What a brilliant location! Weather was wonderful, which did help.
We actually eat every meal, including breakfast out on the terrace during our stay - we didn't sit at the dinning table nor was the oven used!! the BBQ was used all the time.
Cabin is wonderfully spacious - it would have been handy to have a second bathroom with 6 of us - and I'm sure the layout could be changed to include this in the future.
Only suggestion I would have is to introduce recycling bins on site - there was no bins for glass/paper etc.
Have already recommended location to friends who have booked for Easter 2012!
The accomodation and location was good.

The accomodation was spacious and the location by the lake was good. As this was our first visit instead of going to our normal destination of the Norfolk Broads, we found the comparison by Sykes' description of being a similar destination to the Norfolk Broads, very dissapointing. Most of the lakes in the Cotswold Water Park are privately owned and in many cases cannot even be seen! They are not linked like the Broads and we spoke to a number of locals who were upset about what has happened to the lakes over the past 15 years.
A very good first experience!

A really good introduction to a holiday lodge. Our problem was that we were ladies in amongst fishermen--a slight change in location would have made this a 5 star holiday!
