Nature Trails and Activities


There’s lots to explore at Bosinver.

Try one of our trails and see what you discover…

Wellie hunt

Ten green wellies, hidden round the farm…

Come join us on a wellie hunt! There are ‘wellies’ with letters on them in secret locations all around Bosinver. We’ve got prizes up for grabs if you can spot them all and solve the final puzzle!

Gruffalo trail

Did you know, the Gruffalo’s been spotted amongst the trees down by our lake? Are you brave enough to track him down? Borrow the much loved book from our reception to read as you go around the trail (but then you probably know it off by heart anyway!)

Hunt the hidden animals trail

Watch out for animals along our woodland walk – both real and man-made versions! We’ve hidden lots of animals around the trail for children to find. Pick up a trail sheet from the office and head down to the woods and see how many of our animal friends you can find hiding there! If you spot where all the animals are hiding you can win a prize!

Big Bosinver Birdwatch

Older children and adults will enjoy our Big Bosinver Birdwatch challenge – every Sunday after animal feeding Farmer Dave offers guests the opportunity to borrow a bird feeder so they can watch them from the comfort of their cottage and have a go at identifying the birds seen. We have provided each cottage with its own copy of the RSPB’s Birdwatching for Beginners – a great little book which contains lots of tips to make identification easy.

We give out prizes every week for Champion Spotter and best photo or drawing and if any help is needed with identification we are always keen to join in.

Our blogs help you make the most of your holiday. Here are some of our latest…
