Roadford Lake

Broadwoodwidger, Devon, PL16 0JL   Tel: 01566 784859

With over 730 acres of water, Roadford Lake is a spectacular lake set on the edge of Dartmoor between Okehampton and Launceston, very easily accessed from  the A30, and with ample parking. On the southern bank you will find the Lakeside Cafe and Function Suite which includes a Visitor Centre, giving information on the history of the valley, with interactive exhibits. The Lakeside Cafe and Gift Shop and Visitor Centre are open daily.

Roadford is home to the striking 6m stainless steel Diamond Jubilee Sundial which is Devon's gift to the Her Majesty The Queen to commemorate the six decades of Her Majesty's reign.

Visitors to this side of the lake can enjoy miles of footpaths and a cycleway which winds its way through a maturing planted forest overlooking the Lake. Or you can take a rowing boat to explore the scenery from a different perspective from the water.

Across the water is the popular Outdoor + Active Centre offering brown trout angling, sailing, windsurfing, rowing, kayaking and camping. Instructors are on hand for tuition, self launch and hire, please call the centre for further information or e-mail
