Guest Reviews

Fantastic autumn break10 November 2023

“Had a great stay! The house was just what we asked for, for our annual family get together. Well equipped, plenty of space for all the family activities. Great location for lakeside walks, restaurants and pubs close by, just what we needed. Grandchildren and pups had a great time - as did the adults!”

Perfect weekend celebration13 September 2023

“We had a wonderful family celebration at 45 Summer Lake. It was a perfect celebration venue. The quality was exceptional & the facilities the lake afforded were delightful. We took our own inflatable paddle boards & canoe. We also hired a hot tub. We had an idyllic & would recommend it to anyone.”

Family lake fun23 August 2023

“Great location for a family holiday. We spent a lot of time in and around the well equipped lodge, paddling on the lake, walks to local pubs for lunch, tennis, reading in the sunshine on the decking. It was a relaxing yet tiring holiday at the same time!”

Highly recommended, great location!15 August 2023

“Stayed at the landings on lake 16 last week with family.
House was spotlessly Clean, very well furnished and exceeded expectations. Service from the watermark team (especially philippa) was excellent from time of initial enquiry down to checkout. Would 100% recommend watermark and the cotswold water park for a relaxing, luxury uk break.”

The most incredible week10 October 2023

“We wanted to move in. The house was immaculate, styled to perfection and we loved the upside down living which made the most of the stunning views over the lake. The location is a dream. We hired paddle boards and kayaks and the kids were on the lake every day. We loved that everything was so close by and the whole family became pizza addicts after eating at the pizzeria nearby. We will 100% be rebooking for next year.”

Highly recommend19 September 2023

“We stayed at 21 Summer Lake and it exceeded our expectations. The rooms were spacious and clean, everything we needed was supplied and the location is basically perfect! The activities we arranged with the kids were so close to where we were staying (archery, paintball etc.) and there are so many great places to eat nearby. We also have two dogs and being able to walk them around where we were staying was fantastic.”
