Overview

About the property

Min. 2 nights. Situated on Spring Lake waterfront. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.

Welcome to Twitchers Lodge, our chic New England-style lakeside retreat with plenty of room for six. Located on Spring Lake, our lodge 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. Aptly named, birdwatchers will be in their element – you may be lucky enough to spot woodpeckers, herons and great crested grebes as well as the resident geese, ducks and swans. There is also an abundance of watersports, activities, great eateries, walking, history and culture to discover nearby.

Our chic New England-style lakeside retreat has so much to offer it that it is hard to know where to start! For most, the pretty clapper board-style exterior and fantastic water-front setting make a brilliant first impression, whilst the convenience of the location within steps of a family-friendly lakeside bar, brasserie and gym come a close second.

This contemporary lake house has been stylishly renovated to mirror its waterfront setting, offering panoramic views from inside and out. Downstairs, its open plan living area has a modern kitchen that flows through to the sitting room and out onto the private deck via French doors. A perfect spot for alfresco dining or simply to sit back and enjoy lakeside life! Upstairs a large master bedroom awaits with a full length window overlooking the lake, allowing you the same stunning views, plus two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Extra care has been taken for families, and you will find lots of special touches around the house if you are planning on taking the little ones.

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.

Situated on Spring Lake, Twitchers Lodge 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. Aptly named, ‘Twitchers’ will be in their element – you may be lucky enough to spot woodpeckers, herons and great crested grebes as well as the resident geese, ducks and swans. There is also an abundance of watersports, activities, great eateries, walking, history and culture to discover in easy range of Twitchers Lodge.

Along with its lakeside setting one of the house’s greatest assets is the amount that there is to see and do nearby for families and young children.

Within a minute’s stroll is the Lakeside Brassiere which boasts a family friendly sports bar, a relaxed family restaurant with a sun terrace overlooking the lake.

A fully air conditioned gym is located above the brasserie with a range of equipment. Should you be staying for a prolonged period a monthly membership can be purchased, but the gym also offers a highly reasonable single use fee option.

Within 50 metres of the lodge is a large children’s play area with climbing frame, monkey bars and fireman pole.

Lakeside Ski & Wake offer wakeboard and waterski lessons on the lake, plus sessions as well as fun rides for all the family on their ringos and other inflatables. These all prove irresistible to most families in the summer months, not least since thanks to a special skimmer board. From beginners to experts, everyone is welcome.

Next to the house is a small shingle beach area popular with the little ones for paddling. From the deck you can feed swans and ducks that are very friendly, but far enough away to stop little ones from feeling intimidated.

About a 5 minutes’ walk away, there’s a cable ski and a buzzing cafe bar reachable on pushchair friendly flat paths and roads.

Located opposite Spring Lake is the South Cerney Outdoor Education Centre which offers sailing, canoeing, and paddle boarding activities and courses.

Bike hire, angling and even the biggest inland beach in the UK are all within a mile or two.

Located on the other side of the Spine Road, a 10 minute walk from Spring Lake, is Spa 6, one of the premier spas in the Cotswolds, located within the Four Pillars Cotswold Water Park Hotel. Treatments include: Volcanic Hot Stone Back Massage, “Indian Sandalwood” Soothing Scalp Massage and “Exotic Orange Blossom Ritual” Face and Body Treatment. Not forgetting of course, a state-of-the-art gymnasium and hydrotherapy pool.

The house is also within walking distance to the local village of South Cerney which offers a number of local amenities including a selection of pubs, takeaways, village shops, post office and a hairdressers.

If you can tear yourselves away, Swan Lake 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.

Cirencester known as ‘The Capital of the Cotswolds’, is 4 miles away, giving easy access to excellent shopping, restaurants, entertainment, ancient buildings and museums. Cheltenham (20 miles), the most complete regency town in England, is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, Cheltenham hosts Festivals of Jazz, Classical Music, Science, Literature, Food & Drink.

Highgrove House, one of the homes of Prince Charles, is less than half an hour’s drive as is Westonbirt Arboretum, with its stunning new treetop walkway, the longest in the UK.

Appealing to children in particular, the nearby Cotswold Wildlife Park, the numerous attractions at Bourton-on-the-Water, and Cotswold Farm Park provide plentiful entertainment.

The cities of Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and Oxford are all under an hour’s drive away.

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 18 guests, Twitchers Lodge can be booked with Caterina Lake Lodge and Swan Lake Lodge as they are all within 200 yards of each other.
