Following updated government guidelines Talkin Tarn car park is once again open to visitors. To assist with social distancing we have put in place a one way system around the tarn footpath that we are asking visitors to adhere too.
For the time being the toilet facilities and the tearoom remain closed, and please keep dogs on leads in the designated zones. Please also consider that the wildlife of Talkin Tarn has enjoyed having the site to themselves over the last few weeks so please keep your dogs under close control at all times as there may be birds that have nested closer to the tarn path than what they would do normally.
Please also note that there will be no issuing of permits for boat launch and fishing for the time being.
So please respect each other, respect social distancing and please do enjoy Talkin Tarn once again at this most beautiful time of year.
There is now a dogs on leads zone in operation at Talkin Tarn. It includes the footpath starting from the car park entrance and Alex Boathouse, onwards in front and behind the Tearoom area and then extends to along the path just past the sailing boats.
Please see the embedded map for more information.
Please respect the wildlife and other visitors to the Tarn and keep your dog on a lead in these areas.
