Walking the WCP this is an ideal place to leave the car. The loos are great and so is the cafe. If you are a RSPB member you park free too. Friendly helpful people. Terrific day out for twitchers.

Lovely safe place to walk dogs and nice relaxing coffee shop Good views of the river. If you want to walk through the middle of the Wetlands you can’t take dogs but there is a long walk around the border you can still see wildlife.

Fantastic day out. Hidden away and great place. Cafe bit steep on price hence 4 star. But place is awsum.

This is a great place to go for a good walk. The staff at the visitor centre are friendly, helpful and informative. Could do with a dog waste bin, as didn't like having to carry it home! Other than that it was worth the visit.

A pleasant walk around wetlands area near Newport. As this is a RSPB site I suppose it is more interesting if you like bird watching which I don't! Nice morning walk anyway. Need some bins though as bought an icecream and did not see a...More

We live very close by the reserve, this was our first visit and we won't be going back. You enter the car park only to find out after you've entered ,that although the reserve is free to get in, you have to pay £3 to...More

Spent a few hours wandering the paths around the Reserve. Definitely recommend. 3 quid for car park, which seems annoying but the reserve seems pretty well maintained, so fair enough. Remember change for parking machine, but paying by card in the centre was easy enough....More

We love to visit the wetlands often, sometimes over the weekend so we can go for long walks or just explore, and sometimes after school for a quick visit and picnic. My children like to look for wildlife and love to spot different birds and...More

Safe yes but quite a long ride! I would guess about 5 miles. You could get a bus from the bus station which is about a 5 min walk from the train station!
