Reservoir Walk


This is a full circuit of the lake and combines the Family and Woodstock walks. It is the best way to discover hidden inlets and stunning views from every perspective.

The gravel track is often steep on the far (western) side, and it’s longer and twistier than the near side.
Top Tip: Do it clockwise for a flatter finish.
