Rural estates

We are responsible for the stewardship of land across four estates in the United Kingdom and Spain, most of which is designated and protected for its environmental or conservation interests.

By introducing and developing sustainable land management practices, informed by the latest scientific research, we are protecting and enabling some of the strongest populations of rare flora and fauna as well as endangered and red listed species to thrive. These include waders like curlew, lapwing and redshank on the Abbeystead Estate in Lancashire, UK, and Iberian eagles and lynx in La Garganta in Spain.

We are recognised for our exemplary land management practices, receiving the Belleuropa Award for exceptional work in maintaining, protecting and improving the biodiversity at La Garganta, as well as receiving accreditation from Wildlife Estates Scotland for delivering long term habitat and wildlife management, sustainably, and complying with all legal requirements and relevant codes of practice, including animal welfare standards on the Reay Forest Estate in Scotland.
