About Grey Heron Lodge

Grey Heron Lodge is a luxury lakeside property with everything necessary for a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Sited in the highly desirable Cotswold Water Park, the architecturally interesting property is inspired by the beachfront properties of Cape Cod, with stylish wooden shingles and a spacious deck complete with a hot tub and kayak. Three comfortable bedrooms sleep up to six guests, and you can tailor the layout to meet your requirements. The lake is only a few short steps from the door with other excellent amenities, including a family-friendly pub and restaurant, outdoor pizzaria and bar, and a large outdoor clothing and equipment shop and visitors centre, only a short walk away.  Pamper packages available include prosecco, cake and robes from £4 pp based on 6 adults).  These are included in 7 night Summer Holiday/Christmas/New Year bookings

The Cotswold Water Park was designed for relaxation and enjoyment. Every feature of the venue has been considered carefully to ensure human visitors and residents feel at home and protect the natural habitat of the birds and wildlife that flourish in the 40 square mile nature reserve. With more than 150 lakes at your disposal, there are endless opportunities to enjoy being on or beside the water. Fish for carp within only a few meters of the lodge's huge deck, and make use of the free two-person kayak that is at your disposal to paddle around Windrush Lake. Waterskiing, boating, and other watersports are all popular, with local equipment hire and tuition for those who desire. Other sporting facilities include a football green with nets, three tennis courts (including one with floodlights), a games venue with table tennis, pool tables and other indoor fun, a playground for children to enjoy, and a sandy beach on the lake. There is also a stream. There are miles of accessible footpaths and cycling routes within the nature reserve, and the Thames Path and Cotswold Way are nearby for longer jaunts.

Staying at Grey Heron Lodge puts you in a fantastic position to explore the wider Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The ancient Roman town of Cirencester, known as the "Capital of the Cotswolds" is only five miles away, with an excellent choice of places to eat, drink and shop. Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Camden, Broadway, and the famous Westonbirt Arboretum near Tetbury are all also within a short drive.

You'll love your time at the Cotswold Water Park in Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, and understand why families make it their choice of holiday destination year after year. The house is supremely comfortable, the onsite amenities are excellent, and you are well-located for exploring the Cotswolds and this beautiful part of Central England.
