The house was very clean, comfortable and had everything we could need.
Our stay was at the bank holiday weekend and it was fantastic weather.
We were a family of 8 of various ages including a 5 year old.
The Waitrose delivery organised for an hour after our arrival meant that we didn’t have to go on long trips to supermarkets.
The estate is clean, quiet and has lovely views. We were very busy, hired 2x 4 seater kayaks for 2 hours on Someford lagoon so that we could all enjoy the lake together. We also hired a 2 seater kayak for the weekend and took turns using it on lovely Clearwater lake. We enjoyed the outdoor pool at the spa and the grownups tried the steam room. We played tennis and had lots of walks.
In the evenings we cooked and played scrabble.
A lovely break in a great house and a fantastic location. Hopefully we can return!
The house was stunning, well stocked and with a great view.
The facilities are brilliant and we were well informed before hand with directions, gate codes, etc. Helpfully we also were given a late check out without requesting it as they didn't have another rental that day!
I would definitely recommend Velvet Lodge.
A lovely 4 night midweek break in excellently appointed accommodation overlooking Clearwater lake.
The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable a real home from home and the local area is very pretty and ideal for walkers. We visited nearby Cirencester and Tetbury and enjoyed leisurely coffees and lunches as well as browsing in the many shops. The arboretum near Tetbury is well worth a visit and not to be rushed.
We would also recommend the Bakers Arms pub near to the accommodation which is within walking distance, about 15 mins and which serves good ales and food. Also it is dog friendly as are so many pubs, and cafes in the area.
We would recommend the gymn and pool on site which are in easy walking distance of the accommodation.
All in all a very relaxing midweek break in very comfortable accommodation and we hope to return in the near future.
Great location, beautiful view, peace and quiet. Just perfect.
The house had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay. Onsite facilities are great and we enjoyed our food at the Ballihoo Restaurant.
We had a fabulous break. The accomadation had everything we needed for all our group aged from six months to 75 years. The information was good and we loved the swimming pool and beautiful view. Thank you.
We spent 4 nights at Velvet lodge, 3 families each with young children. There’s plenty do to, to name a few things from our week: 5km nature trail, Valentine’s Day pub lunch, swimming-steam-sauna, outlet shopping, visiting beautiful nearby towns, eating and playing games...! Thoroughly recommend it for those wanting some quality family time in a home away from home...
10 of us recently spent a long weekend at 56 Clearwater. The house accommodated everyone's needs from the 8 year old to the 88 year old! The open plan kitchen/ dining/sitting room provided a great social space, the 5 lovely double bedrooms were very comfortable with additional bedding if required. Everything was provided for our stay and unlike other rental properties in which we have stayed there is plenty of crockery, pots and pans etc.Sitting outside on one of the two balconies overlooking the water would be a lovely thing to do however we didn't manage this in November.
