We arrived very late afternoon and although it was dribbling with a bit of rain we headed out anyway and had a lovely ride around the water. There were a few flies around but generally very pleasant.

Good clean facilities, which you pay for by the car parking charge. No real further charges, which if you have a family is monist welcome. Free visitors centre and activities.

Our family had a great time at Carsington Waters with our bikes. It has good gravel paths and the area is teeming with wildlife. It is great for the children instead of sitting playing games indoors.
