Nature Watching

The Peak District boasts an impressive wealth of wildlife within its spectacular landscape and this is often one of the main attractions for visitors to the area. With a lifelong knowledge of farmland wildlife, Jean has cultivated her land to provide a haven for local wildlife as well as providing grazing for livestock through the summer months.

In partnership with local nature photographer, Chris Johnstone, wildlife photography hides have been positioned on the farm to allow local and visiting photographers the chance to photograph some of the species that visit the feeding stations.

Guests at Weathericks Holiday Cottages receive a 30% discount on use of the hide (subject to availability) and are open to non-photographers that just want to get close to wildlife. For full details, visit the Peak Nature website.

In recognition of Jean's work in the surrounding environment, she has been awarded the Peak District Environmental Quality Mark - an award presented to businesses that support and enhance their local environment and economy.
