Dovestone Park lies adjacent to an area of the Peak National Park known as "Dark Peak", which forms a globally important treasure trove of wildlife habitats.
The beautiful RSPB reserve of Dovestone is a bird watchers paradise, where Skylarks, Meadow Pipits, Red Grouse, Curlew, Ring Ouzel, Merlin and Peregrine falcons can all be spotted. A walk in these beautiful Moors and Gritstone Crags will find you amongst the flora and fauna of Cotton Grass, Bilberry and Cloudberry. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for wild Red Deer and Mountain Hares.
Curlew, Lesser Redpoll, Golden Plover, Goshawk, Peregrine falcons and Red Grouse are amongst nearly 100 bird species that can be spotted either seasonally or throughout the year. The reservoirs are also home for many waterfowl - Ospreys and Kingfishers have recently been spotted.
Dove Stone has some very special claims in the Funghi department, including only the 3rd sighting in the UK of Arrhenia Peltigerina and the only slightly more common Skeletocutis Amorpha.
The winter appearance of snow-white Mountain Hares is something to make a special lookout for and is a sight not often seen.
At Dovestone Park, we pride ourselves on providing you with the very best guest experience and we look forward to welcoming you again.
