Chew Valley Lake is very nice, with an abundance of bird life in various places around the lake. Watching the swans, geese and ducks is fascinating. Dogs are welcome on leads, as the wildlife has priority. You can take a pleasant stroll on the lake...More

Had a tip to go to the dam. Got views of some good birds. Would have been lovely if not raining. Great in spring I would think.

We had a stroll around the lake on a Tuesday afternoon and enjoyed it. However, as per previous comments, you don't get many lake views as the paths are set back and high growth prevents it.
