Because you have to pay to park at Coate Water we parked at the Sun Inn because we were going in there for tea after our walk

A great place for familys... walk, run, play football, rounders or use the onsite park or crazy golf. On selected dates it has a water-based park. It even has a funky mini steam driven locomotive (train) track. Snacks can be bought from the little kiosk.

From the disabled car park, you can get to the lake and walk round parts of it, not all. A nice little cafe is accessible as well

I often walk here sometimes visiting the incredible miniature railway or embarking on a peaceful walk around the lake. The place is a real credit to Swindon.

I do not know but there never seems to be any officials around so maybe you can. Best contact the Water Board by googling their details.

Sorry, I can't remember the details but I think it is closed during the week over the Autumn and Winter but I'm not sure about weekends.
