I enjoy coming here but it is limited with what it has to offer. Very muddy underfoot for most of the time and after rain is particularly boggy. I've only found one bird hide and I believe there is another, but that's it. It really could do with more hides around the walks. The bird hide I use does have... More

All the moors areas are sadly underused and undervisited. They are full of birds and beautiful views. Although to my taste, they were all better when less developed, the numbers are now slowly growing. In the past when I visited I was always on my own, but now there are always cars parked up and other walkers, however it is... More

I visited from Australia with my husband whose formerly from Doncaster. Both if us were impressed with the setting and wildlife at Hatfield Moor - so much so we went back for a second day. Outstanding asset for Doncaster and the region.

My family and I visit Hatfield Moore with our dog regularly and love the beautiful walks it has to offer. There are plenty of different routes you can take, some have lake views and others have peat views, we love the variety of wildlife and flora it has. The Moore is open all year round and is free of charge... More

I've visited this area several times and have never been disappointed - there's always plenty to see and enjoy and it's a great place for a quiet stroll. My main interest is in bird life but there's plenty of wildlife around - varieties depending on the season - and butterflies abound i summer. Highly recommended.

Enjoy going here for the Birdlife, there is always plenty to see and also the other Wildlife. Great for walking. It's good for getting away from everything for a short while.

I live on a farm that backs onto Thorne Moors. It's a great natural habitat the view recently ruined by a wind farm. I used to look at deer. Badgers etc, now I see white sails outside my bedroom window. However still worth a visit.
