Great fish and chips....a treat after a stroll round the lake. Boats, birds and a fair in the summer.

The lake has a path all the way around it with woods to explore by children and dogs! There is a good selection of shops pubs with good grub in the small village location which runs alongside the lake where water activities were in progress and the lake was shimmering in the winter sunlight.

Nice stroll round the lake to burn those calories off, also a couple of good places to stop for lunch on the way round.

There is something for nearly everyone here.
Most only see a small proportion of it but if you are prepared to use it as a base then you can walk for miles on guided paths and up onto the moors.
Walk round and it is about 2.25 miles with a cafe half way round.
Plenty of water sports for club members with both the rowing club and the sailing club having links to past Olympic medal winners.
Pleasure rowing also available and a full on water activity centre as well.
Locally loads of food outlets.
Also visit the Visitors centre for loads of info.
Badly needs more litter bins and parking can be an issue - the Taffic Wardens are completely merciless, you have been warned.
