The Cotswold Water Park is much more than 'a park'! An area of 40 square miles between Swindon and Cirencester, with 150 lakes, it has many different leisure providers and places to stay, eat and explore. Since 1967, when the whole area was designated as 'the Cotswold Water Park', it has grown to become a major tourist destination in its own right - more than 500,000 visitors come here every year. Within the area there are 14 villages and towns where more than 20,000 live and work. Among many others, the Cotswold Water Park specialises in wakeboarding, skiing, boat hire, canoeing & kayaking, sailing and windsurfing. As well as water sports, the water park offers land activities such as aerial adventure, angling, beaches, horse riding, rally driving and much more!

Birds, bats, butterflies and Black Poplars are just some of the flora and fauna that benefit from these protected spaces, and all our reserves are easily accessible through public or permissive rights of way. Winter and spring: Goldeneye, Lapwing, gulls, and resident water birds such as Gadwall, Pochard, Wigeon, Teal and Tufted Duck can be viewed from the hide at Lake 74. Summer and autumn: dragonflies and damselflies, Blackcap, Sedge Warbler, Reed Bunting, Chiffchaff, Hobby, Sand Martin and Swift. At the heronry, viewed from the Reed Hide at Lake 68, fledgling Grey Heron and Little Egret can be seen leaving the nest and loafing around the site. Whether you are looking for a quick coffee and cake, a speedy business lunch or a long romantic dinner there are plenty of eating out places to choose from in the Cotswold Water Park. There are family (and dog!) friendly country pubs, quirky tea rooms, lakeside bars and brasseries where you can watch all the action on the water without even getting wet!

A Great Stay

WR, Essex, stayed: June 2018

This is a fantastic hotel, and would not hesitate to recommend it, we had a long weekend stay and I would say that from the treatment that we had from the staff we felt like royalty. Within a couple of hours the staff were recognising us and referrering to my wife & I by our names, so we were very impressed with the professionalism and the genuine desire to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The restaurant is very good and to me you know that the restaurant is good when you have locals come to eat there, I thought that it had a good selection on the menu and was reasonably priced, and the Full English breakfast was very good in the morning. I would recommend pre-booking a car parking space as there is only limited parking available for the hotel but other than that I cannot fault the place, we will be going back. Well done to all of the team at the Kings Head, and thank you for a very relaxing & enjoyable stay.

KP, Hampshire, stayed: February 2018

This was our second stay at the Kings Head, and it was just as good, if not better than the first. My husband needs an accessible bathroom, and every effort was made to meet our needs. The food in the restaurant was delicious, all staff were very friendly, and we look forward to visiting again.

What a find!

PG, Oxfordshire, stayed: December 2017

This hotel had everything to help celebrate a special belated birthday.  The spa was wonderfully peaceful and the room was one of the most luxurious we have stayed in.  The staff were so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them to arrange, making the whole experience a very memorable one.  The restaurant food was out of this world and we enjoyed three very perfect courses.  We're already saving to go back!

Great location for a girls' reunion weekend - handy for shops, restaurants and its own spa - which we had almost to ourselves so didn't annoy others with our chattering! Rooms are a good size though could do with some long hanging space.

Everything was fine except our reception - we were told that we were not expected.  Eventually these
problems were resolved thanks entirely due to the efforts of your new young girl on reception. I asked for the manager but he didn't appear - such a pity!!
