We have visited Hollingsworth lake on many occasions. We love to walk around it in the sunshine or any weather except rain to be honest! Can get busy at weekends/school holidays.

Really nice to walk around the lake takes around 1 hour and a enjoyable pace. Ice cream shops and a swim in the lake is recommended

Lived only 10 mins away all my life and what a gem of a place. Nice and flat to walk round so ideal for prams and wheelchairs. Couple of pubs with grub. Even a campsite if you choose to stay longer. Great wildlife. Cold cold water but sections to paddle

We always go to Hollingworth Lake for a nice walk, this time I went with my baby sister, who's in a pram, my self ( I was on my bike ) and my dad and step mum. It is an amazing, scenic walk with lovely cafes and restaurants dotted around the area. The route is lovely and scenic with many... More

A perfect way to start the day with a stroll around the lake. Look in at the visitors centre for refreshments then on to the nature trail. Perfect
