I booked one of the Watermark lodges for a long weekend away from city life with my family. I saw many photographs of the lodges before we went, but nothing prepared me for the beauty of the surroundings. The lodge its self was stunningly presented.
I would have been happy spending the weekend sunning myself on our private decking over the lake, but my husband and sons had other ideas. There is loads to do in the local area, including fishing, sailing, kayaking etc, but the activity that caught their eyes was the wakeboarding at WMSki. They even talked me into having a go. By the end of the day, my (gorgeous!) instructor had me whizzing round the lake like a professional.
On arrival, we were presented with a welcome pack with the details of all the best places to eat locally. Although I had planned to eat in the lodge every night (great kitchen), we decided it would be a shame not to try them out. We ended up eating out every night and had some of the best meals I can remember.
We reluctantly returned home, but will certainly be coming back to Watermark. We're even thinking about visiting again this winter to take full advantage of the log fires in the Cotswold pubs!
