Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve

Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve is located in the heart of rural West Dorset. It consists of almost 450 acres of unspoilt countryside. Originally a farm, Kingcombe Meadows is now managed for conservation using traditional farming practices. The site is grazed by our own breeding stock of organic cattle and sheep. The diversity of habitats and wildlife to be found at Kingcombe Meadows make the reserve a wonderful resource for studying natural processes and the environment. Visiting groups will be greeted by a member of staff and introduced to the site. They may then use the self-guided trail starting at the Pound Cottage Information Centre, free of charge. By special arrangement, Dorset Wildlife Trust also offers a selection of curriculum linked activities for Key Stages 1 to 4, each led by a DWT People & Wildlife Officer.
