“Surprise Sailing in the middle of England”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Amazing watching the dinghies sailing on Carsington reservoir with the Peak District hills making up the surrounding scenery.
Easy to access well sign posted Visitors Centre which has pay & park, plus usual facilities. Also there is trout fly fishing available.

“Great walk”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Did the 8 mile walk/cycle around the lake which is gently undulating. Nice cafe at the visitors centre (although the coffee comes out of a machine!). We were there at a weekend and there was plenty of outside entertainment going on.
