Nice dog walk

Nice place to walk the dog. There are inns and restaurants to get a bite to eat or get a coffee or icecream

The top course is fun with a gnome hunt & arboretum. Great place for walking dogs. Lots of different trails. Top course not pushchair friendly

Stayed up the road in the St Pierre Best Western, walked down to the Country park and completed a full circuit, perfect for trying to (start) getting fitter

A local treasure for a walk, photography, wildlife, small car park which makes parking awkward. Decent footpaths for Prams, wheelchairs etc.

Walking, running or cycling there is lots of space here to stretch your legs. Just a steady walk round the lake or explore the aboretum and the woods or be adventurous on the cycle paths. Lots of places to eat and drink too, we particularly like the Fox and Hounds.

Pay and Display car park which is very small and cramped. No motorhome spaces. Paths accessible for scooters/buggies/wheelchairs and a few activities for children - all good. However, very noisy, busy road all along one end so you don't feel as though you are in the country. It was ok but wouldn't bother going again.

Car parking close, but a pay & display & can get very busy on nice days. lots of people dog walking, & young children riding bikes. So nice to stroll round a lovely lake, & work on going making good walk ways round. Paths made for children to follow certain signs which ever path they choose to use. Some trees... More

Really don't know what to say, truly love the place. Not a lot there, couple of pubs and the walk around the dam but we love it. Would be my retirement area this would.

Newmillerdam has always been a lovely place to walk round especially in summer. It's our first port of call to enjoy the outdoors when the sun is shining. Get chance to finish of with an ice cream or a swift beer at the Dam Inn
