We went to the lake earlier and enjoyed a long walk around the lake, a go in the canoes, picnic and an ice cream. There is also a cheap pub, a 'go-ape' style climbing zone and lots of picnic benches. When the weather is good this is a very good place to bring your kids, when we went there was... More

Having booked-in to the Premier Inn we went to the Pub/Restaurant for lunch. We found the service to be good and the food to be excellent value for money with good sized portions. We will use this restaurant again!

I visited to cycle around and was impressed with the beauty of the lake. Willen is divided into two separate lakes, one for fun and one for nature. The fun one had some training for waterski going on and the other was nicely set apart and was very pretty.

Vistied on a bank holiday, but despite all the people, there were very quiet areas around the lake to enjoy a quiet walk, and then other areas where there were lots of things for children to do. The place seems to be well maintained and clean. The seemingly endless footpaths in this area allows one to wander around the area... More

Went for a ride around the lake with a friend. The paths around the lake are great, clean and we'll kept. The area around the pub is busy and hard to bike easily around, but that was expected. It's a great place to bike and enjoy a great view.

The south Lake takes around an hour and twenty minutes to walk around and the north lake about 45 minutes. There is a bird hide on the... More
