South West Lakes Trust

Our charity is dedicated to caring for and enhancing the South West's reservoirs and lakes: they are home to wonderful animals and boast important habitats and built historic sites.

As an independent charity, our purpose is to protect special places for people and wildlife; in doing this we care for over 40 inland waters in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Ranging in size from one to nine hundred acres, the lakes provide unrivalled access to watersports, angling, walking and cycling, and are places you can be active or play and explore all day long.
