We went after reading this place was wheelchair accessible, what they don't tell you is they have a 2.1mtr hight restriction in place. We turned up expecting a nice afternoon out only to find we couldn't get in as we have a motability WAV vehicle a Mercedes sprinter. Which wouldn't go under. What's the point of saying its wheelchair accessible when you can't even get into the car park. Now waiting for a response to the email I've sent them.

A gorgeous like with good paths for walking and cycling. Beautiful birds , trees and lake.
Benches for sitting and not far from a main road. Parking is free and dog walkers love the area. There is a picnic area.

We visited the lakes whilst staying in the area. Some really nice walks and not too far from Torworth.

The goods:
Lovely walk round the lake, flat walking & mainly proper paths
Easy walking with a pushchair (even in the pouring rain!)
Free parking
Lots of water birds to see, including swans
Information boards about the Ordnance factory that the nature reserve was built on
The not so goods:
No facilities so you need to be prepared
I recommend this walk for dog walkers, family & pushchair users. It would be a bit trickier for wheelchair users however as the track becomes quite narrow in places. It takes about 40 minutes to walk round (with no stops)

A very pleasant lake and surrounds with plenty of space to stretch your legs, It isn't to far to walk around the lake and should be achievable by nearly everybody. Keep a look out where the Canada geese are because when I was there a pike was laying in wait for them to enter the water.

First visit to Daneshill lakes and def won’t be the last, what a beautiful nature reserve, had a lovely peaceful walk with the dogs, saw plenty of wildlife especially the electric blue damsel flies going about their business. Had a picnic half way round, and watched the trains go by, spotted the old Edinburgh 250 miles sign facing the railway track,how lovely. 😊

Have visited here many times, a nice flat walk for anyone who struggles uphill, plenty of birdlife about &quite secluded at times, however it is spoilt by the constant passing of trains, the railway crossing nearby is always a hold up, to & from the lakes....a bit annoying.
