BFB's Overview

Cotswold Lake House is part of a collection of New England timber clad lodges, with lakeside views and private south facing decking all within a short distance of a lakeside brassiere and gym.

Inside, the light bright interiors with family-friendly features are added bonuses, whilst the fact that there's a spa, golf course, watersports centre, bike hire and routes, plus a choice of restaurants and pubs, within a short, scenic walk really sets it apart. Although, for most young families, the fact that the UK's largest inland beach with a purpose built toddler paddling and playground area is within a few minutes drive is the icing on the cake.

The fantastic setting means guests can park up, unpack and, if they so wish, not see the inside of their car for the entire duration of their stay. Bike hire with child seats/trailers can be pre-booked but even two wheels isn't strictly necessary since there's so much to do with easy walking distance. See 'Area' section for more info.

Even packing for the trip can be stress-free since the owner provides a handy list of useful baby and toddler gear on request from socket covers and stair gates, to toys, books and DVDs. If that and lazy meals or drinks soaking in the views from the house' lovely lake-side deck (blankets provided for cooler evenings) isn't enough to relax with, then a trip to the nearby spa or a round on the golf course, should do the trick! Plus, junior will be happy too, thanks to the opportunities for paddling, or playing in the beer garden playground adjacent to the spa and golf course.

Guests staying in Winter (Nov-Mar) will have access to a nearby (approx. 0.5miles) indoor heated pool with slide, steam room, sauna and soft play- ideal for rainy day fun! *small fee applies


Accommodation Overview:
An allocated car parking space directly behind the house ensures guests can unpack with ease. Inside an open-plan living dining area with patio doors captures the magnificent view of the lake. The galley kitchen is set slightly apart from the lounge area and comes equipped with modern units and useful gadgets including full size oven, hob, fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer. The lounge boast a flatscreen TV with Freeview, DVD player, ipod docking station, Wifi and selection of family-friendly films. French doors open onto your own private and secure deck which has steps down to the lake. The deck provides a truly wonderful spot for alfresco dinning on the gas BBQ or simply relaxing and enjoying the view. A downstairs WC and shower is handy for large families. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a full height window overlooking the lake, allowing you to wake up to a truly wonderful view lake and a large double bed, the second bedroom has a double bed and the third bedroom has twin beds. A family bathroom has bath tub, shower, basin and WC.

Please note: 1 x small pet i.e. small dog/cat permitted at £30 supplement to cover post-stay deep clean.

Larger groups (7-12 +cots) might like to rent the owners other lake-side properties a few doors down. Click here to view.

Location Information

Along with its lake-side setting, one of this house's greatest assets is that there is so much to see nearby and all of it on pushchair-friendly flat paths/roads. Nearest to the house, within a minutes stroll, is the Lake Brasserie with Ski Lodge, which boasts a friendly bar, restaurant with wide menu choices including kiddies favourites, a lake-side terrace and upstairs gym. The ski element is waterskiing, wake boarding or ringos, all of which will no doubt prove irresitible to most families, not least since, thanks to a special skimmer board, ski lessons are available to little ones as young as 3-years old. There's also a small shingle 'beach' area a few steps away, sectioned off from the watersports for safe swimming and popular with little ones for paddling.

A little further on (3-4mins walk) there's a brilliant wakeboard/water ski school offering a ski cable and a buzzing cafe bar. The ski cable is slowed on weekends during special training sessions for kids of 8+ years.

Around five minutes walk away, the spa, golf course, restaurant and 'Old Boathouse' pub at the Four Pillars Hotel has something for everyone, particularly mini guests who love the beer garden play area at the latter. Further on, around 40-minutes walk/15mins by bike, is the Cotswolds Water Park with its purpose built toddler paddling and play area, alongside the UK's largest inland beach. Pedaloes, row boats and even 'Zorbs' are available for hire.

For those who don't mind jumping in the car once in a while during their break, the Cotswolds Farm Park is well worth a visit and around 40-minutes drive, whilst shopaholics will be pleased to learn that the Swindon adesigner discount village is only around an hour's drive away. Cirencester (30mins cycle/10mins drive) is also surprisingly good for shopping with some great independent shops filled with indulgent treats such as the brilliant 'Oeno' wine merchants, Cirencester Cupcakes and Jesse Smiths traditional butchers and cheese shop.

Dining out choices are abundant in the area and the food at the bistro a few steps from the house is pretty good, but for a special meal, the Wild Duck in Ewan (60mins walk/15mins cycle/6mins car) is highly recommended and has a kids menu, whilst the Wheatsheaf in Oaksey (13mins car/30min cycle) offers even more sophisticated pub food, plus an award winning gourmet burger menu, along with kids options. The brilliant 2-acre garden with village-run vegetable patches at The Potting Shed in Crudwell (15mins drive/45mins cycle) means kids can be let off the reigns there and parents can saviour long lazy lunches or suppers from the excellent menu which focusses on locally grown/reared produce and comes in smaller portions for mini guests. For urban dining, 'Made By Bob' in Cirencester has earned much praise from some of the UK's most influential food critics who've been extremely impressed with the creations of its chef, Bob Parkinson who was formerly based at London's Bibendum.

  • Georgeous family holiday spot, beautiful. Everything we needed for a relaxing break, loads of toys which kept the little ones entertainedReview dated 01/10/2015

  • This holiday was brilliant! The house has a really nice feel to it and the location couldn't be better. It was our first holiday with our 1 year old and she loved it. From dinning al fresco in her high chair to feeding the ducks and swans on the lake. Mommy and Daddy enjoyed it too as peaceful evenings were spent on the patio enjoying watching the sun go down - the perfect way to recharge our batteries! The owner was seriously helpful and kind. For example no problem to accommodate our request for red not white wine (we’re picky!). The whole area is great as lots to see and do for children of all ages and the brasserie being a few doors away is so very handy (and their breakfasts are yummy). The house itself I would describe as 'well loved' but I think that was more than adequately reflected in the price so I've given it 5 for Interiors/Luxury.

  • Beautiful location, comfortable & cozy house all set up for small kids. The manager provided fantastic advice for local places to visit/eat (both walking and driving distance), as well as enough food in the fridge to start us out. Our toddlers were also excited by the speedboat on the lake taking people waterskiing (operates seasonally). We would happily stay again, and recommend this holiday house to others.Review dated 27/04/2014

  • We have 3 boys aged from 18 months to 6 years and they all had a fantastic time. The location is beautiful and there is so much to do in the local area that we will definitely return. The owner made us feel at home and went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay. Overall we can highly recommend this accommodation.Review dated 14/01/2014

  • Beautiful location and a very relaxing break. Children loved feeding the ducks and swans everyday. Kevin is a great host and goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. Overall a lovely house in a great location, what more could you ask for.Review dated 26/04/2013

  • We had a great relaxing short break at the lake house with our 8mth old. The house has a fantastic view of the lake from the open plan living area and huge floor to ceiling windows in the master bedroom. Lots of helpful baby equipment on hand, and the owner is really friendly and helpful and full of great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. Would definitely like to return, perhaps when our little one is old enough to feed the ducks!Review dated 20/03/2013

  • We enjoyed a long weekend at the Lakehouse with a 2 month old and 3 other children up to the age of 5. Lots of equipment was available for us to use from a baby gym and stair gate to a full size cot and travel cot. This made fitting us all in much easier. Kevin was a very helpful and friendly host and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. Lovely views and a very cosy atmosphere.Review dated 25/02/2013

  • We cant fault this property. My wife, me and our 10-month old daughter stayed and had a very chilled time. Kevin (the owner) is extremely welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We made a specific request & he sorted it straight away. He also made great Pub / Restaurant recommendations. The Lake House is a lovely place to stay. A great base to explore the Cotswolds. The house is well appointed (everything you need for baby as well as adults), the master bedroom bed was super comfortable, as was the large L-shaped sofa and chais.Review dated 21/01/2013

  • Lovely owner, great location, smart accommodation.Review dated 14/01/2013

  • We had a fantastic few days at the Lake House. It is such a serene location and as it was off season it was exceptionally quiet. There are enough local attractions to please everyone. Kevin was very helpful and great to have him on hand to help with last minute questions. The play mat, bath toys and night lights were a nice touch and it was great to be able to get away for a few days without having to pack so much "child junk".Review dated 14/12/2012

  • We had such a relaxing stay at the Lake House. It was a great property in a beautiful setting - you can't beat waking up by the water every morning. There were plenty of things to do with our toddler locally too, ranging from cycling and walking to visiting Farm Parks and Wildlife Parks. Perfect! Thank you Kevin!Review dated 22/10/2012

  • The cottage was really lovely and it was so helpful to have all the baby equipment available. It was also a really nice touch to have the essentials in the fridge (including wine!) when we arrived. The lakes are peaceful and there are lots of buggy friendly walks straight from the cottage. We would definitely recommend.Review dated 10/10/2012

  • We had a beautiful weekend away at spring lake house. The property is great, the owner was very welcoming and definitely will try to be back soon.Review dated 10/09/2012

  • Great location, close to all the local attractions. The house is right on the lake but the boundaries are safe enough to allow our adventurous 2yr old to roam free. The owner of the property went out of his way to be helpful and ensure we had everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.Review dated 06/09/2012

  • A stunning lake-side house with lovely open-plan living area and safe balcony from which to feed the ducks. Perfect both for our little girl and her parents. We even got to go water skiing and visit the gym as well as having plenty of time on the swings and saying Hello to the animals at the nearby farm.Review dated 24/08/2012
