This was so not like the other WWT sites. It's a total nature reserve and you are very much at a distance. Paths are very muddy and wellies would be needed. Shop and cafe are good.

Joined in the badger watch lastnight was absolutely brilliant. Saw a total of four badgers all at the same time watched them eating peanuts and licking honey from a tree trunk. Rhiannon our ranger was extremely informative and very welcoming. An altogether awesome experience!!!!!!

We were very surprised at how well the site is laid out. The towers give a brilliant viewing vantage point We saw the black tailed godwit and large variety of birds. A stunning reserve. We will be back. Thank you for this gem.

Stayed overnight in the self catering farmhouse. It has a good kitchen and comfortable lounge space. Highlight is the nightly visits from local badgers who come close to the lounge window at dusk.

Plenty of water fowl and other birds along with a few hides to watch from so you do not scare the birds. This is a protected wetland area (somewhat rare in the UK) so the birds are comfortable here making it an ideal spot for...More

It really is about 12 miles and off the beaten track so you really would need a car to get there
