I just love this place! It so easy to get to either by car, bus or train. The children run around all day with their boundless energy. There is an adventure playground which is good for kids, but I would get there early as it gets busy during the holidays. Not keen on tree top nets but that's just personal... More

"Sorry, that attraction is run by an outside company" Try explaining that to my 4 year old who is promised could go on The Treetop Nets only to find its closed, despite the fact it's advertised as open all year round.

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed not to be able to use the TreeTop Nets activity at Brockhole when you visited recently. As an outdoor activity it may well have been closed due to the weather we have been having, which has included several strong storms. If you would like to contact me I can get TreeTop Nets... More

This is a great free family park with plenty to see and do. The playground is great, with challenges for all ages.

Large park, as far as we could tell there was only one place to eat. Our lunch was fresh and very good.

Beautiful grounds with indoors activities too. There is a high rope course, like Go Ape, and in the summer, climbing walls and zip wires. Brockholes has a jetty and ferries stop in the season too. Good, large cafe, family friendly exhibitions and ample pay on exit parking.

Brockhole is a brilliant day out for all. There's something for all ages, kids will love it (even the little ones) and I'm sure that parents and grandparents will enjoy it too.

Went here on a recent visit to the lakes, it was a really nice place with beautiful views and would be fab in the summer. Sadly not everything was open when we went (would have loved to rent a boat or do the mini golf) but still had a nice wander around. Would recommend for couples and families.
