“The best things in life are free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

OK, so you do need to like nature and wildlife to make the most of your time here.. But today we saw Konik's ponies, Marsh Harriers, a bittern, ruff, garganey, blackcaps, marsh frogs, green sandpipers, snipe, skylarks, marsh warbler, tree creepers, woodpeckers and long tailed birdtits ( won't lety you use the right name) along with large flocks of great birdtits. It was a glorious sunny day and we spent six hours here dividing our time between three hides. The walk length was about three miles. Where else could you get so much for free? We live in a glorious country and all you need is open eyes, open ears, binoculars and a bird book. No dogs and wheelchairs would be possible but quite heavy going.

“Far from the madding crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

It is a remote location and during my visit there weren't many other people around. There are plenty of opportunities for walks around the area with good pubs on the river Stour but if you are walking across the fields be prepared for mud!
