“Can't wait to go back there”
Reviewed 13 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Few of my friends and I went to the Cotswolds last month and stayed at the Osprey Lodge. I would just like to say that it's a truly amazing place. Beautiful, modern architecture combined with great views all around you. I just loved sitting on the sofa and looking out onto the lake through those great, big windows.
We had a great time using the spa as well. Treatments were not expensive at all and the pool was lovely.
The only little thing I could comment on is take a lot of food with you if you can't be bothered to drive 5 miles to the village as the Farmer's Shop is not the best stocked place to go food shopping.

I would highly recommend a stay here if you are looking for peace, spacious accomodation and excellent fixture and fittings. The hot tub was a real treat and made the trip worth every penny. I managed to host an excellent evening for my guests because we had plenty of room for games and the perfect surroundings. I would use this location next year when I organise another get together.
The houses around the lake are quite close together, so you do not get very much private garden space but as we usually meet in winter the house is perfect as its comfortable, warm and modern.
Thanks again, see you again.

“Stunning - would highly recommend”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Came for a group holiday with friends. Lovely warm welcome from a gentleman called Jamie, settled in fast as everything you need is provided.

Main living areas were spacious and offered an amazing vista, we especially loved the modern design of the villa and as a nature lover, how close you feel to nature. A couple of days it was raining but we were lovely and cosy inside watching nature through the wall to floor windows, keeping warm by the super hot fire! The flatscreen, WII weren’t used too much but handy to have them there. Plenty to do in the local area, as well as the Art Spa, us girls had a few nice pamper sessions there! Prices for treatments were reasonable, not as much as expected. And nice to be able to walk around the estate, you feel like you are in another world.

Kitchen was modern, spacious, well equipped and clean, all you need provided, and lots of fridge space so we all had room for our food.

Bathrooms were high spec and plenty for the number of beds. I must say I slept great there - beds are super comfy!

All in all our group were very impressed with the villa - stunning inside and out, fantastic location and we are planning our next visit for the summer so we can have some nice bbq's and hot tub sessions by the lake. Can't wait!

“Great Stay”
Reviewed 6 March 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Great location for the lodge. Plenty of walks and bikeing areas. Lodge is excellent accommodation for getting away from it all and really well 'cared for'. Decor is perfect and there's plenty of room for a group of people. Would definitely book again and recommend to my friends.
Only one minor hiccup is that the local pub was a bit too expensive for the quality of food.
