I attended a one-day small mammal course here and it was the first time I'd been to the reserve. It's very well looked after, there are lots of critters around even though they're quite clever at hiding themselves away. We heard a nightingale and many...More

This is perfect for a walk with young children. We saw all sorts of birds and flowers and it is fairly flat so good for little legs. The bluebells are beautiful too.
