Lovely spot

what an interesting place, as long as the weather is good. Went there with our 2-year old grandson who enjoyed seeing the sheep and birds. Very nice cafe for coffee and cake

A great place for all, we took 3 grandsons, 9,7,4 and armed them all with a small pair of binoculars book and pencil and they had great fun looking at the birds and checking them against the board of visiting birds. They had a great time walking round the grounds and looking at all the various sets laid out in... More

I love college lake. It's such a peaceful place and a beautiful walk with so much nature to see. Only criticism I would have is that there's one part of the walk that involves stairs, so it makes it quite difficult with prams. Lovely though

Our school had a fantastic school trip to College Lake. We were very well looked after by Claire and Catherine when we visited with our year ones and year twos. The content of the activities was age appropriate and proffessionally delivered. The ladies were all extremely patient with all of the children and knowledgeable about their field. The pond dipping... More

Have visited this BBO Wildlife Trust site several times before - it seems to offer something different every season. This time the highlights were swifts and martins swooping overhead, smooth newts, frogs & toads - plus several chicks including oystercatcher & redshank waders plus goslings ... And a Ross's goose. Add to this great views of the Aylesbury peregrine chicks... More

A great place for a walk, or to see whats going on in nature, at any time of the year. College Lakes attracts many migrant bids and the wildlife always seems to be busy. The Visitor Centre is a well laid out modern building, the staff are helpful and there is tea and cake at the end of the walk.... More

I took my Year 2 class of 29 6/7 year olds to College Lake in May as part of our topic 'Into The Wild' and 'Animals and Habitats'. The entire trip was incredibly efficient and well organised from the start, and the staff are all so enthusiastic and great with the kids. There is a such a fantastic range of... More
