Great pathways to walk around and observe various wildlife across the lakes and riverside. The visitors centre has a cafe, gift shop and toilets.

Lots of signs saying keep dogs on lead, threatening fines, but no explanation why dogs must be kept on the lead... lovely walk, good accessibility for prams. Nice coffee/cake selection and good value. Went off peak so car park price not so expensive.

We loved it here. Great value for money, amazing play areas & large enough to not get too crowded. I imagine the large playarea gets very busy in the summer months. Would definitely recommend.

Set in the Nene River Valley, this large facility of walks, child friendly play areas and cafe restaurant is a must to visit. Very popular. Good ( pay) parking and all facilities. See web.

From memory, you have to pay for disabled parking. Parking charges vary according to the season, ranging from £2.50 to £5.50.
