Come face to face with bison in Leicestershire

Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

Home to a herd of American Bison and Red Deer, Bouverie Lodge near Melton Mowbray is a farm with a difference. Pull on your wellies and explore the footpaths to see them close up.


Join the visitors flocking to Bouverie Lodge Bison and Venison Farm, 6 miles from Melton Mowbray… you might be enticed to stay longer.

At the famed farm shop you'll be spoilt for choice with delicious bison steaks, gluten-free burgers and sausages and venison joints. The meat is all butchered on-site.

But that's not all. Ruth, aka @bisonqueen, offers top class B&B accommodation. Stay overnight and sample the renowned pork pies, Melton hunt cake and Stilton in the town centre or visit Melton Carnegie Museum to learn the history behind fox hunting and Melton Mowbray’s famous foods.

Pick a Tuesday to visit and as well as the twice-weekly street market -a livestock, farmers' and antiques market takes place.
