Enjoy a good walk around the lake and then try out the menu in the visitor centre. Plenty to see and do on a sunny day; not so good if it's rainy !

An superb hidden gem for all the family in the city of Stoke-on-Trent but eminently accessible. Plenty of walks, loads of wildlife and a cafe with stunning views of the lake. Would certainly recommend.

Although it was raining we had to take our furry friend Pasha for a walk. The lake was literally next to our mooring for the night so we joined the path around the lake. Paved and well kept, three wheelchair users abreast could have a...More
