Campfield Marsh Nature Reserve:


Approx 2 miles


Car park on site, postcode CA7 5AG.

Why we love this walk?

If you are looking for an easy, free and fun day out with the kids then this is a great place! This walk allows a safe space to enjoy the great outdoors, my children LOVED the bug hotel and discovery zone. We love anywhere that offers a playground for our children using natural surroundings, there are also plenty of great places to enjoy a picnic in the warmer month.

Campfield Marsh can be found 15 miles west of Carlisle, the main entrance is at North Plain Farm 1.5 miles west of Bowness on Solway on the unclassified coast road

For more details please head to the bottom of this page and view our Strava map.

The children had such a great time here as there is plenty for them to explore throughout the walk: a bug hotel, a discovery zone, a bird buffet and a troll peeping out under the bridge!

A lovely little morning of fresh air and fun and I would highly recommend to families with young children.

Directions: RSPB Campfield Marsh, Wigtown CA7 5AG. There is a small car park at the beginning of the walk and the routes are clearly signposted and marked throughout. We followed the blue route which was approximately 1.5 miles.
