“Great place for a walk”
Lovely place off the beaten path. Our children enjoyed the supplied nets fishing for bugs in the pond and exploring the grounds. The boardwalks and views are very nice.
Well worth taking time out to visit if in the area. On the Solway Firth, the impressive wetlands seem to attract a vast array of different birds. Even as someone who is not normally interested in such things, it was still a very enjoyable visit.
Since we only had 7 miles left of Hadrian's wall path on the last day, we decided to wander around a bit. Well worth an hour or two of walking without a heavy pack.
First time visit. What a lovely reserve for a walk. Easy to park. Off the beaten track. Staff welcoming great and a superb variation in habitats: Wood, meadow, farmland, bog, heath, hedgerow - it is a SUPERB walk. However and this is the weird bit: for such an array of offerings…
We visited on a chilly day in May. The hides are well placed next to a variety of habitats and one was great for disabled access. Everything is well signposted and well presented and the visitor's centre interesting. Well worth a morning.
