Welcome to the Cotswold Water Park Website
The Cotswold Water Park is an area of 40 square miles, with more than 150 lakes set across the countryside of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and West Oxfordshire.
The Cotswold Water Park Trust is a charity which does much more than look after the tourism potential of the area – including estate management, biodiversity protection, conservation and wildlife protection. We rely on membership subscriptions and donations to fund our important work, and on our volunteers who do amazing work on behalf of the community.
Within the Cotswold Water Park there is a diverse range of businesses offering accommodation, leisure activities and food and drink. This website, which is managed by The Cotswold Water Park Trust, brings many of those businesses together to provide a central listing of what is available within this major tourist destination.
