We always enjoy an opportunity to walk around the lakes and watch the wild life. Afterwards we use the cafe for mint tea and a snack. The staff are always attentive and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble.

This is a lovely place to stroll whether in summer or autumn walks - prices vary for the car park and beware to take change for this - it varies from peak times per hourly charge so look it up before you go. Nice res truant which sprawls across the lake with terrace and if your an avid bird watcher... More

An excellent and beautiful place to spend some peaceful time with your dog. On lead. The lakes are very well managed and there are play areas for young children. But this doesnt come for free of course, so check their website for parking charges throughout the year.

Loads space for the children to run about. Climbing frames for the smaller ones and an assault course for the bigger ones. Well worth a visit for the price of the car park fee.

Good food with wonderful outlook over lake.very entertaining for both adults and young children ,in fact something for everyone.Rangers in attendance at all time and constantly watching out everyone's safety.long country walks or bike riding around wonderful setting. Well worth the visit,can get rather busy during school holidays.

We have visited Stanwick Lakes many times, usually with the Grandchildren, where they can have a great time on all the apparatus, the walks are good, and well posted The visitor centre is well worth a visit.
