About this walk

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.

    You can't walk dogs around the reservoir itself. But a lovely green area too walk around near to the playpark

    Walking 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

    It'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 🐶
