Rented this property for three nights, had a wonderful time. Right by lake wonderful setting. Gated development, well positioned for all the park can offer. We shall return.

It's always a great location to take dogs for a walk but it can be a bit difficult to park well sometimes. The car park near the Cotswold Outdoor shop floods quite badly so it's best to go next door into the tarmacked car park of the pub / hotel.

Cotswold Water Parks make for a good day in the outdoors. Stop at the visitor centre and collect a map first. Neigh Bridge is our favourite area. Lovely walk round the lake and the autumn colours were beautiful. It's also very close to The Bakers Arms - an excellent country put which does delicious food.

Balihoo restaurant onsite okay but unspectacular in quality for... More

The lake is large and good for all activities, we tried paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing on our two visits here during the August peak. The only down side really was the queue to pay for the activities, it was very long and with only one member of staff able to book people in at a time, it seemed painful.... More

A group of us stayed at Water's Edge, 16, a holiday home with Orion Holidays. The accommodation had 4 good size bedrooms with good size bathrooms. The master double had a spectacular bathroom with a deep bath overlooking the lake. This bedroom also had a balcony area, very beautiful on an Autumn morning. The accommodation had everything we needed for... More

A beautiful setting to walk round, it's not suitable for buggies so carry and babies. The cafe is good, offers good food and drinks.

We found amazing places to walk making quiet places to talk which we needed. The car parking and shop and café restaurant were excellent. Would have liked more time to explore.
