About Glenn Corney

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!

Glenn Corney purchased this house in 2014

Why Glenn Corney chose Cotswold district

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

What makes this house unique

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.

Cosy and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two weeks at this beautiful lakeside lodge, furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen was well equipt, the beds and sofas very comfortable, and our four year old son enjoyed the Lego, children's books and PS3. The location was perfect- close to lots of pretty villages and a town (Cirencester) which had all we needed.

We had an issue with the heating which the owners sorted out for us quickly and effectively thank goodness as the temperature was 0 degrees on arrival!

We would recommend this lodge for families and singletons alike, and hope we will be able to stay there again. The Daniels family :)

A most beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well presented, clean and homely with everything you need for your stay. Sofas and beds were comfortable and the view on to the lake wonderful to look at over breakfast.

Lots of local cycling took us to picturesque local villages with great cafes for tea stops. The park was peaceful and the presence of a gatekeeper gave peace of mind. We would like to go back in the summer and will definitely stay again.

Beautiful home with everything you need for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have visited Cotswolds water park having previously stayed on windrush lake. Willow lodge is the nicest house and has everything you need, books games maps and handy tips for local places. We had a very relaxing break at New Years weekend and everything about the lodge was perfect for our family of six couldn't have wished for anything more

Very pleasant surroundings, both site and cottage. In middle of countryside, but in easy reach of motorway and shops. Well appointed, clean cottage.

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!
