“Outstanding!! A True Haven!!”
Reviewed October 25, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My wife has been speaking about Lakes By Yoo for the last few years and how she would love to see them. We didn't realise until this year, that you could rent the property, so we did, for a week. Kasha and John, the owners of Larchwood Lodge, are amazing and have created a truly special experience for their guests.

The setting is just perfect, really peaceful, tranquil and a real haven. You are directly on the water and it's so still. If you cannot truly relax here and appreciate the surroundings then you will never anywhere. The lodge is spacious, tastefully and luxuriously decorated and caters for people who want to celebrate special occasions or a couple like us just wanting a relaxing week away. They have thought of everything for example, from a hamper on arrival, to a home cinema room, to towels given to you for the spa to Molton Brown toiletries in every bathroom. If you are foodies and enjoy cooking like us, they have every utensil and saucepan you need. If cooking is not your thing, then there are some of the best award winning gastro pubs in the country in a 10-15min drive from you.

The walks around the lakes are are stunning and you are in 650 acres of the best of English countryside.

We promise you will not be disappointed so much so, we have booked for two other occasions already. Kasha avd John thank you so much for your advice and support for a fantastic stay. You deserve all the 5 star accolades you recieve, they are all true and anything less than 5 star is down to, there is just no pleasing some people. Well done and whoever stays there you will have a really wonderful experience.

“Great home in a simply stunning complex”

We booked at the very last minute but both Kasha and Stephanie could not have been more helpful.
All the arrangements were made and confirmations received within a matter of hours and all the instructions were concise and very helpful. The complex, Lakes by yoo, is stunning with very little new development work intruding into a tranquil spot, the house itself is exactly as the details show and was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean.
All in all a great house in an aspirational complex, great value given the quality and the tranquillity.

“Simply Spectacular”

I, along with my other half and other friends, have just returned to Scotland after a most superb stay at this wonderful house. Larchwood Lodge was quite simply spectacular and the photos do not show just how lovely this property is. Everything you needed was there but the view over the lake was just what the doctor ordered! We were down to work at an event but never before have we sat out on the deck whilst ducks and swans swim about in front of us in the peace and tranquility of this beautiful house! The house is calming, light and airy and with the views it is nothing short of heaven! We were very eager to go to the event but when walking in to this lovely home we actually just wanted to stay and when we all left on Monday morning there was silence as none of us really wanted to leave! Thank you to the lovely Debbie for her warm welcome and thank you to Steph for helping with the booking! Thanks must also go to the concierge team at the gate - just superb. Finally our thanks must go to Mrs Grimes for the welcome hamper, including Moet, and for allowing us to rent this amazing establishment! We are pencilled in for next year - see you then I hope! :-) 'LOVED IT' now off to buy a lottery ticket as there are still some plots left! :-)

Larchwood Lodge is a great place for a family holiday. Lots to do and plenty of space to relax and unwind. The lake is lovely, as are the pool, lounge and playground. This was our second time staying there and we really enjoyed it.
