The Tar Lakes are a great Slummy Mummy secret that we thought we'd share with you... situated near the Cogges estate [keep going on the Cogges road, past the houses on to the single track road heading towards Stanton Harcourt] There is a fab little car park on the left, with a gravel path that leads you across the road and round the lakes. Its quiet and peaceful there, with lots of seating area all dotted around. The gravel on the path can be a bit hard going for some buggys, but you could always switch to the grass instead. A leisurely walk round the main lake takes about 30-45 mins, for the more adventurous you could go on to the other lakes, dogs are welcome too, and for the nature lovers there are usually wetland birds to look at. A great mini family activity that doesn't cost anything!
