A truly lovely tranquil place to pass a morning or afternoon. Lots of birdlife (we even spotted a couple of kingfisher's) and other animals in the area.

Lovely water vistas and a good variety of waterfowl to see. You might even see a bittern from the bittern hide. Nice flat walks, and you can also cycle.

A good winter walk. Fine hide with the pine smell of a sauna overlooking the weir in the lake. A tufted duck the cheeriest bird. Well paved. Not enough to draw me out of London again, I'd go elsewhere, but a good getaway for an...More
