My three children and I had another wonderful family holiday in the Cotswolds Water Park staying in Mill Village. The property was fantastic and we cannot wait to go back. We are very grateful for the whole experience.
A fabulous property with a beautiful lake view. There was everything one could possibly need in the property. It made for a very relaxing stay. Kitchen etc all fully equipped, beds comfortable and everywhere spotlessly clean. Orion holidays customer service is second to jone. We had a couple of situations with a misplaced purse and a lost ring and they could not have been more helpful with both their communications and help searching for the ring (after we’d left) I would highly recommend both Orion holidays and our property 88, Howells mere.
A brilliant family weekend in a beautiful location. Everything we needed was supplied. One of the best equipped accommodations we have hired. A brilliant find.
Great stay couldn’t ask for anything more. Would recommend to friends and would come again. Thank you
Every member of the family loved it . From the youngest who enjoyed the play parks and Bumble van to the rest of the family who spent all day doing various water sports on the lake , bike rides round the lake ,swimming in the pools or fishing , it was a brilliant holiday .
We booked our stay fairly late as our original holiday plans were scuppered due to Covid. There was nothing second-rate about it however! The lake setting is beautifully peaceful, with enough activities on site to keep our toddler amused, building sandcastles, paddling and playing in the play area. On arrival the house was pristine, with a very well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. We found the tablet providing details of the local area etc very useful too. Overall a wonderful relaxing holiday.
We arrived at the location to find it ready for access. The property itself is superb, furnished to a very high standard and had everything you needed for a self catering stay. The cleanliness was exceptional, and bedding was clean and spotless. We received a welcome call from Orion holidays and were told if we needed anything just to call. The weather was exceptionally hot, so we found that the only thing that would have made the nights more comfortable would be a fan for each room. The whole site was clean and welcoming, not a single piece of rubbish anywhere. Would thoroughly recommend...more
Absolutely fabulous place. Outside furniture and garden pots need a little tlc. Loved the place would recommend and go back
The property and location was stunning. We loved the house. It was very well equipped and v comfortable. Very good condition. Lovely location. We lived coming back to the house after a day out. Would highly recommend. Thank you !
Orion holidays were very helpful from Booking to after our stay. They called to say we could get into The property earlier than planned, & we Were able to have a later Checkout. The property was lovely, had everything we needed & in a beautiful location. We walked around the lakes & to the village Pub in the evening.
Very well equipped, everything is there. Clean and well presented, beautiful location a joy to open the curtains in the morning. Orion’s customer service is to be admired, friendly, helpful and professional.
We discovered this particular resort last year and quickly made the decision to return in 2021. After much research we decided upon 88 Waterside and from the moment we arrived we knew that it was the correct decision. Fantastic property with an abundance of space and in the perfect location. Spotlessly clean with everything you could need with the only exception being the lack of wardrobes in all but the master bedroom. It is, however, only a minor inconvenience as there is wardrobe space available on the landing.
Super location on Isis Lake with quick access to tennis courts etc. House was ideal for a holiday and immaculately clean. Lovely friendly holiday complex and the customer service at Orion was exemplary.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at waters edge . The house was a perfect set up for our three families with small children staying . The outdoor hot Tub was lovely and clean and when we asked for the temperature to be turned down due to the hot weather the team at Orion were super helpful . Two small criticisms would be the outside furniture was slightly small meaning the adults couldn’t all fit comfortable around it and considering the house can sleep 8 it was a squeeze with 6 . Also the main bedroom overlooking the lake was beautiful however the blinds on the windows didn’t shield any li...more
Great place to stay with two teenage boys. We could fish off the balcony and we had a great gas BBQ. The hot tub was great as was the pool/air hockey/pin pong table. Good sized bedroom all ensuite with a large open plan living area. High recommend!
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
Totally had a great week would defo stay again lovely site. Was in a lovely location on the lake was lovely waking up to the view.
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
This property is in a fantastic location enjoying great views of the lake. It has absolutely everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
This is the second time we have visited the area. Perfect accommodation for our needs. Very comfortable.
A lovely house with added extra of a hot tub to bathe after dark with the stars . All facilities on site improve each time we visit ( this is visit number 5 ) and balihoo now very smart and welcoming . One slight negative - the shower is unnecessarily complex and not very efficient but otherwise spot on .
Perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect stay! Absolutely loved it and highly recommend. So clean, brilliant parking, lovely local restaurant.
Lovely clean spacious house, 6 adults and baby stayed for a week. House was well equipped with everything you could want. Enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor swimming pools during our visit. Very relaxing peaceful holiday, lovely views.
Due to Covid, we cancelled all our holidays abroad and decided to do a Uk staycation. We have never visited the Cotswolds before and we were really keen and eager to explore the area and book with Orion holidays. I am quite particular about where we go and stay. We picked the specific lodge because it had a large living area so the kids could enjoy it and also use the smart TV. The views were lovely there was a little small green patch outside but we didn’t use it but would in the warmer months. Fantastic location and 5 mins to the spa, restaurant, play areas and 15 mins from Cirencester. Also...more
Really great place to stay, only criticism would be the lack of storage and wardrobe space in the master bedroom. Would also have been useful for it to say somewhere where to put the bins/ rubbish as we could not find, or have a main bin closer to the property as the main bins were quite far away. Otherwise clean, spacious rooms. Well equipped property with nice decoration.
Great stay had by the 5 of us in this wonderfully presented apartment. The location is great, right in the heart of the Cotswolds Water Park. We would all highly recommend a stay here
a lovely place to stay and relax beautiful views of lakes birds and lovely walks ( once managed to decipher the map) we were only 4 people in accommodation for 10 so lots of room in our house lovely layout and features in property, but a few fixtures and fittings broken ( broken freezer drawer)/ missing cleanliness average - lots of cobwebs, no evidence that decks had ever been swept, outdoor cushions for sofa on deck were wet through and unusable for duration of our stay. Windows not clean and nor was the glass on deck edge. the booklet said there was a cloth for outdoor use - there wasn...more
Overall had a great week, staff were friendly and dealt with any issues promptly. Beautiful location and the site was very well maintained and secure.
We had a lovely stay in the Cotswolds. The lodge was clean and spacious and us girls enjoyed our weekend.
A fantastic property with great location on the lake and close to the nature trails. House is in good condition and was immaculately clean throughout. A great place for a family get together and suitable for young children.
After a very stressful year and half, to have a week to escape was just what the doctor ordered; and we certainly weren’t disappointed. The place was very welcoming, clean, comfortable, modern and very spacious. Everything had been very well looked after and we wanted for nothing. The view onto the lake was delightful, and we immediately felt less stressed after having only been there a short time. In addition to the property being immaculately maintained, the whole site was beautifully manicured. It all made our stay so refreshingly perfect. Orion holidays themselves were so unbelievab...more
Had everything we needed and wanted. Very relaxing and lots to keep kids entertained. Beautiful surroundings.
Dont do reviews normally - but decided to take the time to highly recommend this place. Great house fantastic location.
A lovely location, but for the money, we would have expected a better level of cleanliness and a working BBQ. There were dog hairs all over the rug and the oven was very greasy with burn on food left inside. The BBQ was dirty from the last occupants use and the bottom vent was rusted so much that when we tried to close it, it came to pieces. For the cost of the rental, we'd expect a better standard. We would book this property again, assuming this was a one off, as everything else was lovely. However, the location and onsite facilities were excellent and a week of continuous sunshine ma...more
Wonderful - a very special place. From the Balcony over the lake to the shared facilities - everything was faultless
A much needed break in an amazing property in a beautiful location, cant wait to go back for my 3rd visit!!
Great place and awesome location right on the lake which you can access to paddle board. The are great amenities on site for you also.
Lovely location and very clean, but very tight in terms of space, especially in one of the “double” bedrooms, and no air-conditioning makes it unbearable at night in warm weather.
Accommodation nice. Sun loungers on the deck might be a nice addition for when it's hot. We had our puppy with us and struggled to find an area close by where we could let him off the lead safely... Nice park in Cirencester though.
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!
Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this clean comfortable and well equipped property. Great location and lovely decking overlooking the lake.
Was good but would have been fantastic if there was more storage space. Double Beds a bit uncomfortable
I spent three nights at the house with my family and support bubble having a much needed break away. The house is beautifully decorated and the perfect location right by the lake. This meant it was super easy to get out for a morning kayak as the sun was rising and the rest of the group were breakfasting on the veranda. We LOVED being on the lake, helped by the amazing weather and we spent as much time as we could exploring. We had a BBQ for every meal and spent every moment we could outside. The children enjoyed seeing the mallards pottering around the house, though they were more wary of...more
A lovely property with a great location. Quiet area, superb for dog walkers and cycle tracks and for booking water sports. On site canoes and paddle boards, at 4 lakes waterski, we booked 12 wakeboard sessions and Cerney Outdoor for windsurfing and sailing, both fantastic.
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.
Lovely cottage, good location Bedrooms decent size. En-suite shower could do with more power but no issues with it. Beautiful views over the lakes. Kids loved outdoor pool and facilities including the kayak. Life jackets would be useful to have in the cottage, we borrowed some from other cottage.
