“A good walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A good 7 mile walk along stoned paths with great views. Try and park on the causeway at the northern end as this is free and the cafe at The Visitor centre is then about half way around.

“Peaceful escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Great place to escape to. You can wander by the reservoir, watch the birds & warm up with a hot chocolate. I love it. Kids love the play area too.

“Good birding, sad about the cyclists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Brixworth C.P.is wonderful for a winter's walk. We have seen fox, deer, rare ducks and a short eared owls. The only problem is the cyclists. They majority seem to think pedestrians should get out of their way, they don't smile or say hello. There are some parts for walkers only but is worrying when there are young chilren running aroud.

“Used to be okay”

Now that the shop has closed down, and even with the refurbished toilets its not as nice as it used to be.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Stopped by on the way back home from a 3 day getaway. There are a number of different length walks with interesting features along the way to make it this little bit more interesting - stories and things made from wood. We went all the way around the lake which is a 7.5 mile walk and enjoyed every minute of it! One of the best walks in the area!
