Two Hour Bird ID Nature Walk

£300 for up to 8 people (£35 pp thereafter)

From deer to barn owls, kingfishers to species of butterfly, there’s a lot to take in during long rambles around the grounds. An On-Site Ranger will guide you through the grounds during this two hour excursion.


Morning Chorus Birdsong Tour

Available: March to June

A two-hour guided tour through the Reserve’s parklands and woodlands led by one of the on-site Rangers. The walk begins at 8am, or earlier if preferred, when the dawn chorus is quietening so individual songbirds can be heard. This is when songbirds are most active, and is a beautifully peaceful time of day to appreciate the Suffolk landscape and learn to identify birdsongs with the help of one of the expert Rangers. End the morning with breakfast in your property at 10 am, specially prepared by the chefs upon request.

*To add breakfast to your walk price please discuss with our Concierge Team.


Dawn Chorus

Available: March to June

During the spring and early summer months the estate is alive with birdsong. One for the early risers, guests are invited to listen to the cacophony of birdsong from 5 am, or as early as 4 am in the height of summer, that accompanies the sunrise. As the dawn chorus fades you will be guided by a Ranger who will explain how to identify each songster. Finish the morning with a hearty breakfast prepared by the chefs in your property.

All-day tour of local wildlife sites

£25* pp (£45* pp to include picnic lunch)
Available: All year round

Sibton Reserve is a stone’s throw from some of England’s premier wildlife sites. Take the opportunity to explore the almost unbroken chain of nature reserves that stretch along Suffolk’s Heritage Coast from Benacre Broad, in northeast Suffolk, to Languard Point at the county’s most south-eastern extremity. Guests are invited to leave the Reserve at 10:30 am returning at 4 pm, taking in some of Suffolk’s most picturesque and wildlife-rich countryside under the guidance of Expert Ranger Steve Piotrowski. Visit heathland, woodland, reed-beds, coastal marches and lagoons. A picnic lunch prepared by the chefs is also on offer, or visit one of the recommended pubs or restaurants and try a locally brewed Adnams cider with the catch of the day.

Permit payments and/or boat fees are in addition to prices quoted.


Butterflies & Dragonflies around Sibton Park Lake

£25* pp
Available: July to September

Sibton Park lake, part of Kim Wilkie’s revival of this Arcadian landscape, is alive with butterflies and dragonflies throughout the summer months. Guests take small rowing boats onto the lake from which the margins and shoreline can be explored, with stopping off points to search wild flower meadows for butterflies and other insects. A great activity for children and families, entertain the curious with a host of species to discover and the active with a rowing adventure. Starts at 1:30 pm and finishes at 3:30 pm.
