The Cotswolds have unparalleled natural beauty and a whole host of outdoor activities. This makes it ideally suited to those families who love to embrace their wilder side and get stuck in with some serious adventures. Whether it’s trekking, off-road mountain biking, archery, or getting up close and personal with the local (and not so local) wildlife, the Cotswolds is one enormous playground for nature-lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Outdoor adventures for the entire family
That’s not to say that you have to do it all yourself. Our holiday cottages in the Cotswolds put you within easy reach of many kid-friendly attractions that offer something a little different to your traditional family holiday fare.
Top of the list is the Cotswold Water Park. Consisting of more than 150 lakes spread over an area of 40 square miles, this water park hosts it all. From wakeboarding to sailing, kayaking to windsurfing, you can zip up your wetsuit, slip on a lifejacket and get involved in some adrenaline-fuelled activities.
The Cotswold Wildlife Park is also a major draw for many of the families that visit the area. Home to more than 260 different animals, you’ll get to see rhinos sharing the Manor House grounds with giraffes and all kinds of mischievous monkeys.
Also, we have cottages in the Cotswolds with hot tubs, which we’re sure the kids will love jumping into when they arrive back home!
