The lake @ Stanton Lakes

We are pleased that so many clubs and societies meet at Stanton Lakes and enjoy the facilities on-site.  As the water is deep and unsupervised we don't allow the general public to use our lake but welcome visitors to our restaurant and touring caravan site to watch the wildlife and superb sunsets.

A walkabout ticket is available from the bar during opening hours to enable customers to take advantage of a stroll around the lake to enjoy the views.
