I would recommend this wak/run for whoever lives in Rugby and wants a day out or a run outside the town. The parking costs £3 for 2 hours (enough for a run) or £4 for all day.

It's a pleasant amble around this wide open reservoir surrounded by rolling Warwickshire countryside. Well paved, but with short diversions available along smaller paths to the waterside or among surrounding trees. On our June outing it was noteworthy for hundreds of wheeling swallows and, of course, ducks, coots, swans and geese. Lovely rather than spectacular .. but even during times of plague and pestilence there are fine refreshments to complete your walk.

Always enjoy walking round Draycott and have cycled it many times in both directions. There is a cycle path and walking path in some places. Parking is expensive so l found a place at the back of Draycott in Dunchurch where you can park for free, walk past the Al Pacas then under the bridge where you walk down a hill to the gate into Draycott. Please note no dogs allowed in Draycott reservoir area.

This is a nice easy trail as it's mostly level terrain with a few small inclines. It's idea for bike riding as the paths have a good amount of space. The trail is well looked after and extremely clean. There is also a bird hide that you can sit in and look out onto the water.

Nice paved 4.8 mile loop and a nice facilities to finish back at the waterside restaurant offering breakfast or lunch. Parking is £3 for two hours or £4 for the day!!!!!! (You can tap your credit card) We took a gentle stroll and did it in 1hr 40 mins. Only toilets are at the start under the restaurant so go pee before heading out.

Running
First to Review

Nice scenic 4.6 mile loop. Paths all the way around but options to divert on to trails here and there. For the most part very flat. Parking £3. Look forward to doing this run again.
