"Everything you could need for a perfect weekend"

I rented this house for a weekend away with the girls. The location was even better than the pictures; its peaceful and sits right on the lake. There are other houses around but there is enough space between house for privacy.
Our morning swim in the lake was a bit chilly but the water is crystal clear. There were Kayaks and all the equipment readily available to use.
The spa facilities on site were brilliant. Everyone was really helpful . Definitely try the zip wire iover the lake if you can.
We had a really great weekend and wished we could have stayed longer.

"A little piece of heaven in the Cotswolds"

White Willow Lodge is simply breath taking. Stylishly decorated, stunning location, great facilities including the use of a rowing boat for fishing and kayaks; a truly perfect place to get away from normal life and relax.

We have just returned from a short break at White Willow with family and had a fantastic time. The accommodation is spacious but yet still feels cosy at night when the fire is lit (we didn't really need it but couldn't resist lighting the wood burner each night).

Although we had planned to do a bit of sight seeing, we preferred to make the most of our time at the Lodge so didn't venture very far. It is just the perfect place to sit and relax and watch the many fish swimming and jumping in the lake.

Our thanks to Caroline for such a perfect stay.

"Gorgeous house overlooking a beautiful lake in the Cotswolds"

We went for a long weekend with our kids and friends to this beautiful house. The location is wonderful and only 90 minutes door to door from London. The house overlooks a lake which makes for wonderful views.
The private estate it sits within has lots of facilities for the family to enjoy - fishing, zip wire over one of the lakes, swimming in the pool or the lakes, a spa and gym, cycling, canoeing and more. We were there for 2 days but could have happily stayed for a week or longer, there's so much to do.
The house itself is luxurious, lots of space to be together in but also more than enough space to enjoy some quiet time away from the rest in. The ground floor is a large open plan space with a modern kitchen with evertything you need in it, a large dining table (we comfortably sat with 11 at the table), a seating area with comfortable sofas by a big fireplace, and a tv corner. There is also a cupboard with games and dvd's etc.
On the 1st floor there are several bedrooms and bathrooms - all modern, stylish and comfortable. The master bedroom and ensuite is on the 2nd floor and is absolutely gorgeous.
We loved the house, location and facilities and also very much enjoyed the handy tips that the owners share in a folder for everyone who visits. We enjyed a fantastic sunday lunch at one of the locations they recommended.
All in all, everyone loved it.

"Great place for a peaceful weekend of luxurious indulgence"

Wow! I recently got back from the most restful weekend ever! Stresses immediately melted away as I drove through the forest to find White Willow Lodge. It's position, with the lake immediately outside was absolutely stunning and the interior didn't disappoint either. It had been beautifully designed with every last thing considerded. We enjoyed walking and cycling through the forest and had a great visit to the on site gym,pool and steam room which were clearly very well maintained. Caroline had kindly recommended a fantastic chef who came to the house to cook a delicious supper and a few of us treated ourselves with a fabulous massage in the comfort of our own bedrooms. It was the perfect place to get away from it all in absolute tranquility and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I'd love to return in the summer when I'm sure the deck over the lake comes into it's own.

"Fabulous accommodation"

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.
