Welcome to the Cotswold Water Park Website

The Cotswold Water Park Trust is a charity which manages the beautiful Cotswold Water Park – an area of 40 square miles, with more than 150 lakes set across the countryside of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and West Oxfordshire.

We do much more than look after the tourism potential of our area – including estate management, biodiversity protection, conservation and wildlife protection.

We rely on membership subscriptions and donations to fund our important work, and on our volunteers who do amazing work on behalf of the community.

Winter Activities in the Cotswold Water Park

Many of the operators change their opening hours or close during the winter months. We advise you to telephone in advance.

The Cotswold Water Park Trust does not operate the Cotswold Country Park & Beach. The contact number is 01285 868096
