This was our first visit to this well managed nature reserve and had a thoroughly enjoyable walk from the Stodmarsh carpark to Grove Ferry.

What a lovely hidden gem this is on our doorstep! We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely wander round the reserve today and are looking forward to returning again soon and following the longer trail. For real nature enthusiasts, this should be a must-visit!

Lovely little village with a pub and this nature reserve....great for a stroll after Sunday lunch or for nature/bird watching but it’s quite small x

This reserve always has something of interest and has turned up many major rarities. The short walk through the wet wood has resting places and the Reed Marsh Hide view has been enhanced and packed with wildfowl.

We love this nature reserve and always visit when staying in the area. Lovely well marked and signposted paths lead to several hides. Superb bird watching. The paths are an easy stroll...you can take a short stroll or and longer walk across the reserve. Convenient...More
