Price: Once you're there, it won't cost you a thing
Toilets: There are no toilets on site, the nearest toilets can be found in the villages of Upper Boddington and Byfield, 1/2 mile walk in either direction
But where Boddington Reservoir excells is in its fishing. It's one of the South Midlands' top match venues, a 65-acre reservoir where you are virtually guaranteed a catch. Anglers return here time and time again.
Places to eat:
While it's all about the picnics at the reservoir, the villages of Upper Boddington and Byfield are around half a mile away and offer a number of cafes and pubs
There are picnic benches dotted around the reservoir and plenty of places to lay a picnic blanket down
Since the creation of the reservoir it has been gradually colonised by birds, insects and wild flowers. Look out for some more unusual wildlife: green woodpeckers, toads, grass snakes, gulls and, of course, our thriving fish population
