Visited today for a picnic and dog walk. Easy to get to, parking available although we walked. Few picnic benches available but I imagine hard to come by in summer. Lovely view over the lake and then walk around it . You can take dogs...More

For a pleasant walk this is a good place to spend an hour. Yes, its in the countryside (just!), and is therefore generally quiet most of the time. I`ve yet to find a route all around the lake though but i`ve no doubt there must...More

Very peaceful and rural, these lakes are a nice place to visit for an afternoon walk or impromptu picnic. Also popular with the fishing community and an interesting place for kids to cycle safely in too.

Its nice to go with the family for a nice picnic outside if the weather is good! Don't swim there though as there is a nasty green bacteria in the lake and its forbidden!

Be much better if you could walk all the way around the lake, and if dogs were allowed off the lead, and hadn't got bitten by an insect. Nice sheltered spot for sitting down and eating. Easy to park

We live a few minutes away and we love coming here for a walk. There is always plenty of wildlife to spot from ducks on the lakes to all sorts of newts and birds. There are generally sheep grazing or sometimes cows roaming about. Come...More

Cafe and playparks needed but still lovely views and nice walk. Be Good if the bridge was fixed and additional seating around lake but still it's good
