Beautifully equipped home - in idyllic setting - enhanced by perfect lake weather! Big plus for us was 4 double rooms as 4 couples, many other properties have twins or bunks in 1/2 of the rooms. Fantastic there was also a single in the office so my daughter could join us for one night. Very impressed with how the home was equipped. Have requested a pancake skillet like theirs for Xmas!!! Pool table got used every day, Had 16 guests join us over the 4 days (a few each day) so was biggest brightest birthday celebration ever! Will be very hard to match up to.
Great stay couldn’t ask for anything more. Would recommend to friends and would come again. Thank you
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 were staying in Howells Mere 33 and absolutely loved our stay. The home is well-equipped, and has fantastic views over Howells Mere lake from the living area. We noticed that some of the other properties on the same lake had smaller upstairs balconies, not large enough for dining, but number 33 had a large balcony, and we loved dining out there. Such a relaxing place to stay and watch the world go by (or perhaps, more accurately, watch people fall off their paddle boards). The complex is lovely, and very well set out. We used the outdoor pool every day, which the children loved. We'd hav...more
We arranged for our daughters to get together for a weekend after their exams. This was an ideal location to relax and unwind. The property itself was lovely and clean with everything you needed. Lots of outdoor space to walk, play and just sit and relax The kayaking and canoeing was just round the corner. We all had a great time
Great place, amazing property and we had a great weekend. Well equipped and clean. Lovely place and surrounding walks.
The place is situated in a wonderfully remote area well maintained with lush greens. Loved every sec
Beautiful property overlooking the lakes. Local area very scenic. Property was nice and clean, very homely, well equiped and spacious. The only negative was the weather, but we did have some sunny days. Would certainly go again
The lodge is really homely and cosy and has everything that you need. This is our second time at the water park and will definitely be back!
We took food, drink and games with us and it was so good, we didn't leave the lodge all weekend. Great place to chill and watch the wildlife swim and fly past or quack at your door.
The one issue needing attention is the drain in the master bedroom.it wasn’t cleaned out and as a result the water did t drain away quick enough, so with a shallow shower tray you could only shower for a few minutes without having to turn it off for fear of flooding the bathroom. With slow water drainage you also get a very very slippy shower which is quite dangerous. Just needs a good deep clean to remove build up.
We were a party of 10 staying for a long weekend to celebrate my father’s 80th. The house is in a perfect location backing onto a lake and close to the shop and spa. It is really well appointed and works well for 10 people. Just be aware that the majority of the bedrooms are on the ground floor as you come in and the living space is on the middle floor. The resort is rather more densely populated than we expected so don’t expect to feel away from it all as you are surrounded by other properties. You must book ahead to do water activities etc. All in all we had a great weekend and the house su...more
Great location for the various activities on the lakes surrounding the complex, most of which are walking distance. Lots of activities on the complex to keep you all busy. Only criticism is the road noise from the A roads that’s constant all day.
We had a great family stay for a long weekend, with 3 families spread across 2 properties. The setting is fantastic, with lovely grounds to walk around, pretty lakes and the ability to kayak/paddleboard in one lake. The kids had a brilliant time and spent hours in the play area, which was less than 100m from the house. Would definitely stay again
We spent a fab week paddleboarding and exploring the area. The house was well equipped, clean and in a superb location. Plenty of space and lots to do both in and outdoors. The children (11 & 15) loved being able to use the lake freely whilst the grown ups could supervise from the veranda. Peaceful except for a little road noise on wet days and nights.
Lovely place, well appointed and comfortable, great area for walking and ideal base for days out in the Cotswolds.
We had a very good stay at Spring Lake 51. Especially the lounge area on the patio was a big hit with the nice weather we experienced. The house is well equipped with fast Wifi, large smart TV and even a PlayStation Pro. Very popular when travelling with two teens. Nice kitchen with all you need for self catering. The fridge space is somewhat limited. The location is great and a very good base for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds. Driving to Stonehenge took less than 1,5 hours. The activities on the lake runs from 8-9 AM to roughly 8 PM and does create some noise. We knew this before arrivi...more
We stayed at Meadow Lark in Aug 2020 for a week. Our party included 5 adults and 3 children below the age of 7. What a stunning house in a stunning and convenient location! The house is modern and comfortable, well maintained and clean. The kitchen is well equipped with a full height fridge freezer, a choice of coffee making facilities inc a cafetière, Tassimo and filter machine and all sorts of other paraphernalia that you don’t often find in a holiday rental. The board games under the stairs were an unexpected but welcome surprise. The kids particularly loved the deck overlooking the...more
Such an amazing house, set opposite the lake, so peaceful and relaxing. Loved waking up to the view of the lake, with all the ducks outside to greet us. We walked around most of the lakes nearby, these were beautiful, seeing all the wildlife. The house is fully equipped and we can’t wait to book this property again. Very spacious, we didn’t want to leave. Thank you.
We really enjoyed staying at the property. The house was in a immaculate condition On arrival and the location at the end of the lake was perfect and quiet. We will use Orion holiday again.
The house was well equipped and located to provide a relaxed weekend for a multi aged group. Twin bedrooms slightly too small.
House was fantastic as always. We love staying here. Great layout with a wonderful deck looking onto the lake. Very comfortable for all five of us. Thank you.
Lovely setting for these villas. My son and his wife enjoyed paddle boarding every day. Hired electric bikes and explored some of the lovely villages. Our hot tub suddenly stopped working, Orion holidays sorted the problem very promptly. Excellent service.
We had a great, much needed,break.The property was fabulous and the location wonderful. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
What a place to stay and location was truly amazing, we will most defiantly be returning for another amazing weekend.
All of the family, grandparent, son and daughter-in-law, grandsons thoroughly unjoyed the stay, conditions and surrounding area. Fishing was excellent, so to were the games facilities. Local food was very good in pubs restaurants, Summer lake .brassiere visited many times. All round great time!!!!!!
A really great few days, spent in a lovely house. The house has everything you could need and the description on the website is accurate.
The property is lovely, well furnished,in a beautiful location and has all the domestic facilities for a home stay type of break. Very close to the spa and Balihoo Bar Restaurant though we only used the garden facilities at Balihoo. Also not far to the fishing lakes that my husband used but didn’t catch anything! No immediate parking outside but only a short walk to the car park, though as we were in our 70s we brought a folding porters trolley to help with the loads.
We spent 4 days at Tide Cottage. The location is great and the property was reasonably well equipped. The weather wasn’t too kind to us but still plenty to do. We have already booked to return next year albeit to a different cottage.
We looked the fact the poor weather didn't stop us enjoying all the activities on offer. We loved canoeing on the lake, even with Gale force winds!! We could come back for a warm bath. If was a shame that we could only run one bath before hot water had gone - 6 of us. The interior felt dated but not offensive. The sofas were not very comfy. In the garden it felt similar to camping in that the privacy was limited. Overall we had a good time. We wish we knew about booking sports on site in advance. Our choices were very limited when we arrived.
had a lovely 4 day stay. i was able to fish from just in front of deck area and caught a 17lbs ghost carp with the most beautiful marking. this holiday was perfect for me and the wife loved it as well because dinner tean and drinks were only ever 10yds away couldnt ask for any better
Second stay in 2 months. Different and slightly smaller property this time but had everything we needed. Kitchen was well equipped. Perfect property. So easy to book and access to property was simple.
This house is fantastic and it is in a wonderful setting. The house is comfortable, spacious and well laid out. The beds are particularly comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Owners provided useful information. I would recommend this as a place to stay!
We thought it was good and we’ll equipped. A pair of scissors and baking tray would have been useful but these are minor points
Without a doubt this house has a phenomenal lakeside location which made for a very relaxing family holiday. For the price I think we had hoped for a higher quality finish throughout the house - in reality everything felt a little tired. With that said we had what we needed and the space was great for two families to enjoy a weekend together. The hot tub, jetty, kayaks and tennis courts were absolute winners and the owner was friendly and very accommodating.
We had a wonderful stay over a weekend celebrating our golden wedding with our children and grandchildren who stayed next door. The house was very well equipped. However the two smaller bedrooms didn’t have very comfy beds and the curtains were inadequate to keep out the early morning light.
We stayed at Windrush 89 for 4 nights. It was a fantastic short break Villa clean and well equipped great views of the lake from the decking.
Was good but would have been fantastic if there was more storage space. Double Beds a bit uncomfortable
The property was well positioned, clean, warm. Kitchen area was good. Teas and coffee supplied was a good idea.
Ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds. If your active and enjoy water based pursuits or just walking it’s a perfect choice.
Cottage was lovely, especially wood burner. Lower Mill Estate was great and well organised re activities such as swimming and tennis during COVID. We had a very enjoyable week.
Stayed at ISIS Lakes, Mayfly Lodge. Lodge was lovely, had everything you needed. Only thing I would say shower in main bedroom not working properly had to use one in en-suite. Location was excellent we all had a go at fishing most of us not done it before we all caught though. When we arrived on Monday no where to go out for something to eat or drink ie pub/restaurant. Had 2 lovely meals out at The Royal Oak and The Lakeside Brasserie. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
As a temporary home, Mill Village is a lovely place to be. You wake up to the sound of ducks and geese, you have lovely surroundings and facilities. It is a safe haven and if you like being outdoors it is as close to perfect as it can be, at times we walked for miles with just the sound of nature around us. Property was well equipped for our stay and suited our needs perfectly.
Needs maintenance especially to balconies but lovely setting with gorgeous view of the lake and ideal for canoeing
