“Little Gem”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We live not far from Westport lake and love to come down whatever the weather. Westport Lake is a welcome break from the main towns of Stoke-On-Trent, a little gem tucked away. The walk around is pleasant with choice of a small lake or large lake. The park for the kids is brill though does get busy on better weather days, which is to be expected.

I would ask for more seating on the balcony of the visitor centre to cater for the many dog walkers on busy days, as we had to go away not finding a seat. The visitor centre is a welcome addition with fairly priced products.

The wildlife is amazing here if you take the time to look around, frogs, newts, birds even an ADDER!!

“A good start point for many pleasant walks.”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Westport lake is an excellent area for all the family, with a great visitor centre which overlooks the lake and serves snacks and drinks which are great value for money. From Westport lake there are many walks to undertake which bring in many Heritage sites and points of interest. It is a great place to visit.

“Very Good Centre”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

I have been to the visitor centre many a time and found the food good and cheap. But recently some of the staff that serve you have come increasingly rude you ask them in a pleasant and polite manner which I was brought up to do.What do you get back is them demanding the money of you with out a please or thank you. Is it me or have people lost the virtue of politeness but overall it is still worth a visit to the centre a walk around the lake what ever the weather.
