BOOK YOUR AUGUST HOLIDAY
As temperatures reach their peak, a holiday by our spring fed clear water lake cannot be beaten. Enjoy some sunbathing on your pier between cooling off with some wild swimming. Take the boat out with a picnic hamper and find a nice hidden spot somewhere around the lake and roll out the picnic blanket. Or let us help you arrange bikes for your family summer holiday so you can enjoy an adventure around the lake paths or surrounding Cotswold lanes. You can also explore the quaint chocolate box villages and stop at the famous Cotswold pubs for a spot of lunch. There’s so much to do in and out of our reserve and if you’re booking for a large group holiday, we recommend Mayo Landing, our luxury cabin for up to 11 people – it comes complete with a pool, outdoor sauna, lake view hot tub, fire pit and BBQ.
PERFECT FOR HOT SUMMER DAYS
Our private lake is perfect for hot summer days. Cool off and take a dive into the safe, spring fed water from your cabins private beach, go out paddling on a fun and exciting paddleboard, or let us arrange some kayaks so you can enjoy a little workout. Fishing fans can also take the rowing boat out to try their luck at catching a fish. No matter what you get up to, our lake creates the perfect summer holiday for all ages. If you want to explore out of the water, take a walk around our reserve or take your binoculars to spot otters and birds. There are also 17 varieties of dragonflies and so many butterflies out at this time of year, so kids will be able to truly explore nature.
THINGS TO DO IN THE COTSWOLDS IN AUGUST
The Cotswolds really comes alive in August; from classic car festivals to country shows, there’s something for everyone. For something totally unique and different, go and enjoy the local water football match at Bourton on the Water – this strange annual tradition takes place in the shallow River Windrush and the crowds that gather always create a great atmosphere for first time visitors. The weather is still pretty hot so please don’t forget to pack sun cream for your daytrips – and you can even bottle up some of our own spring water before you set off! Some of the main attractions get busy in August so our tip is to see attractions earlier in the day or choose places a little more off the beaten track. For romantic strolls around the countryside on a holiday with your dog, take the OS Map in your cabin and follow the quiet footpaths for the best scenery. Keep an eye on our cotswold blog too for ideas on days out this August. But don’t worry if you’d rather stay on our reserve – most of our guests do. After all, it’s not easy to leave that lakeside hot tub and we certainly can’t argue with that.
