Overview

About the property

Min. 2 nights. Waterfront house with views of Isis Lake. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Welcome to The Turret, our chic New England-style three storey retreat with plenty of room for six. Located within the gated community of the Isis and Windrush lakes in landscaped surroundings overlooking three natural lakes, The Turret has prime position in the Cotswold Water Park.

There is a range of free facilities and activities available on the Isis & Windrush development making it ideal for families with children of all ages. Three all weather tennis courts (one floodlit), a children’s adventure playground, football goals, croquet, table tennis, boule and an indoor games room with pool table, table football and video games offer something for everyone at any time of the year.

Our chic New England-style lakeside retreat has so much to offer it that it is hard to know where to start! The pretty clapper board-style exterior and fantastic setting make a brilliant first impression and the wraparound decking with plenty of space for sitting out and enjoying the views over gardens and lakes come a close second.

Furnished to a high standard The Turret offers a spacious open plan octagonal living/dining room with three sets of double doors leading out to the wraparound deck with outdoor furniture and gas barbecue and views over the areas of green and the lake beyond. On the first floor is a large, triple aspect master bedroom with views over the lakes and a luxury en suite shower room. The family bathroom is also on this floor. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms which again enjoy stunning views – one is a comfortable double whilst the other is arranged with bunk beds, making this holiday cottage ideal for up to four adults and two children.

The light bright interiors with family-friendly luxuries are added bonuses, whilst 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.
