“Circular lake walk.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Just walking around the lake is nice and has lovely surrounding views. Does get plenty of foot traffic and dog walkers. It can get really busy at certain times. The car parking situation is not great. There is a visitor centre which has parking. There are also pubs and a chippy on one side of the lake.

I personally like some of the walks in the surrounding areas, and up to the hills nearby. There are books and maps of these available and they provide a quieter and more diverse walk.

“An oasis of calm just outside Rochdale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Hollingworth Lake is an oasis of calm and a great place to take a walk with the kids to get away from the bustle of city life.

“A great walk and some stunning views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

A very good place to visit with a variety of walks; you can go right round the lake; dog friendly and with several places to stop for refreshments.The only fee is for parking.
