About The Owner

Neil and I Co-own the Lodge, purchased following our recent retirement as Police Officers with Wiltshire Police, now looking forward to adopting a slower pace of life, spending more time with our families.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2016

Why The Owner chose Ashton Keynes

The Spring Lake site site has a lovely community feel to it, all the lodges are uniform in appearance, they border only one side of the lake and all have large south facing patio decks. For safety, a 10 mph speed limit operates on site and we have private security patrols.

Beautiful property, everything you could need and more. Situated right on the lake, lovely.

  • 5 of 5

Really impressed with the property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Back of lodge has a really great deck that looks out over the lake. Very peaceful, great for relaxing in front of the wood burner in the evenings. Lots of things to do locally, historical places of interest, good cycle trail and water sports on your doorstep. Would definitely come and stay again. The Brasserie Restaurant on site serves really great food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Lovely property in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic site with plenty to do in lovely idyllic settings. The property is everything you could want in a holiday cottage with access out onto a decking with a lake a stones throw away. The property itself is well equipped and very comfortable. A welcome pack on arrival is a lovely finishing touch. Wish we could have spent more time there as there was lots we missed. Thank you

Just back from a 3 night stay in this gorgoeus little lake house. House was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The communication with the owner Andrew was excellent. My kids loved the water sports that were available on the lake. We will definatly be returning again soon.

Lovely, clean tidy home with everything you need on holiday

  • 5 of 5

Plenty to do within walking distance or a short car trip. The Eliot Arms in village was welcoming with great food.

Nice to sit on patio watching water skiing and activities on lake along with the swans and ducks popping up to say hello. Would definitely recommend and my gang can't wait to return
