What a delightful place! Something to interest all ages. Lots of paths (with warnings of possibility of being muddy for some), not so big that you could get lost, but plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. Small shop and cafe.

Great little reserve with lots of water and interest for children. It is possible to feed the birds with proper duck food. We saw water rail, coal tits and nuthatch among other birds. Worth a half day visit

This is hidden woodland. It's a wheelchair friendly walk. There is a small shop and a coffee area self service machine. After you can look around around the garden centre. This is a nice place for children.

Set back from a busy road junction on the A51 , it's easy to speed through the corner without knowing what lies behind the trees. Well this is worth stopping for. A lovely oasis of nature which everyone can enjoy with space to walk in...More

The Wolseley Centre is a hidden gem and could easily by-passed without discovering a wealth of nature and habitat compacted in a relatively small. The visitor centre is well worth a visit with its shop, interpretation boards and refreshment facilities. However the wealth of the...More
