  • We came across this reserve quite by chance. As one who requires the use of a wheelchair my wife was delighted to be able to access ALL the areas via the substantial boardwalk. The hides were of high ...  read more »
  • This reserve is well worth a visit although it is much less known than the larger reserves of the Norfolk coast. The staff were friendly and informative, the trails are fully boardwalked, signage is g...  read more »
  • We spent a lovely couple hours wandering around here. It was a quiet day, so we were able to spend plenty of time in the hides. It's much bigger than we expected. We thought that we might be there an ...  read more »
  • Great place to visit and do so regularly. Boardwalks easy going. Hides good. Always something to see or its just a lovely walk. Over the years have seen a lot from Marsh Harrier, Barn Owl, Water Vole to dragonflies and butterflies. Check the website for opening times but don't visit on a Monday (its closed).
  • One of the best places to see a wide variety of birds and animals, we visited 3 times in March and have seen Water vole, Monkjack deer, Brambling, Red pole, Bull finch, many other types of birds and of course the Marsh harriers (2 females and a male). The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, the hides are well placed and have good walk ways to get around (access-able for all). If you are into nature and in North Norfolk this place is well worth a visit. Also they are open everyday, 8am to either 4pm or 6pm.
  • A superb day at Sculthorpe Moor. Stunning views of a goshawk, bull finches and siskins. Always love going to this reserve easy walking on the boardwalks and lots of friendly staff and great webcams dotted around the place.
  • Fantastic reserve, with excellent hides and a variety of bird species. The volunteers are so enthusiastic which makes the visit even more worthwhile. If you are 'into' birds, either as a devout 'birder' or a 'bad birdwatcher' look no further. We saw buzzards and bullfinches as well as many other species on the day of our visit. The walkways are well-maintained too, and interspersed with many native plants and trees.
