Thorp Perrow

  • Thorp Perrow covers 85 acres of woodland and lakes, providing excellent opportunities for some really interesting wildlife walks.

"Many of the nation's country estates introduced wild animals such as deer for the pleasure of the owners and visitors.


"We have some carefully managed habitats for you to explore - a park, a newly created garden and a country estate."
