Your Private Visit!
Withymead is delighted to be opening its doors to the public again following closure during the COVID-19 period. Make an exclusive access booking and immerse yourself in 13 acres of wetland and woodland habitats; enjoy observing an array of local flora and fauna undisturbed or simply relax and take in the tranquillity this greenspace has to offer. Considerable work has been completed at the site to allow nature to flourish and thrive and for you to be able to enjoy it first-hand. We are delighted that visitors can now book their own private slot(s) to visit Withymead nature reserve.
Feel free to bring a picnic with you to sit and enjoy at our waterfront deck or a flask of tea to sip whilst perched in one of our hides.
This booking is open to all: individuals, families, friends, clubs, organisations, educational groups and businesses or anyone who wishes to savour this local wildlife site.
There is no fixed charge for the visit on booking - but donations to the charitable trust on site to support the upkeep of this natural gem are greatly appreciated.
