Wildlife Walks

Wildlife experiences for Prince Hall Hotel guests

Prince Hall Hotel has teamed up with local wildlife expert's to offer an exclusive opportunity for hotel guests.  

Prince Hall Hotel is in a unique position for wildlife on Dartmoor, and we are really excited about the opportunity that our guests have been offered.  Almost all of the activities below can be enjoyed on foot from the hotel without having to get into a car, although excursions further afield can be arranged.  There is something to see at all times of the year, and what you can do depends on your interests, but here are some suggested activities.

River walks along the West Dart (Goosanders, Dippers, Grey Wagtails, possible Kingfishers and a chance of Otters and Salmon; any time of year)

Introduction to bird songs and calls (common birds eg Blackbird, Robin, Wren; spring and summer are best)

Atmospheric dusk excursions onto the moor to look for specialities such as Snipe and Nightjar (May-July) – back to the hotel for a nightcap

Winter birds of prey (chance of Hen Harrier, Merlin and Peregrine as well as commoner species; October-March)

.  The hotel can provide packed lunches and other provisions for longer excursions.

"Thank you for everything you have done for [our sons].  You’ve been an inspiration to them both and they have both caught the ‘bird bug’ which I am sure will stay with them thanks to your passion and enthusiasm."
