Strawberries & Steam 2012

Approximately 1 km walk to the lake and back

A delightful walk with fauna and flora on the way to the lake itself nestled within a wetland reserve and fringed with rushes. It is a natural habitat for marsh marigolds, ragged robin and cuckoo flowers. It’s also home to a family of swans that you can observe from the bird hide, and if you are lucky, you may also catch a glimpse of herons, mallard ducks, teals, coots, moorhens and deer.

Tickets cost £1 and include entrance to the Dairy Parlour and Small Animal Enclosure.

All the money raised goes towards helping to maintain this Wetland Reserve and the Small Animals Enclosure
