It's the sort of place you will probably not read much about in a tourist guide, but if you're staying nearby (like we did in Ramsgate) I absolutlely recommand to do the circular walk through this wonderful nature reserve. The site is beautiful, even in winter! The landscape, the small lakes, the Great Stour river, the birds, the calm: all... 更多
Very nice place to take a country walk ,we have been in summer and winter and on both occasions have enjoyed our visit. Then back to the Red Lion for a beer , as must.
I had not been here for nearly 20 years, however I was not disappointed still a wealth of bird life to see, none of which was too taxing to identify. We only did part of the walk up to the Tower Hide where we spent around an hour watching the diverse bird life out on the lake. Spoke with a... 更多
Very close to Canterbury but seems to be in the middle of nowhere, Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve is well worth a visit. Free car park and loos at Stodmarsh just a few hundred yards from a great pub the Red Lion. Walking is flat and easy. Well way marked and a number of brisk hides to use. Even if you... 更多

There's so much to see, amazing electric blue dragonflies, and hear. Listen to the birds hiding the trees. Have a go at identifying... 更多

Lots of Cettis Warblers to be heard ( and sometimes seen ) We didn't see a Bittern, but heard the ' boom ' in the distance. A great... 更多
What s beautiful scenic place to go. We parked opposite in the Grive Ferry car park and went for a walk. It's advised you take wellies especially if walking the river bank route. Some beautiful scenes and quite a bit to walk. Perfect for bird watching and just lovely to catch some fresh air.
