My children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The staff were amazing - really friendly answering a million questions asked by my children. We spent some time pond dipping then finished by feeding the ducks.

Very acceptable if you are in Weymouth without your own transport as it's only a short way from the centre of town. It has good paths through the marsh and reedbeds and lots of potential for spotting lots of birds and wildfowl

The recently re-thatched Visitor Centre is well located on the reserve and provides coffee and cakes and much more. Great for kids and nature activities including pond dipping. It has a viewing window out onto the lake and reed beds with the usual access to telescopes and excellently informative and attentive staff. The Reserve itself provides a lovely walk with... More
