Rules to Remember
We want you to have fun when visiting us and have come up with some park rules to keep everyone safe and happy.
- Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.
Your furry friend is always welcome at Hollowell Reservoir, but we do ask that for the safety and enjoyment of others, your dog is kept on a lead. Please also note that dogs are not allowed in our water.
- No swimming.
Swimming is not permitted in the reservoir. With the water varying in depths, slippery banks and hidden hazards such as pipework and weeds, swimming in our reservoir can be dangerous.
Where to Eat
All that walking, birdwatching and sailing can work up quite the appetite and so at Hollowell you will find a vending machine for drinks and refreshments. Members of the Hollowell Sailing Club can also visit the club’s full licensed bar.
Looking for a hearty meal? Then why not support the local area and visit one of the pubs located in and around Hollowell.
Our water parks not only bring vital water resources for the region, but they also provide a fantastic day out for all the family.
Whether you're looking for an action-packed day on the water, a spot of fishing to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life, or simply want to enjoy a relaxing walk in beautiful surroundings, look no further than our fabulous water parks.
