About the Owner

We live in London with our two children. We both work and with two children life is busy! We love the city life, arts and culture but we also love long-walks and being out in nature. We felt it was important that our city kids got to enjoy the country life as well!

We had a great weekend in this cosy well equipped house. It is in a great location near amazing countryside & villages perfect for planning walks. The kitchen had everything we needed & more. We are planning to come back in the summer to enjoy more if the area & outdoor terrace.

Lovely waterside holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday home with views over the lake. It is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed - we felt so at home that we cancelled our dinner reservations as we just wanted to stay in! It made a great base for exploring the Cotswolds Way, and I look forward to trying the water sports centre next door on our next trip. Thanks for having us!

Very comfortable lakeside home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant family weekend in this comfortable and thoughtfully equipped home. Although the weather wasn't always lovely we explored the area, walked and fished! The Lego kept the youngest occupied happily, and several adults! We may well be back for more, thanks.

The property was in excellent condition throughout, fully meeting internet description.

  • 5 of 5

The house was in prime condition on arrival, with a well equipped kitchen and bathrooms . The children enjoyed all the outdoors and indoors games at their disposal.

We benefited from good weather which allowed us to visit at will some of Cotswold top spots.

We will certainly recommend this house to friends and will probably enquire about availability for ourselves in the future.

One suggestion: opaque curtains for the bedroom windows particularly the one on the rising sun side.

Finally thank you for the croissants.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your lovely comments and feedback, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay! Following your suggestion, we are looking into options to reduce the light coming in through the windows in the mornings. We look forward to hearing from you again, Michelle and Glenn

Location

From the Owner

We wanted an EASY holiday property: somewhere to get away to on weekends and holidays. That meant no 5.30am check-ins at airports and no 10-hour drives. In short a holiday which didn't leave you needing a holiday! We also wanted to expose our children to nature and the beauty of the English countryside. When we found Willow Lodge we knew we'd found the place. Space for the kids, nature all around, good locally sourced food and well located to explore the beautiful Cotswolds. We hope you have a very enjoyable stay

Facilities

From the Owner

The property has everything you need for a relaxing stay: a home from home. We've tried to cater for a range of interests with books, games and sports equipment to help you get the most out of the site's facilities. The back deck is a sun trap in the afternoon for lounging with a book, and the view across the lake is a great backdrop for a sundown drink or a barbeque. We have tried to provide information and recommendation on local attractions and some of our favorite restaurants, pubs, walks and places to visit to help you get the most from your stay.
