Spent a couple of hours walking round the reserve, absolute bliss. A perfect escape from the crazy covid-19 world we are living in at the present. What is essential though are wellies, difficult without them at Wheatfen this time of year. Spent some time in the woods looking for fungi then walked around the rest of the reserve. If you love nature this is a place to visit.

Wheatfen is a hidden gem SE of Norwich. It is not widely advertised nor signposted - we found it on marked walk leaflets. It is sited off a narrow and loose-surfaced country lane - well off the beaten track. Lovely Broadland setting with views of water, reeds, flowers, trees, marshland, river. We met the "local royalty" too - the "youngest Ellis" introduced herself and gave a short conversation on the reserve. We only had time to see half of the reserve - it is worth a 2-3 hour visit. Paths are well marked out but can be very wet in places - bring your wellies! Some paths lead to the riverside with views of passing boats.

Was great to finally visit a place I heard so much about from Ted Ellis on tv and at school when I was young. I should have gone years ago. A variety of paths means you can pick a distance to suit your ability. Much is boardwalk and raised paths above marsh and so much wildlife and flora and fauna. I went when there was a spring high tide and one or two places the boardwalk had a couple of inches of water so maybe worth checking tides before you go. Was still.possible to get round dry on shorter paths. This is a lasting tribute to the Ellis family and is unspoilt and well managed. Will be back again soon.

Nightmare to find,no signs anywhere on route and sat navs took us to wrong place. Once in car park still no signs to start and walked the wrong way through the woods. Once on reserve no signs on walkway easily get a bit confused on direction . Lovely setting though not sure with the hassle to find it.

Not visited here for many years & can't imagine why I've left it so long. It is such a beautiful, unspoilt place, so rare nowadays. There are plenty of different walks offering views across Wheatfen broad & through the woods. The walks are well marked & many offering circular options. Some have board walks so ok for people with limited mobility. We visited after a lengthy wet spell & was rather boggy under foot but a pair of wellies meant most paths could still be used. A real hidden gem that I hope remains the way it is for many years to come.
