Cherry Lakes is a small, very private and exclusive estate in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park, on the edge of the pretty Saxon village of South Cerney. Cherry Lake Cottage is a large, 3 double bedroom detached cottage in one corner of the estate, set on the banks of the River Churn and only 20 meters from the beautiful 5 acre, Willow and Alder tree-lined Cherry Lake.

A new luxurious Jacuzzi Hot Tub has been installed in a private area behind the Cottage on the bank of the River Churn. The Hot Tub accommodates up to six people and comes with built in mood lighting as well as a music system into which you can 'dock' your I-Pod. What better way could there be of spending some time with friends or family than lying in the Hot Tub gazing at the stars?

Cherry Lakes is an anglers dream, with all levels of Carp fishing in the two very different lakes with Carp to mid-30lbs, and is a bird lover's paradise with over 70 species recorded. It is a must for all those who want to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

The Cottage is a spacious family home, and recently decorated and furnished to a high standard . Outside the french doors, is a lovely, sunny patio overlooking Cherry Lake - a wonderful place to sit on those long summer evenings.

It is a great place to explore the Cotswolds from, or simply watch the large TV in front of the log fire, or take in the tranquil surroundings and wildlife around the Lake from the patio.

The Central England/Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds is the largest officially designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' in England. The area is well known for gentle hillsides ('wolds'), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so 'typically English' where time has stood still for over 300 years.

Local attractions range from the Cotswolds Wildlife Park and the Cotswold Country Park and Beach, popular with children, to museums, parks and gardens for everyone. Not to mention the many quaint country pubs with a great range of ales and delicious, locally sourced menus.

A great base to come and enjoy the Cheltenham Festival and Gold Cup in March, the Badminton Horse Trials in April, and the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford in July.
