Wonderful winter afternoon wild bird feeds

Lovely place to visit, staff are very helpful, and the winter afternoon wild bird feeds are amazing, so many birds and so close up.

We have visited Martin Mere over the years and seen it become, as time goes by, more and more of a commercial park. The time before last when we visited we were horrified to see that the famous...

We were part of a group of around 15 and spent the evening in the heated indoor hide with 2 staff who were so informative.

Wonderland for my three young great grandchildren. We couldn't see everything but we tried. The fantastic variety of birdsong quacking colours sizes of birds are breathtaking for all of us.

So much to see and do. A very well kept and interesting place to visit. Great play area for children, ducks and geese to feed, wild walk to explore, canoes to paddle, otters to view and much, much more. Even wheelchairs available if needed. Only slight critiscm is the cafe, bit pricy for what you get. All staff and volunteers... More

Booked my three children to see Father Christmas at his grotto, travelling by boat. Booked in at reception and gave my relevant reference booking number. It had already cost me £8 per child to see Santa, upon arrival I was asked for my attendance booking, to cut a long story short they wanted to charge me an extra £32 to... More
