Cotswolds Retreats properties are based on the Cotswold Water park, very close to Cirencester, the Capital of the Cotswolds. We also have a cottage in Stow on the Wold.
The Cotswold Water Park is an area of over 40 square miles and 180 lakes, with many different leisure providers, and a variety of places to stay. This stunning wetlands landscape hosts tens of thousands of breeding and watering birds and is an ideal destination for watching wildlife all year round.
With thirteen settlements of varying sizes across the Cotswold Water Park, it is no surprise that there are plenty of interesting places to visit and explore, for example, the town of Fairford boasts the only complete set of medieval stained glass in a parish church anywhere in the country; Cricklade where the great Roman road, Ermin Street crosses the River Thames; Down Ampney, the birthplace of Ralph Vaughan Williams; Ashton Keynes, with more bridges over the infant river Thames than London.
Stow-on the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold towns standing exposed on 800 feet high Stow Hill at a junction of seven major roads, including the Roman Fosse Way.
Hoburne Cotswold will be starting extensive development of their facilities, bringing a brand-new indoor pool and soft play area in 2024.
The work for this starts on 6th November 2023 and is expected to run until mid-late May 2024.
During the development phase the indoor pool and soft play area will not be available.
Hoburne hope to open the outdoor pool in time for Easter 2024 if the weather allows.
The Café will move into the sports bar area during the development.
During the period of the development there will be no charge for guest passes (know as resort fee) if you book through us, which allow access to the food and beverage areas, Fishing and Entertainment.
If you have already booked with us for this period, any resort fee paid will be refunded.
