Costa Del Rutland!
Buckets and spades at the ready! The big ‘Puddle’ (Rutland Water) now has a beach and a swimming area which opens this weekend!
Anglian Water, which owns the reservoir, has invested £20,000 to transform the North shore near Sykes Lane Visitor Centre, with two hundred tonnes of sand now covering a 590ft stretch of shoreline alongside a 107 sq ft water area for people to paddle in. The beach and the swimming/ paddling area will be open every weekend throughout the summer holidays.There will be a lifeguard on duty throughout to ensure it is safe and enjoyable for people to be in the water. As well as the beach, a giant sandpit is also being built at the Sykes Lane site. This photo of the beach was taken this morning.
Puddle Cottage is fully booked for this Summer but we are busy taking bookings for Summer 2015. Puddle Cottage is a 4 star self catering cottage in Edith Weston on the South Shore of Rutland Water. The cottage has one bedroom and can sleep 2 people comfortably. Well behaved dogs are very welcome.
