It’s rightly famed for its picturesque villages of honey-coloured local stone. But who knew the Cotswolds is also where you’ll find one the UK’s biggest water parks? Not the whirlpool and water slides variety, but one that is made up of 150 lakes spread across 65 acres of prime water park. And when you own a holiday home in Hoburne Cotswold, the nearest of those lakes is practically on your doorstep.
With watersports, fishing, adventure activities, birdwatching and a host of other things to do, you could easily spend every day exploring these natural and manmade wetlands. But that would mean missing out on all the other things the Cotswolds have to offer.
The trails and walks that take you through idyllic undiscovered landscapes. The restaurants and retail therapy of nearby Gloucester and Cheltenham. Or the grandeur of Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill and now a world heritage site.
From river walks in Lower Slaughter to the ruins of Monk Bretton Priory in Barnsley, you never have to venture far in Gloucestershire to find a picturesque village, with its famous honey-coloured stone buildings.
With 150 lakes set over 40 square miles, the Cotswold Water Park offers loads of activities for everyone.Find out more
