I really wanted to review the cafe but couldn't find it on Trip Advisor! So... the lake is fab! Very picturesque with lovely walks, water sports, wildlife etc. But the Lakeside Cafe! Well! Brilliant! Friendly staff and great variety on the menu serving homemade local produce. Really reasonably priced. We had soup and paninis and cake. All delicious and the... More

Stopped here to take our dog for a walk. Signage says keep dogs on a lead and asks to clear up after your dogs. Saw many dogs off lead and a fair amount of dog "poo" not picked up! The signage showing foot paths was very faint and needed painting some sign posts had no information on them at all.... More

Evidently loads to do and see, lots of walks with useful distances added for the hardy walkers and the lightweights! Watersports available too. We used the restaraunt also and were impressed by the fare on offer. As... More

After enjoying a long run around the reservoir on the roads, we stopped at the visitor centre and had a lovely coffee, watching the red sunset! An amazing place for great views on a clear day.

Nice family afternoon with our bikes followed by great food in the cafe. Was slightly dissapointed that we couldn't ride around the lake, the cycle paths take you through wooded areas but it was still pleasant.
