From luxury hotels, lakeside lodges, cosy B&Bs and family-friendly campsites there are plenty of places to stay in the Cotswold Water Park

Explore the Cotswold Water Park by bike - bring your own or hire bikes throughout the year, and set off around lovely lanes and peaceful paths
With important numbers of certain types of waterbirds such as coot, pochard, wigeon and many more, like the delightful smew, this is a great place to come birdwatching
In the main part, a mild winter and only a few Smew are present with a pair seen on Lake 301. For the first time in a few years Short Eared Owl have appeared at Blakehill and a Penduline Tit showed up for one day only. Shorncote has a good mix of species (including Siberian Chiffchaff) and is probably the best birding area at present (wellies required). Please report any dead (or live) otters that you see as they are being monitored by the Trust.
