Back to Nature

At Sykes Cottages, we have a true passion for UK wildlife conservation. We work closely with several organisations that share a similar passion and decided it was imperative we dedicated a section of our blog to the important subject.

This section of the blog is for those passionate about flora and fauna, gardening, sustainability, habitats and more. Pick up ideas on how optimise wildlife in your garden, how to play your part in the preservation of UK wildlife and fun activities that the children will love to be involved in. Keep those green fingers busy!
