Me and my partner stayed here before a wedding and it was a very nice place to relax. Rooms were a good size and the staff were very nice and efficient. It was a bit of a pain to find the room as it isn't as logical as you would think but overall was a lovely visit

This is a great place to go on a date or take your children to. We went and unfortunately the weather wasn't great but if it was we would've gone round and done a bit more. The mini golf course is very old and could be improved.

With ample free parking and access to the paths along the disused Thames and Severn Canal it's a great place to go out for a walk. Friendly staff and a great view of a little lake.

Cotswold water is the outstanding beauty of England which offers fantastic fun activities such as pedal boating, sailing, climbing, archery etc. Walking around the beautiful lakes and peddling a boat around the small Islands inside the lakes are our favorite activities. The lakeside beach is not big but has its own beauty. We've never seen so many lakes in one... More

Been here several times with the family and it's appalling! Over priced, and every single time they have got our order wrong without an apology. We always have to get up and walk back tot the till to re-order the food. it then arrives at different times. I wouldn't mind if this were a one off occurrence, but it's becoming... More

Reasonably priced food and hot drinks at the Relish cafe next to the visitor centre We sat outside as we have a dog. There were plenty of tables to sit at, but no view from the outside tables. You have to go inside to take advantage of the spectacular lakeside view. We ordered our drinks and paid and the very... More

Booked a cottage in the Cotswolds Water Park to settle down and work. The peace and quiet at night was a welcome relief from the madness of London (we stayed on Isis Lake). Each lake has its own 'theme'. One is for watersports (noisy but with a lovely restaurant/cafe with a deck to view the waterskiiers from); another is for... More

Cotswolds answer to the Lake District . Whilst this area lacks the mountains and views of the Lake District , this is a beautiful part of England . Great walks and cycle routes and some lovely lakes . The visitor centre is excellent - great views and very helpful staff . If you like the outdoor life - this is... More

Stayed in a pub nearby for 5 days and found the whole area charming with lots of water sports available and walking and cycling trails.

Outdoor shop is very well stocked and staff very polite and can't help enough. Though being a water park they don't stock much for boaters/Canoeing etc. Gateway cafe is a lovely setting, food is excellent though £3.90 for a packet of tuna sarnies stung. However the cooked food n naughty cake is lovely. Something for everybody here no matter what... More
