Overview
More
The historic Linacre Reservoirs provide the perfect setting for a quiet, relaxing day out. A network of trails and footpaths crisscross the valley. Visitors can explore ancient beech and oak woodlands or follow the course of the Holme Brook as it cascades down the valley. The peaceful setting means the site abounds with wildlife. Nuthatches, flycatchers and woodpeckers can be seen and heard as they flit among the canopy and kingfishers and mandarin ducks can be spotted around the waters edge. The site is accessible all year round. Car parking There are three small car parks along the main entrance road to the Linacre Reservoirs. Car parking at Linacre costs £1.00 for up to two hours and £2.50 for the day. An annual parking permit for up to two cars costs £25.00.

Sat nav took us to a private drive but when we eventually found it all good! 3 reservoirs not too big to walk round. Surrounds by woodland trails so great to take your dogs. Well maintained footpaths. No signs though!

Thanks for your review and persevering to Linacre Reservoir despite your sat navs best intentions- it might not have been quite the same day out had you stayed at the private drive for the afternoon!

Most of the wood carvings are on the right hand side of the second reservoir but they are scattered around the circuit. There is a visitors center and map at the first (lower) reservoir enjoy

No, not on the site itself, but a couple of local pubs - The Gate and The Peacock - are close by.
