We live near High lodge and love it so much. It makes for a great day out, the kids love and so do we. We usually take a picnic and love the play areas.

Just moved to the area and took my family to High lodge at the weekend. What a great place so much to do - the kids loved it. Would definitely recommend it for a good value family day out

Excellent play areas and musical activities on the short trail. Stick Man trail is OK but really just a few signs plus the activities in the pack - would be nice to have some carvings like the others around from previous events. However, the cafe is a letdown. Overpriced, and apparently understaffed today so there were no trays, a shortage of crockery, and very slow service. The food could be so much more imaginative than the current sea of beige (macaroni cheese with chips?!).
