Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cotswold Country Park and Beach emerges as a beacon of outdoor fun, adventure, and relaxation for families and adventure seekers alike. This captivating destination, with its sprawling landscapes and myriad of activities, offers more than just a day out—it promises an experience that engraves itself into the cherished memories of all who visit.

A Sandy Retreat Inland

The centrepiece of Cotswold Country Park and Beach is undoubtedly the UK’s largest inland sandy beach. This unique feature provides a slice of coastal paradise without the need to travel to the coast. Families flock here to enjoy the simple pleasures of sandcastle building, while the gentle lapping waters of the lake invite swimmers of all ages to take a dip. The beach also serves as a perfect backdrop for sunbathers and those looking to unwind with a good book and the sound of water and laughter in the air.

Thrills on the Water

For those seeking a burst of adrenaline, the AquaVenture water park stands ready to deliver. This floating obstacle course, with its slides, trampolines, and climbing walls, offers a thrilling challenge for kids and adults alike. It’s not just about the physical challenge; it’s about the laughter, the splashes, and the joy of making it to the end—or taking a hilarious tumble into the water.

Kayaking and paddleboarding offer a more serene but equally engaging way to explore the water. Whether you’re a seasoned paddler or trying it for the first time, gliding across the lake provides a sense of peace and connection with nature that is hard to find elsewhere.

Land-Based Excitement

The adventure doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. On land, visitors can engage in a friendly competition of mini-golf, race around on pedal go-karts, or let the little ones burn off energy in the adventure playground. Each activity is designed to provide fun for the whole family, creating an environment where laughter and joy are the order of the day.

Picnicking and Dining

All this adventure is bound to work up an appetite, and Cotswold Country Park and Beach caters to this with a range of dining options. From casual picnics by the lake to grabbing a bite at the on-site café, there’s something to satisfy every craving. The joy of sharing a meal outdoors, with the beauty of the Cotswolds as your backdrop, adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the day. You can also hire barbecue equipment in the park if you fancy cooking your own!

A Year-Round Destination

What makes Cotswold Country Park and Beach truly special is its appeal throughout the year. Summer brings the vibrancy of sun-soaked days on the beach and water sports, while autumn and spring offer the tranquility of lakeside walks amid the changing scenery. Even in winter, the park transforms into a serene landscape, offering a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
