carsington water - image via Plant Hunter Fairs ©We are really pleased to bring Plant Hunters' Fairs to Derbyshire with three great events at Carsington Water, a superb location rich in wildlife, scenery and activities for people of all ages. Boasting a Country Park with plenty of space for family games and picnics, and also the recently refurbished visitor centre and a brand new children's play area, Carsington is a great place for a family day out. There is also a sailing club and trout fishery for those looking for an activity to get involved with. Dogs and barbeques are welcome in the Country Park. There are 8 miles of paved walks from short strolls to long serious walks. The reservoir was always conceived as a natural looking haven for wildlife and exciting space for water-based activities co-existing in harmony. The restaurant serves a wide range of lunches and refreshments and has windows and a terrace that give panoramic views of the water and park.
