Walking In The Cotswold Water Park

Just south of Cirencester is the wonderful Cotswold Water Park, a great place to take the kids to spot wildlife and do a spot of walking. There are loads of wonderful circular walks around the CWP, ranging from 2km to 18km and longer. Routes are well marked and well maintained, and have the added bonus of mostly being flat! For details on walks go to: 


FREE Tennis Sessions

Every Saturday for the forseeable future (exluding Christmas and New Year) there are FREE coached tennis sessions at St Michaels Park. They run from 10.00am – 12noon and all ages are welcome. For more info go to


Watching The Wakeboarders

Its possible to do a wide range of watersports in South Cerney. However, if getting wet isn’t for you, then you can always just go along, watch and enjoy the sun and the atmosphere. Some of the lakes even let you have paddle in the water - provided you stay close to the shore.  WMKSki on Spine Road in South Cerney is a great place for this.
