Stopped by here on a trip around the SW recently, and even though it was a soggy day it was still a pleasure. 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.

Now I have retired from clambering about in boats[too old],both my wife and... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful as we just just a little bit short to pay the parking fee and they let us pay for it at the register, so while we was going to do that we... More
