The Cotswold Water Park is much much more than 'a park' ! It is an area of 40 square miles and 150 lakes, with many different leisure providers, and many different places to stay. Since 1967, when the whole area was  designated as 'the Cotswold Water Park', it has grown to become a major tourist destination in its own right - more than 500,000 visitors come here every year. Within the area there are 14 villages and towns where more than 20,000 live and work. 

If you are looking for specific activities such as kayaking, swimming  or cycling, take a look at the Things to Do menu, and then contact the individual leisure providers directly for prices and times etc.
