Bosworth Water Trust is a 50 acre water leisure park with 20 acres of water, located just out side of the picturesque village of Market Bosworth on the Leicestershire and Warwickshire borders.

The park offers a great place for the family for day out. Pack yourself a picnic or even bring along your BBQ. You will find that there are lots of picnic areas and bbq areas around the site. Your dogs are also welcome  as long as they are kept on a lead.

A very nice feature is the man made golden beach and the adjacent paddling area which are very popular with children and adults alike. You will also find a pirate adventure playground, this can keep the children amused for hours upon hours.

Bosworth Water Trust is becoming a very popular venue for serious and recreational fisherman alike, the site has 2 well stocked lakes with species such as Carp, Tench, Roach, Bream, Perch, Chubb and the very occasional Trout.

Keep nets are allowed to be used in the lake, but under no circumstances can fish be removed from the lake, all fish must be returned to the water. Fishing is only allowed in the designated areas.

The day tickets for 2010 cost £5 for day visitors and £2.50 for campers.

If its just some peace and quiet you are looking for in your day, then why not take a gentle stroll around the lake, and maybe find quiet spot to relax and enjoy the view. A nice slow stroll around the lake will take you 15 minutes or so. Then if it is nice and sunny, grab yourself a table outside the cafe, have a drink and watch the water activities. With so much safe open space to offer, then just let the children run free and enjoy themselves.

The lake is a very safe place for the family. With lifeguards, and rescue boats on stand-by to offer assistance when needed. The below photograph shows a person who fell out of his canoe, with the rescue craft ready on hand to assist with pumping the canoe out.

Pedlos with room for 4 for hire at £12 for half an hour.

Pedalos work by utilizing the pedaling motion to rotate a paddle wheel similar to the form of marine propulsion used in the earlier Paddle Steamers.
