This is a super place for both long and short walks, there is a steam train along one side of the lake, and a nice little cafe on the other. Worth a stop. Free parking next to steam train.

We stayed in a converted boathouse on Rudyard Lake, right next to the Sailing Club. The Lake is a large reservoir, built at the end of the 18th century to feed the canals. The walk around the outside is about 5 miles, which is great,...More

Fabulously beautiful area, sill lake, walks around the lake are glorious. Little boat houses where you can sit and while away the time. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Row boats are for hire (10 pounds per half hour), we were...More

Free entry unlike Trentham but you can see why, there's nothing for kids to do, the boats had hardly anyone on and the cafe is run down. The walk around the lake is really nice but if you're with kids they're going to find it...More

Hi, not at the time we were there, but there are a lot of trees so I should think if you went walking there would be. Avon, skin so soft, does the trick. Good enough for the marines.
