Now you can stay at White House Farm wildlife site and experience this special place through dawn and dusk.

The Sinfield Nature Conservation Trust is a Suffolk based charity established in 1994 to advance the conservation of wildlife and wild places.

In 2005, Stanley & Grace Sinfield's legacy enabled the Trust to purchase White House Farm Nature Reserve near Woodbridge, Suffolk. With over 100 acres of wild-flower meadows (including old hay meadows), woodland, scrub, natural regeneration and ponds, traditional management practices are retained, including conservation grazing with a small herd of British White and Red Poll cattle, hay cutting and coppicing.  Since the early 1970s, the northern fields have naturally regenerated.  We are furthering the nature-led development of these areas with light, varied grazing and minimal intervention to support the dynamic, self-sustaining system of rewilding.

 

Plans for the Future

Alongside the continued conservation of the habitats and wildlife at the nature reserve the Trust has fundraising plans to:

  • Develop The Barn and other buildings at White House Farm, to restore these traditional buildings and use them for nature inspired events, educational activities, therapies and heritage crafts.
  • Enhance the nature trails with interpretive and educational displays.
  • Add to the conservation machinery and tools as part of the habitat management.
  • Share an outdoor learning site in the woods for developing nature-based learning for all ages.

We would love to hear from you if you are able to help support any of these projects.

 

Open Season

Open Season: 1st May to 30th September, 9 am to 6 pm daily. 

Members of the charity can visit outside of these dates and times.

Please note there is a no dogs policy at the nature reserve.

"Our challenge now is to conserve the very nature of nature, which is the power to connect, to sustain, to heal and to invent; to keep filling the world with an infinite variety of wonders. That is how it is supposed to be. That is how we can move beyond saving bits and pieces of nature, and plan for the preservation of wholeness."
