We had a great long weekend here in early July with another family of 3. The property was clean and tidy with lots of facilities. The location was beautiful and tranquil - with regular entertainment from the water skiing club - amateurs to professionals.
The girls loved seeing the fluffy cygnets too.
Alison responded quickly to emails during the booking process and was also very accommodating when I asked if we could arrive a bit earlier.
A visit to the information centre near The Boathouse is recommended too, along with a visit to The Boathouse. They are walking distance from the house too.
Please do not be put off by the previous review. Myself & 5 other girls had a fantastic stay in Camilla very recently; quiet, great location, lots of walking/running, the house has everything you need & is very cosy. Thanks to the owner for the welcome hamper with gifts - a lovely touch. The club house was a great place to watch the rugby, very good food & Guinness! When the lake opens for open water swimming in the spring I will be back with some triathlon club friends as it's the perfect spot for training!
visited with my husband and 3 teenagers for a relaxing week, the property was very nice and the location and views were out of this world, on arrival we noticed the washer was leaking and a few bulbs were out, we reported this to owner Alison who was very nice and said she would get the handy man to call around and fix, however he never came and Alison did apologise although this was not an issue for us. Alison popped over as we could not work the oven and explained that the airer was also falling to bits and she went straight to Tesco and bought us a new one plus a bottle of wine as a sorry which was a lovely touch.
The grounds are beautiful and all staff were very friendly, on our second night we heard a fight break out and unfortunatly my new car was damaged, however security were very efficiant and was sorted very well , i didn't let it spoil our holiday at such a lovely place, after speaking to locals this was obviously not a common thing.and would not put me off going again.
went on the crazy ufo on the lake and was fantastic, wanted to go on again but fully booked up all week so booking in advance is a must.
went top the outdoor pool in cirencester which was also very nice and reasonably priced.
visited beach which was lovely but wasp infested!!!!!!!
There wasn't alot to do or see near the lodges but perfect for a relaxing holiday.
