“Ynys Hir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The reason for visiting the Machynlleth area. Always something to see and some delightful walks, but you will need waterproof footwear.

“My favourite reserve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

A great reserve, out of the way but worth the effort. A great mix of habitats and loads to explore. Would recommend some binoculars and if possible a scope but not essential. The tracks and hides were good, loved the tree house hide. A gem of a reserve!

“Lovely walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The walks around the nature reserve are lovely and there is a good variety of trails to follow. The best loved part was the treehouse hide.

“Great day out for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

Took the two hour guided tour for the kids in the afternoon, which kept them entertained throughout. We found frogs, toads and all sorts of creepy crawlies in a field and then pond dipping for tiny marine life. Very well led by our guide who was excellent with the children. Setting is beautiful.
