Walks - families

There are lots of exciting things to see throughout the year at Stour Valley Nature Reserve.

Self-guided walks

We recommend starting your walk at Kingfisher Barn Visitor Centre. Ask the team what local wildlife to look out for, or even pick up one of our seasonal trails to follow.

Circular walks

Choose from one of three walks, of different lengths, shown in our leaflet.

Mindful meander

Download our mindfulness leaflet (kindly sponsored by the Stour Valley Supporters), to encourage a beautiful connection with nature.
