Visiting Boarstall Duck Decoy: What to expect during your visit
We look forward to welcoming you to Boarstall Duck Decoy. For visits either bring your membership cards with you or you can buy a day ticket - please note we only take cash. Carry on reading below for more information on visiting.
Boarstall Duck Decoy can be found 2 miles west of Brill, in the village of Boarstall. You’ll spot brown tourist signs directing you to the Duck Decoy, and when you are on the Brill Road, look out for the entrance to the Duck Decoy. It is a turning just off the road, and through a farm, keep following the National Trust signs through the farm and onto the track. At the end of the track, you’ll find our car park on your right hand side.
Perfect for a picnic
While we have no café or refreshment facilities at Boarstall Duck Decoy, it is the perfect place for a picnic. Just as you arrive you’ll find the perfect spot to lay down your picnic blanket, or you can make use of one of our picnic benches, made from wood local to Boarstall by our volunteer team. We ask that you follow the countryside code and take your litter home with you.
We welcome dogs at the decoy, so bring your four-legged friend along too. We have a dog bin in our car park, and a water bowl just by our welcome building. We ask that dogs are on leads at all times so everyone can enjoy their visit to the duck decoy.
Please note we have recently re-opened our toilet facilities. We don't have baby change facilities or accessible toilets, but you'll find a gents and ladies loo in the hall when you arrive.
Exploring the decoy
You’ll find a map of the decoy when you arrive with some information on about this beautiful woodland. The paths are woodchip, so we advise some good footwear as it may be muddy in patches.
