A beautiful spot for a walk in a country park devoid of playground equipment and fast food! (all fine in the right context!) Multiple habitats including grassland, woodland and a lake occupied by swans and various ducks. Birdsong accompanies you as you walk on the pathways (or venture off them to explore!) which enable you to explore this lovely space.... More

I went on a school activity afternoon which was very well run and held the children's interest throughout. Also a great place for dog walkers, families with young children - in fact, everyone. Well sign-posted routes.

Lovely walk around the lake, also plenty of woodland walks, I take the dog at least once a week. No cafe on site but Stanton Hotel next door with direct access from the park. Very large car park. Definately worth a visit.

Have been several times over the last few months. It's a quiet and pleasant place to walk. Plenty of car parking. Very muddy in places. Not much there though.

Just a short distance on the outskirts of Swindon, Stanton park has a range of pleasant walks, a lake, apothecary/herb garden and a small childrens visitor centre. A nice place to spend an afternoon.

Lovely walks through woodlands and a lake, great for dog walkers or ramblers. If you fancy a drink or cream tea Stanton House is near by.

Peaceful-Quiet and relaxing is the best way to describe Stanton park, a nice place to walk or sit by the lake, mature woodlands to explore with good paths many suitable for wheelchairs.

Located between Swindon and Highworth near the Honda plant. The park consists of a couple of miles of well maintained pathways that meander around a central lake through old forests. Things to see include the Folly, Giant Redwood tree, Birds and bats galore, and a rangers house converted from an old farm house which includes a discovery room for kids.... More

Pleasant place 2 go for a medium sized dog walk, usually busy during the summer, better when the tourist season has finished. Dogs can cool off at the bottom of the waterfall. Check out the bee keeping area, always interesting.
