Relax: Barnsdale

    Relax at Rutland Water

    Away from action packed sports, the attractive setting of the reservoir in 3,100 acres of countryside, lends itself perfectly to a relaxing Summer picnic spot, a leisurely stroll along the shore or a nap in a deck chair. Rutland Water has plenty of picnic tables around the key sites and if the weather turns, there are plenty of cosy Pubs and Inns to rest tired feet and fill empty tummies!

    One of the quieter spots is the Barnsdale car park (LE15 8AB), which is known for it’s wooded walks, most beautiful during Bluebell season!
