  • Great place for a walk, not too far from Belsay. Little cafe serves hot drink and cakes. Lucky to have caught a few good sunsets here too.
  • Beautiful lake. A nice, gentle walk around on a well maintained path
  • I used to be a Volunteer Ranger here, a long time ago, but it has changed for the better, cafe open on weekends and school holidays. There used to be a School's event "Operation Squirrel" but haven't heard anything about it for a few years now. Home of many Red Squirrels,plenty of waterfowl and things to do, great place to let the kids run off some energy and the dogs too.
  • Lovely country park with short walks around the lake on metalised paths and boardwalks. Good selection of wildlife. Small cafe serving tea coffee and homemade cake. Open grass area for picnics in the summer.
  • The paths look newly laid hardcore easy to walk on. Short walk only 3/4 mile all the way round. Very pleasant in the winter sunshine.
