Stanwick lakes is a great way to spend a full day.With excellent playground facilities, various nature walking trails and an area for barbeques/picnics,the lakes is without doubt Northamptonshires finest.....i highly recommend the adventure trail....before taking the outstanding 8 mile rail walk to Thrapston.Visited 18th March 2017.

A nice place to come to but make sure you plan to stay for a while to get your monies worth for the parking ticket. I like it, clean, good paths and a lot for children to do if you have families.

Great outdoor facility which gets very muddy after rains. Car parking steep at £3.50 for an outdoor facility in the countryside. I was in a 10k and husband had to pay as well for parking.
