“Nice family day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Lovely day out, you have the beach, play park, cafe, toilets and plenty of picnic benches everywhere to enjoy a nice picnic. Only negative the beach isnt great when tide is in and mainly steps down to cafe so nightmare when you need a pushchair to get around.

“Great Day Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

A great day out for children and the older person the tide tends to go out a long way but it is ideal for exploring looking for crabs and such like if you walk further from the excellent cafe were you can get a good cup of coffee and a good selection of eats the tide does not go out so far so you can have a good swim. if you like walking there are excellent walks a d a nature area so all in all every one is catered for so go a long and have a great day

“A walk by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Situated on the Solent,this country park caters for everyone. On the sunny day we visited the site,families with children were enjoying the usual pleasures of the seaside together with the additional facility of games in the woods and parkland inland from the beach. We walked eastwards alongside the sea as far as the historic remains of WW2 D-day buildings before turning back along the upper path leading to low cliffs overlooking the visitor centre and cafe. The views over to the Isle of Wight are stunning , and added interest is in seeing large ships ,ferries and sailing boats entering and leaving Southampton Water in the east.A camera and binoculars are almost obligatory ! The only charge is a parking fee.

“Lovely place for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

What a lovely place Lepe is. We have been coming here for years and last weekend had a fab day with all the family (6 adults, 5 children including 4 month old Thomas and 3 dogs). Walk, picnic, paddle and play. Highly recommended. Even when it's busy, it never feels crowded.

“Great place to go with the family....and dog!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

I've been telling my family about this place I used to go 30 years ago. Got up this morning and decided to take them including the dog! Great walks, fantastic views of the solent and the isle of wight. There's a cafe if you haven't brought a picnic. Love this fantastic place! Car park is £5 for all day....a bargain.
