Draycote Water is a 650 acre reservoir set high in the rolling Warwickshire countryside that has a tarmac road perfect for walking, running or cycling. There is also a children’s play area, a restaurant, ice cream kiosk, sailing club and fishery. There is a flat five mile tarmac pavement around the reservoir which is ideal for a leisurely stroll. The 24 acre country park provides plenty of space to play games and enjoy the outdoors. The Hensborough hill top provides spectacular views and is a great place for a picnic. Your furry friend can’t be walked around the reservoir we’re afraid, but the 24 acre Country Park allows for a short dog walk.

3 years agoYou can't walk dogs around the reservoir itself. But a lovely green area too walk around near to the playpark
3 years agoWalking in general is fine but parking can be hard if you don’t get there early and dogs cant really go around much - which is a shame as he reservoir walk would be lovely with them
3 years agoCant take dog around the lake
a month agoIt's a shame dogs aren't allowed around lake it's a lovely walk . I wonder who payed for the reservoir so who makes the Link → the tax payer might have had something to do with it and most of them had a dog 🐶
