Beat the rush of school holidays and enjoy beautiful Cotswold gardens, the first of the summer’s watersports and fun food festivals for the whole family. Whether you are on a couple’s holiday or a family break there is something fun to look forward to in June.
Birdland is in the quaint village of Bourton on the Water. A village that justifies a visit in June by itself. Walking the winding lanes and crossing the pretty bridges that crisscross over the River Windrush it’s everything you imagine a Cotswold village to be.

Whilst at the Lake…
Enjoy long days reading on your cabin’s private decking, exploring the 2.5 mile private walk and taking a dip in your hot tub perched on the lakes edge with not another soul in sight. Jump in a kayak or in your rowing boat and let the gentle breeze carry you across the 100 acres of water to a spot where you can roll out the picnic rug. Nature is everywhere in June so look out for the abundant wildlife and wildflowers whilst out and about in your private nature reserve. When each day comes to a close, gather round your fire pit and toast a marshmallow under the clear starry skies whilst planning your next June day out in the Cotswolds.
