Took advantage of the lovely weather to visit here. Good stroll round the reservoir. Plenty of parking not too pricey pushchair and wheelchair friendly

This is a great place to visit in Summer, but it can get breezy around some parts of the lake. I tend to use it for cycling. It is a great and interesting few miles around. The grass area leading to the water's edge is a great area for family picnics.

The park is great especially for families with children, Lots of things to do especially for small children. You can,if you are feeling energetic, cycle or walk around Pitsford reservoir.

Visited during half term with a very autistic 13 year old boy. Really enjoyed our time, short walk, quick play on the park and a drink/snack from the cafe. It was the highlight of his week. Only question I have come away with is "Why are there no litter bins?" I understand that you'd need to employ someone to empty... More

Absolutely loved walking around the country park. clean, the views are great but the only thing I would say is there are no bins of which we found on any of the walks and the cafe was really dirty, under staffed and I didn't even dare try the food. The picnic benches we saw as we walked round looked abit... More

We chose to live nearby partially because of Pitsford water and the country park. The park can be busy at weekends and the track around the lake can at peak times be busy with walkers, runners, cyclists and dog walkers but otherwise it's good The cafe is ok but could be better, the bike shop is excellent especially for bike...

If you would like a coffee at the end of your walk prepare for a long wait! It took 30 minutes to get served! I waited outside while my partner went to get coffees & I couldn't believe how long it took! The queue extended to the door at one point & dogs were howling outside because they thought their...

I particularly wanted to comment on the café today as I notice that previous contributors have been quite critical. On entering, it wasn't busy so no long wait , the whole place was good on the eye. The display of food was excellent. Lovely selection of cakes on display looking very appetising, with no look of being sat there all... More

Stunning scenery. Lots of wildlife, especially birds, Rangers on site.Great children's play area! Cycle hire is great fun! Extra Car parking available on busy days. Various activities held here throughout the year - last weeks was a brilliant Halloween trail for kids! We love an early morning walk here too and it's great to bring friends and family over. Cafe...

Lovely venue and event for the Northamptonshire Day, it was such a pity the Cafe wasn't prepared for the number of people, queued half an hour in the cold (queue was outside when we joined it) and paid too much for 2 cappuccinos that didn't even taste of coffee, toast was still white, plus average chips, layout of cafe not...
