It's safe to say it's best to visit this location after weeks and months of constant rainfall, however there are still many more cool sites to see during draught season such as the hidden village! Normally the remains of the Derwent Village are under the water level.

Great location for a walk. Picturesque. Beautiful place to take your other half or family. Would definitely recommend. Even driving through is really nice. – Google Review

Overall, visitors will enjoy a beautiful walk surrounded by gorgeous views all round when they visit Ladybower Reservoir. It has some unique sites and lots of opportunities for stunning photos. If you ever want a break from the world, this is the place to be!
