This is the 'unofficial' site about Coate Water Country Park! This site was created as a means to share information, memories and thoughts about one of the best places to be in Swindon.

Scattered throughout this website are a number of photographs taken at, and around, Coate Water. It truly is a beautiful park which is very fortunate to be located in such a fantastic, natural, Wiltshire setting. To fill this site with too many photos would of course make it difficult (and time consuming) to navigate, so, instead we will be periodically changing some of the pictures.

If you have any photos that you would like to be included on this site for others to share, please send them to with WEBSITE PHOTOS in the subject line.

If you would like to know when new photos have been added, please write to with PHOTO UPDATE PLEASE in the subject line.
