Tunstall reservoir | local spots
Another reservoir ticked off the list and one I didn't even know existed until Em at work recommended it. About a half an hour drive down the A68, this reservoir is actually super easy to get to and is absolutely my favourite reservoir so far.
Surrounded on all sides by fields and forests, it's actually stunning. It's kind of what I picture a summer camp in America to be: a big lake surrounded by trees and pretty views.
The road leading to the reservoir is a bit narrow and windy but the views are really enjoyable and the reservoir was pretty much empty of people when I went; just a few lone fisherman at the edges.
I took Charlie with me so I didn't take my camera, but I managed to get a few shots on my phone and I'm already planning to come back.
