Overview

Located within the Cotswold Water Park, the Cotswold Country Park & Beach is a fantastic day out for all to enjoy. Brand new to the Park is the inflatable AquaVenture - leap, splash and slide, the greatest activity to hit the Cotswolds. Head to the soft sandy inland beach with lifeguarded lagoon all summer long. Enjoy lakeside walks, delicious food from fish and chips & stone baked pizzas to tempting cakes and ice creams or hire a BBQ pitch and enjoy a picnic. The lake offers fun for all from pedalos and rowing boats, to electric Mini port boats and water walkerz. Paddle out on a kayak or SUP with tuition available. There are plenty of activities on-land too, from crazy golf and adventure playgrounds to climbing walls and volley ball - The perfect day out for all, we offer great party packages to! Book online today and we look forward to seeing you soon!

We visited on Sunday and took advantage of the £5 per car spring deal and £8 pedalo with free mini golf deal. I think it’s great they allow you to take your own disposable bbqs in (which we did) and there is lots of space...More
