Picturesque and enjoyable place for walks

A very beautiful place well worth stopping at if you fancy an afternoon walk out to air the cobwebs! Not much was happening but then we did visit in March.

Lived in Swindon 2 years nearly. Can't believe no one had told me to get down coate water sooner. It's a fantastic walk especially with dogs, a small tea coffee ice cream point near the listed concrete diving board also!

I have been visiting Coate Water since I was a child nearly 70 years ago and although it has changed over the years it has never lost its magic. Whenever you visit throughout the year it is a great space to enjoy nature, especially birds, walking with or without a dog, peace & wild flowers, also a childrens play area... More

Great for walking the dogs! Tends to attract families more so in the summer for the birds and small park for kids Nice for a walk Probably not the most entertaining place for children.

Always come down to coate and let the dog get muddy! Takes a good 45 mins to walk around and the dog loves it. Beautiful in the morning too!

Been going to Coate Water since I was a child and now I take my own children there and have done for many years. I think it's the pure simplicity of it that takes us back..not to mention the amazing food the little hut has to serve (the cakes are heavenly) and the hot food is served fresh and HOT.... More

As one brought up a few minutes from London's Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, I feel Coate could have graciousness, focus, interest, design, lawns, foutains and some birds and yet it has a baldness and lack of warmth, a featureless rather basic feel to it.
