    Pack your bucket and spade and head to Rutland Water beach – the 1st inland bathing water location in England to have a Blue Flag and Seaside Award!

    Located at Rutland Water’s North Shore (Sykes Lane), Rutland Water beach provides 140 metres of sandy shoreline and a 2,800m2 area for you to paddle and swim in. On site there is also a refreshment kiosk, mini golf course, visitor centre, children’s adventure playground, toilet block and an off-lead dog walking area.

    Please bear in mind the beach is seasonal and is only operational in the summer months, as having a lifeguard present is vital for safety.
