A recent visitor to the Cotswold Water Park had such a great holiday that they felt inspired to record their experiences in a poem, whihc we have been given permission to print below….a huge thank you to Tim Wells at Waterside Breaks for sharing the poem with us, and to Annabel Turner for composing it.

If anyone else would like to share their CWP holiday experiences we would be happy to print them….!
Stay in the Cotswold Water Park – it’s a UK gem
Enjoy a nice walk – go search for the Thames!

With dozens of lakes there’s plenty to do
Traditional villages – just take in the view!

At the Country Park you’ll never be bored
You can row, pedalo or water zorb!

At Head 4 Heights will you reach the summit
And be so pleased that you’ve climbed up and done it

From Go-By-Cycle why not hire a bike?
There’s lovely scenery – what’s not to like?

Visit Spring Lake and there you will find
Both water-skiing and ringo rides

Cotswolds fishing is great, of that there’s no doubt!
Choose from coarse, carp, or fly fishing for trout

At Spring Lakeside Brasserie enjoy a brunch
Or stop at the Gateway to eat lunch

The Old Boathouse pub overlooks a lake
And Friday’s the night for grilling some steak

Historic Cirencester you should visit one day
For the market, museum, boutiques and cafés

At the end when your Cotswolds holiday’s done
You’ll always look back and know you had fun.
