They have gluten free cakes and goodies and also offer gluten free bread for sandwiches. I can highly recommended the millionaires shortbread, very sweet and... More

Fantastic time @ messy play. Visited with two children under three and they both enjoyed themselves, activities were fantastic all in all great day! Was not impressed with the member of staff who felt he could push into the very long, slow line in the cafe. When he was told excuses me I was next by the lady in front,... More

Hello Leah. Thanks for your comment - I'm delighted to hear that you and your children enjoyed our FreePlay Friday. I'm sorry to hear about your experience in the coffee shop, however. I have investigated this immediately and identified the member of staff involved. I have spoken to him about what happened and made it clear that this must not... More

Took my eight year old daughter here as she loves coming to the reserve to play, look around and do any of the numerous quizzes and games out on by the staff. Staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. Managed to squeeze some birding in too which saw the Great White Egret, Redshank, Curlew, Whimbrel, Lapwing, Common Sandpiper and many... More

Good to be calling in here again - this time lucky to see Great White Egret, which apparently has not been seen on the reserve before. Lovely walk in the sunshine and the wonderful Welsh Oggy for lunch - supplied I believe, by the local butcher in Conwy, Edwards. Worth going for the oggy and birds are a bonus !

This RSPB nature reserve is well worth a visit even if your time is limited. You can just call in and have a quick cup of tea and some delicious homemade cake whilst spotting much wildlife through the cafe window or you can explore further with interesting walks around the reserve.. There are also many children's activities .

A really lovely spot in North Wales. Beautiful views to enjoy before you have even set foot in the reserve area. The staff were wonderful. Friendly, helpful and informative. Cafe was nice, we just had drinks but the food looked good. The long trail took us about 40 / 50 minutes with an active 5 year old, but with older... More

Nature lovers will be assured of a good day out. This reserve is really well managed with well maintained pathways for the less able. With its situation on the Conwy estuary with both wetland and woodland habitats the variety of birds is amazing. With hides strategically situated for viewing and photographing and not forgetting the abundance of wild flowers, the... More
