Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Stroll through this old Victorian pleasure garden and marvel at the range of habitats. The lake is a shady oasis and the valley swoops down to the Brockhill stream, teeming with life. The park offers fantastic views to the English Channel.

Brockhill is a very nicely laid out country park near Sandling Train Station, a few minutes off junction 11 of the M20. It has a cafe, children's play area, large pond and country walks.
The pond is covered in a blanket of tiny green leaves which is quite unpleasant to see, but it doesn't stay there forever.
There is a daily parking fee of £1.50 during the week and £2 at weekends.

Living locally I cannot believe we haven't visited here before! We popped down a few weeks back to find it and came back. We took a picnic too. The play park is a fantastic first stop off for children then we walked round the lake. There is lots of info on the nature that surrounds the park, we even saw a heron in the trees. We are going to get our walking shoes on and do the longer route next time. We stopped off at the cafe for coffee and ice cream and a first for my dairy intolerant child...dairy free ice cream! He was so chuffed. The menu is great for vegetarians and gluten free, which I am. We are coming back this week after school for tea! Great place 10/10

We live locally to the Brockhill park and use it alot. It has a lovely cafe that serves nice vegetarian food, not being a vegetarian I wouldn't normally eat at a vegetarian restaurant but the food is of good quality and reasonably priced. The play area is good and keeps the kids busy and there is a really nice walk around a pond with interesting panels about the insects and animals in the park. All in all a very good place to visit with family and friends.

Such a great location for a day out or just a quick walk. We are lucky enough to live close by and often walk to the park and enjoy a stroll through the valley and round the lake. They often have open days with activities laid on for children which are always brilliant and run by enthusiastic staff and volunteers. The cafe there is ace - brilliant vegetarian food, really reasonably priced - definitely worth a try. Go visit and get some fresh air!

Visited today and was amazed by the peaceful tranquility of the walks on offer, amazing!! People picnicking, children running and climbing, people rambling, photographers, wildlife observers and those who simply wanted to sun themselves in one of the many beautiful locations on offer. Parking cheap, cafe staffed by lovely, friendly people who charge reasonable prices and a wonderful play area that my son adored! Well worth a visit.
