Beautiful view as you walk around the lake. Loads of wildlife and some very peace hides for you to catch up on your thoughts. Would recommend if your in the area. Shop is full of little treasures and not too expensive.

Nice place to go to walk around the circular walk or to sit and study water fowl and birdlife. Small café needs a few more tables and seats to accommodate demand.

Easily accessible and lots of information regarding the birds that you might see - if that's what you are in to. Even the longest walk is pretty easy for little legs.

Nick's review says there's limited parking - mainly on the road - but when we visited a little while ago there was a good sized car park. Has that changed?
