We stayed at White Willow Lodge for a family birthday in February so not all the facilities were available but there was still enough to occupy all ages with the pool at the spa a particular favourite. We had a lovely barbecue with great local produce from the local butcher and appreciated the generous welcome basket provided. The spacious rooms were very well presented with luxury bathrooms and fabulous wood burners. Communication from the owners was excellent and the deposit was replayed very quickly. A fantastic place for a special occasion.

"Perfect in every way"
This rental property is totally amazing. Firstly the house itself is extremely well appointed and every bedroom is very comfortable. The downstairs open plan living is superb if there is a group of you - we were a group of 10 and it was the perfect size.
Secondy, the location is select and the property has lovely walks around the lakes. Perfect for bird spotters too - we were lucky to see starling murmerations both evenings which was a real treat, especially right over the house. The location of the house really brings the outside in with wonderful views of the trees and lake - even in windter there is plenty to look at.
The spa is well worth a visit and again, beautifully appointed with a lovely pool, chill out area and gym.
The whole booking process was very easy and nothing has been too much trouble.
I would recommend this property and hope one day to return. Didn't want to leave!

"Stunning, stylish and luxurious"
We can't recommend this house enough. Stayed for 3 nights over New Year and it was just the perfect place to celebrate and relax with friends in luxury surroundings. Beautiful living areas and bedrooms with absolutely everything you need in the kitchen.
I can imagine this would be amazing during summer but we really loved being there in the winter, especially as there's a wonderful open fire, blankets, a big TV, huge open plan area to play games and eat together and you can visit the spa and pool too!
Very cool, very comfortable and super stylish!

"A stunning property in a wonderful location"
White Willow Lodge is an extremely comfortable holiday home, finished to a very high standard. The location in the Lakes complex is peaceful and relaxing and ideal for families. The spa facility was very much appreciated by the children and there are safe pathways for cycling. We didn't use the lakes for swimming or boating due to the time of year, but this would be ideal if the weather had been a little warmer.

"Breathtaking! Everything about the lodge is stunning"
Stayed at White Willow Lodge in November with four generations of my family. Each one of us had an amazing time! From the children and the teenagers to the 80 year old grandparents. It met all of our desires. The lakes and the grounds are beautiful and the lodge itself is magical! The photos we had seen previously were stunning, but even they didnt match up to the lodge itself. Much thought has gone into the design, and the decor is modern, fresh and clean.
We ordered an Ocardo delivery for the first night, which was a great idea. All the utensils were available in the lodge and the there is a large dining table which we all ate around comfortably. We arrived prior to the delivery, but were told that someone would be able to collect our order if it arrived before us. The open plan design provides a very sociable environment and the log fire made it so homely and cosy.
The staff at the Lakes by Yoo were extremely friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our party were happy and had all we needed. They had a great knowledge of the local area and were able to tell us lovely villages to visit.
The transaction was very smooth and easy. The owner of the lodge was very helpful and sent lots of information and ideas of things to do during the stay.
I couldn't reccommend this nightly enough!

"Beautiful House, amazing location"
We have just stayed in White Willow lodge for 2 nights. It is a very modern spacious brand new house on a lake in the Cotswolds.
It really has the WOW factor. It is very well equipped with everything you need, The whole place has a very luxurious feel with 5 bathrooms and huge open plan living kitchen area. The top floor suite has some particularly amazing views over the lakes.
Lakes by Yoo, is the holiday/2nd home estate that the house is on is very unusual has has a surprising amount to do. Everything is immaculate, the spa, the lakes the grass, the houses.
The favourite part for me was fishing. We just used the boat parked next to the house, used the free to use fishing rods and tackle in the fishing hut, also next to the house and went out on the lake not really knowing what we were doing. There are fish jumping all over the place. I wasn't sure what they were until I caught one. A 2ft Rainbow trout! and the lake is full of them.
walking round the site we spotted many other activities, including zip wires, trampolines, tennis courts basketbal courts, teepees, table tennis, table football, pool table.
As we went in early October, we thought the lake maybe a bit cold to swim in, but if you catch a hot spell it would be lovely. The lakes are crystal clear
It is only a 15 minute walk to lechlade down a footpath, the village contains some nice pubs and shops.
We all enjoyed our stay, and hope to come back again. Its very hard to criticize anything, but I feel I have to put some sort of negative. The kitchen is so modern and everything so hidden away, it can take a while to find cutlery etc. and the instant boiling water tap is quite ferocious, I think you could easily burn your self on the steam if you weren't prepared.
Other than that, I fully recommend staying here.
