We stopped here for a walk in the fresh air whilst in the area. It was lovely to walk around the lake which is not too far to walk round at all. It's quite popular for fishing with a lot of swims around the lake....More

Our grandsons had a great time rowing around for an hour - good value for £20 - they voted it the best bit of their stay with us and we did several other trips out.
