Watermark Holidays offer the ideal venue within the Cotswold Water Park for anyone looking to escape to the country. Relax in one of our luxury holiday cottages for a short break, week break or longer. It’s about leisurely strolls, pub lunches and sitting back watching the world go by. Or having an action-packed weekend on the lake full of water skiing, wake boarding, canoeing, sailing or windsurfing.

Or…if you love dry land, it’s about a few sets of tennis, a round or two of golf, a bit of clay pigeon shooting, cycling…or just sitting by the side of the lake with a rod and line and putting the world to rights. Forget needing a second holiday to recover from the first one. With Watermark, you simply won’t want the first one to end.

What’s Included

The Lakeside Brasserie

A family friendly venue right on the water’s edge. Their menu offers a selection of dishes using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Favourites include spicy sizzling fajitas, traditional wood fired Italian pizzas, sirloin steaks plus their fantastic Jesse Smith’s burgers with a variety of toppings!

During your holiday you will receive a 10% discount voucher which can be used on main meals for one visit. For the sports enthusiasts it’s good to know that they love their sport too and always have the matches on their big screens.
