We are closed for general visits from September to March

Thanks to everyone who visited us during the summer months. We hope you enjoyed the tranquility of the Reserve. We look forward to welcoming you to Withymead again next year for our series of spring and summer open afternoons and for the return of exclusive bookable visits starting in April.

Our Wardens and volunteers will be scheduling conservation tasks and habitat management over the winter months – but there are still ways in which you can visit Withymead.
