Conservation

We are extremely privileged to be located in one of the most stunning corners of the country (on the edge North Yorkshire Moors and Coast) and recognise that the conservation of our natural environment here at Thirley Cotes Farm requires consideration in virtually all of our activities.

Today the pressures on the wild world are wide and complex and it is vital for us to protect our surroundings in many different ways. That is why we incorporate conservation management into everyday business and our team seek the highest standard of excellence in environmental practice.

We have always worked hard to make positive changes where possible in respect to energy and waste and leave areas of the estate ‘rough and wild’ to welcome wildlife. As well plant trees, shrubs and flowers that provide food and shelter. We also inform our holidaymakers what can be recycled and signpost designated areas to do this.

We want to inspire our guests to engage with neighbouring scenery and work hard to provide plenty of opportunities for people to connect safely with our year-round residents. We encourage visitors to see, learn about and enjoy the wildlife both across our estate and in the wider countryside and are constantly improving our conservation efforts to ensure the preservation of Thirley Farm and the wealth of flora and fauna it is home to.

We have also dotted nesting boxes around the estate, which can often be found filled with our growing family of Barn Owls and use low-level lighting to provide a balance between reducing pollution and ensuring our guests feel safe at night. What’s more, we have professional nature photography equipment set up on-site to capture and monitor our wild companions and display some of our favourite shots across our cottages for your enjoyment.

There are plans in the pipeline to build a Thirley Cotes Owlery and help further protect our feathered friends and we have installed specially constructed bat lofts to provide our nocturnal residents with a private place to rest.

You can experience our conservation efforts here at Thirley Cotes Farm first-hand when you book a stay at one of our properties.
