  • Great nature reserve, pleasant walk from Holme or Thornham. Wonderful wild coastline on one side and arable land or marshes on the other. Even better now you can get a meal and drink, as well as loo's.
  • Big skies, big breezes, big sands. Plus wonderful birdlife. And a very helpful member of staff on a closed day.
  • Such a beautiful part of the world. Not a great area for young children, inaccessible for buggies and a long long walk to the sea, so older children will love it, definitely walking sandals and bring a flask. No toilets
  • Good place to blow out the cobwebs with a nice view and an enjoyable walk
  • What a lovely place to see wild life. 3 hides, sandy dunes and fir trees. We saw spoonbill in one hide, great white egret in another. A murmuration of starlings. They have café and toilets
