  • Beautiful nature reserve. Plenty car parking. Fantastic floating village. Cafe and little shop. Covid 19 spoiling the shops being open but overall it's a great walk and well kept. Take walking boots or wellies on a wet day. Families and couples will enjoy this circular walk
  • Great place to walk around for a few hours. Kids had a great time exploring, finding big sticks and getting muddy. There's a playground, cafe, toilets and little gift shop too. No entrance fee - parking was £5 per car for the day (as at Dec 2020), which is great value.
