2018 Waterside Breaks in England’s other Lake District: The Cotswolds!

Which corner of England boasts 150 lakes, a host of outdoor activities and is also a haven for wildlife?  It’s not Cumbria. It’s not Norfolk. England’s other Lake District is a peaceful spot on the Gloucestershire/Wiltshire border known as the Cotswold Water Park! is the leading portal for booking short breaks and longer holidays in the Cotswold Water Park region, but the company says this amazing destination is misunderstood by those who have not yet visited.

“Some people think this wonderful location is a water themed holiday park where all the rides are watery ones, which could not be further from the truth,” says managing director Tim Wells.

“In fact the Cotswold Water Park covers forty square miles of countryside and as well as 150 lakes, includes three Country Parks and pretty villages like South Cerney and Ashton Keynes. There are over 100kms of public footpaths, cycle trails, a man-made beach, water-sports and outdoor activities galore, plus a superb variety of holiday accommodation,” says Tim.

High quality holiday home developments range from contemporary glass-fronted lodges to New England-style townhouses and welcoming Scandi-style lodges.  All holiday homes have one thing in common: close proximity to the water. Most properties enjoy lake views, while some are right beside, or even over-hanging a lake!

Depending on which lakeside development is chosen, rental may include membership of facilities such as a spa, swimming pool, children’s playground and club-style restaurant. Others are perfect for anglers, being on well-stocked fishing lakes. Many holiday homes are dog-friendly.

Facilities open to all include the Gateway Centre cafe and Lakeside Pizzeria & Gelato, as well as bars, restaurants and leisure options at a hotel within the Park, plus country pubs in surrounding villages.

Many of the park’s public spaces are managed by the Cotswold Water Park Trust, which also looks after five nature reserves in the park. Seasonal highlights thousands of over-wintering water-birds, spring-flowering fritillaries and glittering dragonflies in summer.

Anyone – especially families – looking for a 2018 holiday will find the perfect property at which offers dozens of holiday homes across the Cotswold Water Park region.

“Our experience – and the fact that we offer such a range of properties across the whole region – helps us to make unbiased recommendations, matching the right holiday home to each enquirer,” says Tim.

Five Waterside holiday homes to book for 2018 – or miss out!

The estate agent’s mantra “location, location, location” means just as much in the world of holiday home rental.  According to specialist booking agency Waterside Breaks, the nearer a property is to the water, the quicker it books!

“2018 sales are already 15% up,” says director Tim Wells, “and July and August at certain properties book 12 months ahead.”

It is not all about the seaside: in addition to around 12,000 kms of coast, Britain has at least 40,000 lakes and un-counted miles of rivers from the mighty River Severn to babbling streams.

“The sight and sound of water adds a whole new dimension to a holiday in Britain, and it’s no wonder that our best-located holiday homes are in such demand,” adds Tim.

Waterside Breaks’ most in-demand properties for 2018 include:

Waters Edge Malachite  This luxury lodge has uninterrupted views across a 28-acre private lake in the heart of the amazing Cotswold Water Park. The fabulous contemporary accommodation has two double bedrooms and a four-bedded family room. The over-water deck features a plunge pool. 2018 weeks from £1,475; weekends from £1,082

Waterfall Lodge  Not only does this three-bedroom luxury ‘log cabin’ style home overlook Loch Tay, not only is there a hot tub, sauna and log-burning stove, but it sits beside a waterfall which drops into a natural plunge pool, accessed by steps from the balcony.  Set on a private Highland estate with a host of outdoor activities available, all this is less than two hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh. 2018 weeks from £1,115; weekends from £825.

The Dell  Perched at the top of Tregonhawke Cliff overlooking Cornwall’s Whitsand Bay, The Dell is a romantic bolt-hole with jaw-dropping sea views and simple but stylish open-plan living.  Accessed by 16 steps from the car park above, this is a real ‘away from it all’ coastal retreat for year-round escapes. 2018 weeks from £760; weekends from £449.

Waters Edge Boathouse  This cool ‘cabin’ on charming Rudyard Lake has been transformed to offer contemporary open-plan living for up to six people.  The hey-day of this little-known lake on the edge of the Peak District was the 19th century and Rudyard Kipling was named after it. Today there’s a hot tub on the balcony, and canoes to launch from the Boathouse’s own pontoon. 2018 weeks from £1,375; weekends from £795.

Coot Cottage  Built beside the River Bure in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, Coot Cottage comes with free use of a motor cruiser for great days out on the Broads (except during the six peak weeks of summer, when a discount on cruiser hire is offered). This upside-down holiday home has balcony to make the most of views over Daisy Broad.  Four bedrooms.  2018 weeks from £709; weekends from £548.
