In the past we have enjoyed going here to watch the wakeboarding - a great afternoon of free entertainment watching people plant themselves face down in the water two seconds after leaving the jetty, only to then queue up again for 20 mins to repeat the experience. There was a simple shack bar serving hot/cold drinks and light snacks. Now... More

Found this last weekend just of the A419 Junction Cotswold Water Park fist left, only just opened and in early stage of establishing the business. However the young staff are well informed and will help all ages get on the lake and try Kayaking single or double, Single or Double Canoes, Paddle Boards or Rowing Boats all with no fuss,... More

We live 30 minutes away but had never visited the Park, so a sunny Saturday saw the bikes on the bike rack and off we set. After calling at the Visitor Centre, we got on the bikes map in hand. Where were the lakes, we wondered, as high hedges hemmed us in whatever road we took. Eventually we found a... More

Around a 20/30 min walk through a nature area to get to a lake. Not many areas to get close to the lake to picnic or sunbathe though but still quite a pretty spot and quieter than the beach area in the school holidays

They might as well have a sign up saying children welcome if not in a buggy, wheelchairs users forget it. I really don't know how this a fairly new facility has got way without making at least some routes accessible for wheelchairs. In fact I think it's pretty disgusting in this day and age. Also five pound per adult to... More

Visited the neigh bridge lake today at somerford keynes. Thought of it as a great idea as im a keen carp fisherman and my girlfriend loves nature. So pleases the pair of us. Great entrance, signs, car park etc but then it went a bit pear shaped. Loads of loud 'unhealthy' looking people hanging out, sprawled across the grass areas... More

Went for a light lunch. My wife had a pr-packed sandwich which she said was quite good. I wanted a toasted sandwich which they could not supply. I settled for a pr-packed panini which they toasted and served with salad. The panini was tasteless and undercooked and the salad was without any dressing. I left most of it. The standard... More

My husband booked a massage session for 2 and we were really pleased with the service. I did notice the swimming pool temperature was a little bit cold but overall the place was nice .

we visited the Cotswold Wildlife Park on a sunny day and wanted to find some refreshments, we found that the cafe in the centre of the wildlife park was an oasis and was very spacious, good choice of meals, helpful and friendly staff, clean surroundings. we enjoyed our meals

The Cotswold water park is made up of many lakes, or former gravel pits. Some have been transformed into activity lakes which are great for kid, adults, adventurers etc! Parking is expensive in some of the areas with activities and there are free car parks around lakes without activities so if you want to save anew quid park here and... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit to the Cotswold Water Park. With more than 150 lakes in this area, there is a huge choice of activities and places to go. For first time visitors, calling in to the Gateway Centre ( Spine Road, near South Cerney Gl7 5TL) is a good move, as you can... More
