We really enjoyed our visit to this water and wildlife area. Although in February it was a bit boggy and wet underfoot we enjoyed the walk around the large lake taking in bridges and pooh sticks. The cafe was clean and provided an excellent array of cakes and warm food. A good place to enjoy a stroll and get some... More

The walk was acceptable but some of the paths were ankle deep in mud making them virtually impassable. On return to the car park, we attempted... More

I went to the Cotswold country park as a bird spotter as I had seen that several birds I was interested in had been seen there. It was obvious that the place caters for people wanting a meal or a walk, possibly with their dogs. The lakes local to the info place and eating area were very popular but the... More

Had late breakfast at the Visitors Centre. The food was delicious and well priced and efficient, friendly service. This place is worth a visit for the lovely timber building alone. Also convenient to the Cotswold Outdoor clothing store next door. We really are privileged to have the Cotswold Water Park on our doorstep.
