THE place if you like to take mornings or evening walks. The entire surrounding is serene and apt for a silent walk. You can walk around the whole lake and not feel tired watching the birds. There are also some adventure activities around and not to miss the pubs serving breakfast in the morning I love this place

If you are looking for a peaceful and interesting walk it doesn't get much better than this. A walk around Willen lake on a lovely day really relieves the stress levels. That of course is the North lake rather than the south lake. The north lake is given over to nature and has lots of birds and animals to look... More

The lake itself offers ducks to feed, ice cream and restaurants along with parks for the kids. Adults or older teenagers can hire boats or kayaks, play in the adventure park or just... More

At this point we found out the (older) play park area was completely closed for a refurb, so we walked round to the hire boats...to... More

A few years ago we walked around the south lake at Willen with our dog and the dog did what dogs do. Being responsible dog owners we were prepared and cleaned up. Not surprisingly we looked for a doggy do dah bin to place the package in. Believe it or not, around the the whole of the south lake (about... More

Lovely on a warm day for a leisurely walk. Can get busy around the park, but once you start walking there are plenty of quiet places if you want peace and quiet. Various different routes too. Ideal for children to walk, run, scooter and cycle . A selection of eating and drinking options or you can picnic. Have to pay... More
