Within a short walk out of the site and down a quite bridelway there are 2 local nature reserves.
Hollym Carrs Nature Reserve is an oasis for wildlife in South Holderness. It really is worth the walk. The reserve is a public woodland with over 12,000 native trees and shrubs providing food and shelter for a wide variety of birds, mammals and insects.
Visit the reserve in spring to see an amazing display of Cuckoo Flower in the Burnham Meadow, blossom everywhere and many species of woodland birds filling the air with their song.
With acres of open water and marsh containing the protected Great Crested Newt and chattering sedge warblers, you will not be disappointed.
Dragonflies hunt over the ponds and rides in late summer. The woodland areas have a dazzling display of leaf colours in the autumn.
On a quiet walk around the mown paths you may well see Roe Deer or Brown Hare.
All of this on 27 acres of former arable farmland, purchased by the South Holderness Countryside Society back in 1991 and managed by volunteers to become a most amazing place for wildlife. It shows that if you give nature a chance it will thrive.
Be aware that dogs must be kept on a lead and the reserve is closed to all public access on December 26th of each year.
Toffling Hill Reserve
1.8 acre bijou reserve, located 3 minute walk from the site.
