Takes some finding and watch for the horses and sheep on the road. Reasonable parking and loo (which had been recently slept in and was untidy). A number of walks varying in length round the reservoir, all pleasant enough. Could do with some more benches...More

With amazing engineering, stunning scenery, wildlife, and a clearly marked walk, this reservoir is worth a visit, to sit and enjoy a picnic (benches provided) take a lovely gentle stroll or a vigorous yomp.

The walk around the reservoir is lovely to do, but you need to be a confident driver to negotiate some of the lanes you go down to get there

A beautiful walk with lots of choice for an amble or a more physical walk. You can just walk around the reservoir or go off into the hills, up to tors and along the Leats.

Pay and display car park. Money goes towards butterfly conservation. We did the Potters Walk which is an easy walk on paths. Lovely views of the reservoir. Very good for dog walking
