MAKE TRAVEL MATTER®

Cattle and Coastline

This is a biodiversity journey around Guernsey with our guide Dave Bartram, where you will be able to see the herd of six steers that he manages in order to increase biodiversity. You will be able to get up close with the cattle who always love a scratch from a passer-by. 

You will visit the calves who are brought up in a different location and there will be the opportunity to feed the calves. You will see how grazing, as opposed to mowing, can help the environment as well as learning about Guernsey. This tour is for small groups of up to six and will be in the hotel's own vehicle.

This tour will be approximately three hours and will include refreshments. Prices are available on request.
