Hollingworth Lake– It’s a lovely place in Rochdale to take your dogs for a walk . Whether it be just around the lake itself, Or if you prefer you can tackle the surrounding hillsides which takes in parts is saddleworth moor where you may see roe deer , hare and a variety of moorland birds which will be starting to nest soon . You could really spend the whole day just exploring the countryside and enjoying nature . I recommend also Ogden reservoir which is in walking distance of Hollingworth lake . There are a few hard terrain parts but as long as you dress well you well enjoy some stunning views .
But if you just want a gentle walk as we have to at the moment because our doggies are getting on a bit now . Hollingsworth lake is perfect as it’s all flat and very accessible .
There are plenty of places to eat and drink too so we decided to take our doggies for a pub lunch .
