Lovely place to walk

Not far from Todwick. Cafe only open occasionally. Very pleasant flat walk around a reservoir and over a bridge. Seems to appeal to all ages.

great for dog walking - you can park for free down the side roads. Quiet with picnic benches - great for dogs that like to swim. Clean and lots of dog poo bins. Just lovely.

We did one of the Rotherham doorstep walks which started at Ulley Reservoir and went across to the village of Ulley. Good parking and well maintained paths by the reservoir, pleasant views. Good walk into Ulley. Cafe wasn't open when we went, a few people fishing

I am fortunate to live close to Ulley Country Park, as it's always worth a visit. There's a car park, which has been free for some months, as the ticket machine has been missing/ out of action, & handy toilets. Although there's not an abundance of wildlife, there' s an interesting selection of wildfowl, & we've seen swans, ducks, coots... More

I've been here once last year. It was worth visiting as I saw a Heron that day sat on a boat. It is only a short walk. I thought I would have been able to walk a full circle around the lake but you can only walk on one side. The dogs were off the lead and then quite suddenly... More
