A beautiful and peaceful lake with numerous bird watching hides dotted around the perimeter walk. We saw lapwings, cormorants, grebes, bullfinches and a weasel, as well as the swans, ducks, gulls and geese. We also met and chatted to one of the wardens (No.80 -...More
This nature reserve is a truly beautiful to visit and I would highly recommend it to those who are looking for a nice, long walk in the local area.

Enjoyed the walk around the lake. Took about two hours but that was with lots of stopping to take photos. Path was good all around though one are of about 20 yards looks like it would be muddy if wet. Nice hides

I think there may be a picnic bench in the meadow opposite the car park. There are definitely benches in some of the hides. For example, to the right of the meadow is the Pioneer hide. Also from the car park if you take the path to your right this will bring you to the Paul Britton hide (viewing at ground level or up some stairs) and follow that path further along and you will come to the Feeding Station hide, worth stopping off as it is popular with the birds. Can't recall seeing seats anywhere else.
