Dear Gransnetters, Northamptonshire is a large county so it is difficult to find 'places to go' and activities for children in all areas of the country and not just the main towns. If anyone has a favourite place they love to take their grandchildren during the holidays, please let me know so I can add the details to Northamptonshire listings. Would also love to list local fetes, festivals and community events There must be hundreds out there who would like some free publicity.
We like Stanwick Lakes. Large wooden play area with sand and water, lots of space, children's nature walk, lovely cafe, caters for vegetarian and small amount of GF. Ircheater Park have themed days and weekends. Open all year lots of space for running around and games. Signposted walks. Lovely cafe. Childrens play area with swings slides etc.
