Bewl Water, Lamberhurst

Bewl is a big, beautiful reservoir offering a fantastic range of outdoor activities - there's fun stuff to do all year round. Oh and a decent restaurant too!

Weekend Escapes

Did you know Bewl Water is the largest stretch of open water in the South East ? An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the heart of the High Weald. Open all year, a visit to this stunning reservoir is fantastic family fun and great value.

Looking for healthy, outdoor fun for all ages and abilities? Bewl Water offers a fantastic range of leisure and recreational activities, including fishing, cycling and boating, on and around the reservoir. There is also a café and restaurant located on the shoreline which offer dining facilities as well as event and corporate hire spaces.

Bewl Water is located near the picturesque village of Lamberhurst and the beautiful Scotney Castle, and within an hour’s drive of Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Tonbridge, Maidstone, Ashford, Eastbourne and Sevenoaks via the adjacent A21. A trip to Bewl Water makes for a great day out on the Kent and Sussex border.

FUN FACT: Did you know? The Bewl Water reservoir, when full, holds more than 31,000 million litres of water.

For casual dining The Waterfront Café has a large terrace overlooking the lake and is the perfect location to take in the views, enjoy a light lunch or a selection of snacks, ice creams and drinks.

If it’s more of an up-market restaurant atmosphere you’re after, Mr Muddy and I have eaten at The Boat House Bistro on several occasions – you just can’t beat that stunning panoramic view overlooking the water.

Bewl offer fantastic kids parties, like the Laser Challenge, Aqua Park or Electric Mini ranger cars!

That’s not all folks, this place is licensed for weddings! They can host both the ceremony and reception meaning couples can choose to marry to the backdrop of that beautiful stretch of open water.

Enjoy Bewl Water for the entire day for just £5 per car.
