    This is a lovely place for bird-watching, with areas of water and hides. It's also good for a relaxing walk, or to take in the views of the Lincolnshire and north Norfolk coastline. Feels like a diffe...  more »

    Great walk around the reserve. Blew the cobwebs away and felt refreshed afterwards. Would recommend to anyone in the area.  more »

  • Only about 3 miles from Skegness, but a million miles away in other respects. Peaceful, quiet and with an excellent cafĂ©. I walked from Skegness along the edge of the dunes and back along the (quiet) road. It is about 6 miles return. Take care on the dunes though. Always keep as far too the right as you can (when walking from Skegness) to avoid getting your path blocked by the many little streams in the marsh. The OS map isn't much help!
  • We love this place so might be a bit biased! New visitor centre is lovely and cafe well priced with a range of cakes and other options. The Nature Reserve is for birds, we've seen amazing sights of thousands of birds taking off at the same time - you have to be lucky of course. You can also walk to the beach. You can walk a long way if you want.
  • Swish new visitor center, nice clean toilets. The reserve is bleak, so great if you like that sort of thing. On a weekday you can have a mile long stretch of beach to yourself.
  • Fantastic cafe and shop. Beautiful beaches, woods, bird hides and lakes. Bike lane being laid.
  • Nice place for a walk and a picnic. Reasonable parking too
