We stopped here on route to our holiday cottage and would have liked to have spent longer. Good café, and nice spot for a picnic. There are walks available but we did not have time to do them.

We walk our dog around the reservoir fairly regularly. Nice cafe for refreshment afterwards. The only qualm is the parking which is a set fee for 24 hours or something. Would be better if you could pay for just an hour at a time.

Good walk in a beautiful area. Spoiled by dog owners not cleaning up after their dogs. Lovely birds. But not to busy.

Easy to find country park. Some great walking routes to be sampled packed with interest. Lots for younger children too.
