The walks around the nature reserve are lovely and there is a good variety of trails to follow. The best loved part was the treehouse hide.

Took the two hour guided tour for the kids in the afternoon, which kept them entertained throughout. We found frogs, toads and all sorts of creepy crawlies in a field and then pond dipping for tiny marine life. Very well led by our guide who was excellent with the children. Setting is beautiful.

Excellent sightings of kingfishers. Very friendly, helpful and well informed wardens at the reserve.

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!
