This area is amazing to walk the dogs. Not over crowed and so many different routes to take. Extremely peaceful and worth a few hours out walking the dogs

A beautiful ramble any time of the year. The walk changes with each season and never fails to make you stop and wonder at the views. A well signed circular route round a lake which attracts different birds during the year.

It's a very nice and gentle walk around a lake with bird watch house and beautiful light. Specially at sunset and sunrise, the light is great for all photography lover and bird watch. The walk is flat and easy access for all age groups.

A very pleasant walk, many birds on the lake, including ducks, geese and comorants. Be sure to wear boots or wellies as parts can be very muddy

An easy walk - a little muddy in places - to see a lot of wildlife. Aquatic bird life including kingfishers, herons and all manner of ducks. Foxes, otters, deer, weasels and stoats all seen here. Lovely flowers including orchids in the spring and summer.
