Walking, cycling and riding around Bewl Water 

The Route

The 12 ½ mile round water route is open to cyclists and horse riders during the drier summer months and follows a trail through woodland, meadow and country lanes all of which are made up of a variety of surfaces. Part of the Round Water Route closes during the winter months.

Route Status: 


Paths from the visitor's car park as far as Hatherells Jetty on the clockwise route and to  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 Waterfront Café.

Cycles can be hired from the Cycle Hire Shop, click here for more information.
