A popular centre for leisure pursuits, especially windsurfing, sailing, fishing and other watersports on the eight or so lakes which are close by.

There is a 2 mile walk, part of the Windrush Path, from Standlake down to the River Thames at Newbridge. Along the footpath look out for the striking mosaic sculptures created by the local community - Standlake to Newbridge walk (pdf 1.3Mb)

Just to the south of the village is Standlake Common Nature Reserve, where there are two bird hides giving a view over the reserve - keys are available from Witney Visitor Information Centre.
