Wonderful house, fabulous location
Perfect place for that special family celebration (but take an outdoor patio umbrella if it’s sunny!).
Great for all the family whatever the age
I booked for my grandchildren, (aged 6,8,10 & 19), our children, (all in their 30’s) and my wife and myself, (65 & 70), for 7 days which were over far too quick.
We all had a great time together. The house has 5 large bedrooms, the 3 smallest grandchildren had the bunk bed with a double under and took turns in the top bunk.
They enjoyed the free tennis, play area and the swimming. They were so occupied they had no time to hire the bikes! The large lounge/dinner had a tv which was rarely used as they enjoyed playing cards with their auntie and grandparents.
We we local to many wonderful villages for day trips.
Only one very minor comment. We unfortunately arrived at the Mayfly mating season and we could not enjoy the spacious balconies over looking the lakes. Would we stay again, a resoundind yes from us all. John
Amazing house, such a lovely area and we enjoyed the spa/pool as well as the walks around Lower Mill.
Home from home and Nature too.
The location is fantastic on the edge of the lake with plenty of wildlife to watch morning, noon and night. Also some lovely walks around the larger site.
The property really was a "home from home"with all those little things that you forget to pack or have to go and buy lots of for just one meal. The entertainment equipment was great for the kids, and adults, although we didn't make use of all of it.
We used the on site pool, which has steam room, sauna and outdoor pool which gave us very stimulating temperature changes and must have been good for us!! The tennis court also had our patronage as did the on site restaurant for a family meal on our final evening, excellent food.
We had a great day out at the Cotswold Wildlife Park which was only 40 mins drive away.
Al in all a relaxing, healthy and enjoyable short break. A great place for family holidays.
Chillled, relaxed, family, fun times
Just got back from a weekend here with family for a surprise for my parents. The House was fantastic and location brilliant. We didn’t leave the park, just chillled in the grounds, at the spa and in the house. There were 3 families here but plenty of space for us all. The Xbox 360 Kinectics was a huge hit with all of us. Such good fun all shaking off some great moves. The house was very well equipped with plenty of crockery, glasses etc. Problem with the dishwasher was sorted out over a few texts, very accommodatjng. Lots of toilets and bathrooms so all Managed to get ready to go out for dinner with our anyone having to hang around. Would
Recommend the “wild duck” in Ewen, 10 minute drive away. Food amazing and staff & service excellent.
We will definitely come back again to Velvet Lodge as it has been a fabulous chilled weekend. Great way to finish off the summer holidays.
Large family home spacious and clean. Lovely surroundings and modern facilities
Had a lovely family break celebrating my parents 50th anniversary with our family of 5, my brother, sister, niece and parents. Beautiful memories for us all. Loved it 😘�
Cotswold Water Park is an area of some 40 square miles of man made lakes given over to recreation & leisure use
We are within a short walk to Somerford Keynes, a local village with a pub and a number of other small villages are within 5 minutes drive, offering local amenities like: Post office, Grocery shop and more Pubs.
The estate is located within the Cotswold Water park which provides numerous opportunities to explore either on foot, by bike or water craft, seasonal cable skiing is also on offer as are sailing, canoeing and windsurfing tuition/hire.
The are several golf courses locally.
An artificial beach on one of the lakes within the Keynes Country Park will keep the children entertained as will the local Butts Farm whilst Magic land in Cirencester is available for very young children if the weather is poor.
Horse riding and bicycle hire is also available locally.
Regular polo matches are played in & around Cirencester.
Cirencester is the nearest town and is only 10 minutes drive, where you will find large Tesco, Waitrose, M&S and a good variety of shops/boutiques, pubs and restaurants.
The town of Cirencester (formerly named Corinium was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times) is home to the Corinium Museum, the Cirencester Abbey (the longest known Saxon church in England) and host to regular market days.
Other popular Cotswold towns are within a 40 mile radius (Tewkesbury, Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Swindon, Bath, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon)
April 2008 - Online magazine has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswold's is 2nd Place!
The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswold's region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.
Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic
Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency
architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford-upon-Avon is just over 1 hour away.
