Planning Your Perfect Holiday to the Cotswolds

In the South of England lies the unspoilt, picturesque area of the Cotswolds. Hoburne Cotswold is surrounded by four beautiful lakes where you can pedalo and fish to your heart’s desire. Surrounding our park is 40 square miles of lakes where you can enjoy activities such as canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding.

If you want to explore the area on foot, there are plenty of charming villages and towns nearby with buildings made from golden Cotswold stone. With plenty on offer for thrill seekers and peace lovers alike, here are some of Cotswold’s highlights so you can start planning your perfect getaway!
