Description: From Watersmeet car park take the path opposite it down to Watersmeet, where the east Lyn River and Hoar Oak Water meet in a deep oak-wooded valley. You will also find here the National Trust fishing lodge which offers superb food with lots of tables to sit out and watch the river with dippers and herons. There are also numerous footpaths where you might find a more rugged location for a picnic beside the river.
