“Relaxing”
Reviewed August 19, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable week stay at this stunning place. 2 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 younger children and a dog is quite a task to keep happy but it worked! Plenty to do from walking round the lake, bike rides, kayaking, playing pool, chilling in hot tub or just enjoying the view and feeding the very friendly ducks. Only ventured out to visit Alton Towers one day which was good fun, 30 mins max drive away and younger kids enjoyed Waterworld one morning again about 30 mins away. Normally go out and about a lot more when away but no one felt the need to leave. The cabin was well equipped and VERY clean. Thanks Mark you were very welcoming with treats on arrival, general advice where best to eat out etc and kayaking lesson for kids. Had a very happy and relaxing break.

“Well equipped accomodation in a Brilliant location”

person found this review helpful

Just returned from a long weekend at Watersedge and already talking about booking again next year. We are a group of all female friends who seek a retreat every year, this exceeded all expectations and will hold special memories for us. Kayaking to Rudyard hotel for refreshments before returning to our retreat for hot tub/log fires and peace and quiet.
The accommodation is well equipped and the glamping pod added additional bedroom and chill out area.
We will be booking later in the year for 2017 so we can make full use of the outdoor space, BBQ and games area.

“A Fantastic Retreat”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was our second visit to Waters Edge. It is a wonderfully well equipped cabin with amazing views in a great location. We were lucky enough to be there on a snowy weekend which made the hot tub even better and the walk around the lake even more beautiful. Mark's new Pod is a great addition which gives a fantastic bedroom separate from the main cabin. Even at -5 outside it was toasty warm. I'm certain we will be back.

“The most tranquil, beautiful, fun place we have ever found”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were lucky enough to find this place over ten years ago and I can still remember the first time I stood on the balcony looking out to the lake. It takes around five minutes of being here for all the stress that you carry round to just disappear. The location and view is stunning, Watersedge itself is a beautiful property that instantly makes you feel like it's home. We have been here in all different seasons and you find something new each time. Sitting in the hot tub late at night listening to the peace and quiet has to be experienced. The lake is great for chilling out, fishing, paddling about and exploring. Nearby Leek is a lovely town with great restaurants and shops. I think for me what really makes this place so special is the owner, Mark. He loves the boathouse and the area and wants all of his guests to get as much enjoyment as he does from it. Always sad to leave but always look forward to coming back. If you have ever wondered why to take a UK break, try this one, you will not regret it

“Stunning location, fantastic house, right on the lake - couldn't be better!”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here with a friend and 4 children aged from 4 to 7 in May 2015 and had a truly fantastic and utterly memorable weekend. The host was absolutely excellent - the kids still stay that the hot popcorn on arrival was their highlight! The lodge has everything you could possibly want - and more. The hot tub was enjoyed by everyone (obviously!) and the under cover BBQ (and outdoor bar and pool table!) meant there was no way that the weather could spoil things. The well-stocked and free supply of kayaks, canoes and row boats (and life vests!) meant we had everything we could have possibly wanted for dabbling about on the water. I think you'll find it hard to top this place for a family or friend's get together - whether with kids or not. Loved every second of our stay - and hope to return soon.

“Loved our stay on the lake”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Very welcoming we are a family of four and we loved our stay at Watersedge.
My 15 year old daughter loved having a room to herself with a view of the lake from her bed. My 10 year old son loved the bunk bed and his own TV in his room. The place has real character and feels like a home from home and not the normal cosmetic feel of many commercial lets. We made good use of the Canadian canoe and kayaks provided and even did a bit of fishing. Plenty todo in the area if you love the outside. Recommended.
