fly across.  There are many native wildflowers, and the owners are steadily introducing more.  In the spring there is an abundance of snowdrops and daffodils. There is almost no light pollution, so on a clear night the stars are awesome.
