On a Wild at Heart holiday there's so much to experience. Get involved with practical wildlife conservation and seal research; go dolphin, seal and bird watching with knowledgeable experts; unravel nature's mysteries with wildlife tracking and bushcraft; try your hand at nature based art projects and environmental games; find your inner quiet with nature writing and journaling, or learn new skills such as wool felting and willow weaving.
Wild at Heart is based at Newbold House; a beautifully maintained Victorian mansion, in 7 acres of beautiful grounds, run as a nature and wellbeing centre. You can choose to stay in one of our lovely rooms or the more rustic option of a comfortably outfitted, vintage themed, canvas bell tent.

"More than a holiday, more than a travel experience, more a completely new way of looking at wildlife and life in general, including our own...could well be a life changing experience for both of us" Alison Nichol-Smith and son Miles (aged 14), April 6th 2012.
