Explore Our Wildlife

We hope that all guests staying at Rivermead will make the most of the stunning scenery and wildlife. There are regular visitors to spot, or listen out for, like the red deer, Canadian wild geese, frogs, rabbits, squirrels, ducks, herons, blue tits, nuthatches, tawny owls and finches but Rivermead is also home to foxes, badgers, hedgehogs, toads, woodpeckers, kingfishers, soaring buzzards and otters. They are harder to find but it’s the most wonderful feeling when you do come across one of these beautiful wild creatures.

Take It All In

As well as the fauna, Rivermead is a plant-lover’s paradise throughout the year. There’s a huge variety of daffodils and tulips on display in March, primroses in April, carpets of violets, wood anemones, bluebells and tri-cornered leeks in May, rhododendrons, irises, camellias, azaleas, crocosmias, foxgloves, hydrangeas, water lillies and roses in the summer, as well as heather, gorse, hazel and copses of beech.
