Bucket list – ‘Caravan holiday to Bosworth Water Park’ = completed.
I came across this water park last year when I was researching caravan parks with extra facilities. So I popped it on our bucket list to remind me to visit. As we were going to the area to review the Bosworth medieval festival I booked us and our caravan in for a short break. Bosworth water park is in the county of Leicestershire.
What is there to do at Bosworth Water Park?
There is plenty of family friendly activities that you can do at Bosworth water trust. Young and old will find something to suit themselves.
If you are taking the car and visiting for the day then you will have to use the pay and display car park. There’s a huge variety of different prices for parking. Over autumn and winter it’s £1 an hour in the week and £1.50 at weekends. For spring and summer that can increase to £2-2.50 an hour. You are free to use the beaches, soft play and playgrounds. Feeding the fish, playing crazy golf and taking anything out on the lake costs extra.
Bosworth Water Park | Caravan Park Review and Things to Do
There is a 12 hole adventure golf course. You can play for just £3.00 per person or £10 for a family of four. Sadly it rained a LOT when we were there so we didn’t get a chance to try out the crazy golf, nor the boats.
Boat, Pedalo and Canoe hire
You can rent a swan or dragon pedalo for £15 for half an hour. They also have a range of range of rowing boats and Canadian canoes available for hire. They supply lifejackets included in your rental price.
Feed the birds and fish
You can buy fish and duck food from the shop for £1 a tub and feed them by the water’s edge. This is quite an experience as all the fish and wildfowl on the lake seem to flock to feed from your offerings.
We later discovered just how friendly the swans on the lake are!
Paddle from the two man-made beaches
There are two man-made beaches at the water park around the two main lakes. The sand isn’t really deep enough for sandcastle building though. We were soon digging down to the liner underneath. Jamie had a really fun time playing by the waters edge. We even saw some kids braving the deeper and much colder water.
There is plenty for the kids to play on at Bosworth water park. There’s a couple of wooden pirate ships plus larger more modern play equipment.
In the summer months there is a mini roller coaster and bouncy castle at an additional cost. Sadly it rained too much for Jamie to have a go on them.
Other facilities at an additional cost are carp fishing, Dinghy sailing courses, Canoe and Kayaking courses, power boat courses and kids clubs.
Waters Edge Café with Soft play
By the main lake you will find Waters edge café. It’s not a large space however there is plenty of benches outside. There is a small soft play inside the café. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a small bar.
The Caravan Park
The campsite is a families only site. They have electric and non electric pitches for tents. The touring site is for couples over 25 and families and has gravel and grass pitches, some of these are along the water front. They have a toilet and shower block and all the other standard camping facilities. Such as dish-washing facilities, Elsan disposal, fresh water and waste disposal. Calor and Camping Gas bottles are available for exchange. There is a shop onsite that stocks toys and a few food and drink essentials.
The touring pitches are relatively large with a large gravelled area and a small amount of grass. They are electric pitches.
Prices seem to vary throughout the year. The caravan park is open all year round. I paid £54.00 for a two night stay.
We stayed for two nights and the site was well maintained. They don’t allow loud music so it should be relatively peaceful when you visit. I wish we could have used more of the facilities during our stay as that was my reason for picking this park. Sadly the rain had other ideas.
