You’re likely to be swimming with friends and make new ones along the way, so why not live life swimmingly away from the pool by meeting up before or after class. Here are some local places we think you and your children may like:
There is a play-park in Standlake next to the village hall or a bit further afield in Witney there is The Leys Splash Park.
The Black Horse - village pub offering classic food including fresh seafood with a kids’ play area.
Rose Revived – A popular place to eat or drink on the banks of the Thames in nearby Newbridge.
Bampton Coffee House – offering freshly prepared meals or just a cup of tea.
The Coffee Shed – next to The Leys Splash Park in Witney offering food and drink.
