Bird hide at Hicks Lodge

The largely flat circular family forest trail takes you through our newly-planted woodland trees and around the lake where you will find a secluded haven for wildlife enthusiasts.

Our bird hide sits on the water edge and offers fantastic views across the lake of water birds, the sand martin wall and shingle island.
