I keep my boat here so I get over quite a few times. People mention the car parking charges but during warm weekends the place is packed! It seems to be very popular for family picnics in the summer. There are toilets at all the car parks and a few cafes if you haven't brought a drink. We like to... More

Really enjoyed our walks around Rutland Water, it is so beautiful. As we went in March it wasn't too busy and the weather was very kind to us. Would certainly go again.

Rutland water is a huge reservoir and is mostly accessible all round. Lots of cyclists and dog walkers but it is so huge that they don't spoil the enjoyment of walkers. some really good paths and interesting sights. The chutch is our favourite.

Rutland Water is without doubt the finest reservoir in Rutland, irrespective of the many different ways in which this can be assessed: water holding capacity, number of peninsulas, percentage of reservoir in Rutland and so on. Visitors who are rightly charged a fortune to park there should shut up moaning and enjoy the benefits: lovely walks, cycling, sailing, the chance... More

Vast lake-sized reservoir, created in 1974 and now a major leisure attraction with extensive woodland walks around the edge. Also popular with cyclists and picnickers. Normanton Church, half submerged below the level of the water, is the most interesting attraction, but anywhere on the lake is well worth visiting.

Rutland waters is a stunningly beautiful place to visit. The waters are so vast and there is lots to do here if walking is not your thing. You can hire bicycles and there is a small bug zoo for kids and a play area as well as a well stocked cafe. Walking round the waters was breathtaking. Nature at its... More

I visited Rutland Water mainly to go for a run. It's the first time I've been here and the surroundings are beautiful and it's peaceful too. There are numerous cafe and restaurants and kids play parks too. This place is massive, in total it's approximately 26 miles to do one whole loop. Great place if your'e out for a stroll,... More

Whitewell for water sports, boating and cycle hire, empingham for kids with bug zoo, mini golf and a lovely play park for kids of different ages. My 4 year old loves the new climbing frame. plus onsite fair. Otherside you have nature walks and golf... More
