Beautiful Country Escape

Quality in Tourism 5* Gold Award 2015

A perfect retreat overlooking the finest British countryside, this is a haven for anybody that is looking to really detach themselves from the hustle and bustle of their busy lives whilst experiencing Britain's finest.

If you are lucky enough to stay over a weekend - every Saturday there is a guests and residents BBQ! This is already paid for so please go and enjoy. You are welcome to bring your own food to BBQ after 7pm. Mikey will BBQ between 6pm-7pm the food supplied by The Lakes.

Local pubs within walking distance include The Swan at Southrop. Look out for Richard and Emma Keene’s Cotswold Premium Lager, sold by the keg to a handful of local pubs. Like most of the fantastic local produce here, the Keenes like to keep their lager seasonal – wheat beer in the spring and a darker ale for the winter months.

The nearest farm shop, and one of the areas best butchers is called Foxbury, just north of The Lakes.

Daylesford Organic, a few miles away, specialises in everything that is fresh, seasonal, local and organic; handmade cheeses, bread, pastries, chef’s dishes and kitchen garden produce. Locally produced organic apple juice is available to buy from Benson’s Farm which can be delivered by the case.

Trout and smoked fish products are available in nearby Northleach, where Col Valley Smokery still uses bespoke traditional methods and brick kilns and supplies top retailers including Harrods. Of course we also have our own smokery near the fishing hut.

Nearby Bamford Barn sells luxurious homeware and contemporary clothing, whilst Cotswold Woollen Weavers in Filkins have their own looms producing traditional tweeds – suits, jackets, and hats in bespoke colourways, plus a garden and cafe attached. Their quality is renowned and Olga Polizzi, sister of Rocco Forte uses them to supply blankets for their hotels.

Antiques hunting will take you right across the country, though some of the best dealers are concentrated in Burford and Stow on the Wold. Visit Cirencester for traditional crafts including glass blowing, pottery, and one of the Cotswolds’ oldest saddle makers, Sydney Free (sculpture image by Caroline Sharp, exhibiting at The New Brewery Arts, Cirencester).

Beautiful modern property in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We, 8 adults, stayed at this beautiful property in a secluded and safe area surrounded by stunning scenery and lakes. The house is stunning with all modern appliances and extras such as a working sauna and gorgeous views across the lakes.

During our stay a couple of toilets stopped working which, despite it being over the Christmas and New Year period was addressed immediately by the owner the management company. The property was immaculately clean and well laid out, with most of the bedrooms on the 1st floor.

The onsite spa consists of a pool, sauna and steam room. It was great to have this onsite but sadly the jacuzzi was cold and the pool, being communal, quite busy but that didn't put us off.

There is plenty of parking and it's lovely and quiet despite most houses seeming to be occupied during our stay.

We went for lovely walks and runs in the area and also to the recommended pubs which are a drive away. All in all I can't recommend this property enough, we will most definitely return!

Tip: if you get to pick your room, definitely go for the master bedroom- waking up to the sun rising over the lake is very special indeed and the bathroom is lovely too.

beautiful and spacious house, perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here as a group of friends leaving london for the weekend and it was perfect for us - i would highly recommend it. The rooms are clean, bright, and bigger than in the photos. We used the fireplace every night and the beds are really comfortable. A 10 minute walk away is a beautiful pool house that can be used in the afternoons. The landlord always responded very quickly so everything was smooth and problem free. On the ground floor is a huge open plan kitchen and living room - so perfect for cooking and hanging out together as a group. We were not very familiar with how to use such a high tech stove + hob so that took some time to figure out from the manual. There's also a lot of bugs outside at night because its on the water but they don't bite and there are insect screens on the windows. The view onto the lake is stunning and its worth the trip waking up to that view from the bedrooms upstairs.

Location

Car: recommended

The Lakes is set in the heart of the Cotswolds, between the towns of Lechlade on Thames and Fairford.

You have the classic British countryside on your doorstep, the estate provides access to a simpler rural life that revolves around charming local pubs, antique fairs and village fetes.

It is a food lovers paradise, a region where local produce is literally grown on your doorstep. Weekends spent browsing local farmers markets and farm shops replace the supermarket run and fresh produce can be delivered directly, probably by the butcher or cheese maker themselves.

There is so much to do in this beautiful area and to list just a few of the wonderful activities, there is: Ballooning, Gliding, Rally Driving, Polo, Shooting, Climbing, Water Polo, Bowling, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Course Fishing, Knee Boarding, Wake Boarding and many more. Whatever you are looking for, whether it's to be active or simply relax, this wonderful area will be sure to provide you with the perfect escape.
