Love coming to Willen even on a cold day. Beautiful surroundings, lovely little cafe and loads for kids to do. First time at Treetop Extreme and my son loved it (bit scary tho!)

Simply fab! The children loved all the activities around the lake and the walk in the sunshine was so peaceful. We Will definitely go back in the summer.

Hello It is only accessible by bus or car. Unfortunately train station is 7 min drive away. You don’t have to pay any amount to enter. Only parking if using a car. Excellent area for families.
