A UNIQUE, MEMORABLE GIFT

If you are looking for a truly unique gift, then look no further!

The Haweswater Badger Hide provides the perfect, comfortable base to watch one of Britain's most elusive mammals at close range. A fully enclosed, wooden hide, kitted out with chairs, hot drink making facilities, and even a radiator, this is wildlife watching at it's most plush - and is a wonderful way to enjoy a wild encounter with Badgers in summer and winter months alike.

This is an ideal gift for wildlife lovers, budding photographers, families or those keen to try something new in the Lake District! The Gift Voucher will entitle the recipient(s) to hire the Haweswater Badger Hide exclusively for the evening of their choice (availibilty depending).

The Hide can seat 6 - 8 people, so the Gift Voucher recipient(s) are welcome to bring additional people with them to enjoy their 'wild night out', with a maximum of 8 people using the hide in total.

As the viewing area is floodlit, the badgers can be watched all year round (subject to the hide's open season) - from light spring nights to dark wintery evenings.

The recipient simply contacts the RSPB Haweswater team directly to reserve their preferred date, all information required to do so will be provided in their Gift Voucher.

The Gift Voucher expires 12 months after the initial purchase date.

Your Gift Voucher will be personalised to include the recipient's name and a booking reference number, and will be forwarded to via email you as an electronic PDF within 24 hours.

Please be aware that the Haweswater Badger Hide will be closed to the public in severe winter conditions, this is to ensure the safety of any visitors.

FAQ'S

Where can I send enquiries about Badger Hide Gift Vouchers?

Get in touch with RSPB Haweswater Visitor Development Officer Heather, at heather.devey@rspb.org.uk or 01931 713376, who would be happy to answer any questions you may have.


Who are these Gift Vouchers suitable for?

Everyone! A night watching Badgers is enjoyable for most people, and hiring the Haweswater Badger Hide excluisvely allows the receiver(s) to spend the evening as they wish, staying in the hide for as long as they like.

Wildlife watchers and photographers will appreciate this gift very much, however it's also a unique gift for people who may be planning a holiday in the Lake District or couples and families keen to spend a unique night out together.

It is important to note however, that under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. You are very welcome to buy this Gift Voucher as an exciting present for a wildlife-loving young person, however it is essential that they are in the hide at all times with an adult(s), and that all booking arrangements are made between the RSPB and their guardian, and not the young person in question. We encourage young people engaging with nature, so if you have any further enquiries about this, just get in touch.


Is photography allowed in the Haweswater Badger Hide?

Yes it is - the Gift Voucher recipient is can take excellent photographs through the window, or the camera latch which is also available to use. The viewing area is floodlit so does not rely upon natural light. Unlike our Guided Badger Watches, the recipient of this Excluisve Hire Gift Voucher is welcome to bring a tripod too.


Can I purchase one Gift Voucher as a present for more than one person?

Yes of course, you can purchase a Gift Voucher as a gift for a couple/ family/ group - however please be aware that the Gift Voucher is only valid for one date, so the chosen recipients would need to visit the Badger Hide together on the same evening. You are welcome to include more than one name when buying the Gift Voucher in this case, however please keep it as short as possible (there is limited space on the Gift Vouchers!) Such as 'Jane and Bill' or 'Mr and Mrs Smith' or 'The Smiths' or 'Class 9' (for a small school group booking) etc.


What is the cancellation/ refund policy for Gift Voucher purchases?

As the buyer of a Gift Voucher, you are entitled to a refund up to 7 days after purchase. We are unable to transfer the value of the Gift Voucher to other RSPB Haweswater events and experiences. If the name(s) of the recipients need to be changed, you must contact RSPB Haweswater as soon as possible using the contact details above.

Once the recipient chooses their selected date, it is preferable that this is not changed. If the date needs to be changed, they must contact the RSPB Haweswater team. Dates can only be changed up to 7 days prior to the initial selected date.

It is very rare that we need to cancel an Exclusive Hide Hire, however in the unlikely event that this is required for unforseen circumstances, the Gift Voucher recipient will be able to reschedule their chosen date for free.


What if no Badgers show on the voucher recipient's Badger Watch?

As Badgers are wild animals, and therefore a little unpredictable at times, in the unlikely instance that no Badgers show on the chosen date of the recipient's watch, we will offer an additional complimentary excluisve use of the Badger Hide to the recipient of the Gift Voucher. However we have so far had 100% success in badger activity each night!
