Description

Nothing says holidays like a hot tub. After dinner's done and the night is but young, fire up the bubbles and watch the panoramic view of the sun setting over the lake from your private secure deck. This is just one of the magical moments you can experience whilst staying at Lapwing Lake Lodge.

Perched on the water's edge, Lapwing Lake Lodge is a chic New England-style retreat with plenty of room for six plus pooch. The pretty clapper board-style exterior and fantastic water-front setting make a brilliant first impression. The convenience of the location within steps of a family-friendly lakeside bar, brasserie, gym and a great children's play area come a close second.

Located on Spring Lake, our lake house has prime position in the Cotswold Water Park, one of the best kept secrets of Gloucestershire! One of 150 lakes in an area the size of Jersey, there's so much to explore and something for everyone. Wildlife, water sports, activities, great eateries, walking, history and culture are just some of the things you will find nearby.

The lake house itself has been stylishly renovated to mirror its setting, offering super lake views from inside and out. Downstairs, it's fully open plan complemented by stunning bi-folding doors that stretch across the back of the house. They ensure the house is filled with calm and tranquil light whilst showing the lake off in all its charming glory.

An ever changing picture of water-skiers, swans and rippling water can be enjoyed from the comfort of the sofa, or fold the doors back and the living area takes on a new and exciting feel. The outside space becomes an extension to the house, providing the perfect spot for sizzling steaks on the barbecue. Or simply sitting back to enjoy lakeside life while your own hot tub bubbles invitingly and watch the world go by.

Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with a 5' bed and full length window overlooking the lake, allowing you the same stunning views. There are two further twin/double bedrooms with 5' zip and link beds and a family bathroom. Extra care has been taken for families, and you will find lots of special touches around the house if you are planning on taking the little ones.

The light bright interiors with family-friendly luxuries are added bonuses, whilst the fact that there's a golf course, water sports 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 10-15 minute stroll is the icing on the cake.
Along with its lakeside setting one of the house's greatest assets is the amount that there is to see and do nearby for families and young children. Within a minute's stroll is the Lakeside Brassiere which boasts a family friendly sports bar, a relaxed family restaurant with a sun terrace overlooking the lake. A fully air conditioned gym is located above the brasserie with a range of equipment. Should you be staying for a prolonged period a monthly membership can be purchased, but the gym also offers a highly reasonable single use fee option.

Within 50 metres of the lodge is a large children's play area with climbing frame, monkey bars and fireman pole.

Lakeside Ski & Wake offer wakeboard and waterski lessons on the lake, plus sessions as well as fun rides for all the family on their ringos and other inflatables. These all prove irresistible to most families in the summer months, not least since thanks to a special skimmer board. From beginners to experts, everyone is welcome.

Next to the house is a small shingle beach area popular with the little ones for paddling. From the deck you can feed swans and ducks that are very friendly, but far enough away to stop little ones from feeling intimidated.

About a 5 minutes' walk away, there's a cable ski and a buzzing cafe bar reachable on pushchair friendly flat paths and roads.

Located opposite Spring Lake is the South Cerney Outdoor Education Centre which offers sailing, canoeing, and paddle boarding activities and courses. Bike hire, angling and even the biggest inland beach in the UK are all within a mile or two.

Fire the Heart Retreats, situated on the Landings nearby, offers guests in-house rejuvenation therapies and treatments. Alternatively, treat yourself to private treatments and pampering at the house from Glo Pamper. A personal chef can also be arranged if required.

The house is also within walking distance to the local village of South Cerney which offers a number of local amenities including a selection of pubs, takeaways, village shops, post office and a hairdressers.

Lapwing Lake Lodge is ideally situated too for exploring the towns and villages of the beautiful Cotswolds region. The well-known quintessential English villages of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Moreton-in-the-Marsh, are all within easy reach and make a great day out.

Cirencester known as 'The Capital of the Cotswolds', is 4 miles away, giving easy access to excellent shopping, restaurants, entertainment, ancient buildings and museums. Cheltenham (20 miles), the most complete regency town in England, is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, Cheltenham hosts Festivals of Jazz, Classical Music, Science, Literature, Food & Drink.

Highgrove House, one of the homes of Prince Charles, is less than half an hour's drive as is Westonbirt Arboretum, with its stunning new treetop walkway, the longest in the UK.

Appealing to children in particular, the nearby Cotswold Wildlife Park, the numerous attractions at Bourton-on-the-Water, and Cotswold Farm Park provide plentiful entertainment.

The cities of Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and Oxford are all under an hour's drive away.

Located just over an hour from London, it's the ideal place for families or a group of friends to spend time together at any time of the year.

The hot tub is a lovely touch after a long day exploring and dog walking. Kevin is a wonderful host and is always at the end of the phone if you need him. The location is perfect, central to lots of lovely villages and things to do. We hope to return soon in the summer months.’
