“Wales at its most beautiful with wonderful staff”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

It may have been raining but we had a brilliant few hours walking around Ynys Hir popping into hides, walking through fields of sheep, spotting birds (even though we weren't there at the best time of year), and generally relishing the peaceful and stunning surroundings.

A very knowledgeable volunteer helped us understand more about the reserve, the work that goes into maintaining it and the wildlife that lives there. In fact all the staff we met were super helpful and lovely, and clearly love their work. Great day!

“A great Reserve!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Though the weather on our Friday visit was curtailed due to the heavy rains we still enjoyed an hour spent there! It was good to see that school children who had arrived for the day were being kept busy and having fun with the activities that were planned despite the weather! We returned the next day and though some paths were boggy and muddy we battled on and still enjoyed a splendid day there! A great Reserve with some delightful walks and RSPB Volunteers that are friendly and helpful! A real pleasure to visit!

Very good selection of trails & hides. Helpful staff in RSPB shop. Bring your own food & drink though as there is none here!
