We like Coated water and the kids especially like the train rides which is now much longer after an extension. It's a shame you now have to pay to park but I feel it's worth it. I'd give 5 stars if it was free or there was more to do there.

Coate water is a picturesque place to visit. As well as the great scenery for a relaxing walk there is also the play park, crazy golf and railway.

We had a lovely walk around the lake. Bring bread to feed the birds. There is a paddling pool for little ones.

We went for a lovely walk round the lake and then had a go on the train which was brilliant! The guys that run it must be commended for their hard work, planning and volunteering spirit. It was wonderful!

A wonderful water park with much to see through all the seasons. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life where you can see the waterfowl on the lakes and birds in the wooded areas. Wild plants and fungi in the spring and autumn for naturists. Other activities include sailing, canoeing and golf. There are also hiking/cycling trails that... More
