“Couldn't be better ”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Jo and Barry are wonderful hosts. We holiday with my Brother in laws and Sister in laws all over the world, usually in places hot and have high standards on our trips away. Well the Coltswold Water Retreat is outstanding. Booking was so easy with Barry coming back to me straight away. The ladies wanted a spa whilst away and Jo booked it all for us, can highly recommend a days spa. The guys went sailing and windsurfing at the next door lakes, cycling and also golf near by. We then all relaxed in the fantastic hot tub, falling asleep listening to music in the very comfortable lounge.

Jo and Barry have furnished the house to a very high specification and there was nothing that wasn't there.

All bedrooms are really comfortable and again to a high spec.

The house is set in a very peaceful setting which certainly helps you to relax.

Thank you for opening your holiday home we will be back.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 25 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We recently stayed here for a short break. The lodge is gorgeous, it has everything you need and really was a home from home. The dog settled in nicely and enjoyed the break too! surroundings were so peaceful and beautiful especially the view from sitting in the hot tub. Would definitely recommend it and we will almost certainly be going back.

“A lovely property, so well equipped. A very relaxing stay and dogs are allowed.”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The location of this property is very well situated for visiting nearby towns. Circenster, Bourton on the water, a big surprise was The Tour of Britain cycling through, Stow on the Wold to name a few.
The property was so well equipped, the best we have ever stayed in.

“Can't wait to go back!!”
Reviewed 1 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The house is stunning inside and out. Plenty of things to do locally, ideal for families or a couples retreat! We took our dog too as Jo and Barry allow furry little friends to visit! On arrival we had a lovely surprise of a birthday cake and dog treats, not forgetting a lovely bottle of fizz! The beds are so comfy and the house has every thing you need in it to live in, it's like home from home! We will be staying again next year! Looking forward to it already, I'd recommend it to anyone! You will not be disappointed! Thank you Jo and Barry for a wonderful stay!

Thanks for a superb review - we are so pleased you had a great time and are already arranging to come back :-). Feedback on how comfy the beds are is always great and I'm sure the walks around the lakes and fun on the Aqua Adventure will have tired you all out. We look forward to seeing you again next year.

“Luxury! Wonderful home....recommended!”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

First time visit to the Cotswold and certainly not the last! We had the opportunity to stay for a mid-week break, much thought has been taken into everything you may need.

On arrival the house was fresh, bright and immaculate, information at hand, certainly spoilt for choice! Accommodates for all ages, we had time to relax and sit back on the luxury seating on the patio outside. To feeling very energetic, by hiring kayaks on lake 86, one of many lakes available, with finishing off at the end of the day in the hot tub.

To start off for the day a visit to the Relish café within the Gateway Centre, breakfast to keep us going. We visited some of the many lovely places (e.g. Bourton on the water), to taste scones, with jam and clotted cream and to select from a range of homemade food.

Thank you Jo and Barry for allowing us into your home for my family to spend time together, your flair for detail has made our time most enjoyable.

A must return location, we certainly will!….Maxine x

“Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful!”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I have just returned from a four night stay with a friend and our two dogs in this wonderful house. It was a delight to find that the house was as lovely as it looked in the photos and that all the great reviews were true. Jo and Barry have thought of everything and Kriss from the hosting service was very helpful and made sure that our stay was perfect.
With wonderful walks from the door and plenty of beautiful towns and villages to visit close by, we were spoilt for choice on how to fill our days especially as it was difficult to drag ourselves away from the tranquil setting of the house and grounds.
We will certainly be returning and my only hesitation in recommending it so highly is that I fear it will be difficult to get booked in in future as it will be so popular.
