Grabbed an ice cream from the the main cafe and walked the 3 miles to the other cafe. Beautiful views along the way. Stopped off at the second cafe for a drink and cake. Very reasonably priced, and the cafe has a gorgeous view. Maybe next time we might attempt the who 9 miles right round.

Nice afternoon spent with friends near water. Lovely walk ending with a nice cup of tea at the local coffee shop. Very good bike shop.

I have been here few times, more recently to train for a 100km walk. So we walked around the reservoir twice. (18.5miles). Proved very useful and helpful for our longer walk due at the end of May 2017

Pleasant walks along the water's edge and a nature reserve make this venue worth a visit. The car park we found was tiny but free, accessed from a very narrow lane. People do bbq by the water but they litter badly also in the main from what i saw.

Great place for cycling and water sports, with interesting history in the whole of Huntingdonshire. If you love caravanning, or camping there are some wonderful sites to set up home for the week Come and enjoy this part of Cambridgeshire and experience how history was changed and shaped our democracy, by visiting place like the Cromwell Museum

Many parking lots around the lake (although parking fee is a bit steep at most parking lots), most of them with facilities. There is a very good bicycle shop/service too. There are... More

My wife and I visited Grafham Water Centre on Sunday 26th March 2017. We love walking so for our first real venture out of 2017 we chose to walk around Grafham Water, as the 10 mile trek seemed ideal for us. It cost us £3 to park for the day and we set off in a clockwise direction, which meant... More
