The room is for hire all year round and costs  £30.00 for a half days hire and £60.00 for a full day.
There is plenty of hard surface parking right outside and the Reserve is well sign posted from the B2000. Making it an ideal location for events, meetings or family gatherings.

Dawn and dusk viewing on the lakes is a very unique and special time for wildlife. We open early and close late, thus offering a great opportunity to view the wildlife at either end of the day.
