This stunning lake house is situated on the waters edge, offering open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with vaulted ceilings and a contemporary style. Well suited to families looking to get together and enjoy the outdoors.

This three-storey lake house, right on the water's edge, is the perfect spot for a large group getaway with a difference. It's ideally located for water sport enthusiasts and outdoor lovers alike as there are so many activities for you to do. The property itself has been beautifully decorated with a contemporary feel and is bursting with natural light throughout, making it an incredibly welcoming place to stay. With its own private mooring, you are welcome to bring along a non-motorised boat to take out on the shared lake, or simply sit back and relax on the rear terrace and take in the lakeside view. With room for eight guests spread across four bedrooms, and a large open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, there is more than enough space for everyone to enjoy this property whatever the occasion may be.

 

Leave muddy boots and coats in the reception hall as you enter this property, before stepping through to the stylish lounge/kitchen/diner. Oozing sophistication, this room is the hub of the house, making it the perfect space for socialising as a group whilst cooking up a delicious meal. Share wine, food and stories around the dining room table before settling down for the evening with snacks in front of the large TV. On a summer's evening, why not fire up the BBQ and venture outside to the terrace? Patio doors leading off from the kitchen/diner area make preparing a complimentary salad easy, whilst drinks can be left chilling in the fridge with the easy access. Take your morning coffee out to the terrace for a tranquil start to your day, or sit at the breakfast bar with company before heading off for the day's adventure. With a bathroom with shower over bath on the first floor, as well as two en-suites, getting ready in the morning is made simple, allowing for a quick start to the day.

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.

Great location! Beautiful views and a wonderful house but unfortunately we were very disappointed with the cleanliness of the house when we arrived.

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.

Good property for a large family group. Spacious inside and plenty of outside areas for relaxing. Great location and lots to do locally. Lodge well equipped generally and all rooms have good views of the Lakes . Kayaks were good to have but maybe a second bike ! Would visit again
