About Draycote Water
Draycote Water, Warwickshire's largest reservoir was created in the 1960's. Not only does it provide drinking water for Rugby, it is renowned for its Country Park, which is a haven for wildlife with plenty of bird habitation, making it a Mecca for bird watchers from the rural Heart of England. The park's bird hide and feeding station is sponsored by the West Midland Bird Club. To give visitors an idea of the size and scope of Draycote Water, the Country Park covers some 600 acres and the reservoir holds up to a staggering 5,000 million gallons of water.
The scenery is superb, perfect for relaxing, strolling in woods or doing a bit of fishing. It is also a popular place for anyone who prefers to take their pleasure messing around in boats! There are several cycle tracks, and as you would expect, plenty of idyllic spots to enjoy a picnic. In certain weather conditions you can often enjoy watching colourful kites whizzing up and down in the air.
The closest village is the delightful village of Dunchurch, with the town of Rugby being within easy driving distance.
