Although we enjoy a walk on the boardwalk around the fen, we wish that the employees in the cafe were more welcoming. The food is what you would expect from a National Trust property, though a little limited.

We often visit for an afternoon walk with our dog. The atmosphere is tranquil and there is lots of wildlife to see. Although lots of people visit it there is still plenty of space.
