Couldn’t fault Jo and her property. She was amazing from booking and finding us a suitable date to stay. When we arrive there were some lovely touches such as a cake, Prosecco and tea and coffee which was lovely after a long drive. The property is beautiful, it has everything you need for your stay from kitchen supplies to sky tv to shower gel etc. The hot tub was lovely for the evenings overlooking the lake. Thank you so much. Will definitely recommend and also visit again in the future!
This is now the 3rd time in 12 months we have stayed at one of the Thurstons fabulous waterside properties, twice with our teenage grandchildren and once with close friends.
Our grandchildren were already asking us to book up for next year by day 2 of this stay! That speaks volumes about the experience we all had in these wonderful properties in such stunning locations.
Barry & Joanne leave nothing to chance in how the accommodation is presented and the facilities available, including a 2 man Kayak at Kingfisher, plus the hot tub of course!
Our only problem is that now we have brought this to your attention we will have problems booking up for our next visit!
We’ll done and a big thank you Barry & Jo, as Arnie Schwarzenegger once said - we’ll be back.
I booked this for my annual weekend away with my school friends. It was well above par for any other weekend stays we have tried out. Very high spec, and truly stunning location, i would really highly recommend this. The welcome was lovely, place spotless and view beautiful.
5 of us stayed here for 2 nights at the end of may. We had everything we needed! All of the utensils in the kitchen, we wanted for nothing. Spotlessly clean, beautiful views and lovely places to walk and eat. Perfect short break and can not wait to go back next year!
Our family spent 1 week at Kingfisher Lodge and it was just perfect from start to finish. Communication with Jo and Barry was great and we found the house no problem. The house itself is stunning with everything you could need and very child friendly for our 18 month old son. A travel cot and stair gate were provided which made life very easy for the week. Our two older boys just loved the Hot Tub (their first experience) and thought they were the coolest boy on earth drinking fizzy blackcurrant water in the Hot Tub. Everything in the house is spotless and of a very high standard and the beds were very comfortable. The Cotswolds itself is beautiful and we spent our days travelling around stopping in lovely towns and villages for coffee and ice cream. The weather was very nice for April. Jo and Barry have a wonderful guidebook with loads of recommendations for food and activities. We will hopefully return to Kingfisher Lodge again soon. It's just beautiful.
I just want to start by thanking Jo & Barry for creating something so beautiful and homely! I unfortunately only had the luxury of staying for 2 nights, but what an amazing 2 nights it was.
You instantly feel relaxed and chilled soon as you walk in, this could be the calming music, beautiful views, Prosecco in the fridge, fresh cake made on the side, all of which was such a lovely touch.
Lucy came round a few hours later to show how everything worked and recommend local places to visit and eat/drink. 3 huge en-suite bedrooms, master bedroom was extremely comfy and overlooked the lake which was beautiful.
Loved the Sonos, alexas, nests and the sky package!
I truly cannot wait to return here in the summer time and be by the lake in the hot tub! I could keep going on and on about how great it was, but a review, pictures or videos will not do this place justice.
Thank you again!
The Lodge is amazing, and the attention to detail is apparent as soon as you arrive with appropriate music awaiting you. Everything you ned is catered for. We had a wonderful relaxing post Christmas break, and the children hardly wanted to leave the house apart from to go into the hot tub. I am going back in the summer with female friends and looking forward to exploring the local towns a bit more. We will be back with the family again too, just deciding which season to try next. owners, Barry and Jo really helpful during booking process and advance of stay and Lucy really friendly on arrival.
