Local Attractions

Getting out & about whilst at Wildmoor Waters

Wildmoor Waters provides a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Cotswold villages of Stow on the Wold, Moreton in the Marsh, Burford and Chipping Camden amongst many others.

There are also about 20 Wildlife Trust reserves in Gloucestershire (east of the River Severn) and a further 30 in Wiltshire.

Wildmoor Waters is a beautiful lake on the edge of the picturesque village of South Cerney. There are some lovely circular walks you can do from here and spot the local wildlife whilst out and about. This area is famous for Nightingales in May, big flocks of starlings in winter plus hosts of other birds and waterfowl. At Wildmoor we have spotted around 70 different species of birds.

For further information about wildlife in the area, see Wiltshire Wildlife Trust  www.wiltshirewildlife.org and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust www.gloucestershirewildlifetrust.co.uk. There are also a number of RSPB Reserves close by.
