A great place to visit and also learn about our natural surroundings... Oh and also get great home cooked value for money food. In the summer and at weekends Whisby can be quite busy but on a tuesday during term time the place is absolute heaven. Great access to the visitor centre for my disabled mother. Also electric mobility scooters... More

Oh dear, this place has gone downhill. It's alright if you want a walk round but don't bother with the cafe. The menu is limited to say the least, if your idea of 'specials' is Sunday left overs re-worked or sausage beans and chips then you might like it. Cleanliness is not up to scratch and I'm not keen on... More

We visited this place at the end of a busy day and it was a wonderful way of winding down walking around the lakes. The walks varied in length and time we chose a 1.3 mile work that took us 35 minutes and heard the nightingales sing magic!

I visited for the first time in July along with my husband. After having read the reviews on trip advisor I had high hopes for this place. However when we visited a map in the visitor centre advised that due to work on the railway bridge there is no access to the park north of the railway line. This cuts... More
