Wildlife Walks

Wildlife experiences for Prince Hall guests
Prince Hall has teamed up with local wildlife expert's to offer an exclusive opportunity for all guests. 

Prince Hall is in a unique position for wildlife on Dartmoor, and we are really excited about the opportunity that our guests have been offered. Almost all of the activities below can be enjoyed on foot from the Country House without having to get into a car, although excursions further afield can be arranged. There is something to see at all times of the year, and what you can do depends on your interests, but here are some suggested activities.

River walks along the West Dart (Goosanders, Dippers, Grey Wagtails, possible Kingfishers and a chance of Otters and Salmon;can all be seen any time of year)

Introduction to bird songs and calls (common birds eg Blackbird, Robin, Wren;spring and summer are best)

Atmospheric dusk excursions onto the moor to look for specialties such as Snipe and Nightjar (May-July) then back to Prince Hall for a nightcap

Winter birds of prey (chance of Hen Harrier, Merlin, and Peregrine as well as commoner species;October-March)

. The Country House can provide packed lunches and other provisions for longer excursions.
