Where can we park?

We have two public car parks, so there is space for everyone. Pitsford Water is open every day except Christmas Day.

  1. Pitsford Causeway Car Park, Brixworth Road, Holcot, Northamptonshire, NN6 9BN
  2. Grange Lane Car Park, Grange Lane, Pitsford, Northamptonshire, NN6 9AP


Day tickets relate to individual car parks but season tickets, valid in all of the Pitsford Water car parks, can be bought from Pitsford Water Fishing Lodge.

  • Anglian Water Daily charge £3.00 (£4.00 from April 2023)
  • Anglian Water Annual pass £45 (£60 from April 2023 - available from Pitsford Water Fishing Lodge)

Tickets are valid at all Anglian Water car parks and car park closing times are advertised at entrances. Vehicles still parked after closing time will be locked on site until the following morning.

Please note, the fees we raise are invested back in the park so we can conserve more habitats and improve the facilities you use during your visits.


From April 2023 due to changes to the car parking management system at Brixworth Country Park, Anglian Water car park season tickets will no longer be valid at Brixworth Country Park.

Parking for motorhomes

Pitsford Water has suitable parking for motorhomes. Car parks may be fitted with entrance barriers that allow for the extra height of motorhomes, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting in or out. Follow these simple guidelines:

  • Please observe the car parking charges which are the same for motorhomes.
  • Please be aware of the car park closing times as overnight parking is not permitted.

How accessible are you?

On top of the hard-surfaced track around the reservoir, there are several well-maintained access routes to our activity centres and attractions, all suitable for cycles, wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Brixworth Country Park itself was designed specifically to meet the needs of visitors with disabilities.
