Stylish Lake Lodge in the Cotswolds
Lodge | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This stylish lake-facing water lodge offers comfortable accommodation for up two six people and we can make arrangements to accommodate an extra child, if requested at the time of booking. Unlike other properties in this area, we offer a little bit of luxury and individual style. The Rocklight has been decorated to a very high standard to reflect the maritime connections in our family and it has been furnished with unique pieces of furniture and luxury, handmade sofas.
The lodge has an open plan dining room and lounge on the ground, with direct access to a large decking area overlooking directly onto Isis Lake. The entertainment in the lounge area is fantastic and designed with families with children in mind. We have a huge, 47 inch, flat screen 3D, smart TV and we offer several 3D DVDs for families and young kids. We also have Wii and offer a great collection of Wii games for most ages. The feedback from previous guests tell us that their kids loved the entertainment The Rocklight offers!!
The kitchen is fitted with all modern faciliites and there is a brand new bathroom downstairs (shower) with under-floor heating. Seating and a barbeque are provided for use on the decking.
Upstairs, the main bedroom is furnished with a Kingsize bed and it offers stunning views over the lake by a Juliette balcony. The second bedroom offers a double bed and the third bedroom has two single beds. A family bathroom (bath&shower) complements the upstairs area.
Staying at the lodge you will have access to the spa facilities at the Four Pillars Hotel (supplement to be paid directly to the hotel). All sorts of water sports such as kayaking, wake boarding, water skiing are available in the locality. Two (18 hole) golf courses serve the area where the property is and fishing is allowed directly outside the lodge on Isis Lake (carp fish). If you are interested in fishing, there is also a trout lake and similarly, private fisheries offer day passes. You can also hire bikes in the area and enjoy long rides and walks in the very safe dedicated network of paths. There is also a beach to swim in at the Cotswold Country Park and a dedicated swimming area for dogs.
The Lodge has been decorated following the maritime traditions in our family. The Lodge has taken its name from a vessel called Rocklight which peacefully navigated the British waters in 1890s. However, an intriguing legal dispute arose between the owner and crew of the Rocklight and another vessel called Darro. In the lodge, you will see the original Admiralty papers related to the case, as well as replica boats and lots of other nautical details.
We pride ourselves in offering a different holiday letting experience, in very stylish surroundings decorated with unique pieces that tell a story and the most up to date technology to allow you to enjoy great entertainment in great comfort!
