“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is a brilliant place to visit, the staff were very friendly and informative. Luckily we arrived just in time to see Lady lay her first egg, which was amazing. You do not have to be a bird fanatic to enjoy this venue, just enjoy nature and watching it. Its easy just to chill here an watch the world go by.
Well done to the staff.

“Another lovely annual visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We try and go here every year to see Lady. The staff are always welcoming especially to the kids. It has been revamped since last year with a dedicated area for kids. This is especially welcome as sometimes other patrons have been a bit off with the kids. Having the kids area sends a clear message that kids are welcome and also allows them to keep out of way of any grumpy fellow patrons! One downside of revamp is hides only have telescopes which some people find difficult although they do allow you to fix your position better.

“A lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This the place to go if you're interested in anything to do with nature or birds.
The Ospreys had just arrived and there was so much excitement ,the views here from the hide are so good with binoculars and scopes provided.
In the visitor center there is so much to see and do,with tea ,coffee and snacks available.
The entry fee of £4.00 is money well spent.
Go and see you will love it.
