Stewartby Lake Country Park
Also known as Millennium Country Park, this lovely area covers over 500 acres and includes woodland, grassland, meadow, lakes and wetland habitats.
There are well surfaced paths for cyclists and walkers taking you along Stewartby lake and Pillinge Lake before passing the village of Marston Moretaine. If you are on foot you can also follow the Wetlands Trail throught the nature reserve within the park. Here you will find a number of bird hides from which you can observe a variety of winged visitors.
There is also an excellent visitor centre with a Lakeside Cafe bar, gift shop and bike hire.
If you want to continue your walk you could follow the Marston Vale Timberland Trail which visits some of the most interesting and attractive parts of Marston Vale and runs right through the park.
Stewartby Lake is located right next to Millbrook and Stewartby rail stations and about 5 miles south of Bedford.
