Nature provides excitement

Within Blacknest House Cottage Woodland there is a pond with an island reached by a wooden bridge but when a storm fells an ancient tree then “walking the trunk” can be even more exciting.

The tree in the featured photograph has now been cut up and logs are drying in the woodshed but adventurous kids will be able to use the tree pictured below as an enormous natural climbing frame.

Those interested in “bug hunts” will be able to comb through the roots for specimens or  fish for examples of pond life.
