Badgerwatch at NannerthNannerth Fawr Farm, Rhayader, Powys Category Outdoor Activities, For the Family, For the Kids, For Adults
Walk through the meadow just before dusk and find the treewalk which takes you to our magical treehouse high in the boughs of a great oak tree. There you can watch badgers as they feed and play beneath the treehouse. A few peanuts will usually tempt them out and badgers are seen most nights during spring, summer and autumn (although this cannot be guaranteed). There is an extensive and ancient badger sett on the slope beneath the treehouse hide and the badgers have been filmed there for the BBC programme Nature's Diary. Badger watching involves a few minutes walk in the evening across a sloping meadow and settling down quietly for a while in the treehouse to maximise your chances of seeing badgers. There are no steps.
