Simply Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Superb location. All is just as you see from the pictures. Ducks, swans and the cygnets so close were lovely. Lodge has everything needed for a relaxing holiday and the welcome gifts were well appreciated. Booking very easy and hosts happy to help with questions and general information.

Peaceful setting, lovely view

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed for our stay, the view from the deck is lovely. Perfect from morning breakfast to your evening glass of wine. There is loads to do in the area and the owners have supplied plenty of leaflets for ideas.

The wifi if you need it works well, we didn't use the little club house but it is there of you want to. `I was happy watching the water skiers on the lake from the deck.

We would definitely go back.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the lake view and watching the water activities right outside the windows. The double doors allowed us to bring in some cooler air as it was lovely and hot outside. Our kids 5 years and 7 months loved feeding the ducks and swans.

Any issues we did have were dealt with very well. The internet went out for us which we were unable to resolve with the help provided and a few items that need repairing or replacing which couldn't take place before our take over but other than this it was a very good.

We would recommend.

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 1 week and loved the setting, great views, so peaceful and quiet. The booking process was very easy and the property was as expected - the deck is lovely for enjoying a nice meal outside, we had no problems with parking, and the house has everything you need for a week long stay.

A lovely home from home, highly recommend.

Lakeside lodge

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and excellently equipped lake side lodge. My husband and I stayed at this lodge with our two teenagers . The accommodation was ideal for our use and lots of things to keep us all entertained. Golf, gym, paddle boarding, water ski-ing and kyacking as well as only being a few miles from Cirencester for large supermarkets and quaint shops.

We had a fabulous time and a week was not enough. We had dinner on the deck every evening and the owners had provided all the little things that make such a difference to the start of your holiday, shower gel, toilet rolls, tea, coffee, milk and biscuits. Planned on doing one of the large jigsaws that was available but didn't have time !

I would highly recommend a stay at this property. We will definitely be back - thank you
