Elmley Nature Reserve, Isle of SheppeyWith its 3,300 acres spread across the south side of Kent’s Isle of Sheppey, Elmley has been the UK’s only family-owned national nature reserve since the 1980s. Back then, rewilding – the act of regenerating landscapes to encourage thriving wildlife – wasn’t at the top of many farmers’ agendas. Philip Merricks persevered here, becoming a pioneer in conserving the countryside, and now these marshes are home to rare birdlife. Merricks’s daughter took over the land more recently, opening up a restored farmhouse B&B and a cluster of smart shepherd huts.
