There are countless ways to take to the water at the Lakes by yoo. Choose canoeing and you’ll see the wildlife and unique Cotswold reed beds up close. A leisurely paddle will take you past swans, tufted ducks, water voles, heron and all the other aquatic animals and birds that make the estate so special.
