Attraction Information

Talkin Tarn Country Park is a whopping 165 acre site rich in fairytale like mature woodland and gentle meadows, all surrounding a glacial lake (the titular Tarn, in local vernacular) with the stunning Pennine Hills as a the family photo backdrop ever!

The Tarn has a 1.3 mile circular path that is ideal for a gentle stroll. This path is hard surfaced and perfect for wheel and push chairs, plus there are also 3 way marked trails of varying lengths from 1.5km to 3.5km starting from the car park .

A permanent family fun orienteering course and a charming numeracy trail are available to guide yourselves around. For those with other kids along, the park is an ideal location to bring your class or youth group for a day of environmental education activities. Equipment can be borrowed from the site office and the staff will be happy to help give you some ideas for activities.

A note for dog owners: they get a fair amount of that blue-green algae one hears about on their waterways, definitely best to keep the hound on a leash and not let them into or around the water. It'll keep your car nicer too!

It's close to the historic market town of Brampton too, which is a lovely place for family exploration.
