First-class Facilities

We pride ourselves on the facilities we offer at Stratford Parks and we think you’ll be pretty impressed too!

Riverside Stratford - riverside dining and drinking

Riverside Stratford

Standing tall at the heart of the 3 parks is Riverside Stratford which commands spectacular views of the river and Welcombe Hills beyond.  The wraparound balconies mean you can make the most of the views whilst enjoying the delicious food and drink on offer. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, this venue now includes The Muddy Oar Bar featuring classic styling with a modern twist. Enjoy cosy booths, or watch the big games in the sports viewing lounge. There is an array of delectable gins, bubbles and beers as well as some mouth-watering cocktails and mocktails and a wide selection of wines. The bar menu offers breakfast, sharing platters, sourdough pizzas and snacks.  Pop next door and you’ll find The Galley Kitchen which offers more formal dining but still with a relaxed setting. Here you can enjoy a fantastic menu with an onus on affordable quality. Internationally inspired quality locally sourced food, simply presented and cooked to perfection. The kids are catered for too with a fun menu packed with quality ingredients and fresh flavours.  What’s more, holiday home owners benefit from a loyalty card providing a 20% discount on all food and drink.Sharing platters in The Muddy Oar

Live Entertainment

Throughout the season, there is a varied programme of events and live entertainment including bands, seasonal events, kids activities and fun on the river! There’s something for everyone to enjoy so keep an eye on the noticeboards around park or on our Facebook page for details of what’s coming up.


If you’re after a bit of friendly competition with fellow holiday home owners, then join in the fun at our bowling green located on Rayford Park. For fun with the kids, head over to the dinosaur crazy golf, located underneath the restaurant, and then the children can let off steam at the children’s play area with climbing frames and swings. For your four-legged friends, we have a dedicated dog walking field where they can be exercised off the lead, plus there’s plenty of local walks too.  During the summer months, on selected dates, Paddle Adventure join us and you can try your hand at kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing and archery! Plus if you have your own boats, there are private slipways and moorings making it easy to access the river.  

Unique River Taxi

The facility that probably excites people the most though is our unique River Taxi service!  Running daily during the main season (weather depending!) hop on the river taxi from the riverbank by the Bar & Restaurant and enjoy a leisurely journey to Stratford town centre where you’ll be dropped off at the marina. It takes the stress out of finding a parking space and means you can spot wildlife on your way.
