A scenic place on the edge of Dartmoor for a cycle ride or a gentle walk along a flat, circular lakeside route. Start at the pay and display car park, where there is also a cafe, toilets, gift shop and visitor centre (venue available for private functions, too). A short walk brings you to a play area to the side of the main building, which is on safety bark and has swings and slides.
The centre is home to a Outdoor and Active centre, for watersports such as windsurfing and kayaking, and there is a campsite too.
The footpaths are all signposted, but if it all gets too much hire a rowing boat!
Fishing is popular here, and tuition can be arranged for budding anglers.
It's open all year but opening times are reduced in winter so do check the website. Entrance is free but the car park has a small charge at £1 per hour.
