  • So much for the kids to do. Reasonable parking charges. Absolutely stunning scenery, can't wait to go back! Just take a change of clothes and towels for the kids as there is a mud pool they can play in and believe me they love it!
  • Lovely day out, lots of climbing and play equipment for children with more being added. Can get extremely busy on a nice day. Open air cinema nights are good and they offer lots of activities for a wide spectrum of people, from children's baking to pottery classes. Truly is an area of natural beauty.
  • I love this place, I spend hours here. Plenty of parking, lots to do for adults and kid's. Open all year round. If you like walking, cycling or just relaxing this is the right place to be.
  • Loved it. Something for all. Went with a wide age range of children and one with special educational needs amd a puppy. All loved it. Coffee shop and big play area with a lovely walk. Walk had fun play things around it to keep the children amused.
  • The little one had a great time splashing around in the lakes and building up the courage to go down the "big slide". Only mandatory expense is the parking, so I would definitely recommend Stanwick Lakes for an afternoon of entertaining children.
