At Lowfields, we strive to create new and maintain existing wildlife habitats and this along with other environmentally friendly practices has earned us the David Bellamy GOLD Award for several years running  – Visit owildlifeur Accreditations page for more details of the David Bellay Award at Lowfields Retreat.

Our attitude towards conservation is that we must strive to continuously improve by doing more and more towards conserving our planet, resources and all of its wonderful wildlife!  A more natural park than Lowfields would be very hard to find!


David Bellamy Hedgerows Habitat Initiative

Introduced in 2017, the ‘5 in 5’ Hedgerow Habitat initiative has seen the David Bellamy award scheme assessors working with parks to highlight the importance of hedges and to look at ways to boost their value for wildlife.  The hedgerows initiative is the first of five habitat badges that can be won by a David Bellamy awarded park and in 2018 the focus will be on wildflowers which we feel, will only enhance the natural beauty of our park.
