Beautiful and lovely views, great for long walks and runs. Parking is free by the side of the road I'd you can find any, else you can use Severn Trent car park which costs £3.00 for the whole day. If you plan to walk around the whole reservoir then plan at least 3 to 4 hours for this.
Very serene and pretty place. We went visited during long weekend and parking was difficult to find. One of the top places in peak district.
