Lovely quiet place to walk and bird watch. Even saw a deer on one of the paths. A lovely place to escape to for some peace and quie. Dont forget the mossy cream though - they bite like demons

A lovely peaceful spot surrounded by wildlife, spotted lots of different dragonfly including a Norfolk Hawker and butterfly. Sitting in one of the hides with binoculars we got to see a magnificent Kingfisher and watch it fish!

Well-maintained walkways and hides make for a very enjoyable visit, with lots of wildlife to see. All well signposted, and a map is provided, though it might pay to take water and a picnic, especially if you plan to use the Tower Hide, which is...More

We visited Strumpshaw in May 2018 hoping to see Swallowtail butterflies. This nature reserve is well staffed with many volunteers present on site in various roles - all helpful to visitors. Footpaths are well maintained, and efforts are clearly made here to encourage children to...More
