Such a big beautiful house! So homely and luxurious. I came for my birthday with my boyfriend and my dog. We were greeted with some lovely home made biscuits, a birthday cake, a bottle of prosecco and some doggie mince pies!
The house itself is so lovely, we loved that we could play any song you could think of throughout the whole house. It was also really nice to have a TV in the master bedroom and so many channels and movies downstairs. We appreciated the heating so much as we came in January and we loved the hot tub to warm us up after a day of walking.
Don't worry if you have forgotten something. Barry and Jo have probably already got it at their holiday home! Even had towels to dry the dog after long walks, dishwasher tablets and washing powder for the washing machine!
Amazing place had such a lovely birthday here and my family loved it too when they came over one day. We definitely will becoming back! If you would like a good priced holiday with amazing views, away from all the hustle and bustle but with shops, restaurants and pubs very close by this is the holiday for you!
My husband and I have just come back from a fantastic few days in the Cotswolds and what a fabulous time we had! The accommodation was beautiful and was equipped with everything that is needed and more! There was nothing that the owners did not think of.
Upon arrival, the owners were there to greet us and house was immaculate and very welcoming. They were able to show us around and ensured that we had everything that we needed for our stay.
Of course one of the highlights is the hot tub, which is a fantastic feature, as it allows you to take in the relaxing ambience that the Cotswold have to offer!
During our stay we managed to visit all of the local towns, which were in east driving distance and had a lot to offer! We will definitely be visiting again!
We have just returned from our wonderful two night stay with friends and our 2 dogs.
I can genuinely recommend The Retreat as a home-from-home break.
Jo and Barry have hit the spot with their attention to detail, providing a holiday home with all the little luxuries that make you feel like you've picked up your house and relocated it. Sonos sound system, Sky, coffee machine and hot tub to name but a few, along with the boutique-style interior make for a very comfortable stay.
Perfect to sit back and relax whilst watching life around the lake. Plenty to do in the local area too with lots of good places to eat and every conceivable activity covered on site and off.
We will hopefully be booking a return trip very soon.
We knew we would love this place as soon as we saw the photos! We stayed here over Christmas and the Cotswolds Water Park Retreat certainly didn't disappoint. Barry & Jo are so welcoming and friendly from the outset and on hand for any of your needs. The house is amazing - spacious and immaculate with fantastic facilities and of course the hot tub - pure luxury! Our timid Doberman was very happy here and settled easily. Located in a great area for walks or a drive out to many local attractions. We hope to stay here again one day, perhaps in the summer where we can put the decking and BBQ to good use! Many thanks Barry & Jo. All the best, Hannah, Dan & Rogue.
The wow factor hits you as soon as you enter the spacious living area. Having three good sized bedrooms this comfortable holiday home on three floors has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay - including your own super hot tub. We just did a long weekend but should have stayed longer. Wake up to an amazing view of the lake complete with ducks and geese. The kitchen has hob, oven, micro, coffee machine, large fridge and freezer and much more. If you don't want to cook the hotel restaurant just opposite is very good as is the Boathouse bar for more pub food. I would book this again without hessitation.
