Luckily it doesn’t have to be hot and sunny to visit the Cotswold Water Park – there is loads to do throughout the year. How about a spot of high ropes adventure?

What people say about the CWP…
“Great for walking and mountain biking through all seasons. Excellent cycle tracks and footpath network through a superb land and waterscape. Fantastic range of wildlife and waterbirds – and all for free!! Don’t just visit the one major lake. The Thames Path snakes all the way through from the source to Cricklade then on to Lechlade”
Cotswold Water Park review, Trip Advisor
Autumn is all about arrivals, departures and general movement of birds. There are numbers of waders being reported, these being visible on some of the newer gravel pits, particularly on eastern side of the Water Park or at Kent End. Goosander seen recently on Lake 56 Neigh Bridge. Keep an eye open for rarer species. Two Cattle Egret been spotted in a field near Ashton Keynes.
