Those of you staying at our Rutland site will be pleased to know that a brand new attraction is coming your way as of this weekend!
Rutland Water is a huge wetland reserve and leisure area, just minutes from Exton Park. Activities range from walking to cycling to water sports. The beach, which was created in 2014, has bought with it swimming opportunities and a sandy haven to relax on. The beach is located on the northern shore of the huge lake and this year opens its new attraction – the UK's largest inflatable aqua park.
The Rutland Water Sports Centre is located at Whitwell Creek, close to the beach and just 10 minutes from Exton Park. Here you can hire wetsuits and sports gear as well as access the new aqua park. The Aqua Park consists of several huge, inflatable slides, a climbing wall and trampoline amongst other obstacles. It's great for all ages and really, really fun.
Officially the park opens on the 9th of July and will be on site until September. You can book a 55 minute session online via their website and this will ensure you don't need to queue to book on the day, you can simply turn up and collect your wristbands. The price for a full session is £15 and wetsuit hire is £5. Check out the website for more information and bookings.
Luci loves getting out and about for a good cycle ride or easy-going walks in the countryside, and thoroughly enjoyed the time she previously spent working for the National Trust. Her love of writing started from a young age and on rainy days nothing beats curling up in a secret corner with a good book.
