Grassholme Reservoir has some of the prettiest views of all our reservoir and offers wildlife and nature galore. If you love a great walk with the family, the circular footpath around the reservoir showcases the magnificent views of the Teesdale valley, alongside the simple wonder and calmness of the water. You can take life at your own pace here and relish some me-time in the spa of fresh air greenery. Pack up a cool box full of goodies for an alfresco treat at one of our picnic areas and bask in the tranquil world of Grassholme.
Please can we remind all visitors that entering the water for unauthorised swimming, water sports / inflatables fun or just for a quick cool down is not allowed. We like to keep all our visitors safe and to do this we must request that you stay out of the water and its hidden dangers at all times.
Our circular walk is a fantastic way to see all the reservoir and surrounding views, as well as keeping fit and healthy.
Keep your eyes peeled for all kinds of creatures, from soaring birds to jumping rabbits and scurrying beetles. We have a wonderland that nature loves.
A perfect spot for the perfect night sky. On a clear night, you will be amazed at the wonders you can see from here. Events run from the observatory Wednesday to Sunday. www.grassholmeobservatory.com
