This stylish lake-facing water lodge offers comfortable accommodation for up two six people and we can make arrangements to accommodate an extra child, if requested at the time of booking. Unlike other properties in this area, we offer a little bit of luxury and individual style. The Rocklight has been decorated to a very high standard to reflect the maritime connections in our family and it has been furnished with unique pieces of furniture and luxury, handmade sofas.
The lodge has an open plan dining room and lounge on the ground, with direct access to a large decking area overlooking directly onto Isis Lake. The entertainment in the lounge area is fantastic and designed with families with children in mind. We have a huge, 47 inch, flat screen 3D, smart TV and we offer several 3D DVDs for families and young kids. We also have reliable Wi-Fi and a great collection of Wii games for most ages. The feedback from guests tell us that kids love the entertainment offered. Cots and high chair are also available.
The kitchen is fitted with all modern facilities: dishwasher, washer-dryer, microwave, oven, ceramic cooker and fridge-freezer. There is also an extra large toaster, kettle and a state of the art bean-to-cup German coffee maker. There is a brand new bathroom downstairs (rain shower) with under-floor heating. Table, chairs, sofa and cushions and a barbecue are provided for use on the decking.
Upstairs, the main bedroom is furnished with a King size bed and it offers stunning views over the lake via a Juliette balcony. The second bedroom offers a double bed and the third bedroom has two single beds. A family bathroom (bath&shower) with granite worktop complements the upstairs area.
The Lodge is ideally situated within walking distance of the playground, sports field, river stream, tennis courts and games pavilion. Staying at the lodge you can obtain access to the spa facilities at the Four Pillars Hotel (supplement to be paid directly to the hotel). All sorts of water sports such as kayaking, wake boarding and water skiing are available in the locality. Two (18 hole) golf courses serve the area where the property is and fishing is allowed directly outside the lodge on Isis Lake (carp fish). If you are interested in fishing, there is also a trout lake and similarly, private fisheries offer day passes. You can also hire bikes in the area and enjoy long rides and walks in the very safe dedicated network of paths. There is also a beach to swim in at the Cotswold Country Park and a dedicated swimming area for dogs.
The Lodge has been decorated following the maritime traditions in our family. The Lodge has taken its name from a vessel called Rocklight which peacefully navigated the British waters in 1890s. However, an intriguing legal dispute arose between the owner and crew of the Rocklight and another vessel called Darro. In the lodge, you will see the original Admiralty papers related to the case, as well as replica boats and lots of other nautical details.
We pride ourselves in offering a different holiday letting experience, in very stylish surroundings decorated with unique pieces that tell a story and the most up to date technology to allow you to enjoy great entertainment in great comfort!
As part of our service, we email all our guests a compiled guide to the area, containing interesting information on day excursions, eateries and activities in and around the lakes.
Why not stay at the Lake and drive-and-park in Cheltenham during the races? We offer FREE CAR PARK during races' weeks, only a few minutes away from Cheltenham train station where you can jump onto one of the race free buses!

"An absolutely wonderful Lakeside Lodge to visit to chill out and relax"
We have stayed at the Rocklight twice now and love it there. It is perfect, so cosy and relaxing and peaceful there. The decor of the lodge is fab and to the best quality and everything you could need is at hand. It is wonderful to sit out on the decking by the lake watching the swans and the ducks. Lots of lovely nearby walks, and local places to go to eat or just for a drink that are walking distance. Absolutely perfect and we look forward to going back soon. Most recommended to family and friends.
Gill, Many thanks for your kind words. We work very hard to offer a relaxing and stylish environment for our guests and are constantly improving The Rocklight so that even our repeat guests can find something new and interesting in the house when they come back to stay there. We look forward to welcoming you back soon again! Kind regards, Maria

"The Rocklight is truly amazing!"
Our family loved staying at The Rocklight. The new beds in the Children's room are really comfortable and the house is kept to a very high standard. The entertainment area is great and kept both children and adults happy every evening. There are loads of things to do in the surrounding areas and the landlady kindly provided us with plenty of information and details for our daytrips. We have stayed in the lakes before but never in such a beautiful and homely property and we already look forward to coming back.
We are delighted that you had such a great time at The Rocklight. We work very hard to make sure that our guests enjoy their holiday as much as possible. We have recently refurbished the children's room and it is now really comfortable and cosy both for kids and adults. We look forward to welcoming you back any time!

"The Rocklight simply rocks: we loved it!"
We booked The Rocklight in Feb for a long stay with our kids. We were absolutely bowled over by the high standards and the beautiful, stylish interiors. This is the third time that we have rented in Isis Lake and know lots of friends who also regularly rent here. However, this lodge is on another league and we couldn't believe it is so reasonably priced! Our previous properties had old furniture and little style, whilst this is amazing and we didnt want to leave. We loved the modern kitchen and the German espresso maker, the owners provided us with coffee too, which is a great touch. The kids absolutely loved the huge 3d tv and playing dj hero on the Wii. The bedrooms are calm and clean and we just could not fault it. The host is kind and communicative and left us some gorgeous home baked pastries for breakfast. There is so much to see around the area and the lodge is conveniently located within a stone's throw of the fantastic playground! We certainly be back to experience again a holiday in the lap of luxury! Thank you, Maria!

"One of the best experiences ever!"
Maria's communication and willingness to help was exemplary! The accommodation had everything we could think of. The lake was soothing! The ducks were welcoming! The games room/facilities on the grounds were excellent! We had a lovely time! Although we did not do ourselves, we did see others fishing! The 3D TV was large. The broadband worked well! Plenty of places to visit around. Just to name a few: Cirencester museum well exceeded our expectations. Visiting the origin of Thames was exhilarating! The little village of Burford was very cute! Overall, we had an excellent time! But most importantly and one more time, Maria's communication was the best part of it! I simply wished all hosts were like you!
