More Information...

The Cotswold Water Park is an area of 40 square miles containing over 150 lakes. It is around one of these lakes that you will find two small beaches. The lakes here were created around 40 years ago when the site was used for gravel extraction. Since then they have been allowed to fill with natural, crystal-clear groundwater. The beaches themselves are "artificial" being comprised of nice, soft imported sand. Of the two beaches "Main beach" is the larger, but there is also a smaller children's beach. In addition there is a doggy swimming area, but please not, dogs are not allowed on the beaches themselves. The Cotswold Country Park provides excellent facilities including water sports such as stand up paddleboarding and kayaking. A new inflatable floating assault course has also been set up on the North Lake. A cafe, ice-cream hut and beach shack take care of snacks whilst there are plenty of BBQ and picnic areas around the lakes. The Cotswold Country Park and Beach re-opened in May 2017 under new operators.
