  • Great place for a pleasant walk with the dog and meet plenty of friendly people. Scenery great and plenty of places to take the opportunity to look at the bird life that is at the reserve. Plenty of events take place. Great shop to be able to buy souvenirs and get a drink.
  • Great place for some peace and quiet. Plenty of hides to watch nature go by and keep you dry on those wet days. Very friendly staff.
  • What a lovely quiet space to walk around....well apart from the glorious birdsong that's all around! Toilet facilities always a plus point and at £2 all day car parking what's not to like.
  • Lovely little nature reserve - Great for walking and wildlife watching. Has visitors centre, toilets and carparking. Hides can be found dotted around the reserve for bird watching over the lakes.
  • Very pretty place and lots to see if you keep your eyes open very well kept footpath too.
