Short stroll from car park.Bramley14/09/2019
Country Park. Only took a couple of minutes so no need to pay. Summit is in field of ridge and furrow.Herbert Anchovy08/05/2019
1st of 4 Warwickshire tumps today. 06.37 Train from Nottingham to Leamington Spa then 63 bus on main road. I managed to make this harder than it should have been by taking farm track then veering off for top but i was the wrong side of the hedge so had to cross 2 Bw fences then an easy stroll to the top, a few metres from the clump of trees with the Trig pillar further down the slope. Followed grassy track down to the Visitor centre to enjoy a cappuccino, waiting for the next bus to Stockton and my 3 Tump traverse to Byfield...Dazingdale08/12/2018
Easily accessed from the car park, done just before a loop of the reservoirCap_Thunderbolt03/11/2018
Easy access from the car park. Now £3 if you fancy contributing.Play2End25/08/2018
During 2 lap run of Draycot waternell158324/03/2018
From very wide verge of A425 outside the Country Park gate, noted hill top car pk accessible via overflow car pk. I spent 45 min going up the hill and wandering along the resr perimeter path trying to spot the Iceland Gull in the drizzle and failing light.pwheeler09/03/2018
Grassy 'ridge and furrow' hill top with public access S of visitor centre. Good, if a little flat, views. Lots of Goldeneye on reservoir. By cycle.RichardM15/02/2018
From visitors' centre car park, £2.50 seemed extortionate for 15 mins so didn't pay. Thought HP was about 12m SW of trig.Aye Jimmy11/08/2017
Well at least I put some effort in to bag this Tump. Cycled 14 miles from the NAEC at Stoneleigh. And back again. With a slowly deflating back tyre. Nice enough hill summit above the reservoir.Minto08/07/2017
It's a 10-15 minute round trip from the visitor centre carpark, HP a few metres from trig as others have noted. We took it in turns and then cleared off, being too stingy to fork out the minimum £2.50 parking charge. Severn Trent's loss as we would have happily have forked out a quid for an hour but option not available.milimana22/06/2017
5 small hills and a ridge linked together by 6 small dams to produce a reservoir 5 miles around with no natural feeder streams. Water is pumped in from River Leam or other reservoirs. Serves the like of Coventry and Rugby. Parked on grass verge of main road as barrier had closed at dusk - would only open to let cars out.Chris Pearson13/05/2017
Agree with PeterD. Damp dawn stroll.Campbell Singer12/02/2017
Walked up from visitors centre car park on path to trig. I though HP was about 30m to SW of trig.PeterD03/11/2016
From visitor centre CP. Not convinced that grid ref is at the highest point. Lots of ripples near the top.chrisbien10/10/2016
En passant; break of journey.summitsup17/03/2016
The summit is a quarter-mile stroll up from Draycote Water visitor centre carpark following footpaths across rough grass. The summit features a trig column and a clump of trees. There are wide views over the Leam valley and across Draycot Water reservoir.Skip20/10/2014
You can park a few metres from the top. Alternatively park at the Draycote Water visitor centre from the back of which a gate leads to a grassy path to the top. You can descend further along Draycote Water to make a very short and easy circular walk. Good facilities and cafe at the visitor centre.ijpowell19/04/2014
I think the high point may be about 50 meters NE of the trig. Didn't stop long today as dogs are not very welcome around the resevoir. Quick dash to the top and back again.Father Ted16/12/2013
Draycote top Southam. 5 minute saunter from bus stop.Smudge19/10/2013
Near to a sailing club.Adrian22/10/2011
