"We feel very fortunate and grateful to have been able to stay at this AirBnb. It is a modern, clean and comfortable space in a peaceful location. I would highly recommend to any couple looking for an escape from London."
"Absolutely loved the lodge! The views are beautiful and such a lovely area to be in. We had everything we needed and more for amenities, including special little touches for us. Plenty of space for relaxing, and such a comfy bed! The design and architecture is very clever, with specifically placed lights and trees etc we felt like we had a lot of privacy. We’d love to comeback again and visit in the warmer months to appreciate the outside decking even more! If you want a nice little break away, this is the place to go."
Wonderful weekend for two in an incredible setting. We’ll definitely be back!
"Absolutely stunning. well worth it. Looking forward to coming again when the sun is out!"
"Our anniversary weekend could not have been more special at this little house on horseshoe lake. It is amazing how all the essentials have fit into such a compact space, yet it all feels very spacious. The house has been very well designed and set up! The hosts were very responsive and everything was clearly communicated. I could not recommend this house or the hosts more. Thanks again!"
"Very lovely weekend, great host who gave us a list of places to dine and things to do. 100% recommended, all our friends are asking us for details!"
"Beautiful house in a stunning and very peaceful location, the service and communication from the host was exceptional."
"We had a great weekend at Angela’s place. Florina was quick to respond to all out queries beforehand. She provided all the basics we needed and more. The place was very cosy and the log burner was nice to use on cold evenings. The view from the deck is stunning. It’s very secluded and private with only 2 other houses on either side, but at least 50 metres away. You can walk to South Cerney to Coop and local pubs which took us about 20min. We would definitely recommend booking this place. Thanks again."
"What an amazing place in such wonderful scenery. Will definitely be back!"
"We had a fantastic stay and loved having a cosy place to return to during a rather drizzly January weekend! Everything was extremely clean, check-in was super easy, and communication really good. We hope we’ll have the chance to come back one day when the weather is better to really make the most of the lakeside location!"
"The perfect little get away. Incredibly clean and so easy to get to. House is very warm and cosy yet modern and sleek. A great place."
"Very accommodating and easy to communicate with, Great location, design and layout! Highly Recommend"
"Fantastic place on the water. It's possibly even better than in the photos. Very peaceful location, but still close enough to pop into Cirencester. The house was spotlessly clean, and Florina thoughtfully provides a number of essential and unexpected provisions."
"We were blown away as soon as we got to the property and fell in love with the place! We were greeted by Florina who was really welcoming and kind. There was everything we could have possibly needed which was really convenient. Florina was kind enough to buy us a cake and a bottle of prosseco which was very thoughtful. The location of the property was stunningly beautiful, with views of the grasslands, pond and lake. The location is really convenient with the cotswolds lake centre and boathouse pub a few minutes drive away. We will definitely be back very soon and highly recommend to book yourselves at this beautiful place for an escape like no other! We were so sad to leave our home for 2 nights more than anything! Thank you much for an amazing time and tremendous hospitality!"
"As soon as you arrive it feels relaxing. The lodge is stunning, contemporary, spacious and luxurious. The outside space is just as good. Me, my partner and our two teenage daughters loved it here."
"Great host with an amazing place. Could not recommend more - can’t wait to visit again!!"
"Can#t recommend this lodge highly enough. A stunning view over the lake from the architect designed luxury lodge. |Very secluded and private. Was a perfect stay."
"This home is beautiful and stylish. With amazing views of the lake from every corner, it has wood burner to keep you warm whatever the weather. There are water sports within walking descend, and beautiful villages like cirencester,Bibury a short drive away. The host was amazing and respond quickly no mater the weather this home is romantic stylish and comfortable and an experience you must have."
"If possible, this place is even better in real life! We stayed here for a romantic weekend and it didn’t disappoint! The lodge is perfectly positioned nestled amongst the lakes with the beautiful woodland giving you the right amount of privacy, making you feel like you’re completely alone with a beautiful view of the lakes! The interiors are done to a high spec, with beautiful decor and plenty of light throughout the lodge. Florina made us feel so welcome with little touches including flowers and a birthday cake and was always quick to respond to any questions we had as well as recommend local walks and pubs. Day to night, you can easily spend hours cooped up here watching the scenery and enjoying the log fire. It’s almost too good we don’t want to tell people about this hidden gem...but we will! We will be back!"
"Truly the most fantastic place we have ever stayed !! A perfect venue for my new wife and I to celebrate our belated honeymoon. A completely serene, private and relaxing venue that offered everything that we could want (and more). Thank you to Florina and Mr Simon. We look forward to seeing you again soon !"
"Island lodge is a real find, a gorgeous lodge that is very stylish and everything is brand new. It's secluded and very private and made for a special birthday treat. Great communication by Florina and couldn't recommend enough!"
"The island lodge is such a wonderful place to stay. It is a beautiful setting (we could have spent hours just looking out the windows) and was so cosy inside with the log burner. The extra touches were also appreciated and we can’t wait to visit again."
"Incredible lodge... one of a kind. We had a wonderful winter stay and will be back back!"
"We had an amazing time here. Florina was the perfect host - she was extremely quick to respond to any communications we had before arriving and during our stay, and was there to meet us when we arrived and show us around. We loved the cake/wine you left for us and that you had lit the fire before we came, so the house was lovely and warm! The house was completely spotless and the view is even better in real life than in pictures. There are two other houses nearby and one going up across the lake, but with big distances between and we still felt very alone/isolated. It was extremely quiet. You will definitely need a car as the only things close by were a village with just a couple of pubs and a small supermarket, but once you're in the car, you'll want for nothing outside of a few minutes' drive away. The beds were really comfy and all the linens very soft. Be warned - there are no blinds in this house, so the sunlight might wake you, but you'll be so thrilled to be waking up in the Cotswolds that you won't mind. There are very basic amenities - you have everything you need for a couple of days, but if you're planning to stay for longer and cook big meals, you might want to bring your own kitchenware and cleaning products. Some wooden spoons would have been nice! We suspect that people might leave these as they go, but we were the first ever guests in. Overall we had a fantastic time, would happily return, and will recommend to all our friends."
"Fab secluded stylish place"
"This house is absolutely wonderful, and doesn't disappoint. The pictures are an exact match to what you see when you arrive and we really didn't want to leave! Our host was fantastic, super quick responses and thoughtful, nothing was too much trouble. The property is totally magical and has everything you need to hide away for a weekend. All amenities have been carefully thought through, excellent check in instructions. We can't wait to go back and wish we had booked it for longer! Thank you Florina!!"
"We had an amazing time at Island Lodge. Everything was spot on! Extremely clean with all the amenities, easy to find, beautiful and stylish lodge in an amazing location. We are already planning to come back in summer! Aline & David"
"Stunning property in a lovely location. We had a great time!!"
"We spent a relaxing and peaceful Christmas at Willow Lodge. The property is just as lovely as it looks in the pictures, and we were impressed at the quality of the overall design and finishes. The festive treats and decorations that greeted us when we arrived were a thoughtful touch. We spent hours watching the birds on the lake and enjoying the views. The woodburner works a treat, and kept the whole place so warm and cosy. When we weren't on the sofa, the Lodge was a great base to explore the local village and surrounding water parks on foot. We appreciated how well-equipped and organised Willow Lodge is. Everything we needed was to hand. The check-in instructions and Florina's responses were efficient and helpful. Highly recommended!"
"We loved staying in the Willow Lodge so so much, it was clean and beautiful, so well equipped with lovely little touches and a nice welcoming and homely feel. I didn’t want to leave! The house is made almost entirely of glass but still feels like the most private and safe place you could be. We received friendly messages and good level of communication via the app but it was not at all imposing - we were left to our own devices and felt truly relaxed for our 3 night stay over New Year."
" A stunning space in beautiful surroundings. My fiance and I rang in New Year in the lodge and after a hectic end to the year, the relaxing surroundings were just what we needed. Florina was brilliant to deal with and made the process even more enjoyable. thank you! "
"The home is straight out of a catalogue! The deck , fireplace, kitchen, interiors, the water, the quaint walk trails outside - it's beautiful! The house is very thoughtfully stocked up and clean. We had a wonderful time, would be back soon!"
"A must visit! The pictures don’t do it justice, much better in real life. Secluded and picturesque, perfect for a romantic weekend away. The local town only 10 minute drive, everything you need. Just an absolutely perfect place, 5 star.
