  • Beautiful lake, well signed and easy to get to. Parking is free for disabled and £3 for 4 hrs. I wouldn't say it's wheelchair friendly though! More walking stick friendly. There is construction going on to the far side at the moment so walking is limited in that section. If your paddle boarding or boating there's lessons and equipment hire available. It was very busy when we arrived, around midday, so we went out the entrance turned left and walked along until we came to the first lay by, if you go over the lay by you'll see steps descending to where you can walk next to the lake or even pitch up in a quiet little bay there which we saw a couple of families doing. There is a sign up warning about green algae on the water here! We had our dogs with us but kept them away from the water and had fresh bottles of water and a travel bowl for them. The walk takes you though a wooded area up onto a walkway that leads to steps ascending to another lay by, we chose to walk back on the wide path as it was a hot day and I didn't want the dogs out overheating, but on another occasion we would like to carry on the walk. I think it took us around 1 and a half hrs to do the walk. When we got back to the car park many people had left so we found a shaded spot for the dogs and had a picnic while enjoying the picturesque setting.
  • View is nice, lovely place, specially when you on the way. But about lake, specially swimming is not good, you should have special shoes, otherwise its to painful for walking barefoot, evening time have lot of small flys and they bite you. My all face are red and scrunching. But anyway is wild nature. For bbq is nice place, you can enjoying anyway. But im not sure if im going in there again.
