We visited Willen Lake with friends over from America. It was a stunning day weather wise and the place seemed to be hopping with activity. We wandered around the outside of the lake where the Wayfarer and water activity centre was and decided to take a look at the fun fair which was on for the school holidays. It appears... More

I love Willen Lake for their water sports activities and all the things for children. I myself was once a child frolicking around in the kids areas. The restaurant is pretty ok but it's always a great place on a hot summer day. Packed with people walking their dogs. Great atmosphere. Love!

We went to Willen lake on a hot sunny day. The views were great and although there was a fun fair that day, it was still a peaceful place to be. There are lots of ducks and swans in the lake. Plenty of activities to do on the lake but you need to get there early or give yourself plenty... More

Have visited Willen Lake twice now, both with work colleagues and service users ( I'm a learning disability support worker), the place is great for taking a stroll, they have plenty of parking and reasonable charges, the lake itself is beautiful, there are lots of waterfowl there, swans, geese and ducks which are always on the lookout for food dropped!...

Plenty of parking available and for a reasonable price. Loads of room for picnics & has bbq areas. Wonderful walk around the lake however once you leave the main area there are no bins around the whole lake which is stupid as there are loads of signs saying don't throw rubbish. There aren't many toilets all of which are at... More
