“A nice relaxing Sunday walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Enjoyed a nice Sunday morning walk around the lake, the first time we have done the full circuit. It made for a pleasant walk on a cold and sunny morning. Stopping at the visitors centre and the lakeside cafe.

“The country of my birth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Hollingworth lake is beautiful in the summer and in Littleborough lovely views of the moors. The little town/village has not changed much since I was a child and I love to go home to my birthplace to visit family each year.

“My Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My favourite lake. A 2 mile walk round the lake usually takes about 50 minutes. A few pubs and cafes at the start and even a little cafe half way round for a well earned ice cream. If you don't want to walk round there are plenty of benches too sit on and simply enjoy the view.

“Great walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Been here in the last week, cheap car parking at the visitors center. Many walks can be done from here, long or short, or just sit by the lake and chill out, well worth a days walking

“Nice place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Parking has been improved in the area and it is really nice to walk around the lake, the pathways are in good condition and it does get really busy on sunny days. But, a walk around on a crisp winters day is also an experience to be enjoyed. If you do not know Hollingworth Lake you should give it a go, you would not believe that you are so close to a Lancashire Cotton Mill town - the views are superb. There are some nice places to stop off for a drink and a bite to eat, and just a 10 minute walk into Littleborough will take you to some nice bars and more restaurants .
