Homely house with everything you need for a family holiday. Upstairs been refurbished but kitchen could do with a refit and deep clean. The living area is dark due to proximity of large trees and lack of sunlight although weather was fantastic. Pool area clean and playgrounds good for younger children. Dexter the owner was on hand as we experienced problems with WiFi which took half the week to solve but he tried his utmost to sort issues. Would recommend if you want a relaxing break as lovely walks and cycling in the area but if you want to eat out you need to go off site as cafe/restaurant on complex quite basic.
The house is situated in a secured estate, which is just stunning. There are lakes and countryside views everywhere you look, coupled with lovely holiday homes.
The location itself is situated right on the edge of the cotswolds, with a very short commute from a boating lake, shops etc. whilst still being reasonably remote.
The house is large and well kept, with 1 parking bay (extra in overflow parking), a utility room/wc, big kitchen and dining area, livingroom, stunning outside patio with views directly onlooking a lake. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, of which has an en-suite and a family bathroom. The house could easily accommodate 7 guests.
There are further facilities onsite, such as a swimming pool/spa, estate restaurant, tennis courts and lakes to boat on.
We loved our stay, and the owner made it better by allowing us an early check in. Owner is responsive and helpful.
Thank you for a lovely stay Dexter.
More of a village than an estate in the middle of some attractive lakes. The cottage is blessed by being on the outer edge so that it overlooks a lane and a lake, and this time of year the trees were still golden and the walks peaceful. Not many people around so it was nice and quiet but I could imagine the tiny roads would be very busy and noisy in the summer. The house was clean, cosy and the beds comfortable. A third toilet was very convenient, as were two bathrooms. We had one evening meal and one brunch in the Ballihoo Restaurant which was delightful although a bit pricey. Don't bank on doing much shopping in the 'general store'. I would consider going back in May or June to see the different foliage.
