Cotswold Water Park has many different leisure providers and places to stay, the list of things to do truly is endless!

ELEMENTAL SCULPTURE PARK
Situated in a 10 acre, ever changing site of growing biodiversity and natural ecosystems, the Elemental Sculpture Park is the perfect environment for artists to showcase their work.

Home to HRH Prince Charles, Tetbury is a stunning market town dotted with boutiques and great places to stop for food. The town is considered an 'architectural gem' due to its many wool merchant houses still intact.
The Highgrove Estate is also open for tours to catch a glimpse into royalty.
Over the years Cirencester Park has been a deer park, a military base, a hospital and the venue for a Glenn Miller concert.
It was originally laid out in the 1700s as a deer park by the first Earl Bathurst. It remained that way until the First World War when it became a military camp, once home to the Warwickshire Yeomanry.
During this time the fences surrounding the deer park fell into disrepair and fallow deer escaped, a herd of which roam the Park to this day.
With 2,500 species of tree, the arboretum plays a vital part in conservation and research as well as a beautiful place to walk amongst nature.
The stunning colours of the changing leaves make the arboretum the perfect place to set your autumnal walks.
For music lovers, the arboretum is home to numerous live music events throughout the year!
