Roadford Lake, situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Wolf Valley, is a must-visit attraction during your stay in Devon.

Your little adventurers will love exploring and discovering all of the fun things to do at this impressive lake, the largest inland water in the south west. Ditch the iPads, immerse yourself in nature and create lasting memories with the family. Den building, venturing through woodlands, hunting for mini-beasts and, of course, enjoying a well-deserved ice cream from the popular Roadford Café and Venue are bound to be a huge hit.

Head over to the Activity Centre and enjoy a family adventure like no other.

Explore the lake by kayak, learn how to stand up paddleboard, spot wildlife from a canoe, hit the bullseye in a game of archery, face your fears and attempt the high ropes course, learnhow to turn in a sail boat, relax and enjoy a spot of Trout fishing. Why not extend your stay and enjoy a great night’s stay under canvas?

Get your children learning and having fun on their next adventure by downloading South West Lake’s 101 things to do this summer booklet and activity sheets. Identify trees, track prints, discover different leaves or go on a bug hunt. Visit the children’s play area, located next to the café, or enjoy the plentiful open space for informal games.

Embrace the outdoors and experience Roadford Lake by bike or foot. The network or footpaths and cycle tracks suit visitors of all ages and abilities. Don’t forget to bring the dog! They want your four-legged friends to enjoy this special place. All they ask is for you to keep your dog on a lead and out of the water.

Visit the Roadford Lake Café and Venue, with a warm welcome all year round. Whether it’s a delicious cream tea or a light lunch from the specials board, Roadford will never disappoint. Locally sourced food, friendly staff and extraordinary lake views makes for an unforgettable visit. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a souvenir from the gift shop. 

Roadford is home to an abundance of wildlife including otters, bats, dormice and the rare Marsh Fritillary butterfly. A variety of birdlife can also be seen and, if you are lucky, you may even spot a Roe deer by the water’s edge.
