  • Historical site which has been restored and renovated with assistance from Plymouth University. The well maintained gardens are quiet and peaceful. Restaurant beside the Reservoir is operated by the University. Disabled access is not so good.
  • Genuinely peaceful and beautiful, if small, piece of local history in the middle of the town centre.
  • I love standing here watching the carp, there's some huge ones - the cafes pretty good as well.
  • Calm, quiet green space on North Hill. The fountains in the reservoir are lovely in the summer and the cafe does BBQs on Thursdays.
  • Friendly town. Can spend a relaxing afternoon here.
