Burrator Reservoir, Plymouth

4.7
#2 of 28 in Parks in Plymouth
Water Body Nature / Park
A unique spot in a landscape of moors and rocky hills, Burrator Reservoir provides easy walks, fishing, cycling, or more strenuous hikes into Dartmoor National Park. Enjoy an easy 5.6 km (3.5 mi) walk around the reservoir, which only takes about two hours. Ice cream trucks are common, so stop to fuel-up after your walk. To satisfy your craving for home cooking, fish for trout with a permit (bought at the garage in Yelverton). Parking is available in multiple locations. Burrator Reservoir is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Plymouth Edition.

Where to stay in Plymouth

Lodging in Plymouth range from stylish brand names and cozy B&Bs, to affordable self-catering apartments and private inns. To be near the city's main attractions, stay near the waterfront. Farther inland, you can explore a world of less expensive but just as comfortable boutique hotels and hostels, all within walking distance of the city's finest shops, restaurants, and bars. For an even less expensive alternative, consider staying in the quiet suburbs. Though a bit far from the city center, suburban hotels offer top-quality rooms at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
