Beautiful, Luxurious and relaxing.
Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful home. The house was absolutely faultless. It was spotless and so well equipped. Can see there has been no cut corners and the house has been well maintained.
Luxury is the only word that springs to mind. The beds were very comfy and quality linen used.
Nice and spacious with the added benefit of a balcony looking out on to a peaceful lake.
Houses are nicely spaced apart too.
There was plenty to do in the house and on the site. My children loved exploring.
The spa was lovely. Very clean and welcoming. Pool table went down a treat for my children.
Booking was easy and straight forward and responses to emails were very quick.
We were very sad to be leaving and will hopefully be visiting again soon.
Luxurious accommodation in beautiful setting
I stayed at this property as part of a group of seven. Communication/information from the owner/her staff was excellent. The property will not disappoint; every last detail has been considered and no expense spared (Sky Sport/Apple TV/DVD/cinema screen/fancy coffee machine/canoes/luxurious soaps/books/spa bath/magazines...) Each room is made up to a very high standard and the communal areas are vast and stylishly decorated. The decking overlooking the lake is wonderful (particularly when the sun is out) and the properties are spaced far enough apfart to provide for privacy. The resort includes boating facilities, tennis courts, a small football pitch and playgrounds etc. for children. There is a spa, although we did not have a chance to use. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to a family or a group of friends meeting up for a relaxing break and/or outdoor activities.

April 2008 - Online magazine has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswolds is 2nd Place!
The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswolds region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.
Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic
Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency
