Welcome to your next escape at Cotswold Water Park Retreats, where elegance meets the tranquility of lakeside living. Introducing our newest addition: a stunning property that promises an unforgettable stay with its breathtaking views, private hot tub, and direct access to serene lake waters.

We are very excited to offer our first home on a new lake for our guests to enjoy. Summer lake is on the opposite side of the road to Waters Edge where many of our properties are currently located. Summer Lake properties offer something slightly different with New England style 3 storey buildings on a private gated lake. We think you are going to love this house.

As you step into this luxurious home, leave the world behind and immerse yourself in sophistication. The entrance hall, a welcoming space for your outdoor gear with a boot room off to the right, leads you into the heart of the home—a stylish open-plan lounge, kitchen, and diner. This area, designed with socialising in mind, blends modern elegance with the warmth of a family gathering spot. Whether you’re whipping up a gourmet feast in the well-equipped kitchen or sharing stories around the dining table, this space is perfectly configured for making memories.

The property sleeps eight guests comfortably across four beautifully appointed bedrooms, ensuring everyone has their private retreat. Each room has been designed with comfort and style in mind, from the sumptuous king-size beds to the thoughtful touches that make each space feel like home.

Corinium Museum

The Corinium Museum, nestled in the heart of Cirencester, the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds,’ is a gateway to the rich and intricate history of Roman Britain. It stands on the site of what was once one of the largest Roman towns in England, offering a captivating glimpse into ancient life through its remarkable collection of Roman artifacts. From intricate mosaics and exquisite jewelry to well-preserved Roman villas, the museum brings the past to life through interactive exhibits and educational programs. It not only highlights Cirencester’s Roman heritage but also traces the area’s history from the Stone Age through to the modern period. A visit here promises an enriching experience for history buffs, families, and anyone keen to explore the layers of time that make up the Cotswolds’ unique character. Remember to visit the Roman amphitheatre off Cotswold Avenue in Cirencester which is listed as an ancient monument and also the Roman Villa at Chedworth, the largest such find in the UK.

Climb the tower in St John the Baptist Church


Nestled in the scenic Cotswold countryside, Bibury is often celebrated as ‘the most beautiful village in England.’ This charming accolade comes from none other than the renowned designer, William Morris. Upon entering Bibury, you’ll immediately encounter Arlington Row. This line of 17th century weavers’ cottages, originally converted from a 1380s wool store, exemplifies quintessential English country life. Their picturesque charm has become a symbol of the village, making them a favourite among photographers and visitors alike. Adding to Bibury’s serene atmosphere is the River Coln, one of England’s cleanest rivers. It meanders gently through the village, forming the perfect backdrop to the Cotswold-stone cottages. If you look closely, you might even spot trout darting in its clear waters, adding a touch of life to this idyllic scene. Just a stone’s throw away from Arlington Row, you’ll find the Bibury Trout Farm, one of the oldest in Britain. Here, visitors can indulge in a spot of fishing – a delightful way to spend an afternoon, especially with the farm’s offer to prepare your catch for you! The village is also home to St Mary’s Church, a remarkable Saxon church dating back to the 8th century. With its stunning stained-glass windows and a unique sundial dated 1623 in its churchyard, St Mary’s adds a historic touch to the village. Bibury truly encapsulates the essence of the Cotswolds: quiet, quaint, and steeped in charm. It’s a destination that feels like a step back in time, offering a tranquil retreat from the fast pace of contemporary life.
