Fantastic house that met our needs for an amazing fun packed weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous. The decor is bright and a tad eccentric in places, which suited us! The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, crockery, pots, pans basically everything you could need or want. The view is amazing and the only fault is the noise carrying not just in the house but from next door.

A brilliant property - marvellous views - plenty to do

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our party - twelve of us aged from 5 months to 70 (just!). The house was very well equipped with plenty of everything you could need - including champagne flutes! Some properties we have rented in the past have barely had enough of anything but that was definitely not the case here. The lay out of the bedrooms worked very well for us and the top floor never felt crowded with us all up there. The weather was kind and we made good use of the balconies and the view of the nature reserve lake was stunning! So relaxing!

There was plenty for all tastes to do - the children lived in the pools with mums and granny joining in - the pools never seemed crowded. Others of the party so inclined used the gym facilities and the 5km run. The shop was helpful and clean. We did have to wait rather awhile for our take away on Friday evening but we would know another time to enquire earlier.

The unanimous view of the party was 'a great find - we want to come back'!

The Cotswolds region

Online magazine AskMen com 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 PlaceThe 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

architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford-upon-Avon is just over 1 hour away.For those looking for a bargain, Bicester Village offers most sought-after brands at prices reduced by up to 60%
