Attraction Information

From the professionally crafted hides, thrill at the sight of badgers emerging from their setts and foraging for food! The area is floodlit for perfect vision and visits from other wildlife such as owls, foxes, rabbits and bats add to the spectacle.
They are pleased to announce that during the last three years they have recorded a 100% sightings record at Badger Watch Dorset, this means that you are virtually guaranteed to see wild badgers in their own natural environment.
For your visit they recommend that you bring a torch (to light the short walk from the hides back to the car park) some walking boots or stout shoes and warm outdoor clothing. If you have much older children and wish to stay in the hide until dawn, they suggest you bring some form of refreshments.
