Including the Abbey Walk, Campbells Croft covers 14 ha. It gives a variety of experiences. It has a few open grassy areas with one having a large patch of daffodils, with a sign asking visitors not to pick them.
Adjacent to one of the open grassy areas plantings of elms, poplar, oaks and silver birch give an English feel to that part of the reserve. It would be worth visiting in autumn to take in the autumn colours.
The majority of the reserve is heavily timbered and there is literally a maze of narrow walking tracks throughout giving the feeling of being in a forest. In a couple of sections, it feels like you are entering a tunnel with overhanging tree branches forming an umbrella of foliage.
