It’s incredibly easy to get swept away by the magic of the Somerset countryside and an aura of serenity, calm and beauty permeates its every aspect. Comprised of historic parkland and mature ancient woodland, the Grade II* listed land of The Belmont Estate is diverse and attractive.
Throughout the woods remain original Georgian rides wending gracefully and peacefully, offering enchanting glimpses not just of the elegant Georgian past, but the life of today’s woodland. A walk along the tree-lined avenue from the entrance at Station Lodge conjures the vision of arriving back at Tyntesfield 100 years earlier via the new station at Flax Bourton.
Our historic parkland in Bristol supports the delicate eco systems and habitats of a wide range of flora and fauna. At the start of the year the woodland floor is peppered with delicate snowdrops. These make way to a veritable carpet of English bluebells and, in turn, these to an incredible covering of wild garlic. As the leaves fall from the trees there is an eye opening range of mushrooms and fungi that appear and disappear with every passing week.
At our estate in the Somerset countryside, our ethos is one of sustainability and our woodland management programme has preservation and conservation at its heart. Over the past few years, our team of skilled woodland specialists has started to focus on the regeneration of the ancient woodland.
With natural balance uppermost in our minds, we ensure no pesticides or herbicides are used on the land unless absolutely necessary in order to give our animals and crops the ability to thrive in the way nature intended. The philosophy behind all that we do at Belmont is the preservation of harmony with nature and the respect of our natural surroundings. We are working towards our soil association certification in order to substantiate our organic way of life.
