Wildwood Escot

Wildwood Escot quality assured

NEW FOR SUMMER 2017: Our magnificent wolf pack will be on show for the summer holidays. Elvis, Lemmy, Sting, Moby and their sisters K.D. and P.J. will be thrilled to meet you.

Start your adventure by picking up a free visitor map, guiding you around over 37 acres of stunning woodland park. Enjoy a close-up encounter with our rare red squirrels in our walk-through enclosure, lose yourself in our world-class beech hedge maze, and marvel at our fantastic bird of prey displays.*

Navigate the vast woodland, stumbling across our wildcat and lynx enclosures, and discover Jurassic Pork where wild boar and their piglets roll around in the mud! With a hidden playground, a heart-stopping drop slide and an indoor play barn available all year round, Wildwood Escot is the perfect place for a family day out.

If you’re looking for a blend of education and fun, then visit Edcott, our Anglo-Saxon village which comes to life with a working forge, woodwork and the opportunity to also make your own Saxon penny. Get involved with wheat milling, learn about food and herbs of the era, and torture your friends in the stocks!*

For peace and tranquillity after all the excitement, stroll around our walled garden before visiting our gift shop which is full of fun and educational gifts. From pens and pencils to bug finders and postcards, there is plenty here for you to take home as a memento of your day out at Wildwood Escot.

Finish your day by enjoying some refreshments at the Coach House Restaurant, where we serve delicious freshly prepared food including Devonshire cream teas – perfect for taking a break before you head home!
