A couple of weekends ago Nathan and I wanted to get some fresh air and go for a walk. We weren’t sure where to go and so Nathan’s Dad suggested Siblyback Lake. He told us it wasn’t far and we could take a circular walk around the lake.

So we parked up at Siblyback Lake and paid to park. The lake is owned by South West Lakes and isn’t far from the Cornish town of Bodmin.

The lake was built in the late 1960’s and you can walk around the 3-mile route surrounding the lake. We enjoyed the flat walk and stopped to say hello to the ponies in a nearby field. We also stopped to admire the huge tall trees in the more wooded area of the walk. There’s something beautiful about looking up through tall trees to a sunny blue sky.

The walk also takes you across the dam where you can look down and see the water rushing down the other side. Nathan wasn’t so much of a fan of looking over the edge!

After our walk, we stopped off at the Rock Hopper Cafe and treated ourselves to an ice cream cone each. As usual, I chose the better flavour and so Nathan ate his then tried to nick mine!

I think Siblyback Lake is a nice place for an easy and relaxing walk. There were lots of families and people cycling round it too which looked like fun.

Where’s your favourite place to go for a Sunday stroll? Let me know in the comments below!
