The paths on the Discovery Trail are generally a mix of compacted stone, grass and boardwalk and are pushchair/wheelchair friendly. A recently laid loose stone path from the temporary entrance will make pushing tricky for the first 100m. 


The Plantation route is unsurfaced, with just a light covering of woodchip. We advise wearing covered shoes if attempting this route after a period of wet weather. The Plantation route also has 4 shallow and well-distanced steps up a hill - these should prove no problem for pushchairs, but may be tricky for wheelchairs. 


The Heron's Rest Cafe serves a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks and has both indoor and outdoor (courtyard) seating.


Picnics are not allowed on the reserve, but may be consumed in the picnic area beside the visitor centre.


No dogs or bikes allowed on the reserve.


Construction of the new Discovery Hub building was completed at the end of 2020 but will not open until the new garden project is complete - estimated to be end of summer 2021.
