All 3 reservoirs offer different experiences. Go around them all or pick one and watch the wildlife. May be muddy so boots are recommended and for a break don't miss bluebells for a lovely bacon roll and a cup of tea.

This is a fantastic area for photographers and twitchers alike. Early morning and dusk is especially good. Also good for family walks as there are three pubs in the area and a tea room.
