Haweswater Badger Hide: Individual Bookings

Enjoy a wild night out at RSPB Haweswater!
From the comfort of our brand new Badger Hide, you can watch the ‘Haweswater Badgers’ as they forage and socialise, allowing you the unique opportunity to observe these secretive mammals at close range.
Each Monday throughout April to October 2019 we will be offering our Badger Hide for individual bookings, perfect for families, couples, or a sole-badger lovers! On these sessions you will have the added benefit of being accompanied by an RSPB Badger Guide who can tell you more about the individuals you are watching, as well as answering any questions about badgers that you may have.

Each Badger Watch lasts approximately 1.5 hours. Seating is provided, as is the option of enjoying a delicious hot drink to accompany your badger watch.
Spaces are restricted to 6 people during each Badger Watch, so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
Please look at our Private Hide Rental option if you would like exclusive use of the hide for yourself, or your group.

Each Badger Watch coincides with the changing sunset times throughout the year, so the times of each event may vary slightly. Please ensure you double check the start time of your selected date.
Please note that the time stated is the time in which we will enter the hide, you must arrive to Naddle Farm at least 15 minutes before this.

Are families welcome in the Haweswater Badger Hide?
Absolutely! We would encourage families to join us at Haweswater to enjoy a Badger Watch together, and would equally recommend that adults who are intrigued by these fascinating mammals visit the Hide for this unique experience.
We would however recommend that only children aged 6+ attend Badger Watches. As badgers are sensitive to noise, children (and adults!) would need to remain largely quiet for the 1.5 hour session.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Unfortunately public transport to Naddle Farm is unavailable.
There is parking available at Naddle Farm for those driving. Simply drive up the Naddle Farm lane until you reach the farmhouse (the RSPB Haweswater offices), where your Badger Guide will be waiting for you.
