The complete Tamar Valley drive is just picture perfect, and the Wetlands is just an extension of the River system, birds of all varieties and amazing Jigsaw puzzles pictures in all directions. It was a beautiful day the day we visited but I dont think that would matter its such a lovely spot, if you are at all into the environment or just love the planet we live on, go see this area its a pleasure to behold.

We stumbled upon this place, but ended up spending a couple of very pleasant hours there. A lovely peaceful place to walk. There were some families of swans with cygnets, and many other species of birds.

You can do a short walk for the 2km return walk. The environment is beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed the birds and saw great egret, black swans, water hens etc etc.

We spent a couple of hours on a Sunday morning in the sun, a lovely walk for a small donation, we saw plenty of flora and fauna, including a copperhead snake basking in the sun and a small lizard.....well worth the walk, thank you to the guardians..

Pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this! Great walk, helpful staff but an approximate length would be great! Do it!
