There is loads here to do, very impressed a very affordable splash park for young children and my older boys did the inflatable course on the lake. There was a fairground when we visited which was alot of fun. A very good facility.

Fab park with so much to do and lovely walk round!
We hired pedelos we paid for the basic one at £18 for 60 mins but if u want a themed one like a dragon or car or flamingo prepare to pay £25 for the pleasure lol

We then visited the splash park! This is £2 for 30 mins so we paid £4 and it was fab! Well run , clean and plenty of places to sit,
My one grumble is the wasps/bees! I went to whipsnade zoo recently and they had traps all over the place and no issues with buzzing around u all the time but at the splash park little lady spent 60 mins playing and spent around 40 mins fending off the yellow and black buzzers other than that a great hour well spent

Hi Sarah, thank you for your 5 star review of Willen Lake. We are pleased you and your daughter had a good day at the lake and enjoyed the pedelos and Splash 'n' Play. We have been working on the bee situation and have had all of the nests removed from around the Lake, we will now be looking into other options for the renaming bees. We hope to see you again soon.

We went to do the ski boarding at the wave and followed the post code given
Beware it’s the wrong car park if you can’t walkthrough over 1/2 mile to the attraction

After paying 2.50 in pay and display We then find we need to move the car to a different car park with different payment details
We had to pay again

RIP off Britain at its best

Thanks mk for spoiling the start to the day

Hi Steve, sorry to hear you had problems parking for the Wakeboarding Centre and went to the wrong car parks. On the Willen Lake website we clearly have information about our two car parks onsite - North and South Bay. It would be interesting to understand what car park information you were using and where you parked first? Many thanks

My two teenage children did the high ropes course and really enjoyed it. We just turned up and there was space - and the staff were really lovely and really helpful. Definitely to be recommended.

Willen Lake is lovely, with wide open spaces and plenty of opportunities to walk, ride a bike, play in the Splash park or simply enjoy an ice cream or pint. Willen provides everything to ensure a relaxed day out or even just an hour or so.

Friendly staff, reasonable prices and everyone there for a common purpose; to enjoy the outdoors make Willen at least one place to go this summer.
