We’re going ’30 Days Wild’ with the Wildlife Trust

by Jun 1, 2017Nature, Special Offers

Camping is such a fantastic way to quite literally step outside everyday life and take a moment to appreciate the natural environment we inhabit. Infact whilst we work hard to provide excellent facilities at Old Bidlake it is important to us that our countryside location in the breathtakingly beautiful Marshwood Vale always takes centre stage. As members of the Dorset Wildlife Trust we are aware of our responsibilities to manage our land in a sustainable way which will encourage wildlife and offer our campers the opportunity to enjoy and learn about nature.

For the month of June The Wildlife Trusts are running an exciting campaign called ’30 Days Wild’ setting the challenge to do something wild, as a way of making time to connect to nature, each and every day of the month.

Inspired by the Wildlife Trust campaign we would like to encourage families to camp out in nature this June and will be offering a 30% discount  to all June stays when quoting ’30 Days Wild’ when booking.
