Aminety has lost a lot of appeal for families and very limited views of lake, no access to water edge.
Sep 2021 • Family
The park as a couple of walks but very restricted views over the lake. No access to waters edge as all fenced off for anglers.
Although a pleasant walk around very little to see due to this restriction. Very limited area for picnics by car park again very restricted view of lake, also in some parts there was a distinct smell from the doggie waste bin.
This place has lost a lot of appeal due to the way in which the view is so restricted, in the past children would be seen playing on the waters edge but no longer.

No access to water, but a popular and scenic spot for a walk. Car park only 50p for 4 hours. Swans wander around on the shore.

Kayaking party
Aug 2021 • Friends
Fantastic kayaking party for my sons 13th Party! All the boys had the best time kayaking today. The instructor was brilliant with the boys and made the event safe and lots of fun! Changing facilities and lockers to put phones etc in.
Highly recommend and will definitely be returning to do more water activities in the future.

A local gem
Jul 2021 • Couples
Staying in the area and was looking for watersport hire for the rest of the family... unfortunately they were fully booked, but for a walk around the lake and nature trail, plus the excellent little cafe there it hit the nail right on the head and even had a section of the lake designated for dog swimming near the carpark too which was a bonus!!

Relaxing Walk
Apr 2021 • Couples
We were travelling south on the M6 and took a diversion due to some traffic issues. We were passing through Congleton and noticed the sign to Astbury Mere.
There was a good size carpark with plenty of spaces even on a busy Saturday morning. The charge for car parking was 50p for four hours. The toilets were open but when we visited, in early May, the café and visitors centre were closed.
We enjoyed a very relaxing pleasant walk around the lake on a wide flat path before resuming our journey.

Pleasant surroundings
May 2021 • Couples
In the area on holiday we visited a few times for a walk. Very pleasant surroundings great path to walk on. Everyone we met socially distanced. How nice that dogs have to be on a lead & owners that abide by it.

A pleasant 1-hour walk
May 2021
Loved the mere. The circular walk around the mere offers fantastic views and is truly relaxing. There is a coffee shop in the main car park if you need refreshement and a number of longer trails if you have more time.
