Visited here whilst on holiday in the area. Well spent £5. Friendly staff, good souvenir shop, informative, nice cafe. Good overall size, well laid out hides (great for the rainy day we had) and viewing screens. Hope to return again, with some sunshine!

Always a pleasure to stop off here on our way to Anglesey. Welcoming volunteers in reception and lots of gift ideas in the shop as well as bird food and feeders etc. - and always an interesting selection of birds on view.

We've been visiting this reserve for more than 17 years and love to see how it has developed. The wildlife which changes with the seasons is a pleasure to view from the many hides and from the seats along the estuary. Would recommend anyone, young...More
