About Woodchester Park

A tranquil wooded valley with remains of an 18th and 19th-century landscape park and a chain of five lakes.

Secreted away in the surrounding woodland, you'll find an old Boat House, built in the early 19th century. It was restored in 1998 and bats now roost in the roof space, emerging at dusk to hunt over the lake.
A natural play trail, including stepping logs and balance beams is set within a woodland landscape. Tinkley Gate café serves homemade Pizzas, focaccias, ice-creams and more in a countryside setting with far-reaching views and plenty of safe grass space for families to enjoy.

The restoration of this varied landscape is an ongoing project. Waymarked trails (steep in places) lead through picturesque scenery, passing an unfinished Victorian mansion (not National Trust).
