About this walk

A huge reservoir in the county of Rutland, with multiple entrances. The most common being at Whitwell, Sykes Lane, Edith Weston, Hambleton peninsula or BarnsDale. Walk along proper paths, flat and hills. They have special a dog park and wooded walk which is off lead, otherwise on leads. Beware of bikes in summer and in the busy parts. But this place is so big you can get away to quiet parts. Lovely views, water, oats and nature to see. Your dog will enjoy the smells and spaces. Rangers on site. Well Managed and clean.

Paid car parks at most entrances, some have cafes and toilets.
