Where to Visit a Meadow

The majority of our Open Meadows are not generally open to the public, so it’s a great opportunity to visit these wonderful hidden gems. Often they are open in June and early July, when the flowers are at their most prolific.

Dates of Open Meadows are posted on the Events page.

Sometimes a meadow owner will decide on an ad hoc opening if they think their meadow is looking especially lovely at another time of year. News of this will be sent via email to everyone on our members list.

Permanent open access to wildflower meadows

Devon Wildlife Trust meadows are always open. These two are recommended to visit end of June or early July:

If you know of another lovely meadow with open public access, please contact us to let us know.
