How to move a Zoo in 10 days...
...have the most amazing friends, family and local business support ever.
On Friday 28th June people began to turn up to help us take down the aviaries to help move us to our new home at Celtic Holiday Parks. 10 days later and lots of laughs (and a few tears) this is what we’ve created.
Thank you to Pure West Radio for getting our S.O.S out to the County, to the amazing Celtic Quest Coasteering team, Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo team, South Carvan Holiday Park and Aim Country Sports for heavy lifting, moving and building! A1 Servicing & Tool Hire for lending us the machinery and moving the gravel and DP Building Supplies for the bags and brackets. Honeyborough & B&M Garden Centres for supplying the decorative touches and DM Griffiths Building & Plastering for moving our beautiful shop building.
There are too many individuals to thank by name. Anyone and everyone who has played a part in this, we are eternally grateful.
The owls have settled in well and we welcomed our first guests on Monday 8th July for our private experiences.
One day at a time
The People that made it possible
A brand-new Secret Owl Garden will reopen at Celtic Holiday Parks, Noble Court, Narberth in early 2020.
The gorgeous 51-acre site on the outskirts of the beautiful market town of Narberth will provide a scenic backdrop for the owls and visitors alike. There will also be the opportunity to stay on site in one of the luxury lodges or safari tents, to add to your adventure.
Please keep following us here, and on social media, for further information as we develop the New Secret Owl Garden to open in 2020.
Private Flying Experiences
We will continue to run our pre-booked private and group flying experiences from our new location whilst the new Owl Garden is developed. If you are lucky enough to have already booked to fly the owls you will have received an email letting you in on our big surprise, if it hasn’t arrived please check your junk mail or pop us an email. These experiences will allow you to visit the owls in our ’Mini Owl Garden’, fly 3 different owls and give you an exclusive, first look at our new home!
Noble Court is the largest of the Celtic Holiday Parks, set in 51 acres, it is in striking distance of the hustle and bustle of the boutique shopping town of Narberth and yet allows you to enjoy the stillness of the valley in which is nestled. Rolling fields, lakes and wildflower meadows offer wonderful natural habitats for birds, bees, squirrels and rabbits amongst others! Ideally situated for exploring Pembrokeshire and just a short drive to major attractions and activities in Pembrokeshire. At Noble you’ll also find Celtic Escapes – a luxurious “glamping” option. New to glamping? “glamorous camping” is that and so much more, as they have a selection of Hideaway log pods, one and two storey Safari tents with luxury internal bathrooms and fabulous private hot tubs. Celtic Escapes is also home to Bluebell Lodges and the new luxury Hamptons , both of which feature glass balustrading and hot tubs. Noble Court is also the home to a wonderful nature reserve, with a walk around a superb lake.
The Perfect Fit
Celtic Holiday Parks are proud to be different, rather unique in fact. They promote the quiet life, away from it all, resting with peace and solitude. All three Parks have consistently been awarded Gold status from the David Bellamy Conservation Award scheme for Holiday Parks.
They’ve created an environment that’s not just beautiful and enjoyable, but is an oasis for wildlife. The grounds team work throughout the year to implement guidelines and projects recommended by the award organisers, including wildflower meadows where Vetch, Cowslip, Oxeye and Meadow Sweet grow in abundance during the spring and summer months, using seeds originated in Britain.
This year they’ve been awarded a "Hedgerow Habitat" badge for the fantastic work that the grounds team do in conserving and enhancing these habitats which are home to insects, butterflies, bees, birds and of course fragrant wildflowers. Bees are a vital part of the Welsh countryside. They are both fascinating and beautiful, and are one of the important pollinators of crops, fruits and other plants. Celtic Holiday Park’s bee friendly approach to conservation was recognised with the recently awarded "Honey Bee friendly" status. They use bee friendly plants in all of their borders, baskets and boxes on Park including borage, lobelia, aquilegia, sunflowers and verbena.
Other green projects include the installation of greenhouses to collect seeds in the autumn to propagate their own plants ready for planting out in early Spring, together with the propagation of other plants throughout the year from an on-site cuttings programme. They monitor their energy consumption, use green energies as often as possible on the Parks and promote recycling amongst their guests to ensure little as possible waste goes into landfill.
