Thanks for you lovely review :) Linacre Reservoir is on the edge of the Peak District. Which has 3 reservoirs, so you can choose to walk one or all 3. They are surrounded by fields and bluebell woods, Especially beautifully in the spring.

Sorry, I don’t know the answer to your question but sure if you contacted the authority they would let you know. I don’t have a dog so not been an issue for me. Hope you manage to find out.

Hello I have seen a picnic area and tables I don't know if you would be able to barbeque there. Maybe a quick walk there would clarify it there is a visitors centre near the picnic area. Have fun
