Our woodland play area is the ideal place to burn off some energy and is perfect for all ages. Find our play area in the Turning Yard, behind the main visitor toilet facilities.

If you want to explore the wider park which not head to the Cycle Hub and pick up a bike, and get out and about across 20 miles of trails and tracks.

If you'd prefer a steadier tour of the park, why not set off on the beautiful lakeside walk, finding spaces to sit and unwind surrounded by the surpentine lake. Our takeaway Lake Brew van can be found by Hardwick village, as well as toilet facilities.

Rest and recharge

Our Turning Yard cafe serves a wider selection of food to enjoy indoors or to takeaway and enjoy by the lake.

Before heading home, pick up a treat from the Laundry Yard Shop, or even a new plant for the garden.
