Need a slip mat by hot tub 2 of our party slipped when steps moved no way of drying towels except for on clothes horse around boiler but when 7 people staying wasn't enough was to warm for underfloor heating to on apart from that really enjoyable stay will return
Great stay couldn’t ask for anything more. Would recommend to friends and would come again. Thank you
Had a lovely stay in this cottage in the Cotswold Water Park. The surroundings are beautiful and the cottage is a really lovely, welcoming place to stay. We had a lovely family Christmas there
We were staying in Howells Mere 33 and absolutely loved our stay. The home is well-equipped, and has fantastic views over Howells Mere lake from the living area. We noticed that some of the other properties on the same lake had smaller upstairs balconies, not large enough for dining, but number 33 had a large balcony, and we loved dining out there. Such a relaxing place to stay and watch the world go by (or perhaps, more accurately, watch people fall off their paddle boards). The complex is lovely, and very well set out. We used the outdoor pool every day, which the children loved. We'd hav...more
We stayed at Windrush whilst we had building work done to our house. The house is in a lovely position and has plenty of living space as well as 5 comfortable and spacious bedrooms. It was equipped with everything we needed and more (including a full sized pool table). The views over the lake with the sun coming up in the morning were beautiful and the house really is in a lovely position. It was particularly cold during our stay and despite having the heating on most of the time it felt very cold at times. All in all a lovely stay - thank you.
The lodge is really homely and cosy and has everything that you need. This is our second time at the water park and will definitely be back!
Very well equipped, everything is there. Clean and well presented, beautiful location a joy to open the curtains in the morning. Orion’s customer service is to be admired, friendly, helpful and professional.
We booked this very last minute. Orion Holidays were very helpful and it was great that they could accommodate our Thurs - Sunday break. The house was exactly as advertised, and very comfortable and well-equipped
We were a party of 10 staying for a long weekend to celebrate my father’s 80th. The house is in a perfect location backing onto a lake and close to the shop and spa. It is really well appointed and works well for 10 people. Just be aware that the majority of the bedrooms are on the ground floor as you come in and the living space is on the middle floor. The resort is rather more densely populated than we expected so don’t expect to feel away from it all as you are surrounded by other properties. You must book ahead to do water activities etc. All in all we had a great weekend and the house su...more
We had a great family stay for a long weekend, with 3 families spread across 2 properties. The setting is fantastic, with lovely grounds to walk around, pretty lakes and the ability to kayak/paddleboard in one lake. The kids had a brilliant time and spent hours in the play area, which was less than 100m from the house. Would definitely stay again
We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the cottage, the location was excellent, lovely walks close by & just across the road hotel & restaurants. The only thing we were disappointed in was the crockery, as we were self-catering due to Covid-19 we ate in every evening and struggled to find 4 matching plates or pasta bowls, also there were no china cups ! The crockery all seemed a bit mixed up & due an overhaul. Bath tap was very stiff.
We spent a fab week paddleboarding and exploring the area. The house was well equipped, clean and in a superb location. Plenty of space and lots to do both in and outdoors. The children (11 & 15) loved being able to use the lake freely whilst the grown ups could supervise from the veranda. Peaceful except for a little road noise on wet days and nights.
This place is beautiful, all the amenities and the quality of the furnishings is great. One thing we forgot was not to leave chocolate gifts under the Christmas tree with the under floor heating on! We would definitely stay again.
Totally had a great week would defo stay again lovely site. Was in a lovely location on the lake was lovely waking up to the view.
We had a very good stay at Spring Lake 51. Especially the lounge area on the patio was a big hit with the nice weather we experienced. The house is well equipped with fast Wifi, large smart TV and even a PlayStation Pro. Very popular when travelling with two teens. Nice kitchen with all you need for self catering. The fridge space is somewhat limited. The location is great and a very good base for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds. Driving to Stonehenge took less than 1,5 hours. The activities on the lake runs from 8-9 AM to roughly 8 PM and does create some noise. We knew this before arrivi...more
We stayed at Meadow Lark in Aug 2020 for a week. Our party included 5 adults and 3 children below the age of 7. What a stunning house in a stunning and convenient location! The house is modern and comfortable, well maintained and clean. The kitchen is well equipped with a full height fridge freezer, a choice of coffee making facilities inc a cafetière, Tassimo and filter machine and all sorts of other paraphernalia that you don’t often find in a holiday rental. The board games under the stairs were an unexpected but welcome surprise. The kids particularly loved the deck overlooking the...more
an amazing spot for a family and friends gathering and gateway, service is super friendly and kind. View is just to stay for and extend more and more:) Amazing sunshines every morning if you are an early bird:) Highly recommend Staff was very helpful and kind and above all always available
Well equipped, comfortable house. Any minor problems resolved. Quiet area, slight road noise when on patio.
A lovely house with added extra of a hot tub to bathe after dark with the stars . All facilities on site improve each time we visit ( this is visit number 5 ) and balihoo now very smart and welcoming . One slight negative - the shower is unnecessarily complex and not very efficient but otherwise spot on .
Our second holiday at Windrush/Isis lakes and had a good time. Nice place and cottage. My Father who uses a wheelchair is a keen fly fisherman, so the easy access to fly fish here is the reason we come. The fishing wasnt quite as good as last year though, but if it's as good as last year in the future, we will definitely keep coming! Only one real issue with the cottage, the property has a subtle smell of cigarette smoke. If a room is left with doors/windows closed then this becomes noticeable and it did leave some our clothes with this smell when we went home.
Due to Covid, we cancelled all our holidays abroad and decided to do a Uk staycation. We have never visited the Cotswolds before and we were really keen and eager to explore the area and book with Orion holidays. I am quite particular about where we go and stay. We picked the specific lodge because it had a large living area so the kids could enjoy it and also use the smart TV. The views were lovely there was a little small green patch outside but we didn’t use it but would in the warmer months. Fantastic location and 5 mins to the spa, restaurant, play areas and 15 mins from Cirencester. Also...more
The house was well equipped and located to provide a relaxed weekend for a multi aged group. Twin bedrooms slightly too small.
Arrived on a cold winters day to find heating already on which was a nice welcome to this lovely property. "The Van" was nicely situated overlooking the lake. It was well presented and well appointed for a family group. We'd certainly consider staying here again.
We thank you for our stay in 5 Amoranth Lodge It was beautifully furnished all you needed and comfortable ,We were there with our Son and his wife and our daughter and her partner and it was so relaxing after our lockdown experience as we were shielded and had not been able to be together .What a fantastic place to share as a Family .The whole experience and location were great and hope to be able to come back.Many Thanks Audrey .
We had a great, much needed,break.The property was fabulous and the location wonderful. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
What a place to stay and location was truly amazing, we will most defiantly be returning for another amazing weekend.
Dont do reviews normally - but decided to take the time to highly recommend this place. Great house fantastic location.
Had a great time at the cottage, access was fairly straightforward and the house itself is beautiful. The views are amazing! Two things to note that we found from our stay was that the large sofa/sofabed is pretty uncomfortable for sitting on in the evening, and we had to bring some pillows down to make it more comfortable on our backs. The second one was the comfort of one of the twin rooms, the beds were not comfy but the other twin room with the beds perpendicular to eachother was super comfortable, as was the double. The cottage was very warm and quiet. We would have liked there to be ...more
We had a fabulous weekend here at Clearwater 82. The property is perfectly located and has wonderful views of the lake. The house is very comfortable and clean, it has everything you need for a self catering holiday. We didn’t know the Code for locked gates around the lakes until we got bikes on the Sunday. Would have been helpful to know this on arrival!
We spent 4 days at Tide Cottage. The location is great and the property was reasonably well equipped. The weather wasn’t too kind to us but still plenty to do. We have already booked to return next year albeit to a different cottage.
Second stay in 2 months. Different and slightly smaller property this time but had everything we needed. Kitchen was well equipped. Perfect property. So easy to book and access to property was simple.
had a lovely 4 day stay. i was able to fish from just in front of deck area and caught a 17lbs ghost carp with the most beautiful marking. this holiday was perfect for me and the wife loved it as well because dinner tean and drinks were only ever 10yds away couldnt ask for any better
We really enjoyed our mini break in this property. It was lovely to find a nice location that also allowed us to bring our dog. The property was very clean and had everything we needed- including lots of sanitiser and hand wash which was great in the current climate. This is the first time we have ever bought our dog away and I was pleased it didn’t have other people’s dog hair or smells- the cleaning was perfect! The master bedroom is very roomy and the beds in all rooms are comfy. The two smaller rooms are fine for a short stay but they are tight - so not much room for storage- which is ...more
This house is fantastic and it is in a wonderful setting. The house is comfortable, spacious and well laid out. The beds are particularly comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Owners provided useful information. I would recommend this as a place to stay!
Without a doubt this house has a phenomenal lakeside location which made for a very relaxing family holiday. For the price I think we had hoped for a higher quality finish throughout the house - in reality everything felt a little tired. With that said we had what we needed and the space was great for two families to enjoy a weekend together. The hot tub, jetty, kayaks and tennis courts were absolute winners and the owner was friendly and very accommodating.
Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this clean comfortable and well equipped property. Great location and lovely decking overlooking the lake.
This property is modern, light and clean. It had everything we needed in terms of facilities and equipment. There was lots of space for the family to spread out and even decent coffee facilities. The location of the property is great - off the main driveway so quiet and safe for children riding bikes but also close to the spa, shop and café/ restaurant.
We had a wonderful stay over a weekend celebrating our golden wedding with our children and grandchildren who stayed next door. The house was very well equipped. However the two smaller bedrooms didn’t have very comfy beds and the curtains were inadequate to keep out the early morning light.
Was good but would have been fantastic if there was more storage space. Double Beds a bit uncomfortable
Stayed at ISIS Lakes, Mayfly Lodge. Lodge was lovely, had everything you needed. Only thing I would say shower in main bedroom not working properly had to use one in en-suite. Location was excellent we all had a go at fishing most of us not done it before we all caught though. When we arrived on Monday no where to go out for something to eat or drink ie pub/restaurant. Had 2 lovely meals out at The Royal Oak and The Lakeside Brasserie. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
As a temporary home, Mill Village is a lovely place to be. You wake up to the sound of ducks and geese, you have lovely surroundings and facilities. It is a safe haven and if you like being outdoors it is as close to perfect as it can be, at times we walked for miles with just the sound of nature around us. Property was well equipped for our stay and suited our needs perfectly.
We enjoyed our stay although, with hindsight, it was probably the wrong time of year. Alao could do with more restaurant facilities.
Lovely stay at this cottage right on the lake. Very spacious and comfortable, we were only a family of 4 but it would be big enough for 2 families. Right in the lake which we couldn’t use as the birds winter there so we’re going to come back in the summer!
