A Splashing Day Out at Cotswold Country Park and Beach

How lovely has it been to have the sun shining, especially since last week saw a bank holiday/half term AND the sun shining, a combination practically unheard of here in the UK, right? So with that in mind we knew we wanted to make the most of having some family time in the sun and decided to head over to Cotswold Country Park and Beach, a short drive from where we live, situated in Cirencester. 

Cotswold Country Park and Beach is situated within the wider Cotswold water park and features a family friendly inland beach area complete with its very own swimming lagoon area (part of the South Lake). The water is manned by lifeguards during peak times and section of the lake is partitioned off specifically for swimmers and visitors to the beach to use so kids can't go too far out onto the lake. 

The beach area scoops around the lake in a semi circle shape offering plenty of space for visitors to sit and enjoy the sand and the water without feeling too overcrowded. Or if you would prefer to sit on the grass there is a raised grass verge behind the sand (with steps leading down to the beach) around the lake area too, meaning there is ample space and seating for everyone to enjoy their visit without feeling overcrowded.

Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo **REVIEW**

Last week we headed off for a short break at Bluestone Wales and I really wanted to explore a little and find a day our for the kids whilst we were there, that's when I came across Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo!

Searching their website and discovering they had been given the Best Day Out in Wales award I knew this place was going to be good but I definitely wasn't prepared for just how good!

Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo has over 750 animals for you to visit and you can also get up close to furry and feathery farmyard friends in the farmyard barn. If you want more than animals though, no worries as Folly Farm has over 16 different rides in their vintage themed fairground, as well as 8 outdoor adventure and play area's. With this in mind Folly Farm really does have something to keep every member of the family happy.
