Elder Lodge enjoys a very special lakeside location within a gated resort in the heart of the Cotswolds. Just south of Cirencester, guests enjoy many entertainment options within the development as well as being located on the doorstep of fabulous Cotswolds attractions. Villages and towns such as Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Tetbury, Cirencester, Malmesbury and Lacock are all close by and the regency pleasures of Cheltenham and the Georgian glories of Bath are less than twenty miles away.

Bourton-on-the-Water, like most of the Cotswolds, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is the Venice of the Cotswolds with beautiful bridges crossing the River Windrush. Gorgeous cosy cafes line the pretty streets together with houses made with enchanting honey coloured Cotswold stone.

Stow-on-the-Wold is a delightful market town, the highest of the Cotswold towns exposed on the 800 feet high Stow Hill at the crossroads with the Roman Fosse Way. The town boasts a fascinating history. At the height of the Cotswold wool industry, it held annual fairs where as many as 20000 sheep were sold at one time. The Market Square is very attractive with its ancient cross, town stocks and an elegant array of Cotswold town houses and shops. You will find many fine antique shops, art galleries, gift and craft shops.

Tetbury is another historic wool town. It is an architectural gem with many of the wool merchant’s houses remaining the same as they were in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Parish Church of St Mary’s has one of the tallest and most elegant spires in the UK. Tetbury is popular for its independent shops including antique shops, vintage and interior shops, exclusive boutiques and the Highgrove shop. Tetbury holds many regular events including the May Day Wacky Races, the Spring Bank Holiday Woolsack Races when contestants carry 65lb woolsacks up and down the 1 in 4 hill, the August Summer Show, the September Food and Drink Festival, the October Tetbury Music Festival and the Christmas Lights Switch-on.

Close by, visitors can enjoy the stunning botanical experience of the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, the glorious Elizabethan Chavenage House used for many famous films and TV series, the beautiful Arts and Crafts Manor at Rodmarton, the 13th century Lacock Abbey and HRH Prince of Wales’ stunning garden at Highgrove. Local equestrian events such as the Badminton Horse Trials, Gatcombe Festival of British Eventing and Beaufort Polo are all popular.

During peak times and school holidays there are Kids Clubs where activities include raft building, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, rounders, cricket, table tennis and lots more. Once the sun has gone down, the days do not end as children can explore the woods, gaze at the stars and enjoy delicious hot chocolate and marshmallows around the fire.

Outside of the resort there are plenty of other family friendly attractions. The Cotswold Wildlife Park is a family favourite set in 160 acres of parkland and gardens. The park is home to a huge selection of mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates from all over the world.

The friendly Cotswold Farm Park boasts an unrivalled group of British farm rare breeds including sheep, cattle, pigs, goats, horses, poultry and waterfowls. There are farm safari rides, an indoor tractor school, an adventure playground, indoor soft play, a farm nature trail and enchanting seasonal demonstrations such as lambing in the spring.

Birdland at Bourton-on-the-Water is set in nine beautiful acres of gardens and woodland. It offers over 500 exotic and rare birds from around the world in natural aviaries and waterside habitats. Children enjoy close encounters with flamingos, colourful parrots, laughing kookaburras, birds of prey, pelican, owls and more. They can meet the penguins at Penguin Shore and watch the feeding demonstrations. They can also follow the Ranger’s trail armed with special dinosaur tracker kits to find the 30 different dinosaurs. The Birdland Nursery is very endearing where children can watch eggs hatching and chicks taking their first steps.

Other popular attractions include Cirencester’s Corinium Museum and Elemental Sculpture Park, Cotswold Country Park at Shorncote, the Tolsey Museum at Burford, the National Trust’s Newark Park and Snowshill Manor and Garden. The list is endless!
