Lovely easy walk with beautiful views and nature, however, whilst we like a walk in the rain, it was so heavy today that we ended up cutting the route short. We'll have to come back on a clearer day! Worth noting too that all the toilet facilities are shut at the moment.

This is a decent walk on reasonably flat terrain. It's a circular around the reservoir, so a nice scenic trail. We did the walk in late October which, with the autumnal colours (see photos), made for a very pleasant couple of hours! Highly recommended.

Very nice walk. Nearly all of it is around the edge of the reservoirs so it’s fairly flat. Good stone path laid all the way round so minimal amount of mud great for kids ,good way to pass three hours

I love this trail- third time this year and love seeing it in the changing seasons. Lovely sunny autumnal day, not too busy even though it was half term and managed to nab a picnic bench to half my lunch in the sun. Just need to come back in the winter!

Really enjoyed this walk with the dogs this morning. Not a hard walk for people who aren’t particularly fit and are wanting an easy walk but a good distance.

This is a nice easy walk we done Sunday morning with the dog. It took a little over 2 hours. The path is well paved so no problem in the wet with mud.
