Life's a beach even without the sea
THINGS are really taking off for the largest inland bathing beach in the UK.
Cotswold Country Park and Beach, at the Cotswold Water Park, near Cirencester, has seen visitor numbers swell.
The success been due to a combination of the good summer weather and the start of the school holidays.
Families have been flocking to the site in numbers to enjoy activities such as boating and walking by the lakes and having barbecues or refreshments from the cafe.
Gents, come in to Earl's & Co and enjoy a haircut and finish, glass of whisky and a shoeshine for £18.50

A spokesman said: "Definitely since the better weather has arrived, we've been quite busy.
"It's been going well and, as usual, we've been very popular.
"People love the inland beach. Everybody loves to come swimming."
He said the fact that the sun had been shining more this summer than last year had been a big relief.
"We've been much busier than last summer," he said.
