FAQs for Adults

Q: Where can I find the Fairy Doors?

A: Have a look at the map, it is the most up to date record of existing fairy doors.

Q: We’ve done all the doors already, are there any new ones?

A: Probably. I am checking a different group of doors each week and usually try and add a few news ones as I go, keep an eye on the map for the most up to date list of fairy doors.

Q: Can you put a fairy door at ….

A: Maybe! Send me a list of places where you think I should/could put doors and I will have a look. Sometimes an obvious place doesn’t have a door because of difficulty getting permission. Doors are never placed near businesses.

Q: Can I add some fairy doors of my own?

A: As mentioned above, I am happy to add new locations to the trail if I can get permissions and they are not near businesses as this is supposed to be an adventure in nature, not a shopping trip!

Q: I found a loose Fairy Door, what should I do?

A: Please, please rescue it and if possible drop it off to Iris & Dora for relocating. Or message me at and I will arrange to collect it.

Q: I can’t find the fairy door at ….., is it still there?

A: Have a look at the map and see if it has been marked as missing and also this group to see if anyone can help you to locate it? Some of them are a bit tricky.

Q: Can I help?

A: Yes, yes, yes please. I am really struggling to get around to all of the locations to check if they are all still there and would appreciate it if you have previously visited a door and are in the vicinity of it, perhaps you could just check that it is still there and let me know so I can update the map accordingly.

FAQs for Children

Q: Why didn’t I see any fairies?

A: Fairies are very shy and private, they can only be spotted if you are really really quiet, perhaps they heard you coming and hid away. Why not leave them a little flower or an acorn to let them know that you visited. Remember don’t touch the doors.

Q: Why can’t I open any of the doors?

A: Fairies use their magic to open the doors, sadly humans are not able to open them, but we can still enjoy the beautiful areas where the fairies live and do our bit to help keep the island clean and tidy (fairies don’t like litter)

Q: Why aren’t there any fairy door at my favourite beach/walk ?

A: We don’t know why fairies pick the places that they do, to build their homes. What we do know is that they don’t like mess and rubbish, if you want to encourage fairies to live in a particular favourite place that you visit often, then make sure it is tidy and litter free. Why not organise a beach clean with your friends?
