“Great walking area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We frequently walk in snd around the Ladybower reservoir area. There is a great mix of easy and more challenging routes, and a range of roadside and car parking options (costs involved). Personal favourite route - from Fairholmes car park up onto Crook Hill, just to the west of Ladybower.

“Stunning view; tranquil”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Good landscape for walking, easy road access. Regardless of the weather (except when snow closes the Snake Road!), this is a great location for outdoors. Wait until the water levels drop, then look for the old buildings in the flooded valley. Mike
