We visited this place at the end of a busy day and it was a wonderful way of winding down walking around the lakes. The walks varied in length and time we chose a 1.3 mile work that took us 35 minutes and heard the nightingales sing magic!

Wonderful place to walk around and plenty to see , even if there aren't too many birds around. Lovely Butterflies, Moths , Damselflies and Chasers as well as flowers. Nice Cafeteria serving a wide selection of food and drinks. We'll be back.

I visited for the first time in July along with my husband. After having read the reviews on trip advisor I had high hopes for this place. However when we visited a map in the visitor centre advised that due to work on the railway bridge there is no access to the park north of the railway line. This cuts... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while in the area. It was a rainy day so we only spent a couple of hours but you could easily spend a lazy day following the different trails in nice weather. It was beautiful and an honour to be able to share the natural habitat with the wide variety of birds... More

The car park is ONLY £2 all day (use to be £1) which I think is great as you can easily spend a good 4-6 hours there. The nature reserve has lots of different walks you can go on which is great. The children love to explore. They have a great outdoor sandpit and water area. Our children can spend... More
