Slightly hidden from the main road, although sign posted, the reserve is worth keeping an eye out for! A completely free visit and actually very interesting. Start off your visit in the “museum” and then continue your visit around the lake.. home to many species...More

This is a great place hidden just off of Bradbourne Vale Road in Sevenoaks, and it's all free (parking for about 30 cars and access to the reserve itself). There are a few lakes here that can be reached by footpaths which are well signposted,...More

Hi there. Only guide dogs are allowed on the reserve. This is due to it's protected status for breeding wetland birds. Thank you for asking. :-)
