Shearwater Lake, Crockerton, Warminster, Somerset

Shearwater Lake is a manmade freshwater lake covering 37 acres within the Longleat estate in Wiltshire, formed from a tributary of the River Wylye. People come here to appreciate the wonderful scenery on foot, bike or horseback, or to stop for a picnic; others come for sailing or angling.

It’s a lovely place to go and connect with the great outdoors, to be close to nature and fill your lungs with wholesome fresh air. Stroll around the lake or explore one of the woodland trails, enjoying the views and the scent of the surrounding pine forest. After a stroll it’s nice to round off your visit in the tea room, where they serve breakfast, lunch, tea and cake. Buy a bag of bird food, go down to the waters edge and feed the ducks. Simple pleasures are often the best.

Shearwater Lake is less than 3 miles from Warminster and under 9 miles from Frome.
