We liked the open plan and brightness of the property- it was relaxing and inviting. After day and half felt rejuvenated seeing the lake at every turn created an embracing atmosphere, I have some stunning photos.

Fabulous, comfortable property, very spacious, beautiful view of the lake. Well stocked kitchen. My son and his wife brought our 3 month grandson and we had a fabulous time. We enjoyed the tennis court and kayaking. Short drive to Cirencester and lots to do and see including a wonderful Roman villa.

We had a great time! Beautiful location- Property was clean and well equipped kitchen apart from no cheese grater. Jayne was easy to contact and responsive. Jetty in much need of TLC and fixing - which we used at our own risk. Decking needs treatment. Bbq - you will need to bring disposables.

Our family of eight had an amazing holiday in the Summer Lake house. The open plan downstairs with the outside decking was ample room for all of us. Will definitely spend another holiday there.

Lovely house and situation. Lots to do in local area and water parks. House needs updating a little and a deep clean. Potentially a great base for a Cotswolds holiday once a refresh happens in the house.
