We LOVE Mallard’s Pike Lake – its almost always busy with dogs and people though so make sure you’re ready before you set off! Its a large lake in the Forest with a dedicated dog-dip area. Dogs are often off-lead in the surrounding woods and the dip area, as well as around the cafe and all over really!
There’s a few other things here to enjoy:
The cafe is open 10-5 daily throughout the summer, and on weekends 10-5 throughout the winter. The Lake is always open and accessible! You can park for free nearby but there is also a pay and display car park as this is Forestry Land.
