Brockhole is a fun day out for all ages there is a cafe, playground, walks round the area and a lake with boats that stop at Brockhole, and go to other places. It has good facilities including a shop, toilets, disabled access and a cafe. Brockhole is free but parking costs. No equipment is needed for anything unless you bring your own lunch. I really enjoyed Brockhole we went on a walk around the area and ate lunch in the cafe it was yummy! We also went to the park, and at the end we had an ice cream. I would love to go again sometime. I wish we went on a boat as well! The main attraction in Windermere is the lake but that's part of Brockhole.

It is a very good place with great views of the hills near by. It is a perfect place go when it is a sunny day there is lots to do such as: walks, play, learn and just enjoy the day.
You can go at any age. There is a cafe, toilets, a shop and disabled access to most of the area. You only have to pay for the car parking, you don't have to pay to get in to the house or grounds. You will need trainers but in my opinion anything with hard soles and toe protection would be good. We went to the exhibition in the house and after that we had lunch. We also went to the shop which is very good. After a while we went to the ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND! My favourite part was when we went on the playground. There is the lake near by and lots of grassy areas which would be a great place to have a picnic.

It is fun, big and exciting. You can ride a bike, go for a walk by the lake or go to the adventure playground. The adventure playground is my favourite place because I can climb, run around and go down the big slide.

It is free of charge and there is a cafe, where you can buy ice cream. You can take the ferry and go for a trip around Lake Windermere.

Brockhole Visitor Centre is a popular place for families and it is very busy during the school holidays. 5 Stars
