Burrator Reservoir, Plymouth

(4.7/5 based on 600 reviews on the web)
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.
