A peaceful and relaxing place. Plenty of walk and cycle options. There are paths and good acess for these, and they vary in distance from a short walk from the car park to a full round trip. Clean tidy and beautiful. Nice coffee shop as well.

A bit hard to find but worth the effort. We went in the early evening and enjoyed a walk around the lake in the evening sunshine.

Weather could have been better, so did not really enjoy the outing as much as we might have given better conditions. The cafe was very good, a warm welcome with several items to take away to remember the visit.

Having been a member of the Friends of South West Lakes Trust for three years now (a great way to support the wonderful conservation work going on at all the SW lakes), I take advantage of free parking with my £30 p.a. subscription. Tamar Lake is my local... I visit at least once a week for walking/cycling and birdwatching and... More

Although it is well signed, the roads approaching (paricularly from the Devon side) are very narrow and in poor condition in places. However, the driveway to the upper lake is wide & smoooth, and leads to a well maintained car park overlooking the lake. There is a charge for the car park, but it's not unreasonable, particularly as the money... More

The walk around the top lake was great. We ignored the request to put the dog on a lead as did just about everybody else who were walking dogs. Car park charges are high.. Better to park down by the entrance as it's free. The walk along the canal via the lower lake is worth it if you want to... More

The café itself looked nice upon approach and did have a good stock of food/drinks however when I asked for my tea to be serviced in a teacup as opposed to a coffee cup I was told that wasn't what they did! Strange!
