My husband and I are retired, but now spend our time renting this lodge in the Cotswolds and 2 apartments in Marbella

Rosemarie Watson purchased this house in 2003

Why Rosemarie Watson chose Cotswold district

It is the lovliest holiday destination...Englands best kept secret.Our lodge is close to Lake Windrush, so close you can sit in the hottub and watch the Swans and Kingfishers. Yet we are within an hour Oxford, Bath, Bristol and the Midlands.

The lodge is a true, home from home with everything you need for a relaxing...if you want...or energetic..if you must or family holiday or short break. We have waterskiing, cable skiing, golf, fishing, walking cycling, sailing swimming and a spa right on our doorstep.....You want to go shopping? Try Cirencester or Cheltenham, or one of the 2 Designer Outlet Malls within half an hour....and this lodge has the best position in the Park.

What makes this house unique

A turret house within a few feet of the Windrush Lake, packed with large carp ready for you to catch. We are set in a gated community of lodges covered by cctv and 24 security guards...perfect for a leisurely getaway for a romantic couple or young family.

Ideal retreat for exploring the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lodge 5 Windrush Lake to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. We had a wonderful weeked, the owners Rosemarie & Martin were there to meet and welcome us. The lodge had everything, it was so homely and comfortable. We were fortunate to have some wonderful weather and used the BBQ on two evenings after exploring the surrounding area and villages, and relaxed in the evenings in the lovely hot tub. If we return to the Cotswolds we will definitely be booking Lodge 5 again and highly recommend, we were three couples but the lodge is suitably equipped for a family Sept 2015

Extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property entirely lived up to our expectations for a relaxed holiday stay. The spacious, extremely comfortable lounge and dining area were perfect for us. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering, and the Lodge benefits from two comfortable bedrooms and two bathrooms and downstairs cloakroom. The attractive location on Windrush Lake was ideal for walks in and around the water park and a trip into Cheltenham. We would certainly recommend the property to friends and relatives. It was very helpful that the owners met us at the beginning and end of our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We do benefit from a super location on the lake, but also we are so close to many places of interest whether its quaint little villages, designer shopping, water sports (well perhaps not at Christmas) or Roman mosaics! I am a little surprised you didn't find the third bedroom but as the beds in the other two are SO comfortable, Guess there was no need to find it. We always meet our guests as it is so much easier if someone explains how the TV works and how to turn on the bubbles in the hottub! And tell them how to find a really good pub!

Family break.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was exactly as described and lived up to our high expectations. The owners met us on arrival and made us feel welcome. The hot tub was great for the kids especially in the rain! We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to send a lovely review Janet. We are so pleased you all enjoyed your stay despite the dreadful weather. But the hottub is good anyway....particularly nice to sit in it under the stars as you don't feel anything but the warm bubbling water....getting out isn't so funny though when there is frost around! It was lovely to have you all and we hope it was a relaxing time for you...and you left the lodge so very spotless...you can come again anytime!

A superb holiday in wonderful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

What a superb choice for a surprise 60th birthday trip for my husband. Right through from the original booking the owner (Rosemarie) was so very helpful and cupcakes and a bottle of bubbly for the birthday boy on arrival was much appreciated. The lodge is beautifully furnished on all three floors using top quality fixtures and fittings. It has everything you need for your holiday stay and was particularly well kitted out for my 11 month old granddaughter.

There was plenty to do in the area for the active amongst our group whilst others enjoyed chilling out in the wonderful hot tub even in the rain (complete with thunder and lightning)!

We became so relaxed that we began to feel the lodge was our second home and did not want to leave.

I am sure we will be making a return visit.

Owner's Response: Oh Chris, how lovely that you all enjoyed your stay. I know you were planning the big birthday for a long time so I am particularly thrilled that everything was as good as you hoped. We know a family holiday is always a very special time and we try very hard to get it right for you. The hot tub is new so we are pleased you enjoyed it...but not sure you should have been in it while there was lightening! We hope to see you all again and next time I guess Jess will be walking!
