We used to enjoy calling at the café near the Lake but now it is closed most days which is quite sad. Used to sit near and watch the wildlife but now it is closed off in the week.

The actual lakes are very pretty, as is the setting and the surrounding countryside, however, I was left completely baffled by the member of staff who served us at the window kiosk. We requested two bottles of water, a cake bar, and a mint flavored...More

Yes I'm afraid it is, unless we came in the wrong entrance from the main road, but I don't think we did. As far as we know that was the only access and exit road and it was really bumpy and rough.
