These lakes were constructed by the Forestry Commission and are a popular attraction for walking, cycling and other adventure activities.

Voted the best place to picnic in the South West in the Warburton's Picnic Awards 2010.

The lower lake can be booked for boating activities - groups only. The lakeside path is easy access and has benches dotted alongside it - good vantage points for watching mandarins and other ducks.

The family cycle trail passes close by and Go Ape is located a short walk from the car park.

There are also three walking trails, a running trail and ramblers routes: Adidas Running Trail ; Mallards Pike Path ; Mallards Pike to Wenchford Link Path ; Pluckpenny Trail
