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.

Wildlife in the UK

This section of the blog is for those passionate about flora and fauna, gardening, sustainability, habitats and more. Pick up ideas on how to 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!

The UK is home to a wide variety of wildlife, whether it is in your backyard or in over 200 National Nature Reserves; there are also around 50 zoos and several safari parks. Nature should always be part of your life.

Supporting a network of organisations that aim to preserve our natural environment for future generations around England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales!
