Siblyback Lake

OS Grid ref:- SX 2371

Siblyback LakeSiblyback Country park lies on the edge of scenic Bodmin Moor and offers a perfect location to enjoy a number of land and water based activities. The Country Park is situated near to the historic town of Liskeard.

Siblyback Lake is actually a reservoir owned by South West Water but hosts facilities which are run by Waterfront Sports in Exmouth. Siblyback is rated as one of the best recreational reservoirs in the county of Cornwall.

A Watersports and Angling Centre offers visitors tuition, launch and hire for sailing, windsurfing and canoeing for beginners to the experienced. The new Cable Wakeboarding System is the only clockwise cable system in the UK. Bank and boat trout fishing are also available. Permits for rainbow trout angling are available on site, and boats for angling can also be booked.

The striking and distinctive scenery of Bodmin Moor surrounds the Green grade "Lakeside Trail", the pleasant circular walk around the lake, meanders through woodland in places and takes around an hour to complete and also links in to public footpaths. The path enables wheelchair access around the entire lake. There is a tea-room which overlooks the lake and offers a selection of light meals, cakes, ice creams and drinks and is open Easter - end of September.

Siblyback LakeThe children's parks at Siblyback provide an ideal place for play, there is also the Siblyback Segway Experience, which features ten feet high ropes and archery.

There is also a wealth of wildlife to watch and discover, with a bird hide for observation. Dogs are welcome at the Lake but must be kept on lead and out of the water. There is ample parking on site. For those wishing to spend a weekend at the site there is a small but friendly campsite situated on the water's edge, which is open from Easter - October.


Siblyback Lake lies beteen the A30 and the A38 just out of Liskeard. From the M5, take the A30 and keep going passing Launceston. Pass the small village of Bolventor, and take the left turn with drops down towards the A38.

The road then takes you past Siblyback Country Park before you then doubling back and heading back up to the entrance to the reservoir.
