Walking, cycling and riding around Bewl Water
The 12 ½ mile Round Water Route is open to cyclists and horse riders during the dryer summer months and follows a trail through woodland, meadow and country lanes and is made up of a variety of surfaces. Part of the Round Water Route closes during the winter months.
THE ROUND WATER ROUTE IS OPEN FOR THE SPRING AND SUMMER MONTHS TO CYCLES AND HORSES:
Paths from the visitors car park as far as Hatherells jetty on the clockwise route and to the Seven Pound Creek jetty on the anti-clockwise route are open to cyclists and horses throughout the winter. Due to wet conditions, after this point the route is only open to walkers who must stay on the pathways at all times.
There is horse box parking signposted from the main entrance and costs £10 for the day, payable at the main entrance gate, when staffed, or in the Waterfront Café.
Cycles can be hired from the Cycle hire shop, click here for more information.
