Whether it’s been a lifelong yearning or you just fancy a change of scene, albeit from way up high, then you must give gliding a go. You can take a one day course and marvel at the country’s most beautiful landscapes and apparently flying’s not as tricky as you might think.
Thrilling times lie ahead at the Cotswold Water Park. Even if you’ve never set foot on a board before you’ll be guided by friendly and professional staff. If you just want to be pulled along on the board or fancy trying a couple of tricks, everyone will be cheering you on.
Set in the beauty of Cirencester Park, the club offers guests the perfect position to enjoy a picnic or a cracking four course lunch. Why not become a day member and learn how to play, then watch a professional match at one of the most historic and friendly polo clubs in the country.
Whatever your bendy ability you’ll find the course for you. Set in the 19th-century Watermoor Villa, so quiet not even the locals know it’s there. The studio is light, airy and well-equipped. You’ll also find a car park so you don’t need to arrive to your class feeling stressed.
Languishing beneath the stunning silhouette of the old barracks, is this pearl. Built in 1869, the pool is heated and full of spring water so you’ll feel virtuous even if just splashing about. There’s a paddling pool and slide to keep the little ones entertained as well as a welcome tuck shop.
Highly entertaining way to keep fit with friends whatever the age. You will naturally spend a little time rolling around on the floor like an upturned tortoise but when isn’t that fun? Perfect for kids and adults for 5,6 or 7 aside games. If footy’s not your thing then give bubble bulldog a go.
