One of the country’s most accessible reserves, Sculthorpe is internationally recognised for its wildlife. The reserve is located in the beautiful Wensum Valley in Norfolk, and is a marvellous, peaceful place with a huge variety of wildlife in a rich and unusual mosaic of woodland, fen and reedbed habitats.

Boardwalks make access easy for everyone, and lead you through the reserve, visiting all the best areas. Bird feeders and nest boxes are sited along the way, adding further interest and there are viewing platforms, places to sit and relax along the way.

A series of hides for watching wildlife are located throughout the reserve and include the elevated, tree-top Volunteer Hide and Aerial Walkway. All hides are fully accessible by wheelchair. Sculthorpe Moor can proudly boast that we are one of the most disabled-friendly and accessible nature reserves in the whole country.

The reserve is rich, full of wildlife and varied but, at only 18-hectares (45 acres), is easy to explore and it offers everyone a real opportunity to get involved with the natural environment. Small but perfectly formed, a real gem of a reserve, and it’s a great place to come for a stroll.

The reserve is currently open Summer (April - October) between 8.00am and 5.00pm and Winter (November - March) between 8.00am - 4.00pm, 7 days a week. Please note last visitors are admitted up to 1 hour prior to closing. We are sorry but we do not allow dogs on the reserve (except assistance or guide dogs).
