I bring my dog here when the ground is really wet elsewhere. The footpaths as really good in all weathers. Obviously the main attraction is the wildlife, wildfowl and waders in particular. The various hides offer plenty of viewing opportunities. Dogs must be kept on...More

Great variety of birds to see, including Spoonbills, Avocets, Lapwing, Egrets, Golden Plover, Marsh Harrier, Kestrels, etc, etc. However, the "High Tide Walks" are disappointing. Have visited on 2 such occasions, to find that even at high tide there are loads of mud banks upon...More

I haven’t walked here for some years and was stunned at the amount or regeneration that has happened. Good walking on pathways suitable for everyone, might be bumpy for chairs! Lovely spotting the willow sculptures. Lovely.

Enjoyed walking along the signposted paths. Views are very good over to Burrow Mump and the Quantocks. Would have preferred more paths on top of the flood defences to improve views. Well organised visitor facilities and the hides were especially nice as shelter from the...More

The Marshes are easy to find, well sign posted down narrow lanes. There is a large , free car park and toilets. There are several benches throughout the area but there are no cafes nor pubs that we could find. There is no admission charge....More
