We visited on a chilly day in May. The hides are well placed next to a variety of habitats and one was great for disabled access. Everything is well signposted and well presented and the visitor's centre interesting. Well worth a morning.

Came across this on our first foray to Bowness on Solway. Guys (volunteers) in the centre were friendly, helpful and informative. Having been away from walking for some time they explained the route and the going very well. The boardwalk over boggy bits was superb...More

The reserve has a visitor centre built in part of the farm buildings and has basic refreshments as well as information and toilets. A pond and boardwalk area lies just off the free car parking and a local 'dabbin' or clay and straw building is...More
