Total species seen at this site: 123
This delightful arts and crafts cottage is nestled into a Charnwood hillside amidst acid grassland and shrubs. There is also a large semi-natural oak woodland which is open to visitors.
The garden is semi-natural and has much wildlife interest. The bird feeders by the house and cafe attract Coal Tits and Nuthatches as well as a range of other species. The grassland contains a number of interesting floral species, including Pignut. Invertebrates abound and Stoneywell is one of the very few places in Leicestershire where the spectacular Ashy-grey Slug has been found.
