  • I must admit we don't visit the nature reserve only the book shop and museum. We make it a point of visiting the book shop as it has a wonderful selection of second hand books at very good prices. The small natural history museum is also worth visiting and there is a window looking out at a selection of bird feeders which had at least six varieties of birds feeding. There are new toilets and a good sized room to have drinks or snacks in which have been bought on the property. There are also nature trails for children to follow with adults which provide the children with educational and fun things to do. There is an admission charge for the nature reserve but it is well worth a visit.
  • A lovely nature reserve carved into the chalk countryside at Monkton. The staff are friendly and helpful there are good activities and plenty to see, a well stocked book 📖 shop and very reasonable entry price.
  • Lovely staff and a beautiful nature reserve. Many activities to try out and a book shop. I recommend it to all.
  • Really enjoyed our morning here, the way it's been layed out means you can see a lot & never be far from shelter.
  • Great afternoon out with the grandkids who enjoyed the activities. Helpful staff at reception was encouraging and generous to the grandkids and facilitated daughter-in-law's plant shopping.
