Lotherton is a grand Edwardian country residence, retaining all the character of a charming family home. 

There is something for all the family to enjoy here; from the house to the bird garden, the gardens and exhibitions, the shop and stables, to the woodland walks and playgrounds.  

A jewel in Lotherton’s crown is its bird garden. Home to over 200 magnificent species, it is one of the most famous and comprehensive collections of rare and endangered birds in England, from flamingos and snowy owls to cassowaries, hornbills and the magnificent Andean Condors.
