Our group was 5 adults and 3 children. The good = Excellent walks with hides along the way for bird spotting. Children enjoyed finding the items on the activity sheets. The bad = The Cafe/Restaurant. We found this to be very poor. Very small dishes for not so small prices. The food was disappointing (all microwaved). Our group left still... More

This place has everything going for it. Plenty of parking space, nice shop, good cafe, an area for children and a terrific nature reserve to walk around whether on a short walk or a longer one. The walk is flat throughout, so suitable for everyone. In particular I recommend the walk around the whole site where you see different habitats... More

We had not planned to go here, but saw it, and since we like to watch birds at home in the US we decided to stop. We were here just in time to catch a guided bird walk. I really recommend the guided walk. You will see a lot more birds. Since we are from the US, we got a... More

Often when I find my self between meetings and on my own in Conwy I pop to the RSPB cafe, nice venue, with good coffee. Simple menu but delicious and good value. Nice shop too for cards and gifts. You do not need to be a bird spotter to enjoy!

Whether you are a bird lover & RSPB member like us, or just enjoy a good, level walk on firm ground with spectacular views then this is a place worth spending at least half a day at. There is a decent sized carpark - they close the barrier at 5pm so make sure you arrive early enough to get round... More

Having worked on the old reserve for many years and tackled many different jobs there, when I revisited the reserve it was a pleasant experience to see the fantastic improvements that had been made, albeit that what we had done had been all covered and restructured. This is one of those places that a day is never long enough to... More

I was surprised how easy this was to get to from either the Bodnant Garden or Conwy side of the river. Well worth joining a Saturday morning 2-hour guided walk (£2 plus usual entry fee) with the extremely knowledgeable and friendly volunteers. Best to carry your own binoculars but the guides take high magnification scopes for the group to use.... More

The staff who greeted us when we walked in were very helpful and chatty. The whole reserve was beautiful to walk around and no litter. The scenery was superb too so we'll definitely visit again! :)
