Imagine waking by the waterside. Watching the wind pulse along the lake casting ripples as you relax, dip your toes into clean, freshwater from your own private pontoon. Find a secret hideaway in the Cotswolds, the place you’ve dreamed about a thousand times. A place you can escape to time and time again. Unwind, retreat and recharge from the demands of a digital world, from the 9-5 and all the hours that no longer feel your own. Your home-from-home haven lies just 90 mins from London in the heart of the secret hideaway in the Cotswolds countryside.
There’s something about the water that always calls us home. As humans we have an instinctive bond with water – for survival, for life and relaxation. And for wellbeing it’s a call we at Watermark can’t ignore. Water has a healing power – it offers us calmness amongst the chaos, eases the mind, comforts us and connects us culturally. And our secret hideaway Cotswold resort is a holiday haven like no other designed for your delight.
Set in the heart of the countryside, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounding 150 natural lakes lies a private gated community – of secret, serene seclusion. An award-winning development of stunning New England Style lakeside houses and luxurious lodges for sale and hire, from 3-6 bedrooms, with hot tubs bubbling on the decking awaiting your arrival. Fresh linen and laundry facilities come as standard in each unique lodge – beautifully furnished to complement their Cotswolds’ surroundings. Wi-Fi, private balconies, moorings and en-suite bathrooms provide everything you need for a leisurely stay.
Whether you’re looking for a weekend escape, short self-catering break or a permanent holiday home, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the amenities at Watermark. Lose yourself in the landscape and take a leisurely lakeside stroll, take up tennis or enjoy a work out in our fully-equipped gyms. Or if the call of the water is just too strong to ignore – take a dip, get in, get wet and choose from a variety of water sports on your doorstep. For the thrill seekers there’s wakeboarding and water-skiing, for those that enjoy a slower pace sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing (Coarse and Fly). And if the open water temperatures are too fresh for your visit, the neighbouring spa offers all the benefits of the water with the added luxury of a heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna – letting you relax, refresh and recharge.
If you’re craving fresh air in your lungs why not enjoy a few holes of Golf. Hire a horse or road bike and explore the rich scenery from the saddle or sharpen your skills clay pigeon shooting and enjoy all the countryside has to offer. Not forgetting the Children’s Activity Park and zipwire for those with young adrenalin junkies ready to burn-off their energy in the open air.
From breakfast to lunch and dinner you can dine with delight, and often live music, at the Lakeside Brasserie restaurant. Catering for all appetites and palates from fajitas to wood-fired pizzas, soak up your surroundings and enjoy fine company and cuisine without the stress of entertaining.
Your stay at Watermark is a well-deserved pamper your future self will thank you for. An investment of time that will feed the soul. Picture perfect, your lakeside retreat will leave you longing to return time and again, with memories that will last a lifetime.
