Attraction Information

Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the perfect family day out. Home to the largest inland beach in the UK with lifeguards on duty every weekend and school holidays, it is perfect for paddling and swimming. With a wide variety of activities, including: pedalos, rowing boats, water zorbing, wakeboarding, crazy golf, adventure playgrounds and more, there is something for everyone (even the dogs). The park is the starting point of several stunning lakeside walks also leading to local nature reserves, which attract a plethora of wildlife annually. There are seven bookable BBQ pitches, ideal for family gatherings, birthday parties, or any special occasions.

The Lakeside Park Cafe is open every day serving sandwiches, paninis, salads, ice creams, hot and cold drinks. The Beach Cafe is open every weekend and during school holidays serving, chips, burgers, and slush puppies.

So pack your buckets and spades, and get down to Cotswold Country Park and Beach!
