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!!!
Things like children’s dishes were provided, fully access to sky channels helped with the kids, location was close to the play area, could have done with some children’s board games as there were adult games but none for younger kids. However that is a minor thing, have beds were comfortable and the standard was amazing. Thank you.
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
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
Isis 31 is a lovely lodge and was perfect for our family of 5 to use as temporary accommodation for 4 weeks. It had everything we needed for our family. The location was great with the beautiful lakes and there was plenty around to keep the kids entertained at the park, soft play area and river/lakes. Good size and well equipped. Would definitely recommend.
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.
location was great, accommodation perfect, weather brilliant, disappointed that we were unable to stay longer !!!! We will certainly come back again later in the year.
A beautiful location and very comfortable stay. Property was very clean with everything you need. Shame about Storm Hannah!!!!
A group of 7 of us stayed for 3 nights. The apartment was absolutely stunning & would love to stay there again. We just relaxed all weekend & enjoyed the view. We ate in a few local pubs & got a taxi to the local village which was fine. The apartments itself was clean & really felt like a taste of luxury. We could have just done with an extra champagne glass as there were 7 of us & will be 8 next year. We are without doubt considering booking next year. Thanks for a lovely stay.
We had a most pleasant stay at Carpe Diem, Nr 7 Isis Lakes, the accommodation an location were ideal for our trip visiting local attractions/facilities and also surrounding locations including both Cirencester and Oxford. The Lake being just yards from our rear terrace enabled me to introduce our grand children to the sport of fishing in a very simple way catching a couple of fish each without getting bored. The choice of available activities would meet any ones requirements from pleasant walks to water sports - we also had a great afternoons fun learning archery located just the other s...more
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.
A great base to explore the Cotswolds. The site was lovely and well maintained,the houses were situated around the lakes and not all on top of each other. Great place to take the dogs with lots of space and walks . The house was lovely and well equipped spacious and light with all that you would need. We enjoyed a very relaxing two week stay the weather was brilliant allowing us to make use of the whole site .
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
We loved this place! Beautiful space and gorgeous views. It had everything you could ever need and hot tub was a big treat too!
A very good property located in a great place to explore the Cotswolds. The accommodation is in a great setting, which was quiet, safe, clean and relaxing. I would consider using this property and Orion in the future.
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 .
Having been to this area and property before it was nice to return as we knew what to expect. We had surprisingly good weather and we even had lunch out on the decking - weather not as nice last June!! We had a lovely relaxing weekend.
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.
We stayed at Waters Edge over New Year with 2 other couples and our dog. We had the most amazing time! As soon as we arrived we felt at home, the whole area is so relaxed and everything had been thought - the house (kitchen especially) was so well equipt and clean! The bedrooms are all a great size with ensuites so makes your stay comfortable when travelling with friends. The hot tub is a great addition, it was very clean and we were please to see maintenance men twice in our 3 night stay to check the filters and water in the hot tub - we used the hot tub a lot!! There are a few places wi...more
We have stayed in Clearwater 82 several times over the past 5 years & we love it. Lower Mill Estate is a very special place to us & our two children now aged 6 & 8. It is perfect for a family with kids of all ages. It is not cheap accommodation but if you are after a high end escape this has so much going for it from stunning natures, beautiful walks, Ballihoo restaurant, tennis courts, Astro football, beautiful indoor, outdoor & natural swimming pools...Perfect for good old fashioned quality family time.
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!!!!!!
The cottage exceeded our expectations and is much nicer than the photographs, which do not do it justice. It is comfortable and very well equipped. The location is amazing with incredible views across the lake. It is quiet and peaceful. It is also very close to the lovely swimming pool and tennis courts. On the downside, there is only one proper shower and it is located downstairs, and the shower room is tiny.
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
Natalie has been super helpful and the place has been just wonderful for our family. Big thanks to Orion for making it happen and the helpfulness with our stay here :)
On first impressions the property seemed clean, bright and in good working order, however as the weekend progressed we came across several problems, which on their own would have been irritating but together, were extremely disappointing, particularly given the cost of the property. I have provided a list below: 1) the shower in the master bedroom did not work, we managed to get a few dribbles but there was not enough pressure to get a flow of water for a shower 2) the toilet in the en suite was dirty on arrival 3) blinds in both twin rooms didnt work 4) the large blind in the master...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!
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
We had a really nice stay at the lodge over 3 days. The location is great and looking out on to the lake was fantastic. The weather was still a bit cold to fully enjoy the large wrap around deck but were did manage to squeeze one BBQ in. We weren't given the Pass card when we arrived from the gate house and we had to specifically all for it the next day. We also accidentally forgot to unplug an I-Phone charger from one of the bedrooms when we left. I called the next day to ask if it could be sent back to us when found, sadly we have not had any feedback since so we assume it was never found. S...more
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.
My husband is disabled and apart from the steps at the front it was convenient for him although the downstairs bedroom was not the standard of upstairs. The lodge was clean and comftable and we would visit again.
Lovely Cotswolds stone cottage, tastefully decorated and in great condition. A short stroll to the swimming pool, bike hire, play area and obviously lakes. Restaurant also very close by so all-in-all everything you need for a beautiful, relaxing break. The acid test (I asked the children if they’d go back) was a resounding ‘yes’.....summer or winter!
The property was well positioned, clean, warm. Kitchen area was good. Teas and coffee supplied was a good idea.
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
This was my first time at this location and myself , wife and children thoroughly enjoyed it. we had some minor housekeeping issues which were dealt with immediately and with politeness. I would definitely consider spending another break there .
Cotswold water park is charming, pastoral and very pleasant. There are tennis courts, a lovely little pool, table tennis and a sauna. The cottage was also very pleasant, clean and equipped with everything that was needed. We had a great time and it was a pity we did not stay any longer.
