Everything at the property was what we were expecting. Lovely views from the lodge and loads of activities locally. We enjoyed it so much that we’ve rebooked for another week in September.
A wonderful house for the family get together for christmas. Plenty of social spaces so no one felt crammed it. Pool table a lovely touch. House, especially kitchen very well equipped for all needs, including laundry. Central heating great, if you're in for the winter! Showers powerful and hot! Stunning views and great environment with little kids and old people. We'll be rebooking for sure! :-) Tesco extra 7 minutes away and Dobbies a real treat 5 minutes away; especially with their new Butchers and cooked meats!!!
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 arranged for our daughters to get together for a weekend after their exams. This was an ideal location to relax and unwind. The property itself was lovely and clean with everything you needed. Lots of outdoor space to walk, play and just sit and relax The kayaking and canoeing was just round the corner. We all had a great time
From the very 1st phone call to the day we left the whole Experience was 1st class, the gentleman I spoke to 1st of all was very helpful and informative, understanding whilst I made a few changes to the booking, nothing seemed like too much trouble. The communication prior to arrival was great. The property itself was perfect, even better than we expected, beautiful inside and out, lovely fixtures and fittings, bed linen etc. Fantastic outside front wooden patio area with glass surround, ideal for the kids to play. Stunning large lounge / dining area which was perfect for us, there were 7 o...more
A wonderfully presented house in a fantastic location. Ideal as a base to go and explore the local and not so local corners of the Cotswolds. Excellent customer service as well ensures a return booking next year.
We enjoyed a lovely week on this Cotswold Water Park site. The house was well equipped, clean and very comfortable. Our grandchildren enjoyed the play area and cycling safely around the reasonably secure site. Our only criticism was the 'allocated' parking system which was a bit of a free-for-all as cars from properties some distance away parked in our numbered space.
Myself and husband (fly fishing enthusiasts), two friends from Australia and another friend stayed here 30 Jun - 1 July, 2019. We absolutely loved the place. We met many great people during our short stay everyone was so nice including the Security Gate Staff, in particular, the Indian Welsh Security Guy. If you like fishing in particular fly fishing, this place is a little peace of heaven, if you don't like fishing this place is also a little peace of heaven. We would highly recommend and will most definitely return again next year.
A beautiful location and very comfortable stay. Property was very clean with everything you need. Shame about Storm Hannah!!!!
We took food, drink and games with us and it was so good, we didn't leave the lodge all weekend. Great place to chill and watch the wildlife swim and fly past or quack at your door.
Gathering of couples and friends to celebrate 2x 40th birthday. Nice spacious house with beautiful view of the lake.
Another highly enjoyable stay at No 7. As usual Watermark was a manicured picture and a delight to walk around.Mild irritation to find dishwasher was not working properly but house otherwise was perfect for the seven of us. Will be looking forward to our next visit.
Great location for visiting the Cotswold and for being centrally situated. The house was well furnished and had everything we needed. Heating was very heat and miss and at times the house was unbearably hot. Some of the rooms need a bit of repair work done but all in all was a lovely stay.
V good,wife like the place good for a base to see the rest of the Cotswolds very clean lake go trout fishing, fish around the 2lb mark, lot of carp in Isis lake as well,
Loved our stay here, would highly recommend and we will be back! House was perfect - great view across the lake. Enjoyed walks round the lakes, evening dinner and family games at the brasserie on site, and day trips to local villages and adventure playparks. Had a facial at the de vere spa, which was amazing. All in all a really great week - thank you
Booked this place for my 60th Birthday with the family ,we all had a great time , we did water sports on the lake , had nice food in the lakeside Brasserie, used the BBQ & hot tub and was very impressed with the high standard of accommodation and everything provided . We walked into the village and had a great night in the Royal Oak .
From booking, to the actual stay, Orion holidays made this weekend break the best one ever! Mark, Ollie and the team were so friendly and helpful and could not have been more accommodating. The accommodation was brilliant, and perfect for a family weekend away! Very child friendly and excellent additions such as stair gates! Can’t wait to book again through Orion holidays for our next break!
The house was well equipped and located to provide a relaxed weekend for a multi aged group. Twin bedrooms slightly too small.
Lovely view and house had all the facilities . Plenty of bathrooms for number of guests . Kitchen was well stocked with utensils . Just one negative - the sofas were tired and not comfortable and one was blocking view . Orion staff very attentive and all needs were given attention . We will return .
The property exceeded expectations. We were incredibly lucky with the weather but we had a wonderful holiday and all hugely enjoyed ourselves in your very well positioned and comfortable cottage. The location was excellent, the kids loved the swimming pool and the bike riding. We would love to come back.
Had a fabulous stay at Waters Edge in The Cotswolds. It was so relaxing and peaceful. The lodges are first class and contain everything you need. The added bonus of a jacuzzi and barbecue was amazing and a terrace with a beautiful view. Would definitely recommend.
Had stayed twice previously so we knew what to expect. Very well equipped and comfortable. A good family holiday
A very good place to stay between house moves. Good to see all the birds while walking in the nature reserve. Although no beavers!
All of the family, grandparent, son and daughter-in-law, grandsons thoroughly unjoyed the stay, conditions and surrounding area. Fishing was excellent, so to were the games facilities. Local food was very good in pubs restaurants, Summer lake .brassiere visited many times. All round great time!!!!!!
Problems finding property as signage and parking not clear in dark. Very few places to eat out without using car. Very dark on suite walking back from small restaurant / shop. Felt let down as expecting much more on estate for it's size.
We visited spring lake and booked a lodge to be lakeside and make full use of the Waterski and wakeboard boats which it is ideal for other than the fact the lake was closed for a full day and only open for half days. This meant the only time we got to use the lake where the lodge was located was on our last day after we checked out of the lodge. Not particularly ideal. The lodge itself was clean and comfortable and we would recommend booking but if you book it with lake activity in mind you might find yourself back and forth to 4Lakes which is what we had to get on the water. Food on site is...more
The house was perfect for us all. It is our second stay at the site and against n so much to do and very safe for the younger members of the group.
Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. My family loved walking around the lakes, fishing and going out on a katakanu. The warm outdoor pool was perfect for the kids and they went swimming every day! This was our 2nd stay in Tide Cottage and round recommend.
Our group, made up of two families, spent a fantastic weekend in this large but still cosy cottage at the beginning of June. The spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area was light and airy. The view over the water was so beautiful and relaxing to look at both from the inside through the huge sliding glass doors and the outside while sitting on the ground floor or first floor balconies. Having unlimited use of the pools, sauna and steam room at the ArtSpa made the holiday extra special and we definitely want to come back again.
Although the location of the property was great, there were a number of faults that could be put right. The mattress in the main bedroom was very poor and most people would not want to sleep on it, the upstairs bathroom definitely needs attention to the maintenance and was quite shabby and unclean in places as was the kitchen, did not expect to have to clean a barbeque before using it so left it alone, various stains on the carpet in the bedroom, would not return to this particular property.
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!
Really enjoyable stay other than what I mentioned above, not your fault I should have mentioned it when booking. I loved the tablet for information, one thing we had a problem with was the 5 girls next door as the walls are very thin and not sound proofed, we had 2 days of noise we couldn't sleep, but they were young and enjoying themselves! We were amazed at how well the accommodation was equipped.
Really good if you are looking for convenience when fishing. We were pretty much fishing from the lodge, that is how close lodge 8 is to a fishing peg. I have 2 elderly parents, wife with our 3 month old daughter and a young Bulldog so I was never to far away from them. With the added ‘pet friendly’ factor, this was pretty much perfect. Although just for balance, price wise comparably to deals on short city breaks in Europe, but still horses for courses, this was fit for purpose. Great long weekend all in all, thanks Orion Holidays, you guys were over helpful and informed, you define delivered...more
A LOVELY BREAK FOR MY WIFES 70TH AND WE TOOK 3 LODGES FOR ALL THE FAMILY AND GRANDCHILDREN. EXCELLENT PROPERTY IN LOVELY CONDITION AND THANKS TO THE OWNERS
This venue provides spacious and well-appointed accommodation in the heart of the Cotswolds. With four bedrooms and bathrooms, ample living space and a small garden area outside overlooking a lake, this is the perfect place for both family or group holidays. The house was spotless and the beds very comfortable - always a bonus! The on-site facilities are also fantastic - with a restaurant and shop, swimming pool and spa, children's playground and tennis courts - you won't get bored. Not to mention lovely walks around scenic lakes. Finally, being located in the heart of the Cotswolds, there a...more
It's a fantastic lovely place very quite great for walking. Great walks around the area to walk the dog. Good fishing on site to give you a challenge especially if you fish the big lake. Very good holiday home but a little update on sofas would be nice. A nice touch is the welcome plate especially the biscuits. It's a bit pricey for a weekend away but would go back as we have several times.
The property was well positioned, clean, warm. Kitchen area was good. Teas and coffee supplied was a good idea.
Wonderful 3 bed cottage , perfect location for a few weeks away - kindly allowed ya to bring dog and cat so everyone got a break - Orion sorted everything for us , thank you Guys !
Nice enough little holiday home, however ... Our party was two families, comprising of 3 teens and 4 adults and I have to say it was a bit of a squeeze with the twin rooms being only just big enough for 2 beds and no room to manoeuvre around them. The second double had no wardrobes and occupants had to use the storage space on the landing which was just awkward - the twin rooms also had no wardrobes, just drawers. There was no heating thermostat so we found ourselves constantly too hot or too cold. The master bedroom only had double doors no window so airing the room at night was also awkward...more
It would have been nicer if the trees outside the sitting area were a little shorter so the lake could be seen.
Overall the house was comfortable and clean but there were a few things that let it down slightly like the dishwasher not working very well. The customer service was very good and the access to onsite facilities, like the pool and lakes were great.
