Want the perfect family day out? Cotswold Country Park and Beach, located just outside Criencester, is open year-round, and offers the largest inland beach in the UK with lifeguards on duty for paddling and swimming. This year we have teamed up with a local outdoor company, Dynamic Pursuits, to provide more exciting water sports. Some of our new activities for 2013 include: kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, raft building, and various team building activities. As well as these new activities, we are still offering boat hire (pedalo's and rowing boats), and water zorbing (large hamster balls on the water). Our other activities include; a 9 hole crazy golf course, adventure playgrounds, lakeside walks, and bouncy castles and slides.

Here at Cotswold Country Park and Beach we have seven bookable BBQ's, including their surrounding areas, appropriate for parties, corporate events, gatherings, and special occasions. There is also an inside heated room, known as Toad Hall, which can be booked for those rainy days.

So why is Cotswold Country Park and Beach the perfect family day out? Whether there are four of you, or forty of you, there is something for everyone; even the dogs.

We offer discounts for large group bookings including: school trips, local organisations, and group parties. This year we have new activities that are perfect for groups of all ages and all occasions.

An exciting new addition to the Park this year is our new café, Lakeside Park Café. They have strong principles, and firmly believe that Fairtade, Local and Organic products are the best way forward - so you won't find any Coke, Mars bars or Walkers Crips, instead a gorgeous range of tasty offerings. You can visit the Lakeside Park Café for a tasty cake after a lovely lakeside walk, or bring your family out for lunch as you sit and watch the wildlife and activities on the lake. They also offer delicious Marshfield's Ice Cream, and frozen yoghurts served from the Lakeside Beach Café (located next the beach).
