I particularly wanted to comment on the café today as I notice that previous contributors have been quite critical. On entering, it wasn't busy so no long wait , the whole place was good on the eye. The display of food was excellent. Lovely selection of cakes on display looking very appetising, with no look of being sat there all... More

Stunning scenery. Lots of wildlife, especially birds, Rangers on site.Great children's play area! Cycle hire is great fun! Extra Car parking available on busy days. Various activities held here throughout the year - last weeks was a brilliant Halloween trail for kids! We love an early morning walk here too and it's great to bring friends and family over. Cafe...

Lovely venue and event for the Northamptonshire Day, it was such a pity the Cafe wasn't prepared for the number of people, queued half an hour in the cold (queue was outside when we joined it) and paid too much for 2 cappuccinos that didn't even taste of coffee, toast was still white, plus average chips, layout of cafe not...

We are staying at Sedgebrook Hotel and looked on the internet things to do. We decided to come to the park and completed an hour walk around. I have to say some of the spots you can stop off and sit to listen to nature are really good. Really enjoyed it just wish some of the construction areas where completed..

The trail was really nice, my children enjoyed this. I still think that the council are taking the mick a little with £3 parking considering the toilets were pretty grim and looked like they required a deep clean, plus it cost me £7.95 for 3 ice creams in the willow shop. Even the lady serving me said she thought they... More

We hadn't been to Brixworth Country park for a few years, but decided to return for a picnic with our two children. There were benches to sit at to eat, but the table was so far away from the benches that our 6 year old daughter couldn't reach it (even I struggled). We went on the one hour walk to... More

Great day out, we biked the 7 miles track which took about 1:30 minutes including a lunch stop. Was very nice- there's benches about here and there. Toilets are only located at the cafe tho which could be an issue for some if walking it. It was easy to park and the play area was great. Cafe was clean.

Very clean park with nice walks and traditional rides. Parking is £3 and can be paid on a card or cash. Coffee shop with limited inside seating but plenty outside. There is a cycle shop that will hire bikes for all ages. Lovely walks and cycles rides around the reservoir. Nice day out when sunny.

We visit here quite regularly to excercise our dog and ride around the lake, the park has improved over the years with the adventure playground a firm favourite with our son. The cafe is always busy and closes early but the food is usually good there.

We went primarily to use our bikes and cycle round Pitsford however right from start we were disappointed ,poor signage ,no available maps and the cycle path surface was dreadful , poor loose surface in places and pot holes that had been filled with 2 -3inch loose aggregate making it quite dangerous if you went over it with your bike....
