5 Small Steps

Five Small Steps With Big Impact During Your Stay At Sheepdrove

Stay Local, See Local, Buy Local, Eat Local

Enjoy walking, cycling and outdoor activities by staying around Sheepdrove and the beautiful countryside, villages and towns nearby. Do consult our guestbook or https://sheepdrove.com/things-to-do-places-to-go/ for ideas. Buy souvenirs and gifts from local producers and artists where possible. Support the local economy by visiting local pubs and restaurants, farm shops and eateries. Enjoy the wealth of historic properties, gardens and attractions in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire. 

Reduce Carbon Footprint

Why not spend a day at Sheepdrove? Enjoy a picnic, stargazing, birdwatching, wildlife spotting, a farm trail or a wander through Nut Wood and a bit of forest bathing – and give the car a holiday too!

Chill Out and Switch Off

Turn off taps, switch off lights and equipment and close curtains to minimise heat loss during winter months, when leaving a room or the property.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Limit purchases with unnecessary packaging, separate rubbish and use our recycling bins. Report maintenance issues to info@sheepdrove.com

Follow the Countryside Code

Please help us to help wildlife thrive and avoid disturbing ground nesting birds by sticking to the paths and keeping your dog close by or on a lead. Please clean up after your dog and take all rubbish back home to the bin, including pet waste. Please do not park on verges – this will destroy fragile plants. Please leave gates as found and do not stray into areas designated as private and no entry – Sheepdrove is a working farm so this for your own protection and safety.
