This is a great holiday rental, decorated to a high standard. The view of the lake from the lounge was lovely and the facilities on site are good. I stayed with my husband, two daughters and our dog. The girls loved the play area that was a very short walk from the house. South Cerney is a lovely village and was a short drive away for takeaways! The only negative was the amount of personal belongings/ornaments in the house which weren’t child friendly but I just moved everything out of reach to make sure nothing got broken. The hosts had great communication with me pre-stay and had left a lovely welcome pack/gift box including Easter Egg which was very thoughtful. I would highly recommend the house.
Really nice cottage in a good location. It had a very homely feel about it. We took a day trip to Burton on the Water which was lovely and Birdland was an excellent place to take our small children . There is a tiny beach on ISIS which would have been perfect for digging, paddling and playing in the sand- however it was raining most days so we'll have to save that for next time. We did run out of hot water in the bath one day, although it was already fairly full and it could have been user error tbh. Apart from that everything was great.
There was that wow factor from the moment we entered the complex. The peacefulness surrounds you instantly .
We were met at the cottage by the owner who was extremely friendly and made us some tea.
We went as a whole family , 4 generations and 2 dogs , we had an amazing time . The house is wonderful , clean and cosy . The view from the windows is amazing.
We stayed at Isis Lakes Lodge for a long weekend in October and had a great time. It was raining outside but sunny inside as the lodge is decorated to a high standard with light fabrics and quality furnishings, making it feel very modern but still cosy and relaxing. There are two bathrooms which are spotless, a kitchen with every utensil and appliance you will need, and great views of the lake from the living room and main bedroom. Overall a very relaxing place to stay in a great area and a painless booking process. The fishing on the lake is very good too.
Due to unexpected illness we had to cancel our booking of a week's fishing with the family in France (cottage with own lake) and try to book something similar in UK and found 38 Isis. Booking was simple and easy with great communications from the owner. Upon arrival we had milk, tea and cake waiting for us (and skips for the children). And the house was immaculate, clean with everything that you could ever need for a week's break, including lots of games etc.
Fishing was very good with lots of Carp including some lovely looking Koi. Carp were often feeding off the top of Isis lake next to the man made beach. Didn't fail to catch during each fishing session with the largest being just under 16 lb. There were very few people fishing and plenty of swims to choose from. We never got to try Windrush lake which is much bigger than Isis lake and likely to have bigger fish.
Lots to do around the area, including the Wildlife Park and Outlet centre. Superstore only 10 minutes away. The Lakeside Brasserie restaurant was a very good location...although the food was nothing special an parking was difficult.
If you want a quiet, restful break or want a carp fishing holiday, would most definitely recommend 38 Isis.
We really loved this lodge. On arrival it felt as though someone had opened their home to us, well stocked kitchen, thick carpet in the lounge and beautiful bathrooms; not to mention the tray of tea, cake and snacks for the children. But the best bit about the lodge is the location space for the children to play on the grass by the lake whilst we relaxed on the balcony and enjoyed the view. The only downside was the main bed was uncomfortable.
But will book again.
