- slow cooker was a great surprise. - we made cheese and ham toasties. - it as great that there were lots of over proof metal and glass dishes. - we did not get a chance to use the gas BBQ, but this is great to have the possibility to use. We really enjoyed out stay. Thank you
Lovely house - beautifully kept and in an excellent location. Everything we needed for a lovely stay.
House was beautiful, very comfortable and well equipped. We went specifically for fishing which was poor. Would be great if there was a clubhouse on site as you have to cross a very busy main road to get to the Boathouse & the brasserie was too far to walk with elderly parents.
a beautifull, clean, and comfort place. if the price was a little lower i would recomened. the seivice was ok too.
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
We stayed at this lodge just over a week ago and have to say it was absolutely beautiful. We were greeted with a member of the Orion team who was very friendly and helpful. The lodge was very clean, spacious, beautifully furnished and had gorgeous views of the lake. My husband is a very keen fisherman so was in his eliment and with having a young baby it was just perfect. We would definitely recommend to anyone who wanted a nice, relaxing family holiday.
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!
Lovely place and whatever was missing or not A1 was quickly rectified. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again one day
Beautiful property, extremely well equipped - great location close to water activities, outdoor shop and cafe. Lovely walks nearby. Highly recommended
First time in Cotswolds water park. This resort is beautifully maintained. Lovely accommodation and a very relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for the kids and dog. Great for fishing too. Will definitely be back
Loved our stay at Carpe Diem on Isis Lake. We hired it for a friends birthday and a bit of a "chilled" weekend away - it worked perfectly! The accommodation was seamless in terms of the booking, and entrance to it. Although the place is a little dated inside, it was clean, had plenty of space for 7 of us and had all of the facilities we needed. The location is right by EVERYTHING! We visited the Spa, literally over the road at the DeVere hotel, visited the wakeboarding lake and the water park. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend!
Every possible kitchen item needed was there. Fantastic location, right where the water skiers turn round.Some better than others!
The holiday worked really well for us. It was a good centre for our family reunion. The accommodation was very pleasant and comfortable. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the play areas and facilities. There were plenty of walks just outside the perimeter to exercise our dog. We enjoyed a family meal one evening in the Brasserie - the food and service were very good.
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.
We had a fantastic holiday at Spring lake,the lodge was beautiful& spotlessly clean! The view over the lake was stunning! And we loved watching the water skiing! Would definitely go back again!
The house was well equipped and located to provide a relaxed weekend for a multi aged group. Twin bedrooms slightly too small.
We enjoyed a fabulous week at Lower Mill Estate last week. Having stayed at Isis Lake last year we felt there was much more to do on-site this time, in particular the outdoor pool and the lovely Spa with it's indoor and outdoor pool and treatments. Ballihoo Cafe and the on-site shop were also great additions as was the cycle and water sport hire centre. One negative aspect was the presence of so many cars on-site, not all of whom adhere to the 10mph speed limit, so it's a consideration with young children. Dragonfly is a well-equipped, comfortable cottage with the advantage of a spacious gard...more
We were very fortunate to get availability for the Daffodils in August as we had left it quite late to book a summer break. Although the brochure does the best it can in providing a visual representation of the building and immediate surroundings but it didn't compare to the reality of it all. My family were taken away by the everything the house and setting provided; the girls and Grandad spent hours fishing from the veranda and when we managed to drag ourselves away from the place there was loads to do in the surrounding area; which is either a short drive or walk away. There were a cou...more
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
The villa was amazing as was the support from the staff - nothing was too much trouble and actioned immediately
Fantastic last minute 3 night break in an area we previously didn't know existed. House very well equipped, especially in the kitchen, where everything needed to cook for 7 was provided. The children loved the paddle boarding and the freedom of safe cycling and could not keep them out of the outdoor pool which is heated to the perfect temperature. The eldest 12 year old even took to plunging into the eco pool on a regular basis. Brrrrrrr..... Kids loved it so much we had to book for larger family holiday for a week next year, at a larger property.
This was a perfect break suitable for any age we went not for the abundance of water sports but for a relaxing stay on the water and we were in awe sat out on the decking we watched an abundance of wildlife and it was entertaining to see all the water sports you felt a million miles from hustle and bustle yet so much to do on your doorstep the home was so comfortable and I can't think of anything I would change so glad I found this as it's now going to be a break I take regularly thank you Orion
We went to fish and walk and we were happy with the location to do that, disappointed that we were not allowed to us the in site spa.
We had a nice stay at Casa de Lagos but were bit disappointed with a few things in the property. The toilet seat in the en suite was hanging off, the shower did not run away properly so we had to have quick showers before it overflowed, some of the curtains did not have enough rings on them so we're hanging off and there were only three seat pads for outside area seating and the table was a six seater, so overall we enjoyed our stay but a few things need sorting out, also there was a strong sewer smell when sitting on terrace.
I would recommend the Windrush Lake properties to anyone planning on staying at the Cotswold Water Park.
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.
I would recommend the Windrush Lake properties to anyone planning on staying at the Cotswold Water Park.
We had a lovely holiday with 3 generations. The location overlooking the lake was delightful and the use of the spa made it a very special holiday.
A great location and accommodation. Service was excellent and Orion staff were very efficient throughout. Would use again and have already recommended to family and friends.
The house was lovely. It suited my family and I very well. Although we had been told the building work on the neighbouring lake may affect our stay, we barely noticed it. The house was well equipped, the kitchen had most utensils that I have at home. It was a beautiful setting looking out over the lake, especially at sunset. The location was perfect, although you do need a car. We walked to Cricklade, the spa at the de vere hotel and the lakeside brassiere, but everywhere else was slightly too far to walk to. Bourton-on-the-water is definitely worth a visit as it's a beautiful village....more
Booked last minute we were very happy with the standard and comfort. We only used 2 of the 3 bedrooms so both ourselves and our daughter had ensuite bathrooms! The kitchen is small but has everything you need. Only downside for us was that the decking didn't get much sun - we like to sit out in an evening and the decking was in shade but might be good for those who prefer to be cooler.
Throughly enjoyed our stay, house was perfect for us 6 adults 2 Children 1 baby. Plenty of room so we wasn't in each other's way. Went to the pool which was lovely for the children, outside pool was warmer than the inside one. Restaurant was nice to sit and relax, food very good. First impression of the house I thought the bushes around it needed to be cut back, the downstairs front bedroom window was almost covered by the bushes. Plus as it was damp walking by on the path you couldn't help but brush by them. It was good to have 24 hours contact with Orian, not that we needed it but i...more
We had a lovely time. The Spa is excellent and used lots during our stay. Plenty to do locally - great base location.
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.
Lovely location with views over the lake.Small, friendly bar/restaurant.Perfect place for a short break.
We had a lovely week at the Cotswold Water Park very much helped by the wonderful weather (best bank holiday in 50 years). Howells Mere 47 is a nice, 3 storey, terraced house. It has everything you need for a comfortable but not luxurious holiday. However, having Artspa spa (fantastic indoor and outdoor pools and very nice treatment of rooms) passes adds that touch of luxury. The main bedroom is delightful, large with a 5 foot bed but the other bedrooms are tiny with very, very little space around the beds - fine if you know that's what you are getting. My 6'5" son, daughter in law and 6 mont...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.
House is in a nice location but I wouldn't call the shower a wet room and the cleaning needs to be better quite expensive for a 3 day break
