Goyt Valley is a lovely reservoir called Erwood, there are all different walks around it, and it's great to dog walk round or collect blackberries, with easy access

I've been to a few valleys but this is up there with the best. The walks around it are so easy and lovely. Went here with the family and will be coming back soon.

Drove through the valley and had to stop to capture the moment! There are places to stop and admire the views. Make sure you take food and drink supplies, obviously no where to go in the valley!

Lovely place to visit, sad to see the reservoir so low, we walked from the car park down to the edge of the water, lovely for dog walkers really makes you miss having a dog. This was recommended by the Lee Wood Hotel, Buxton.
