Warm welcome from the owners. Lovely modern decoration. Felt like it was brand new. Very good quality bedding and towels.
I would say the apartment is primarily for people who wish to use the fishing facilities on site but was close enough to local amenities for us to be comfortable. There is a village a couple of miles away and lots of small villages to explore in the area as well as being close enough to bigger towns such as Cirencester in order to visit. We used it as a base for days out.
We visited in November which was lovely and quiet. Right on the edge of a fishing lake, would be great for a BBQ in the summer months.
There are outside stairs up to the apartment which could be a problem for some people or families but wasn't for us. I would say its perfect for 2 people, might be a squeeze for 4 adults unless you are out fishing all day! Oh and there seemed to be quite a few flies but you may expect that if you are by a fishing lake.
All in all we had a very comfortable stay.
