Stanwick Lakes

Stanwick Lakes is a unique 750 acre countryside attraction and nature reserve located in the heart of Northamptonshire’s Nene Valley. There are extensive and imaginative play areas. With open spaces and paths that families, walkers, cyclists and nature lovers can explore at leisure. The visitor centre, with cafe, shop and function space, hosts events like

  • Family celebrations
  • Business meetings
  • Team building and away days
  • Craft workshops

There are various areas available to hire including our Amphitheatre. This overlooks the Solstice Lake. Plus we have a large area of hardstanding right next to our car park. This is ideal for siting a marquee. With a fixed assault course, and adventure trail and specific den building and pond dipping sites there is plenty to keep visitors entertained making team-building events very easy to put together.

Our in-house catering team are able to support your event entirely. As a team we focus on shopping at local artisan suppliers. And limiting the food miles. We compost our food waste and use produce grown in our heritage garden throughout our menus. Additionally our team are happy to create menus from scratch.

Conservation at Stanwick Lakes

Stanwick Lakes is a protected site with three conservation ‘designations’ to our name. We are SSSi (A site of special scientific interest). We are protected under the Ramsar convention for the protection of overwintering wetland birds. It’s this designation that makes us as environmentally important as the polar ice caps!

All the income we generate through hire and events goes back into the upkeep and maintenance of this beautiful, special site. We welcome all visitors here to support us and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.

Stanwick Lakes is managed as a social enterprise by environmental charity, Rockingham Forest Trust
