Large carpark, wonderful enterance and walking routes. The boathouse is a must and the gardens in Spring look fabulous. Also lots going on for familys and children to get involved in which is lovely.

We have been visiting Winkworth since the children were small and will continue when the grandchildren arrive next year. Always beautiful sights to enjoy especially in autumn

Enjoyed an afternoon walking thru the woods and around the lake. We are definitely going to visit again. The only negative was we chose to go on a Sunday morning and the park was enormously popular.

Even on an autumn’s day when footfall is higher than normal, you can still find a quiet path to walk down. Kids love it with trees to climb on and leaves to kick up whilst they walk. We have a dog which had to be...More

Wonderful colourful Winkworth is amazing autumn time! Sun was shining, sat on the bench by the boathouse and admired the beauty of nature!

That's a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, without a reference to the speed of walking. I remember it as about 500m, so less than 5 minutes walking for me walking quickly or 10 minutes at a dawdle looking... More

Not really playgrounds but there are some areas around the cafe that would be good for kids to play safely.
