Lydiard Outdoors

Lydiard Park is beautiful and inspiring place to visit throughout the year. Visitors are free to wander through its 260 acre historic landscape of rolling lawns, woodlands, lakes and pasture. Miles of accessible paths allow you to explore leisurely on foot, or enjoy running and cycling in this quintessentially English country landscape.

The park is much loved by local people, attracting 800,000 people each year. It’s a perfect place to meet up with friends and popular for family picnics and dog walks.

The Coach House Café is a snug place to warm up with a hot drink and snack in winter and for summer teas the courtyard is a suntrap.
