Service description:

Stanwick Lakes is a unique 750-acre countryside attraction and nature reserve in the heart of Northamptonshire's beautiful Nene Valley.

There are many things to do at Stanwick Lakes to keep the family happy for a full day. The central adventure playground with climbing tower, slides, and sand-and-water-play appeals to all age groups. Further afield, challenge yourself on the assault course or tackle the climbing rocks or zip wire on the adventure trail.

If it's peace and quiet you're after, there's a network of surfaced paths to lead you away from the hustle and bustle of the hub area to the wider site, where you can watch the wildlife undisturbed. The bird hides and feeding station provide the ideal opportunity to get close to the wildlife. Take in the beauty of the site during a picnic or admire the views from a lakeside seat in the café whilst sampling some delicious food and drink.

Discover more about the history of the site on the heritage trail, and view archaeological finds (including a section of a Roman floor mosaic) in the visitor centre.

The majority of the site’s facilities are wheelchair accessible, including the visitor centre, toilets, rangers’ log cabin, bird hide, the network of footpaths and cycle paths, and areas within the central adventure playground. A lift is situated in the café area to allow disabled visitors to access the mezzanine seating area (where the archaeological finds are kept).
