Amazing nature reserve. The other half and I walked for around 4 hours easily. Such a lovely peaceful place to go clear your head and enjoy the beauty of nature. You can't hear traffic and only occasionally can you hear passing trains. There are plenty...More
Amazing natural area so close to home. Miles of trails to walk along and multiple spots to stop and view a variety of birds. Vast lakes undisturbed by humans which is great to see. Will definitely be returning soon.
After some difficult we found this near where we were staying. Some lovely walking with birdwatching and seeing wildlife. Well worth looking up. Ways in in Stidmarsh, near the pub. Also by the Grove Ferry pub at the other end of the reserve. Good bird...More
An enjoyable excursion from Canterbury, and easy to access. Clearly very popular with bird watchers, but it's an enjoyable walk for everyone, and very peaceful

In fact there are two car parks you can use. The one in Stodmarsh itself, which is the nearest one to the lakes. But you can also use the car park at the Grove Fery Inn, near the Grove Ferry Picnic site at Upstreet... More
In fact there are two car parks you can use. The one in Stodmarsh itself, which is the nearest one to the lakes. But you can also use the car park at the Grove Fery Inn, near the Grove Ferry Picnic site at Upstreet. It's handy for visiting the nature reserve just across across the road, but you will have to take a little walk to get to the lakes. Moreover, this car park is paying even if it's only a small amount for a whole day.
Hope this is of help.
