About Cow Green

Prepare to be blown away by the empowering views of the Pennine Way on a day trip to Cow Green Reservoir.

Cow Green gives you a truly peaceful moorland walk and a simply spectacular waterfall at Cauldron Snout – an unforgettable trip for individual, groups and families.

Offering top wild brown trout fishing, exhilarating walking, bird watching and wondrous views, you will want to visit this place time and time again. Part of the reservoir is a protected nature reserve so please make sure you stay on the footpath.

Dedicated a dark sky site, you can marvel at the out of this world night skies and epic stargazing opportunities.



For snacks, refreshments and enquiries visit our Grassholme Reservoir visitor centre just ten minutes down the road.
