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.

Fantastic house in a lovely setting - very quiet and relaxing. Perfect base from which to explore the surrounding areas and venture deeper into the Cotswolds. Lots of activities nearby to keep the kids off their gadgets and we loved being able to take to the lake on the two kayaks. Good routes from the doorstep for family cycling and walks, and theRead morere are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. The property is very well equipped with high spec interiors. A very enjoyable holiday! Hide

This was booked last minute, so I could only go on the recommendation of HolidayCottages rep Paige who had actually stayed at this property. So glad I took her advice. The property and location was 5 Star. Stunning views from all aspects, this 4 Bedroom detached with decking with jetty onto Summer Lake had it all. Kayaks included for added fun. DonRead moret hesitate to book, you wont be disappointed. Most amenities are a short walk away and Swindon Town is only 30 mins by bus from the lake entrance. Hide

The property was just perfect for 8 of us and had everything we needed! The location was stunning with the lake being right outside the property. 2 kayaks are provided to take out onto the lake which was a nice touch! Its only a short drive into the little village of South Cerney and Cirencester is also nearby. We had a lovely time and would love tRead moreo visit again. Hide
