Our wildlife activities are one thing that really sets Gwel an Mor apart from other holiday lodges. Cornwall has a huge choice of places to stay on holiday but no other resort offers anything quite like this!

Feadon Farm is right next door to the holiday lodges and it is an amazing place where both children and adults can get up close and personal to wildlife, as diverse as reindeer and badgers. In fact, so far as we know, it is the only place in the UK where you can even hand feed foxes. Meeting our rescued foxes Todd, Copper and Meadow, is a highlight of any visit to Gwel an Mor and will be a lasting memory from your short breaks.

Wildlife Activities

Adults £10.00, children £6.00 (children under 2 free). Pre-booking is essential, please call us on 01209 844136.

New for 2014! Badger Watch

Settle down in our cosy hide for a dusk-set experience to see badgers and other nocturnal visitors in their natural habitat. Even if the animals don't appear, you'll see plenty of previous visits captured on our night vision Badger cam. Please note that as this activity requires you to be very quiet throughout, it may be unsuitable for very young children.

Wildlife Experience

Join the adventure of a woodland safari, you will meet some of the local wildlife, before meeting our rescued foxes. You can even fly birds of prey. With all sorts of rescued wildlife coming in, who knows what other creatures you might meet!

Meet The Animals

Tailored for younger children, this experience gives little ones the chance to meet and greet some of our friendly residents at the farm. Our reindeer brothers welcome lots of attention, our foxes love to be hand fed and many other animals are here waiting to meet them and get lots of strokes and cuddles.

Rock Pooling

You can enjoy this classic seaside pastime with a twist all of our own. Rock pooling is always fun but Gary adds a new dimension. Get a fresh new perspective on Hermit Crabs, Starfish and Sea Hares and whatever else turns up on the day, you might even see a seal and catch a glimpse of a dolphin.

Falconry

We have Harry the Harris Hawk and Sly the Barn Owl as well as other beautiful birds of prey. Gary will talk you through the history of falconry, explain the equipment used and after a demonstration, you will have a chance to fly the birds yourself (recommended for ages 8 years and upwards). Don't forget to bring your camera this is a wildlife experience you will definitely want to capture on film.

Night walk

So much wildlife comes alive only at night. A night lamp and a little expert know how from Gary reveals this hidden and magical world to you. We will look for badgers, owls, deer and foxes. If the wild foxes don't show up, don't worry as you will be sure to meet our own rescued foxes, Todd and Meadow.
