RSPB Old Moor has been awarded the TripAdvisor 'certificate of excellence' for being ranked the number one attraction in Barnsley on its website.

The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is only given to businesses that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on popular website.

Only the top-performing ten per cent of businesses listed on the website receive the award.

Matthew Capper, site manager at Old Moor, said it's a great achievement for the reserve.

"We only joined TripAdvisor 14 months ago and have had some fantastic comments from visitors which has helped us to be ranked as the number one attraction in Barnsley on the website," he said.

"We work really hard to provide a great visitor experience and we're pleased to see that our visitors agree that we do."

More than 95,000 people visit the 250-acre nature reserve each year which has recently upgraded its facilities for families to include a new playground, a discovery zone and refurbishment of the shop and cafe.
