Stanwick Lakes stretch across 750 acres in Nene Valley, Northamptonshire. The six lakes towards the south-western end of the park are available for fishing by day or night ticket, and is suitable for a range of ages and experience levels.
There are over 11 km (7 mi) of wheelchair-accessible footpaths running across the site, providing plenty of opportunities for walkers of all ages and abilities to view the wildlife and scenery in the area. There’s also a heritage trail which tells the history of the site from Neolithic to Mediaeval times. Horse riding is available along the former railway line, a distance of around 9.6 km (6 mi) from Irthingborough to Thrapston – a permit is necessary, however.
Cycle paths and bike hire are available; there is also an adventure playground and a bird hide with a feeding station to view the abundance of birdlife at Stanwick Lakes.
