3 bedroom, 2 bathroom well equipped lodge with stunning lake views

Nutkin’s Nest is a recently refurbished New England Style lodge set on the edge of a wildlife lake in a tranquil setting within the Cotswold Water Park. Set in a beautiful location with something for everyone. Take advantage of the on-site facilities or just relax on the deck with a glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful views and the sun setting over the lake.


The Cotswold Water Park is Britains largest water park offering a wide range of activities to include boating, water skiing, fishing, cycling, walking, golf and horse riding.

Within easy reach of the motorway network, it’s an ideal place for a weekend break with lots to do during longer stays.

You will find sailing and windsurfing at the Cerney Outdoor Centre next to the complex and there is water-skiing lake and brasserie within half a mile.

Quality time with the family in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to spend some quality time with all the grown up family on a long weekend as we all have such busy lives. I picked this property as it was only an hour and a half drive from our real homes and the pictures looked fantastic as well as having enough space for us all under one roof (6 adults and 1 toddler). We were not disappointed the quality of the accommodation was superb, a great base for visiting the annual 'Cotswold Show' and within walking distance for trying out some water sports on the lakes (first time Stand Up Paddle boarders). The information pack covered everything and anything we could have possibly needed and the Wi-Fi coped well with all their devices. Overall it made for a stress free mini break as so much detail and thought meant that any usual problems that might of occurred were covered. Needless to say I would recommend it as a great place to stay and have in fact already been passing on the website details to some of my work colleagues who have taken an interest.
