Fabulous
Dec 2020
Over the years we have spent many a happy hour here. There is a great play area and lovely areas for adults as well. The café is relaxing and the terrace has lovely views. It is a great place to walk, relax and think. One morning in early winter we couldn't sleep so we went for a walk. it was bathed in frost and looked magical.

Nice Little Park
May 2021
Nice little park to walk around in. Several ponds and the Nene river runs along the border of the park. Watch for Kingfishers along the river. Park has a small restaurant, toilet block and two bird watcher hides. Bring a picnic. Also has a playground for the kiddies. Park is also a popular location for local fishermen. If you visit here also go walk through Oundle.

Welcome distraction from a family funeral
Apr 2021 • Family
We were staying at Lower Farm for a funeral and brought children and grandchildren to run off steam on a very pleasant sunny Friday morning.
Cafe serving excellent food and drinks great walks for the dogs and everyone of all ages enjoyed the zip wire.
A great fun way to pass three hours or so

Lovely kids play area
Oct 2020 • Family
The play area was fantastic, suitable for all ages, inc adult.

There is a small play area next to cafe, which perfect for family trip with kids. food and drink are meet everage quality.

Not too much parking space (especially busy during the weekend), and the card reader incredibly slow when you trying to get parking payment done. 4 hours parking cost £3.20, you can pay more if you need stay more than 4 hours.

No trash bin.

It is easy to find via Google map.

Haven't try the baby changing facilities yet, will share the experience once tried.

Aug 2020 • Family
We visit Barnwell regularly and would highly recommend it!
- Beautiful and well maintained park
- Lovely cafe with great hot chocolate!
- Excellent gated park with a great range of climbing and play equipment for all ages. We love the zip wire in particular!
- Lovely little gated in toddler park that you can sit directly outside of whilst the little ones play (can be seen wherever they go!)
- Great open park right outside the cafe with a lovely open grass area for picnics too!
- Lots of benches around the park on walk ways
- Parking is good value for money.
- Two options For walking routes, one slightly shorter than the other.

Nice walks and good play area for kids
Aug 2020 • Family
Well maintained country park on the outskirts of Oundle with some nice walks around the lakes and plenty of opportunities to feed the ducks for little ones. Small cafe but a good sized play area is a post walk incentive. Car park is pricy for a short visit though

Small country park with more emphasis on park than country
May 2020
This is a very small country park. It is lush, green and pleasant with the river to one side and a number of small lakes. Although it doe encourage some wildlife this is definitely a leisure park for kids, cyclists, anglers and picnickers and feels more like a municipal green space than a rural spot. Entry is free. I had a very pleasant walk and, if I lived in Oundle, I'd be a frequent visitor but it's not really worth a special trip from elsewhere.

Great for a walk... but small.
Mar 2020 • Couples
We visited here to walk the dog and it was great. Beautiful surroundings, just a little small, which of course is no fault of their own. Cafe food was nice. Dogs off leads too. Nice walk into Oundle. Definitely recommend for a short stroll.
