Rudyard Lake (Staffordshire) Reviews
Newest Review: ... that you can catch from this car park to this lake which is very cute and popular with the kids but also quite expensive at about £3-4 I believe. There are public toilets at the lake which is rather handy as you don't want to be caught short, especailly if you've just been on a hike! Next to the lake there is a delightful little cafe which serves hot and cold food and drinks and is resonably priced. There is seating outside so you can have a cup of tea and look across at the lake. There are also various benches which each give you a different view on this beautiful lake. I know you may be thinking, its only a lake, but once you have visited... more

Many years ago when the famous writer Rudgeyard Kipling's parents visited Rudgeyard Lake they thought it was so beautiful they named there son after this place. Whereas I won't be recommending the name to my recently pregnant friend I do agree that this place is truly stunning. Rudgeyard is a small village in Staffordshire and is most famous for its lake.

A few months ago my partners mum bought a mobile home on location, in a purpose built park, within a 5 minute walk of Rudyard Lake. A short while after this I had the pleasure of spending a long weekend with my partner and her daughter in the newly acquired mobile home. Rudyard Lake is ideally located very close to both Macclesfield & Leak (Just off the A523), and commutable from many surrounding towns / cities. The lake is a few miles in length, and on a 'family walk' you can walk around the entire lake within 3 4 hours. Although the one side of the lake is almost cycle track/canal like in appearance, the other side is somewhat more wild, and more of a mission, ... Read the complete review

Rudyard Lake over the years has become one of my favourite places to go if I am looking to go out for a picnic or a fairly chilled out day. I discovered Rudyard only a couple of years ago even though it is located very close to where I live and only 20 minutes drive away. I had heard people talking of it, however never ventured out to take a look for myself, having been there quite a few times, it is really a worthwhile place to visit for a tranquil setting. Rudyard Lake is situated near Leek, Staffordshire. Following the winding roads through the Staffordshire Moorlands, you will come straight to Rudyard Hotel, a very nice hotel, quite cosy and nice to sit ... Read the complete review
