Pensthorpe Nature Reserve is a wonderful site near the North Norfolk coast. I visited in order to see the Millennium Garden designed by Piet Oudolf, but there are other gardens, walks, birds, and activities for children. And the scones and homemade cakes are very good too! Do try to visit this wonderful, magical place.
The Wildflower Meadow was beautiful – flowers and grass with a winding path cut through the meadow.
The River Wensum winds through the Reserve and there is a lot of information about managing the river.
Lakes, birds, and hides where you can quietly sit and enjoy the birds and scenery.
The waterlily lakes at Pensthorpe.
Birds are everywhere, including red breasted geese and mallards, and there were lots of butterflies.
And then a final visit to Piet Oudolf’s garden.
