Excellent space to wind down and take in some nature. One can easily get lost in time in this beautiful spot.

A small perfectly formed nature reserve. Very peaceful. Map at entrance behind pub, or online. Nice and relaxing for a stroll. Cafes in Twyford centre for a coffee before or after!

Tip - wear mud friendly shoes in winter/ or after rainy days as even on a dry day, 3/4 width of the paths were very muddy.
I saw a brave couple with a pram- but unless dry, wouldn't attempt that myself.

Tip to whoever manages it - one of the small pond areas (just before you leave the walk, before the houses) has a lot of old looking rubbish (mainly bottles) in it which should be cleared.

It is a beautiful series of lakes and waterways BUT you cannot see the lakes or waterways properly. Disappointing!

The well worn path around the lakes do not give you a clear view of the lake. Even the Old River along side is not properly accessible.

the local authority need to clear tress and hedgerows at particular points to allow walkers to see the beautiful lakes. The best part of the walk is the path by the old mill down to the lake. this is well kept and you can see the fast flowing streams.

A nice afternoon walk, getting back to nature with some nice peace and quite, with very little chance of running into big groups of people

In my book this is something of a hidden gem.

I have been walking and jogging round these old gravel pits for many moons. As a keen ornithologist there is always plenty to see, including occasional sightings of kingfisher, water rail, gold crest and egret, as well as the more common ducks and waders etc.

Plenty of interest with the changing seasons. Just stunning in the snow. Can get pretty boggy after heavy rain.

This is a lovely place to walk around the lakes and you can actually make a longer walk by incorporating Dinton

We went for a lovely peaceful walk around the lake. We parked in the pay and display car park on the Main Street some 2 minutes walk.

To start you walk through some private land across the river Loddon.

The walk we went on lasted between 45mins to 1 hour.

Suitable for dogs, cyclists and all ages.

Parking in the Waggon and Horses Car Park, across the little bridge and you can take a nice stroll around the lake path - takes between 30 and 40 minutes if you take your time. Great for hot days due to the shade of the trees, they have been working on the pathways but be prepared for uneven ground and if it has rained - wellies are a must.
Unfortunately you do get selfish irresponsible dog owners who leave their poop but just keep an eye open.
It really is a nice little amble and if you wanted to take a picnic there are grass verges at spots around the lake where you could just spend a few minutes chilling!

Myself and a friend visited with our toddlers on a dry and changeable day. It's not easily accessible for buggies, my friend could not get hers round and I struggled with my 3 wheeled off road buggy.

It was quite overgrown, muddy in places and I got bitten, a lot!

I'm is very quiet (apart from being right by the main train line to London) and beautiful but is not suitable for an easily family walk or a walk with small children.

It is used a lot by dog walkers and unfortunately a lot of people do not pick up the poo their dogs leave behind.

It is not somewhere we would take the boys to again.
