Council owned and run this Park has great open spaces and a good range of activity facilities for families. Free parking and entry to the Park and inexpensive food and drink. Close to the M4 the Forest Café suits younger children and those with buggies to manage, whilst the Coach House Tea rooms is more characterful if less pushchair friendly.

You can park here for free and choose one of many walks around the grounds. The church and house have a long and fascinating history.

We stayed near this attraction. We wasn't intending to visit lydiard house but we stayed up the road. We decided to visit instead of travelling an hour to our chosen place, we were so glad we did the house and grounds were amazing. Well done Swindon council for saving this piece of history. We visited during a heritage open weekend... More

We visited this park with our two friends on Saturday afternoon, it was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed walking around the grounds and the lake, but we found it a bit odd having to pay to walk round the walled garden, which we didn't do! Also I was very disappointed as there was no access to the church.

This is a lovely park with a beautiful lake full of ducks and swans, an adventure playground for children of all ages and a lovely little café. Loads of space, so even on a bank holiday weekend it was not overcrowded and very peaceful. Lovely place for a walk or take a picnic and stay all day!

I stopped here for a half a day on a way to Bath, this is just off M4 in Swindon with ample free parking. The Lydiard House is lovingly restored and I was surprised that there were no other visitors inside the house but for that we got a personalised tour. There is a modest entry fee but I'm guessing...
