Overview

About the property

Lovely lake-side lodge in South Cerney, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - Stunning Lake-side lodge in a unique, peaceful location and ideal for all age groups.

A beautiful lodge located at the end of Spring Lake where the ducks congregate and swans nest. This lodge offers tranquility and convenience. Enjoy the activities available within the Water Park and explore the delights of the numerous nearby picturesque Cotswold villages. Visit Bourton-on-the Water (with a high street running parallel to low bridges over the river Windrush) or Ashton Keynes (boasting more bridges over the Thames than London) to name just a couple. Take a trip to the nearby spa town of Cheltenham, famous for its festival and Gold Cup race course, or Swindon with its large designer outlet mall.

Watch, or try for yourself, the water-skiing and inflatable rides on Spring Lake or enjoy some of the other outdoor activities available at the water park - tennis, sailing, cable wake-boarding, kayaking, horse riding, boat hire, bird watching - to name just a few. Keynes Park Country Club has a man-made beach and fishing lakes suitable for fly or course fishing.

For cyclists and walkers alike, the many miles of cycle-track offer a means of exploring secluded villages and country pubs serving local dishes.

The Roman town of Cirencester with it's cathedral-like parish church - one of the largest in England - is just a few miles away and offers a variety of specialist shops, street markets and the

For fish lovers, a visit to the nearby Bibury trout village is a must. Here you can have a picnic, buy (or catch your own) fresh trout or simply wander between the trout pens and feed the fish!

For those who don't want to cook, the Lakeside brasserie which is just a short walk from the Lodge, serves a wide range of snacks and meals which can be enjoyed on the waterside deck or inside watching sport on the numerous TVs. The Boathouse pub and nearby hotel with spa and pampering treatments available to non-residents, are located close-by.

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

Loved our Holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we wanted and more. House is stunning and has everything you could need and want. Kids loved the swans and ducks. There are lots of things to do and see. Took kids to Legoland and a Zoo while we were there. Also had plenty BBQ's while looking over the lake. I would recommend this property, and we are looking to book it again for next year.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were completely and utterly bowled over by this property. Not just for the stunning views and and amazing sunsets we experienced, but also the beautiful interior which made our stay feel very homely for the week. We were very lucky with the weather which made it possible for us to sit out on the decking most evenings for dinner and drinks (and a lovely complementary bottle of wine) and enjoy our surroundings. My 2 year old son loved waking up to the ducks and beautiful swans (along with 5 babies) every morning and watching the water skiers on the lake. There's so much to do in the area and Cirencester town is only a short drive away. We really can't wait to book again

Location

Travel:

The Cotswolds Water Park is only 15 minutes from the M4 motorway and within easy driving distance of London, the Midlands, Bristol and the West Country and is a convenient, accessible and relaxing location for a weekend escape or midweek break.

Distances:

The village of Cirencester (approximately 5 miles away) offers a variety of specialist shops, street markets and the cathedral-like parish church which is one of the largest in England.

A large Tesco store is located on the outskirts of Cirencester. There is a local convenience shop in South Cerney village which is a short drive from the lodge.
