Came here with friends kids. Maybe we should of gone on a dry day. But cafe came in handy. Plus you can walk down to lake. Really nice views

Nice day out, expensive to park but free attraction. Looking forward to the new playarea in summer. Cafe was nice but expensive.

Idyllic setting. Peaceful. Good boat links to other towns and villages.

We love Brockhole and had been regular visitors for many years. But parking (or lack of it) keeps us away now. It’s happened too many times where we’ve travelled an hour’s deive with 3 young children in the back of the car, only to be turned away.

This was such a nice place and I definitely recommend. We have driven past this place many times on the way to walks in the lakes and have never really thought about going in. We ventured in for the Easter trail the other day and were pleasantly surprised about the amount and quality of activities. We will definitely be going again in summer.

Have been to Brickhole pretty much every time we have been to the Lake District. And this year it has been modernised, making it even better. Made for families, and perfect for couples

Fantastic facilities for families. Brave the cave is really well thought through. A big thankyou to Jasmine who was awesome.

Good for a range of ages but none are excluded. Very busy at weekends and based round a veriaty of activities I'm retired so I go midweek.

Lovely playground and lake shore walk. Everything else costs lots of money, as does the parking.

Great activities for the whole family, alternatively if your waiting for family or friends to complete there chosen adventure just simply strole around the beautiful grounds, dog friendly, gift shop, ice creams light bites etc...or even take your own picnic.

Really fun. Many options to spend a good chunk of a day. Quite pricey.

Great day out Treetops is well worth it even for those not great with heights.

Super fun for all the family. Free play park for 7 and under. More adventurous stuff for older kids and adults. Reasonable prices for what you get to do. You may want to look ahead at whats on and booking online is recommended in holiday times to avoid disappointment.

Great place... lots to do at the site for families with the various activity centres and play areas. Also a nice walk down to the lake for a paddle (or swim) and picnic at the waters edge

Fantastic place to visit with the family. All-sorts to do, or even just nice for a walk and a picnic. Free entry and on a bus route if not driving. Otherwise carpark is about £6 to park for a good few hours.
