Suggested Launch Site - Launching is excellent from the main car park area - a range of wooden pontoons are in place on the water for easy launch.
Description - A beautiful private lake in the Staffordshire hills, much loved by boat users. Around 2km long, it makes for an enjoyable leisure day, particularly with children. On the eastern bank runs the miniature steam railway, and around the lake are numerous interesting waterside houses.
The beauty of the facilities (cafe, toilets, easy pontoon launching) makes it excellent for multiple sessions on the water. In busy times, you will share the water with many other boats, but the scenery you are in is wonderful.
Launch fee of £7 per boat
