A lovely area to visit with super walks and cycling tracks around the reservoir. Ideal for dog walking. Cafe and gift shop along with discovery centre. Staff very friendly and attentive and cafe food well presented and reasonably priced. Wildlife in abundance and a bird hide is available.

Went here today, great walks around the lake with lovely views. Not a problem for pram and wheelchair users. You can go off the beaten track. There are bird hides, for your use, lots of seating and grassed areas for picnics. There is a modest car park fee, a gift shop and restaurant and a venue area. You can take... More

Roadford Lake Country Park is a lovely venue for a stroll with well-defined paths, some tarmacked, some gravelled (but suitable for a wheelchair, buggy, cycle, etc.), all in a lovely setting. There is a good car park (there's a modest charge), plenty of benches on the walk and a teashop/restaurant/function room serving meals and snacks. The restaurant, which also boasts... More

I really wanted to review the cafe but couldn't find it on Trip Advisor! So... the lake is fab! Very picturesque with lovely walks, water sports, wildlife etc. But the Lakeside Cafe! Well! Brilliant! Friendly staff and great variety on the menu serving homemade local produce. Really reasonably priced. We had soup and paninis and cake. All delicious and the... More

Stopped here to take our dog for a walk. Signage says keep dogs on a lead and asks to clear up after your dogs. Saw many dogs off lead and a fair amount of dog "poo" not picked up! The signage showing foot paths was very faint and needed painting some sign posts had no information on them at all.... More

Stopped by here on a trip around the SW recently, and even though it was a soggy day it was still a pleasure. Evidently loads to do and see, lots of walks with useful distances added for the hardy walkers and the lightweights! Watersports available too. We used the restaraunt also and were impressed by the fare on offer. As... More
