Owlet forms part of the Coversands Heathland that once covered large parts of northern Lincolnshire, however in more recent times natural birch colonisation has developed on the site.

Existing remnants of the heathland can still be seen from the circular surfaced path, which makes it suitable for visitors of all abilities. Visit in summer to see lots of butterflies, including purple hairstreak, small copper and brimstone.
