Why Hoburne?

Where you see anything in red and with the above icon it means it has a link through to further information.

At Hoburne, we know what makes a holiday special. It’s not just the places you visit, the things you do, or the people you are with - it’s how all of this makes you feel that really makes the difference. That deeprooted, away from the hum-drum, all-out total fun and relaxation that all our guests experience when spending time with us.

Sunrise

With this in mind, we invest everything we have learned in our 100 years as a family run company in creating those wonderful feelings. Our unique park is set in a wonderful countryside location. Here, you’ll find our extensive choice of holiday homes are designed to suit every pocket. Then there’s our continued investment in facilities. Pools, playgrounds, cafés and restaurants are refreshed regularly (just like you will be!) And, with our people there to welcome you with a warm smile and help all the way, you’re guaranteed that unmistakable Hoburne holiday feeling every time you visit. No wonder many of our customers return year after year.

9.00am, breakfast

It’s how it makes you feel

11.00am, park fun

At 5am, the light changes from purple, to pink, to blue Sleepy heads are still dreaming of yesterday While we quietly begin to wake up the park. Soon, marmalade fingers leave a sticky trail From breakfast to the beach, to run, scream, laugh and Dig up an appetite for lunch Then out into the woods, on the bike and beyond, Leaving peace by the pool Where the sunbathers bask. Later, radiant and sparkling, the conversation flows, The music plays, the children dance Then all is safely gathered in, tidied up by hidden hands, Ready for another perfect day Because we are Hoburne, a great British holiday In one word.

Seasons to be cheerful

Winter

Life shouldn’t stand still just because it’s winter. In fact, our wonderful location is best placed to embrace this time of year. You will be inspired to wrap up and explore, go for long rewarding walks, or take a short drive to some fantastic places. And then back to the park, for a swim or a meal or some night time entertainment. With Hoburne, you don’t have to leave the country for a delightful winter escape.

Spring

Summer

Everything blossoms into life at this time of year… including you and your family! The warmer days and longer evenings mean you can get out and explore all that our wonderful location has to offer. And whether its enjoying outdoor sports or cycling back from a trip into the nearest town for the day, you’ll be able to do it all against a backdrop of bright, blooming perfection in Hoburne Cotswold.

A summer break is all about having fun, fun, fun in the sun. The time of year where your days are packed with sunbathing or sightseeing, long days out in the countryside or simply enjoying games in and around the pool. And later, reward yourself with a delicious meal and some fine entertainment. At Hoburne Cotswold there is so much to do and see… question is, what will you do first to create your perfect summer holiday?

5

Autumn

For some, this is the most beautiful time of the year. When you can walk, run or cycle through a cast of crunchy leaves, explore idyllic local areas, or even watch a wonderful sunset, with the season’s vibrant colours all around you. However you wish to spend your holiday, the great outdoors can be a huge part of it.

on the lakes It’s how it makes you feel...

A peaceful retreat nestled within some of Gloucestershire’s most stunning countryside. With beautiful views all around, and the tranquillity found beside each of the area’s 150 lakes, Hoburne Cotswold is a place surrounded by some true natural beauty.

The waters sparkle in a billion crystals of light Then reflect the stars of a black velvet night Where ripples whisper secrets across the deep And play the lullaby that helps you drift into sleep

Hoburne Cotswold

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating Based on 521 Reviews

Cirencester, Gloucestershire

Your Hoburne holiday is made of this... Hoburne Cotswolds has been lovingly created around four lakes, where you can fish and gently cruise around in pedalos. But it doesn’t stop there, because surrounding our park is 65 acres of prime water park. And it’s here where things can get really interesting, with canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding. All-out, fresh water fun. The beautiful area also beckons you to walk and cycle and explore the attractive nearby towns and villages, all in the knowledge that your Hoburne base is perfect to come back to and enjoy all that it offers. Great food, entertainment and fun in the inviting clubhouse. Or simply relax in your holiday home, where the gentle ripple of the water takes you miles away from everything.

It’s how it makes you feel

Just beyond the park… Cotswold Water Park

The lapping of the lakes Natures alarm clock Less than a stone skim away Where sharp-eyed anglers Wait for a pull on the line Sunrise to sundown Where boats and pedalos Make the most of messing about on the water Sun out or sun in Where the view Whichever way you look Is a perfect storm Of peaceful yet playful Steady yet sprightly Tranquil yet tireless Colours that can’t be watered down Because this is the Cotswolds Where you’re never in the same boat. 13

Family-friendly park and accommodation

More than just fun on the water, you’ll find cycling trails, picturesque walking routes and a high ropes aerial adventure for the truly brave!

Cotswold Country Park & Beach With its man-made family beach, swan pedalos and wooded walking trails, you can visit beach and country all in one place.

Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens 160 acres of beautiful parkland where you can watch rhinos graze on the Manor House lawns, get eye-to-eye with giraffes, or ride the park’s narrow-gauge railway.

There is something for everyone, as active or as relaxed as you want
