Welcome to the Cotswold Water Park Website
The Cotswold Water Park Trust is a charity which manages the beautiful Cotswold Water Park – an area of 40 square miles, with more than 150 lakes set across the countryside of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and West Oxfordshire.
We do much more than look after the tourism potential of our 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 do amazing work on behalf of the community.
