The house is lovely, and very spacious. The extra throws and blankets in each room came in useful for evenings on the terrace. We enjoyed using the two kayaks and cycling around the many lanes and cycle paths in the area. The man's bike at the property was in good condition. The property was nice and clean when we visited.

We also visited cotswold country park and beach and had a great day there too! We would love to come back x Hide

Wonderful location and use of kayaks a great bonus. House and Windows could have been cleaner and particularly outside area. House generally needs some tlc. However having said all that we had a wonderful holiday.

We had a lovely break. A well equipped, spacious, and clean property in a very convenient location. Nice large terrace with a clear view of the lake. Our grandchildren had a wonderful time with the Kayak and the bike in the property. We highly recommend this property and we will go back again.

Super break for us all. Having the Kayaks and a bike gave us lots of choice of how to fill our days. Never had to venture very far. We had brought with us road bikes and found lots of lovely country roads to cycle on near summer lake. The home itself is nicely furnished and well equipped.
