Perched on the water’s edge, Shelduck Lodge is a chic New England-style retreat sleeping four plus two. With a pretty clapper board-style exterior, the fantastic water-front setting makes a brilliant first impression, whilst the convenience of the location within steps of a family-friendly lakeside bar, brasserie, gym and a great children’s play area come a close second.
This contemporary and charming lodge offers light bright interiors and panoramic lake views from inside and out. Downstairs, its open plan living and dining area flows out onto a private deck via French doors – the perfect spot for sizzling steaks on the barbecue or simply sitting back to enjoy lakeside life. There is also a fully equipped kitchen and handy downstairs shower room.
Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with a full length window overlooking the lake, allowing you the same stunning views, a further double bedroom with an additional futon and a family bathroom.
Located on Spring Lake, our lake house has prime position in the Cotswold Water Park, one of the best kept secrets of Gloucestershire! One of 150 lakes in an area the size of Jersey, there’s so much to explore and something for everyone.
Like the name suggests, from the deck you can feed the resident ducks that are very friendly. And you may be lucky enough to spot woodpeckers, herons and great crested grebes as well.
Watersports, activities, great eateries, walking, history and culture are just some of the things you will find nearby. The fact that there’s a spa, golf course, water sports centre, bike hire and routes, plus a choice of restaurants and pubs, within a short, scenic walk really sets it apart. Although, for most young families, the fact that the UK’s largest inland beach with a purpose built toddler paddling and playground area is within a 10-15 minute stroll is the icing on the cake.
If you can tear yourselves away, Shelduck Lodge is ideally situated too for exploring the towns and villages of the beautiful Cotswolds region. The well-known quintessential English villages of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Moreton-in-the-Marsh, are all within easy reach and make a great day out.
Located just over an hour from London, it’s the ideal place for families or a group of friends to spend time together at any time of the year. And, for larger groups of up to 30 guests, Shelduck Lodge can be booked with our other lake houses which are all within 200 yards of each other.
