Myself and my girlfriend booked Lakeview-Yurt and oh my what a absolute pleasure I highly recommend this Yurt... The hot tub is so nice,, the sauna is a great temperature and we burnt the chimenia all weekend... The Beckford Inn is superb for food.... The projector is a nice touch as is the bath next to the bed.....
Myself and my wife of 2 days decided to spend our 'Mini moon' at the yurt and absolutely loved it! Hidden away and perfectly secluded it gave us exactly what we were looking for after a busy couple of months leading up to the wedding.
Admittedly from the outside when you arrive (and we arrived in pouring rain) you could be a little put off but once you step through the door you couldn't be in a more welcoming and homely place. Everything inside was clean and modern and the underfloor heating and stove were added bonuses.
Even during a fairly miserable week in October we managed to be out in the brilliant hot tub at least twice a day and made use of the pizza oven and electric grill plate on the veranda which overlooked the lake. We even managed to jump in the little rowing boat and enjoy a late afternoon row across with the three resident geese in tow!
The position of the yurt makes it perfect to explore the local area and we spent a day at the races in Cheltenham and saw all sorts of other sites. The local pub in Beckford is reasonable but for a really great pub meal jump in the car and head to the Royal Oak in Gretton. Fortunately we discovered this place early on in the week and returned several times.
If you can manage to get in to the Lakeview Yurt then you won't be dissappointed. The guy who built the first 2 yurts was in the process of building a third which now appears to be open.

This is the last night of our 3 night stay. We have been blown away, the yurt and location is perfect. We met the owner who was very friendly, we followed him to the yurt and he showed us around, an indoor toilet has been added 2 weeks ago which is good, there is also a new Japanese BBQ which we used a lot. We cannot fault anything, the bed is most comfortable we have ever slept in and the bath is gorgeous. The local pub The Beckford Inn does amazing food. Sitting out on the decking overlooking the lake with a glass of wine and the chimenea burning has been the most peaceful thing I've ever done. We have adopted lots of duck and swan friends, bring a lot of bread :) There is a visitors book in the yurt filled with amazing reviews so not sure why people haven't also done TripAdvisor reviews. We are sad to go home tomorrow, it's been the most relaxing 3 days of our lives. Enjoy xx

|A romantic getaway|
A weekend at this wonderful oasis was a surprise from my partner for my 30th birthday and I can honestly say it was nothing short of amazing!
This place is a hidden gem, private and in a stunning setting. Located just beside a lake off the beaten track it is the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend.
A private hot tub means great nights under the stars (don't forget your champagne) and the candles around the edge are a nice touch. The private sauna looks across the lake and you can dine al fresco in the morning with a heated table to sit at.
The owner was very friendly and helpful and obviously cares a great deal about the property and the environment using a compostable toilet which is a lovely feature.
There's not much around the area unless you have a car but it is perfect for leisurely drives around The Cotswolds and is 20 minutes to Bourton on the Water which is worth a visit (with afternoon tea highly recommended). The Gardeners Arms in nearby Alderton does a lovely quiet meal and nice local ales.
Will definitely have to visit again sometime for romantic relaxation!!
