Additional Site Details


To get there take the Pyle exit off the M4, go left at the roundabout at the end of the off slip, then right at the next roundabout. Follow this road through for about 2 miles and then turn left when you reach the open area with dunes, where there is a sign to the reserve.


There is free access to the reserve, where there are two hides, although during the summer you are asked to avoid the sallows and reed beds. Wellies usually necessary especially in winter when it can be very wet.


Large car park by the reserve centre.
