It's a very nice and relaxing atmosphere , the lake looks absolutely beautiful with all the ducks and the duck shaped boats... We went on a very hot summer day and the gentle cool breeze feels amazing. The park is very entertaining for the kids with lots of different kind of swings, rides and slides... Even though it was busy,... More

Went for a 2 hour watersports session followed by an authroised BBQ for a large group of people. Unable to move car onto BBQ site to assist with decamp of BBQ and hence received £80 parking fine for being 20 minutes over on parking time. I would recommend visiting somewhere else where parking isn't such a money making venture.

We hired a dragon (or as the kids named it, 'Loch Ness Monster') pedalo for half an hour. The staff who kitted us up with life jackets were really friendly and helpful - and great with the kids. The trip we took around the lake was great fun. A great way to spend half an hour (or an hour if... More

We had a wonderful time at Willen lake with friends and family. The atmosphere was fantastic. We stayed at the premiere inn on site which was convenient when having kids with you. Definitely doing it again next year.

An amazing place for outdoor activities and it seems that this is a centre for running, walking, water skiing, sailing etc as well as a pleasant park for sitting and taking in the environment.

Met my buddy here at 8pm for a walk around the lake, parked in the car park. Had a discussion about parking and whether we would need to pay, decided after 8 would be free. WRONG! got a ticket each at £80! Don't get caught out! The actual lake is beautiful and there is plenty of wildlife to enjoy. Popular... More

We went to Zorb Wars and while there we took a lovely long walk round the lake, it was just so beautiful. Plenty of places you can sit and just watch the world go by or an awful lot of activities you can take part in. You really could spend an enjoyable weekend here
