The property was in a perfect location- south facing with view of windrush lake. The property was beautifully done out with everything we needed! Would definitely go back again.
The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was immaculately and tastefully furnished! The views over the lake were stunning! The location was close to many water sports and ideal for our family wedding in South Cerney!
Lovely house - beautifully kept and in an excellent location. Everything we needed for a lovely stay.
Had a lovely stay in this cottage in the Cotswold Water Park. The surroundings are beautiful and the cottage is a really lovely, welcoming place to stay. We had a lovely family Christmas there
Lovely comfortable house in a great location, beautiful lake views. Good outside activities, tennis, badminton, boules, playground, etc with inside small play area for toddlers and snooker, billiards and table football for older children. Lovely relaxing holiday and the children had a great time!
We enjoyed our holiday at 31 Little Maine very much. It was light, well decorated and clean (which for me is important - things like bathrooms). Unfortunately because of the wind and rain we were unable to use the patio area very much and some of the water sports we had booked were cancelled because of there weather but generally everything about the house and location was good. The service we had from Orion was very good and all ran very smoothly.
Had a lovely few days stay at Natterjack Lodge. Lodge is fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. Couldn't fault the cleanliness & furnishings. Will be back!
We enjoyed our stay it was lovely and will definitely be booking again. a bonus with great weather, lots of planes from the air show, beautiful place and lots to do .
We have stayed in the Cotswolds Water Park many times before and our stay this time was particularly enjoyable. Carpe Diem is very good quality accommodation, comprehensively kitted out and well placed to enjoy the activity facilities on site. We will be returning.
Great facilities in the accomodation & on site. Plenty to do in the local area & kids loved the treasure hunt!
The location is wonderful and the lake view is breathtaking, the pool too, is fantastic, however the lodge itself was a great disappointment. There was a state of the art music system, with speakers throughout the whole lodge-as you would expect in a 'luxury' accommodation- however it didn't work, nor did the replacement system, added to which there were wires sticking out of the walls. The bed in the downstairs bedroom was almost like sleeping on the floor, which made it impossible for my 95 year old father to use, nor could my wife who has mobility problems, so much for having a downstairs b...more
Everything was to a high expectation. Customer service was quick & friendly. Accommodation could not have been better. Absolutely fabulous. Would definitely book again.
We had a relaxing and well deserved holiday during July / August. Although the weather was unsettled we nonetheless made best use of the facilities. I played more tennis than I have in years. However, what has happened to the cricket net that was advertised? The closeness to the lakes for canoeing, kayaking, etc.was fantastic - just a short walk. Accommodation was clean and well equipped and in a good location. There was very little road noise.
It is quite a nice holiday let.would have liked a fishing swim nearer the home.There is a few things need doing inside the let,the fridge door scrapes on the wall before shutting,the washing machine was not level, it had the loudest cooker I've ever used.The tap in the bath cannot be turned on unless you are in the bath.try it
We had the most amazing peaceful holiday, it was like home from home, so comfy and quiet. You could not of asked for more within the property, even with games and dvds for the bad weather. The location was perfect and you could do as little or as much as you wanted in the area. Absolutely loved it and will definitely be returning.
The house was well equipped and located to provide a relaxed weekend for a multi aged group. Twin bedrooms slightly too small.
The location was beautiful with lovely views. The house was comfortable and very clean. Things to improve: hard uncomfortable pillows, I was unable to get washer dryer to dry, instructions would be useful. The towel rails didn't come on so on rainy days was difficult to dry things. The spa was fab and we enjoyed the restaurant. A great place for a holiday, we'll be back!
A pleasent stay in a comfortable cottage. Great view over the lake in a nice and quiet park. We had a good holiday!
Good location especially because it was the end of a terrace. Very well equipped with useful picnic/child's tableware. Good outside seating and sun umbrella.
The villa was amazing as was the support from the staff - nothing was too much trouble and actioned immediately
Amazing place, excellent for families and wonderful play area for kids of any age. House big enough to accommodate two families. Comfortable, clean and close to the places we were planning to see. Wonderful choice
Amazing holiday Great house in a fab location Very close to the tennis courts restaurant and spa facilities Lovely walks and you must rent out a canoe on the lake Bring your bikes!
Stayed the lodge for 6 nights. The lodge was very comfortable with all the required amenities. Being able to use the outdoor Jacuzzi was a bonus. Spent many of the evening relaxing on the balcony overlooking the lake and watch the birdlife. Truly wonderful stay. Will definitely come back again.
I love the Cotswolds & in particular the South Cotswolds lakes. Spring Lake is my favourite as it is a short walk to the Brassiere for a meal or a drink. The lodge was excellent in all respects with a great view over the lake & able to watch the water skiing. We are a couple in a 3 bedroom lodge with two friends joining us for one night so plenty of room & space etc. Having the additional shower room/WC downstairs was very useful. Did not cook anything in 5 days as plenty of places to eat around although ate 3 nights at the brassiere. Everything was great thank you very much. Tetbury, Stow, Bu...more
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Loved the fact that we were literally on top of the water. Our sons particularly enjoyed the water sports. The unit was very clean and had everything you need for a holiday. Would definitely go again.
Really enjoyed a short break at 89 Windrush Lake. It was a lovely house, very well fitted out and in a great setting overlooking the lake. There was plenty of room for 7 or 8 adults inside and out. The outside deck with its seating and BBQ was particularly brilliant as we were lucky with the weather. Had the weather been poor we would have made even more use of all the games supplied. Just wished there had been some table tennis bats and balls to take over and play on the table.
The property is quite tired and needs decorating. Everything is very basic. The dishwasher did not work .... I put new salts and rinse aid in and it still did not work. I also cleaned the filter and it still did not work. I do not expect to do this on my holidays! So all week we could not use the dishwasher and with 6 of us staying there we had a lot of pots to wash. The people in the property previously had obviously used the dishwasher so when we arrived all the pots, pans and cutlery were dirty and we had to wash before using. Location for fishing is really good.
This was our first time to the Cotswolds Water Park area and we would definitely recommend this as a holiday location to anyone. The cottage was nice and roomy and had everything we needed. There were some bikes available to use and tennis and table tennis equipment for use on the complex. The cottage was really well laid out and we loved getting the fire going in the evening. The swimming pool and sauna were only a short walk away and were never too busy when we went along. We hired the paddleboards and spent some time looking for beavers in the second lake which the kids really enjoyed. T...more
This was a beautifully located property right next to Howell's Mere, which is a smallish, very peaceful lake. The accommodation was mostly comfortable, and was clean and in good condition. Two of the bedrooms on the ground floor were en suite with a view over the lake and access to a large deck area. Unfortunately, the bedrooms were the only access to this area, which meant that everyone staying in the property had to walk through them whenever they wanted to sit on the deck. There was a further deck/balcony on the first floor, but this was very narrow and not very usable (though, bizarrely, t...more
The Location is well positioned in the Cotswolds. Close to lots of ameneties and there are also some very good walks within a few minutes of the property. The property itself is set on the lake with wonderfull views and easily accomodated the eight of us during the week Long stay. The kitchen, Lounge and Dining area are spacious enough for 8 People. Three of the bedrooms a good sizes and the master bedroom is very large. We all enjoyed our time during the week. My only criticism and disappointment was the description stated that fishing beside the house was possible. This was not the case whi...more
Our lodge wasn't quite ready upon arrival and we didn't get in until just after 3 even though we asked for early check in. However once in we were very pleased with the lodge which was clean and had all the essentials required (washing up liquid, cling film, salt etc). We had myself (Mum), my Mum and 2 kids so we used every bedroom which was perfect for us. The lodge had a lovely well kept garden with a playground close by and games room. There was a back gate walk to South Cerney but too far for young children (25 min). We found it was located to the main roads for exploring the Cotswolds. Th...more
The property was lovely, fitted out with everything we needed for a week long stay for 7 adults. Delighted to find additional bathroom (expected 3, had 4) which offered more privacy. Plenty of space and we'll equipped throughout. There were lots of cobwebs -inside and out! We had to clean both patios before we could sit out there as this was where we spent a lot of our time. Facilities on site were restricted as Spa being refurbished. Could not get any treatments all week although pool was available. "General store" very limited so had to shop off site. Restaurant food lovely. All in all...more
We rented 27 Clearwater for a November weekend to meet up with two other families. The house was lovely and the views from the windows were amazing. Lower Mill Estate is an absolutely brilliant place. Orion were fabulous at making us feel welcome, and the staff on Lower Mill were equally friendly and welcoming. If you are staying for just a weekend you don't need to leave - you can walk everywhere, go for long country walks, have a coffee or a swim.
We stayed for bank holiday weekend four adults and four children. Lovely house, very comfortable. Would be better if the windows had darker shades on as it was very bright in the mornings. Parking for the second car was also a problem. We were advised there were two spaces but when we arrived only one and the second car had to be parked quite for away in the overflow at park. There isn't any phone reception so you are asked to call on arrival but this is isn't possible. The maps aren't very easy to understand and difficult to locate things. Other than that it was a relaxing holiday and we h...more
The first view of Waters Edge lodges were disappointing, the cedar cladding has weathered on all lodges and now looks very dingy and unattractive. I know that cedar clad buildings do not need treating, but over time, they weather and discolour in different shades. I am therefore surprised that this has been allowed to happen. If they had been treated with a UV clear wood preservative it would have kept the cladding looking like new. The cleanliness of the lodge was good but let down by high level cobwebs with days, if not weeks, of spider catches attached. The sofa against the kitchen unit n...more
Cottage very comfortable and well equipped, especially helpful having tennis and table tennis gear. Really useful having washing machine and tumble dryer. Lovely, peaceful location, within walking distance of activity centres. Good facilities on site, as in pool tables, tennis courts etc. Lots to explore in local area. Would recommend.
The unit itself had everything you would require staying in a house. I have few suggestions that you might like to take on board. 1. There was no safe for valuables i.e. passports, valuables. 2. The front door could benefit from a good locking system, everywhere in the house good security locks, felt very vulnerable as the door was glass and had only a sheer curtain, felt I was in a gold fish bowl. Some nights spent the night on the couch as there was a lot of foot steps which I really felt as though they were in the unit. The grounds are beautiful and the wild life delightful, I wo...more
The property was very clean and comfortable - the only disappointment for me was that you could not see across the lake from the property. The growth of plants was really high and obstructed the view. I was so looking forward to seeing the wildlife on the lake. It was explained that the growth could not be cut back due to the birds etc. which I understand however I have to say it did spoil the holiday abit. There were very few places where you could actually sit by the lakes or walk close to them. We wanted to do some fishing however there were only a couple of swims on the lake behind us an...more
A very comfortable cottage on a beautiful site. The pool was very popular with the teenagers! Just wish weather had been kinder so we could've seen more of the nature and scenery.
