About the property


Welcome to Bowmore Lodge, a luxury lakeside holiday home nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Just a 90-minute drive from London, Bowmore Lodge is situated on the exclusive Lakes by yoo near the town of Lechlade on Thames in Gloucestershire, England.

Bowmore Lodge was designed by Philippe Starck’s team with its interiors designed by the owner to create a relaxing and stylist environment. It is located in 650 acres of unspoilt Cotswold countryside amid six clear water lakes. South-facing on the estate’s largest lake, Bowmoor, every room offers breath-taking lakeside views.

Why Mark Hamilford chose Cotswold district

Bowmore Lodge is mainly our second home that we rent out occasionally. It is truly stunning and my wife Manuela and I fell in love with the Lakes when we came to stay with friends and immediately decided to buy a house there. Bowmore Lodge is also a show home for my wife who is a successful interior designer who has completed over 10 houses at the Lakes, so its important its always in top condition. One thing is for sure Bowmore Lodge is not your typical rental property!

The Lakes by Yoo is a paradise for outdoor adventure seekers. Within the estate are a wide range of activities available for resident’s exclusive use, the majority of which are complementary to Bowmore Lodge guests whilst staying at any of our Lakes by Yoo properties. Please note the spa and indoor swimming pool facilities are available to guests for an additional one off fee of £50 to cover guests for the duration of your stay (per household not per person).

The six clear water lakes are themselves the main draw for many, and offer a wide variety of water based activities. Enjoy sailing or windsurfing at the onsite sailing club. Visit the Fishing Hut along the river or on Huntsman Lake where you will find all you need to fish for Trout, Pike, Perch, Carp, Trench, and Breem with lessons available for those who need guidance, with a weekly BBQ in the summer months. Go canoeing alongside the resident wildlife and experience views from the water, or take a dip after catching some rays on the sandy beach.

Back on dry land you can explore the 650 acre estate along the 15km of walks, nature trails and cycle paths, with bike hire available on site. There are dedicated conservation areas, a Bird Hide and a Bee Bank to encourage as much wildlife as possible, and providing information and insights into The Lakes’ resident wildlife.

For those looking to pick up the pace, a zip wire runs across Warrens Cross Lake (open in the summer). There are tennis courts available all year round, and a mini football pitch to keep children of all ages entertained. A Tipi Village is available for a night camping under the stars, along with a pet hut, an adventure playground and a kids’ club for children.

Adjacent to the sandy beach is a picnic area overlooking Warrens Cross Lake, and there is an onsite Lakes Farm Shop with a wide range of produce sourced from local suppliers, plus a selection of hampers ideal for a picnic by the lake.

Of course you are not just limited to the activities available within The Lakes by Yoo, the Cotswolds offers some superb recreational opportunities, all of which can be arranged for you through the dedicated concierge service, such as:




Rally driving




Water polo

Water skiing

Horse riding


Clay Pigeon Shooting

Course fishing


Knee boarding
