The Cotswold Water Park is a great place to explore!


With more than 150 lakes spread over forty square miles, there is something for everyone – from angling to archery, watersports to walking, birdwatching to biking, to name just a few things you can do around here. Contact the individual operators to find out prices and how to book the activities – links are on the right.


And it’s not all about water – with beautiful country walks, the infant River Thames, unspoilt Cotswold villages, historic towns, nature reserves, all a short distance away from London, Bristol, Birmingham and the South West of England, it’s a great place for a weekend or longer – you will find there is always plenty to do.
