Ravensthorpe Reservoir

Ravensthorpe is a 100-acre Victorian reservoir and is the oldest of our Northamptonshire reservoirs situated in a sheltered valley.

Anglers can enjoy trout fishing in peaceful surroundings from the bank of the reservoir, by boat or float tube. Bird watchers are welcomed. However, to avoid disturbance, access is restricted to permit holders only. Bird Watching Permits are available from the nearby Pitsford Fishing Lodge and include access to Pitsford and Hollowell reservoirs.

The Fishing Lodge at Ravensthorpe Reservoir has a small selection of flies and leaders for sale and there are facilities for a hot drink.

We want everyone to enjoy visiting our Water Parks and most importantly we want you to stay safe – please visit our Using our Parks Safely page


There is parking at Ravensthorpe Fishing Lodge for Anglian Water fishing and Nature Reserve and this is restricted to permit holders only.

Opening times

Ravensthorpe Reservoir is open every day except Christmas Day. Site closing times are advertised at car park entrances - a guideline would suggest between 9am and dusk. Access to the Nature Reserve is available throughout the year and is restricted to permit holders only.
