The farm is home to the whole of the Salmonsbury Meadows Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). These unimproved neutral meadows are one of the richest and largest examples of this habitat in the Cotswolds with uncommon plants such as southern marsh orchid and early marsh orchid. The neighbouring fields to the south of the SSSI are currently being restored to species rich grassland. At the south of the farm is Salmonsbury Camp Scheduled Ancient Monument.
Located just on the outskirts of the busy tourist village, Bourton-on-the-Water, it’s hard to believe that this tranquil sanctuary exists so close by. Greystones Farm nature
reserve boasts an archaeology walk, with a scheduled ancient monument dating back to the Neolithic age and visible ramparts. It is an excellent place to escape to, with glorious wildflower meadows. The River Eye runs through the reserve and provides a multitude of wildlife to discover, including heron, butterflies, otter and the much threatened water vole. Two leaflets are available to help you explore the farm with further interpretation boards and audio posts dotted around.
