The day we went was threatening rain, but we were extremely lucky to have had it dry during our visit. The wind was whipping across the estuary, which made it more exciting watching the clouds scudding across the sky. This is a well laid out...More

Excellent place of interest whether for a long or short stop. Conwy tidal estuary, scenic views, birds, dragonflies, wildlife, walks+shop, toilets and cafe. Well worth the visit

This is a lovely place to take a walk. The reserve is alongside the Conwy estuary. Plenty of bird hides. Conwy Casle and the mountains are part of the backdrop. A few wild ponies. Lovely cafe aver looking a large pond.

A very relaxing place where the RSPB has built a very good hide with large windows next to toilets and café. There is a path around the lake but the weather was too bad whilst we were there to use, so the hide was wonderful....More
