After the success of #BondGoesWild in the UK, we've decided we want to take it abroad!

For anyone who has missed it, Bond Goes Wild is a new and exciting campaign that we introduced to eight locations last year. The main aim is to show youngsters (and adults!) just how exciting the gardens and countryside around our sites truly is.

It was so popular in the UK that, as of Easter 2017, we're now introducing #BondGoesWild and a range of wonderful outdoor activities to six of our overseas sites. There will be a team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides on hand to give walks, talks and help with activities. We provide great resources for '12 wild things to do' which includes an activities booklet, bug hunting pots and a magnifying glass so you can really get up close and personal with your findings. Nets, bowls and colouring equipment is also all available for your outdoor adventures.

We're lucky enough to have a large collection of different properties right across the UK and Europe which means we have a great opportunity to introduce our guests to a variety of changeable and wonderful wildlife. It's our goal to get as many people outside, investigating the natural world as possible and now, with 14 locations onboard, there is even more to see and do than before.

Each of the sites is different and here at Le Manoir du Hilguy in Brittany a wonderful countryside stretches out from the site and, beyond that, a rugged coastline waits to greet you.

To help youngsters investigate the world around them their '12 things to do' booklet will provide all sorts of inspiration while you're out and about around our various locations, such as 'make a tree rubbing', 'find a minibeast' or even just 'identify an animal track'. It's great fun and introduces children to the differences in habitat that occur across Europe, and how this affects the flora and fauna that live there.

At Hilguy a fun programme of events is also a part of the calendar. Breton games prove to be a great way of learning about the traditional games of the region. Gardening and family cooking courses, children's treasure hunts and craft sessions are all set to be a part of the programme here too.

We'd love to see guests get out there and discover all the hidden wonders that can be found around our sites. And we hope you're just as excited for #BondGoesWild as we are!

You can see some of the pictures that are already being shared by guests on our Facebook pages from across our different locations. Take a look at the hashtag #BondGoesWild. Alternatively, you can find out how to stay at one of the sites by simply entering your details at the bottom of the page to receive a free brochure.

#BondGoesWild is also taking place in the Dordogne, the islands of La Gomera, Madeira, Majorca and down in southern Spain. The UK destinations taking part are: Anglesey, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Kent, the Lake District, Pembrokeshire and the Trossachs National Park!
