The hides are in great locations around Rye Harbour and despite the area being popular among beach-goers or walkers, the birds aren't disturbed!

It's surprising to find such a relaxing place 5 minutes from Rye. All ways through the reserve are nearly new. For those wanting more than having w walk, the information centre offers plenty of activities to watch birdife.

Liked the well laid out path and bird hides . Have a very 'olde' worldly feel to the place. The pub there , the William the conqueror does a very good pub lunch.

we began to wonder where we were going as we passed through endless rathy seedy industrial sites but finally arrived in the still pretty old harbour village. The views are great with some interesting houses, a few very smart and modern. WQell worth the detour if in the area especially if you like boats.

we walked round the suggested routes in beautiful sunshine, stopping to watch coromorants and grebes on the little lakes in the area - the sea was beside us, a really lovely area for the public to enjoy.
