Great coffee, sourced from Coffee Masters of Worcester


The beef & horseradish panini alongside the very moist Cadbury Crunchie brownie was just the re-fuel we needed on our last cycle around south Gloucestershire


There's a fab selection of tray-bakes supplied by local suppliers Cotswold Larder & S Bakes, alongside a range of around 5 different toasties, paninis & bagel options


Cappuccino (£3.10), tea (£2.20), tray-bakes (from £2.70), muffins (£3.20), toasties (from £5.40), paninis (from £6.40), bagels (from £5.40), smoothies (£3.50), iced coffee (from £3.10)


Although there’s no bike racking, there's plenty of space for bikes around the former recycled shipping container beside the outdoor seating boasting spectacular views


With lots of seating both on the cafe’s outdoor terrace overlooking the lake and further seating situated all around Lake 12, it’s the ideal quick pitstop for cycling groups of all sizes passing by the Cotswold Water Park by bike


Aside the the 180 lakes of varying sizes around us, just 6 miles north is the thriving Roman market town of Cirencester, the largest in the Cotswolds. Being surrounded by picturesque Cotswold villages you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to rides, why not head north-west towards Minchinhampton Common, Stroud, Painswick and beyond?

Set beside Lake 12 within the Cotswold Water Park, an area of 40 miles containing 180 beautiful lakes, is a delightful cafe built from shipping containers boasting fantastic views from their terraced seating area and serving up great coffee, cakes and savoury snacks.

Cakes come courtesy of S Bakes and the Cotswold Larder, who also run their own superb coffee shop in the nearby picturesque Cotswold village of Broadway. Tasty bakes, with vegan and gluten free options range from an apricot & ginger flapjack, chocolate orange, crunchie or vegan brownies, cranberry & orange tiffin and a lemon & blueberry muffin.

If looking for something more savoury, there’s a selection of freshly made paninis, bagels and toasties; highlights include a beef & horseradish panini, smoked salmon & cream cheese bagel and char-grilled veg & vegan cheese toastie with sweet chilli sauce.

There’s plenty of space for bikes around the former recycled shipping container, with lots of seating both on their outdoor terrace and situated around the lake.
