  • It was wet on the day we visited so we're unable to wander around the lakes, but certainly a place we will re visit when next in the area. Tea room really good, lovely food and hot drinks  more »

  • Lovely place to walk with the family or pets on a nice sunny day. The cafe is reasonably priced and the ladies do a good job.
  • Lovely spot at a flooded gravel quarry. Modern visitor centre which serves coffee and snacks. Lots of walks around the other small local wetlands.
  • Best to take the wood walk as lake is all brambles and no view of lake
  • Such a nice place for a walk, especially if you like wildlife. If not call in to the cafe for a piece of the best carrot cake ever!!
  • Great for the walkers & bird watchers , the cafe has really good food and cake
