Devon Badger Watch is open evenings, Monday to Saturday from April to October inclusive.
The generally mild weather and the badgers’ continued high level of activity; from 2002 we will remain open during November. To start with this will be at weekends only. This is because although the clocks go back for us humans, they don’t for the badgers. This would mean we would either have to start the watches earlier by our clocks, which is not practically possible for us, or start later by the badgers’ clock. If there is sufficient demand however, we will try this on some weekdays as well and see how quickly the badgers adapt to the new time.
The start time can vary slightly throughout the year, but it is usually 7.30 pm.
|Children (7-15 inclusive)||£8.00|

Payment may be made by either cheque or cash, usually in advance for a guaranteed seat on a watch. Sorry, we are unable to take payment by credit card.
Owing to the limited number of places available, for cancellations made within 7 days of the date booked, we regret that we can only give refunds where the number of places booked can be re-filled and may be liable to a cancellation fee of 10%.
In the unlikely event of a cancellation of a watch by us, a full refund will be given.
Our hide can seat 23 people comfortably. For groups of more than 10, who book and pay at least three weeks in advance, a discount of 10% is available. The group organiser is responsible for making all members of the party aware of all booking conditions and advice given as below.
We do not usually take children younger than 7 as they do need to sit very still and remain quiet for the whole time at the hide. The average time spent at the hide is 1hrs : 30 mins – 2hrs : 30 mins but it can be longer, particularly early or late in the season.
Whilst bookings can be taken on the day, as places are limited, advanced booking is recommended to avoid possible disappointment
