It's always a perfect day for a walk at Wicken Fen

Updated: Mar 21


Wicken Fen is the National Trust's oldest nature reserve and England's most famous Fen and the best part about it is that is it only a two minute drive from Gravel Farm.


It's an amazing place in all weather and has something for everyone.


This weekend we headed down there on a gloomy Sunday for a walk before heading back to Gravel Farm for a delicious home made Sunday roast.


There's plenty of trails to follow and it's a great place to take the kids or the dog while staying with us.



They have den building for children, lots of wildlife to see from the hideouts, a newly refurbished cafe and visitor centre, so you wont be short of things to see or do on your trip to the Wicken Fen.


With lots of fun facts along the routes, such as this one about how they keep the Fen wet, you will come away with lots of new knowledge.




To find out whats happening when you come and stay with us, here is a link to the website: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/wicken-fen-nature-reserve


So make sure you head down to Wicken Fen whilst staying with us, as its such a beautiful place, even on a gloomy Sunday. (All pictures in this blog were taken on 2/2/20, so just imagine how beautiful it is in the summer)
