Lovely beach, not too crowded. Couple of restaurants, kayaks, fishing, etc. Unfortunately fishing equipment is not available to hire. Small mountain bike park, holiday chalets, camping, and a couple of rather sad-looking tennis courts. We took a walk around the lake - about 40 minutes...More

A beautiful place which was a joy to relax in... The large wooden sun beds suitable for 2+ adults were a nice touch. Would love to go again in Summer when the boats are available

Hi! Yes you can take dogs but they are not allowed on the beach. There are plenty of wooden tables and benches in the picnic areas where you can go with a dog and you can take them to the café and walk around the lake.
