The park and the walks are great, we have enjoyed visiting for many years with friends and family to walk or cycle.
My one complaint is how long it takes to get a coffee in the cafe. In common with other places the cafe is grossly understaffed with one poor person expected to do everything whilst other staff who are around see clueless. The same is true at other locations in the area. Put some on place to run the cafe effectively

A pleasant park and lake for walks and recreation. Expensive parking charge (minimum £3.50) for a short stay.

Had a fab cycle round the lake. Stopped for breakfast at the cafe. Only one visible menu which was right by the till so difficult to make choices. However bacon roll was excellent, good amount of bacon in a floury bap. Drinks were quickly served and had a pager to go to collect food.

Brixworth Country Park

We were staying in the area and good weather meant we wanted to get out and about. Brixworth country park is situated a few minutes drive from the village that gives it its name. Easy to find, if you know where you are going, for some reason it is very poorly signposted, just head south out of the village.

On our visit there was plenty of parking available, but it does seem somewhat limited as was filling up when we were leaving, cost is £3.20 for 4 hours.

The park itself is centred around Pitsford Water, a huge 2 part lake. There are planty of signed walks and cycle trails, with plenty of ‘off path’ trails, with cycles for hire from behind the cafe.

One fairly interesting thing is that Brixworth has no litter bins. So is it full of rubbish? Absolutely not. This stance seems to have worked with many signs urging visitors to take their litter home.

Birdwatchers can revell in the numerous waterfowl that visit.

We had a lovely, relaxing time for a few hours, and finished it off with an ice cream from the spacious cafe.

Enjoyed a pretty waymarked path through the woods and alongside the reservoir. There are three waymarked paths of different lengths and a cycle trail. There was a trial for children to follow as well, with things to find en route. Easily accessible paths. There is a ice cream shop and a place to get snacks.

A nice place to go for a relaxing walk

Even though it was a Misty cold day, it was a lovely walk. If you want a long walk I suggest you go round the lake as the 1.25km walk only took us 30 mins. It is quite muddy if it’s been wet so good shoes are needed. Parking is £3.60 but you can pay by card or coins. Cafe is also lovely and toilets are available. Covid restrictions are in place so it was a lovely afternoon.

Free motorcycle parking. Café was serving takeaway only - hot drinks, ice cream, snacks and bacon butties etc. Seats and tables outside café to consume purchases. Self monitoring of social distancing in toilets. Great place, me and my mate found a traditional bench seat on the side of the path/track round the lake for our picnic and a long chinwag enjoying the clear view over the water.
