“Fantastic walk with scenic views ”

Ladybower Reservoir
Ranked #2 of 6 things to do in Bamford
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Really great walk with spectacular views around the reservoir. The path is fairly flat too for those with prams/pushchairs and children. After just over 2 hours of walking we decided to turn back around, some of the hikers there told us it would take much longer to complete it! The kids were getting tired and there were no nearby toilets! I just wish there were more benches to sit and take in the views and also to sit and eat something because although it was a clear sunny day, it had rained the night before so it was quite wet and muddy. All in all a beautiful place to visit.

A nice short MTB ride along a good quality track from Bamford but ideal to continue on for more challenging stuff.

This is a beautiful part of Derbyshire, great for walking, watching the wildlife and enjoying the hills around. Don't forget to go up to the dam.

Visited Ladybower Reservoir and sink holes. An amazing spectacle to see and wonderful scenery. After seeing this, I recommend a drive to Derwent Reservoir and Dam, stopping at Fairholmes Visitor Centre for more amazing views and wonderful scenery. At the time we visited, we had not long had snow, which gave it an extra special feeling. Great location, super facilities if you want a 'stop off' place to have a cup of tea or something to eat. Highly recommend a visit to this whole area. See the power of nature and how beautiful it can be.

If you are around, don't hesitate to go there. Very calm place where you can just chill out, walk and admire the nature
