Lovely country park. Plenty of open space, wildlife on the lake. Convenient to the centre of Lancashire towns.

Over the years I and my family have visited the country park and it's surroundings. I would have given it a 5 star rating for the pleasure we have had but maybe a more interesting visitor center or cafe would be welcome.

Staff are remarkably friendly and helpful. We were made feel very comfortable as soon as we got here. Great atmosphere and fantastic food and drinks. Wasn't a nice day that we got here on but it was bliss being here all the same. Would recommend to anyone as this was a delightful trip.

Pennington Flash is just a beautiful, beautiful park. Lovely for a walk on a warm sunny day. Although quite a lot of people visit it when the weather is nice, it's still peaceful as it is huge so you can walk away from the crowds. There is also an area for picnics, lovely.
