Visited with family. Parking is free however roads to the reservoir are quite narrow. Scenery is just beautiful especially at this time of year as the leaves are changing colour. Plenty of seating located around the reservoir for a rest if needed. Great photos opportunities....More

Typical reservoir fare with man made up decent quality paths going all round it. Easily accessible from Osmotherly or Cote Ghyll campsite

We had a lovely afternoon picnic-ing here while the kids played in the stream and explored the undergrowth. Followed by a walk the following day around the reservoir it's self which is a beautiful walk but not too long for children.

This is a very well kept public area. When we visited extensive work to prepare wheelchair accessible pathways was being carried out. Great for walking your dog and lots of wildlife to be seen.

Not many hills as such, there is a marked walk way but you may struggle getting through the push gate as it only half opens (one of the old fashioned kissing gates) if you can get past that it's fairly flat all the way round... More
