A special place
Visit Wheatfen and discover a magical reserve with open fens, swaying reeds and wild woodlands just waiting for you to explore.
Discovering Wheatfen is easy – there are a number of pathways, including a 2 mile circular route that leads you around the different habitats of the Reserve. There is a summer path only accessible from May to September which leads you to the River Yare.
We also recommend you bring your wellies if you want to explore Wheatfen! We do ask you to keep to designated paths, boardwalks and tracks but most of our paths are through marsh and woodland. Wildlife is the priority at Wheatfen and although we like dogs, they must be left at home as they are not permitted on the reserve.
There is also no access to Wheatfen by water and canoes are not allowed on the reserve. If you have any questions about access, please feel free to get in touch.
