Getting around

Filsham Reedbed is located between Bexhill and Hastings. Access is via the footpath which runs alongside the Combe Haven river, from the Bulverhythe recreation ground just off the A259 in St. Leonards. After one kilometre there is a stepped footbridge over the river. You can also access the site from Reedswood Road (grid reference: TQ780096).

Use Traveline to plan your journey to this nature reserve.

Please take care on the narrow riverside path connecting the car park to the reedbed, as it is uneven. On the reserve, a raised boardwalk leading to a viewing platform takes you into the centre of this reserve. Please keep to the paths. Paths are uneven and muddy in the winter, and can sometimes flood.
