This is a very relaxing place for a walk: birds, wild flowers and herbs, small trout in the river and the ocasional butterfly. We ended up walking a lot further than we had intended so were a bit tired by the time we got back to town but we did detour to the main road and found a nice pub... More

Lovely reserve but if going this September do not have exposed skin and use lots of insect repellant. My daughter and I were bitten by mosquitos yesterday and are now covered in bites, itching constantly! I was literally squashing the blighters off as we walked around.

There are so many Mosquitos that stole my blood that all the prettiness was overshadowed by me scratching myself as if I had fleas for the whole time I was there. I'd have been bitten less if I was in an all you can eat cannibal competition

I love this place. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and clear your head, this place is recommended. Not large, but very beautiful with the river running through, it is a lovely walk with plenty of places to sit and ponder.

An hour worth spent walking along the paths and boards that connect to different parts of the reserve. Usual peaceful scene: swans nesting, ducks, dragonflies. Good for kids.

I really like the location of this reserve, being so close to town it is ideal for visitors. There are lots of positives to this reserve however a lot of negatives. The first part of the river you encounter is full of people dumping rubbish ie stove, fridge doors etc, not the most appealing. I really like that the river... More

A beautiful spot. So quiet, we saw only 1 other visitor. Parking nearby. Enchanting flocks of black/irridescent blue dragonflies, butterflies, coot nest. Takes about an hour to meander through the reed beds on the boardwalks, and complete the circuit of paths open to public. Free too!

Good little nature reserve visited Jan 2014. Ideal location, not far from the train station. Walking boots recommended, as it does get wet in wintertime. Plenty to do for just over an hour and half. Best to visit in spring / summertime when the reserve is at its best. Good start for a walk for a walk along the itchen... More

This lovely pice of nature is just a few minutes walk from the cathedral and is truly picturesque, a great place to lose yourself for an hour or two.

I love walking and this is one of my favourite places in winchester to walk especially after getting lunch at the sunday farmers market, you feel you are in the country watching the wildlife you see something different each time and you may come face to face with cows or swans nesting its a lovely place to go.
