Pensthorpe Natural Park, Fakenham

For three exciting years, Pensthorpe played host to the hugely popular BBC Springwatch series and had a fabulous time doing so. The natural world of the birds and animals here at Pensthorpe, which we were privileged to see on our screens each evening, was truly remarkable.

Pensthorpe is a natural home for many species of birds, mammals, invertebrates and plants. The diverse range of priority habitats together create a stunning rich landscape which Pensthorpe Conservation Trust manages for wildlife.

Home to four of the most spectacular gardens in Norfolk, including a stunning meadow and the most beautiful of lakeside environments, Pensthorpe Natural Park provides year-round colour and interest.

During a visit to Pensthorpe you can see wetlands, hedgerows, woodland, water meadows, river banks, species-rich farmland, breck and heath – all vital for a species-rich countryside.

There are over 200 acres to explore. There is a café, children’s play area, a sculpture trail and many special events throughout the year.

Pensthorpe Natural Park is open 7 days a week from 10am.
