There is no parking, the lane is narrow in parts so if you are parking please park respectfully. I parked in the village opposite the Snooty Fox pub and we walked through the village to the park. It’s a 10 minute drive from Kettering.

🍴 Facilities

No toilets. A good amount of tables and benches around perfect for picnics in the summer. They even have BBQs! 


🚜 Activities

Positioned in rolling countryside it was lovely seeing the horses trotting past. There seems to be many walks around the area and we took a route behind the pocket park across the field to a bridge with a beautiful fast flowing stream. Perfect for Pooh sticks! I imagine in the summer this is a lovely spot for a paddle. I think that’s what I liked so much by it. Even at the park itself there is an area behind the equipment which looked great for den building.  For play equipment there are 2 baby swings and 2 older swings. A roundabout which seats 4 and can reach some epic speeds!  There is a small climbing frame, slide and some sit on bouncy thingys!  There is a fantastic wooden climbing frame across 2 levels which has a climbing wall, monkey bars, ladders and slides. It was perfect for a 2 year old to climb but also challenging enough for my 5 year old.  Football pitch with two goals.  Although it isn’t a paved park they have had 2 gates of entry fitted one steps and another a ramp for pushchairs and wheelchair users which I thought was very thoughtful.


🌻 Mother tripper tips

Take wellies for now the walk around the park is muddy. Please be respectful of the equipment it’s a very pretty park and after a quick Google it is all maintained by the villagers. I have tried to find a donation page for it but haven’t found one yet. Strictly NO dogs inside the park.
