For families walking or cycling through the beautiful nature reserve, the nature centre is a great stopping off point. Plenty of loos plus there are some (free) child-friendly resources out back, including a sandmartin hide (great for older kids who are able to keep quiet!). The coffee shop/cafe sells very tasty food that is fairly reasonably priced, and the ice creams are particularly delicious. There's also a very nice gift shop that sells duck feed very cheaply - again, great for keeping little ones occupied!
Very large site, loads of wildlife to see. Allow a few hours to fully explore and bring binoculars. There is a well stocked cafe and shop near the car pack. Free water too which is a nice touch.
Great place. First visit due to the distance from home. Lots of wildlife to see - saw our first ever whitethroat. It'll take several visits before we get around all the paths, never mind spend time in the hides or looking through the screens.
An amazing and huge nature reserve full of birds and other wildlife. Great for families, twitchers, or just walking around the lakes or along the river. Check out the cafe/shop in the middle of the lake too
A great place for a day out. Lots of space to walk, almost all paved so suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. Parking is £3 but entry to the reserve is free. There is a nice cafe in the visitors centre but this can get very busy at peak times.
