On the south eastern edge of the Cotswolds is Britain’s largest man-made group of lakes. The Water Park is 50% larger than the Norfolk Broads covering an area of 40 square miles and has 132 lakes which are flooded quarries that were originally mined for their rich gravel deposits. Extraction still continues, but the emphasis now is on leisure – and there is plenty of it.

The Water Park is set in beautiful countryside and makes the ideal centre for families, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. The lakes are fed by the River Thames whose source is just northwest of the Park and the river Churn. The clear lime rich spring waters provide very high water quality and the Park is of national importance for its nature conservation.

The Water Park provides water based activities including wind surfing, angling, sailing, canoeing, and sub-aqua and power boating. In quiet there are opportunities to watch the large bird population especially the winter visitors.
