It is a lovely place for a good day out. It is great for younger children and very safe. It is great for picnics, playing, going for a walk/walking dogs. There is a basic cafe, toilets and lots of parking - although the parking can be a bit expensive, especially on Bank Holidays. It is a beautiful spot for nature... More

Great place for children of all ages, great dog walks, picnic areas. Parking a little expensive but suppose it needs to be to keep equipment safe to use.

Great place for young children and safe. Cost of parking can be a bit high on Bank Holidays. Can get a yearly pass for parking though if you like it. Cafe is very good, but can get busy at peak times.

Lovely place, lots to do although £3.50 parking for about 2 hours seemed a bit steep ... small children can't always sustain a whole day which if they did would then make it worthwhile.

We visited Stanwick Lakes on Sunday. The car park was closed because it was full and cars were parked all around the roundabout. We ended up parking a 15 minute walk away but it was worth the effort. The scenery is stunning and there are plenty of walks around the lakes to enjoy. There are playgrounds for the children and... More
