Overflowing

Fantastic to walk around, and if it is overflowing its a fantastic sight to see, what history too.! If the sun shines for you there's no better place to be!

East drive to the visitor centre, good facilities and a lovely easy walk all around the reservoir (about 6 miles).

Easy and clear paths for a gentle stroll along the reservoir, lucky to see the 'plug holes' in action as well.

We took our dog for a walk around Ladybower and her nose did not stop, nor did her tail. The views were fantastic, which was helped by the good weather and we all enjoyed the hike through the woods above the resevoir. Definitely worth a visit :)

Visited because of the connection with the Dambuster and I wasn't disappointed. It is lovely and has a good walk.

We had a lovely walk around the reservoirs. Fantastic views and very interesting to see where the Dam Busters practiced for their raids. Really clean area and pleasing to see the Peak Rangers driving around and stopping to pick up litter. This is paid for from the car-park fees I believe. Good parking - £2.50 all day. Good for dogs...

Located just up the road is the ladybower Inn which has great choice of food and accommodation close to the reservoir. Parking on the roadside is free but get... More

I went here for a family walk seeming as it was my birthday. There are loads of walks around here whether you have a dog or not. There's also cycle paths, bridle ways, lakes for the dogs to go in and picnic benches. There is a cafe which sells beverages. There's toilets and plenty of car-parks. You do have to... More
