ND 23 Hoburne Holiday Park is a luxurious caravan in a fantastic location beside the water at the very popular Cotswold Water Park. With three bedrooms and comfortable sofa-bed, there is space for up to eight guests, yet the layout makes it as ideal for couples escaping for a peaceful escape as it is for active families. Guests have access to a raft of onsite facilities that include fishing, cycling, walking, tennis, crazy golf, canoeing, an indoor swimming pool and a kids' club. Your perfect family holiday starts here!
The 40-square-mile Cotswold Water Park is carefully managed to protect the landscape while making it possible for people to enjoy. More than 150 lakes of varying sizes provide watersports a-plenty, with the caravan having a fishing pole directly outside. Guests can hire bicycles and with so much to do both indoors and out, it doesn't matter how fickle the British weather chooses to be because there is always fun to be had.
Cirencester is only three miles from the holiday park where, in addition to beautiful buildings and a busy Saturday market, there is everything from Roman ruins to modern cafes, shops and restaurants. Other local places to see include Ashton Keynes, the oldest settlement along the River Thames, historic Cricklade with 112-listed buildings and an array of independent shops and businesses, the Saxon town of South Cerney, and Somerford Keyes which is on the long-distance Thames Path footpath. Swindon is also within easy reach, offering not only a designer shopping outlet but also the very popular STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway; or venture further afield to the ancient Cotswolds villages and towns of Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water, The Slaughters and Stow-on-the-Wold.
ND 23 Hoburne Holiday Park is perfect for active families. The owners have made it very child-friendly with a secure deck, and a cot and highchair available on request, and the site has so much on offer that you won't hear the dreaded "I'm bored!" for the duration of your stay. Those who prefer a more relaxed holiday will appreciate the peaceful waterfront location, countryside walks, nearby golf course and space to sit with a favourite book.
