Really enjoyed our trip to the Wolseley centre on sunny afternoon in March. Whilst there is nothing complicated here it was a really nice opportunity to be out and amongst the wildlife. There is a good mixture of grassland and made up paths meaning that...More

We took our two grandchildren aged 9 and 7 here for the afternoon. It got them away from their tablets and computers and into the fresh air. It was free other than a nominal sum for a bag of duck food and clues for the...More

As a member of this trust it is great to visit and see what the trust are doing here and within the county. Took my grandaughter for a walk around to see the wildfowl, she loved it. Great place for families to visit.

What a delightful place! Something to interest all ages. Lots of paths (with warnings of possibility of being muddy for some), not so big that you could get lost, but plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. Small shop and cafe.

Great little reserve with lots of water and interest for children. It is possible to feed the birds with proper duck food. We saw water rail, coal tits and nuthatch among other birds. Worth a half day visit
