It's such a lovely spot and a lot of fun for the children. You can walk for hours around the house, farm and woodland.  VIEW the POST

It was fascinating. The fun you can have with the National Trust too made it all the better. VIEW the POST

We thought we would make a trip to a different National Trust nature reserve today as we had a Constant family day, it was lovely. The sun was shining and the weather was absolutely beautiful. We didn't know what to expect from Wicken Fen, but we were greeted with a great walk and lots of things to explore along the way. VIEW the POST
