Burrator Reservoir

About us

Undisturbed Burrator is surrounded by mixed woodland which sharply contrasts with the open moor and rugged Dartmoor tors.

The reservoir is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders due to its wealth of footpaths and bridleways. Many of the trails lead on to Dartmoor so it makes an ideal starting point for longer trips.

The circular walk which follows the lanes around the water is ideal for families as it is easy going and flat. It will take between 1.5 - 2 hours to complete and is approximately 3.5 miles. Parking is possible at various locations including the Quarry car park, Norsworthy Bridge and the Dam.

Low cost bank fishing for both rainbow and brown trout is available at this scenic water; permits are sold at the garage in Yelverton.

Being within Dartmoor National Park we kindly request that you drive and park with consideration to other users and animals.

The National Cycle Route 27 runs near to Burrator further information is available at www.sustrans.co.uk

Ice cream vans visit the dam, Norsworthy Bridge and Sharpitor car park.
