Open Days

Every year in June and July, we host Open Days, when the public is invited to visit, free of charge. These are advertised locally and on our website. Our Open Days raise funds for various charities and wildlife conservation groups, so all visitors are invited to donate. During an Open Day, visitors are welcome to explore Lethytep for themselves, following the sign-posted circular route.

We also welcome small, independent parties of up to 30 people. Prior booking is essential. Most groups prefer an afternoon visit but morning visits can be arranged. 

On arrival, Philip will welcome you and give a short introductory talk about wildlife conservation at Lethytep. Philip will then guide the group on a circular walk which will take approximately one and a half hours, before returning for refreshments.

We make no charge to visiting groups, but we do request a minimum donation of 7 per person, to include refreshments, which will be wholly donated to our chosen charity - usually in aid of cancer research and other medical charities.
