Lake / Reservoir

Set in the heart of the High Weald and surrounded by 800 acres of outstanding natural beauty, Bewl Water is the perfect place to watch the seasons change and to enjoy some healthy family fun for all ages.

Bewl Water offers a range of activities that are sure to entertain the whole family. Take to the water on the Bewl Belle, enjoy a relaxing fishing trip or a gentle ramble beside the water’s edge with your four legged friends!

Fun fact: the reservoir holds 31,000 megalitres!!

The Bewl Water Walk

Want to kick it up a notch? The full route around the water is 12.5 miles and can be walked, run or cycled, with bike hire available from March-October or you can bring your own.

Refuel in the Boat House Bistro, where you can enjoy quality dining (like freshly caught trout from the reservoir) and tasty treats in a tranquil setting with panoramic views of the water. Children’s roast dinners are on offer every Sunday. Or enjoy a post-walk coffee or hot chocolate and watch the boats come and go on The Terrace.

Bewl Water’s walking and cycle path is open all year round and there are many activities to fill the warmer months. Whether you are looking for an active, fun-filled day out with the family or to simply enjoy the peace and serenity of the countryside, the possibilities at Bewl Water are endless!

And now with parking just £3, a day at Bewl is great value for money.

Aqua Park

2019 saw the introduction of a new adrenalin fuelled feature in the form of the inflatable assault course on the reservoir water! Suitable for ages 6 and up - if you love water, this is a gigglefest galore! Great for groups of friends and family.

Activities throughout the year include*:
Walking, cycling, bike hire, pedalo and row boats, canoeing, sailing, rowing, adventure playgrounds, fishing, The Bewl Belle boat, Water Taxis, dining at the Boat House Bistro and The Waterfront Café, and much more!

*Please note that certain activities are subject to availability and change. For more information, please visit the website or get in touch.

A variety of special events are held during the course of the year such as the Austin Seven Rally, the Christmas Experience, the Big Dog Day Out, Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Outdoor Cinema Nights.

A new cookery school has opened up for private groups of up to 3 – an ingenious gift for a foodie fanatic.

Get back to basics with camping for small groups and romantic breaks against this serene backdrop. Check the website for opening dates.

Wedding ceremonies and receptions, stag and hen do’s, and conferences can be held at Bewl Water too. There is plenty of parking and space for everyone.

Only a 30 minute drive from the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells through some stunning countryside, passing Bayham Abbey and Scotney Castle on your way, follow the brown tourist signs to the other side of the pretty village of Lamberhurst.

An equally enjoyable way to reach Bewl Water would be to get on your bike. If you go the pretty way then it would take just under an hour to get there. Depending on which route you choose, it’s between 8.5 and 9.5 miles.

Here to delight your daydreams, have a look at A Day of Discovery at Beautiful Bewl Water by Royal Tunbridge Wells mum, Clare Lush-Mansell, about her day out with the kids at Bewl Water.
