Of Bolton’s many navigable lakes, this is my favourite. Good footing, and great views- you would never know you were in Bolton. Plus there are 2 car parks to choose from

Always feels tranquil walking around here. Reminds me of Scotland with the tall Pine trees. You can go round Wayoh Reservoir too which is through a gate to the right of the Car Park. Would have given 5 stars but unfortunately no toilet facilities.

Lovely countryside setting, great for walking and sightseeing. Parking facilities are good and there is the bonus of a visit to the Strawberry Duck, which is a superb pub / restaurant.

One of my favourite walks. We went round Wayoh with a pram which was a bit ambitious but managed it with three of us. Next time I'll stick to Entwistle! Such a beautiful setting on a clear day and the air feels so clean and...More

There were a couple of people with pushchairs on the day I went to Entwislte. There was one particular spot that was a bit narrow but they had got through ok.
