Very Good

“House stay at Christmas”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2018

Fabulous house, plenty of room for 10 people staying with 5 double bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms, lovely to overlook lake and to feed the swans/ducks, excellent family Christmas, nice sized kitchen for cooking Christmas dinner, family enjoyed walks from house and use of swimming pool, heated outdoors was a particular hit in the middle of Winter! Would definitely stay again.

“A super stay ...”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2018

The property was just what we were looking for in regards to our catch up weekend with a few new little additions to the group in the form of babies ... a great size, lovely and clean and well located in the complex just 5 minutes walk from the pool and pub! Would certainly recommend :-)

“Family friendly Cotswold Stay at Velvet Lodge”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2017

Great weekend at Velvet lodge. Excellent facilities to accommodate the 10 of us. The house was large enough to feel comfortable for so many of us. The house was in an excellent position with plenty of areas to sit outside & enjoy the fresh air and surrounding countryside. The house was clean, well equipped & I would have no hesitation in recommending it to other large groups. Information prior to arrival was again excellent and ensured we could make the best of our time at the property.

“Spacious lodge with beautiful setting in the Cotswolds”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

During February half term myself and my extended family organised a 4 night break to the Cotswold's staying at Velvet Lodge. The lodge itself was spacious, well equipped and set on a beautiful lake. The views took in both sunrise and sunset and although the weather was freezing (the lake actually froze over) we were able to go for lots of walks around the park. The youngsters were kept entertained by the x box, the movie room and the swimming pool. The lodge is a very sociable house and was big enough for our large family and dog. The swimming pool was perfect to tire out the children and although busy (due to school hols) was exactly what we wanted to keep ourselves busy. Unfortunately the heated outdoor pool was closed due to being the winter months as that would have added to the experience! The organisation of the rental was extremely efficient and emails were answered immediately this ensured the whole process was stress free. Would thoroughly recommend the lodge and the location is perfect to explore the cotswolds area.

“Ideal meeting place”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2014

We needed space for all the family to meet up to celebrate a birthday. Six adults and four children stayed here with comfort. Lovely home and the owners were kind enough to cater to our last minute questions and requests with no fuss at all. Super home on a super estate.

“Beautiful, modern and spacious house in a stunning setting”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2014

A great place to stay with family or friends. The house was well stocked with essentials and it was in the perfect spot to access the spa, tennis courts, walks, lakes etc. It was very clean and spacious. The owner gave us some great tips on what to see and do and was very helpful.

“Fantastic peaceful piece of heaven!”

We arrived on the Friday night so it was dark, got inside the house one word WOW! In the morning the views from the balcony amazing peaceful beautiful place, grounds spa all beautiful, if you get a chance you must stay at this little piece of heaven!

“Excellent Property, Gorgeous Surroundings, Very Relaxing!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2013

A wonderful 4 Bed roomed house in a lovely serene surrounding. The Spa facilities are immaculate, the swimming pools delicious to swim in even during late October! A wonderful weeks stay was had by all in our party! Including two little ones of 2.5 years old!

“We had an amazing time and are booking to come again it was so good”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2013

We were a group of 9 friends looking for somewhere to have a get together within fairly easy reach for all. The location was geographically spot on and visually stunning. The lakes are beautiful and tranquil and the lodge itself was a perfect blend of stylish yet comfortable and very well equipped. We couldn't have asked for more. Stephanie was great at the booking stage and John gave us some great pointers on where to go and eat & places to visit once we arrived. Cannot fault the place and we are booking again for next year.

“relaxing and luxurious in tranquil surroundings”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2013

The house was a real treat, being warm, clean and very comfortable with a lovely view from the back windows of the property. The upside down layout worked really well and makes the most of the property. Comfortable beds, lots of hot water and all the mod cons and electrical gadgets you could need. We had a truly lovely weekend and the use of the spa was an added bonus.
