Good crazy golf!
Sep 2020
Crazy golf is small number of holes but thought it was still reasonable for the price we paid. Definitely a good activity to do whilst in Ambleside!

Very Good Mini Golf Course
Oct 2019 • Couples
We visited Ambleside and we were pleasantly surprised to find the mini golf course in this location. It does need a bit of a upgrade but I found the course fun and enjoyable to play on.

Great Ice Cream Thunder & Lightening.
Sep 2019 • Couples
While sitting in the white platt’s recreation ground, we had some lovely ice cream from the Waffle Cone. The Thunder & Lightening was great. Sit and enjoy, watch as they make a mess of the crazy golf.

Needs revamping
Aug 2019 • Family
For the price, it's ok. It is impossible due to the tired course. We have come every year for the past 20 years. They have placed a few extra pieces of stone which is loose to make the course harder. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Unless they maintain the course and spend some money on it, then it was probably my last visit.

Long grass, needs a bit more care.
Aug 2019 • Friends
Visited in August with family and played pitch and putt and bowls. Come here every year and always enjoy it. Unfortunately this year the grass was very long which spoiled the pitch and putt a bit. With a bit of maintenance we are sure it will be back to its best!

Miserable!
Jul 2019 • Family
Whilst waiting for ice cream, we saw the seller refuse to fill a walkers water bottle. With no public water stops, I find this attitude offensive. They were not busy, we were the only people there
Our ice cream portions were small and expensive compared to the exact same ice creams we had yesterday in Bowness. Usually, to change from a wafer to waffle cone is about 20p, if not nothing. It was another pound here!! No more ice cream either.
Avoid. Walk up the road a little further for better service and more value for your money.

Nice way to break up the day. Well priced
Jul 2019 • Friends
Nice little area to break up the day.

£4 per person to play crazy golf. Wouldn’t have travelled for this, but a pretty area, safe for children and families to enjoy a quick game of golf if already in Ambleside for the day.

The course wasn’t what I’d describe as “crazy”, and some surfaces were quite uneven, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Well priced. What you expect for the price.

Not value for money Crazy Golf
Jul 2019 • Family
We did crazy golf. I have never seen a blander 9 hole course - no windmills, no moving monkeys, gutters with so much muck the ball gets stuck and incredibly unimaginative designs. We lasted only 13 minutes for the round and were the only people there so thought we'd do another round given the cost and as soon as we putted our first shot, the hut man appeared from nowwhere and told us it was only round. Not value for money. I could have bought 10 sausage rolls from Greggs for that.

Pitch and Putt
May 2019 • Friends
The sun was shining, we had just had a light lunch, and fancied a bit of laugh. Only 2 of the 6 of us had ever really hit a ball before, but the holes are all less than 100 yards, with very few obstacles. Only £4.50 each for 9 holes. Clubs are a bit dodgy, and greens are not for the purist, but we had a good time. Luckily, we were the only ones playing, so we could take as much time as we wanted. Good fun (until our novice mate won!!!)

Nice little area to relax in the sun
Apr 2019 • Family
It is a very nice use of a small area with activities such as tennis, boules, pitch n putt/putting/crazy golf and enjoy an ice cream whilst your kids play on the bouncy slide or park area, great way to pass the day by.
