“Lovely lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled on Hollingworth lake and decided to take the dog for a walk there. You can pretty much walk round the entire lake and at certain parts the dog could go for a little swim. Plenty of pubs & ice cream vans about. Makes for a lovely afternoon out.

“Nice afternoon out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Nice walk around Hollingworth Lake. Good wide paths suitable for pushchairs and disabled access. Plenty of benches to have a few minutes taking in the view. Coffee/ice cream shop located half way around the lake. Recommend Mr Thomas's for Fish & Chips.

Wonderful lake to walk around. Great fish and chip restaurant/takeaway. Amusement arcade. Couple of pubs, cafes, a restaurant and some shops. Car parking is a problem on nice days. Toilets in the main car park

“A nice long walk along the lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Reservoir built for the near by Rochdale canal has gone through many stages and now serves as a picnic location for families. Plenty of Pubs n restaurants. Near by fish n chips is a award winning. Visitor centre with cafe n relevant informations. Lake offers sports facility and long walk along which is relaxing n fun. Lot of families seen enjoying.

Beer festival is held ever year.

Don't miss the local Royd ice cream sold by numerous vans.

“Nice to walk round sometimes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

When I say it's nice to walk round sometimes, it's best to go early Sunday morning before all the people arrive. We take our grand-daughter to feed the ducks and then have an ice cream outside the cafe.
