Set on 1 on the 150 Cotswold’s lakes Moorhen Lake House is the perfect base to enjoy everything that is on offer in the area. On the lake, and a few steps from your door, you will find a small brasserie offering a selected menu and bar and also a watersports base where you can go wet and wild and try your hand at waterskiing, wakeboarding or ringo riding.

If this all seems a little fast-paced then there are so many other options to try. You will find sailing, canoeing, and paddle boarding on the next lake. Bike hire, angling and even the biggest inland beach in the UK all within a mile or two.

The biggest attraction of the area is the walking and wildlife, no matter what time you visit the lakes the scenery is always changing and there is something new to see every day. The famous Thames path snakes all the way through the lakes and down to the Saxon town of Cricklade and even onto Lechlade.

Welcome Hamper

Perched on the water’s edge Moorhen Lake House offers a sanctuary for all and gives a great first impression.

An open plan downstairs is complemented by stunning bi-folding glass doors that stretch across the back of the house. They ensure the house is filled with calm and tranquil light whilst showing the lake off in all its charming glory.

An ever changing picture of water-skiers, swans and rippling water can be enjoyed from the comfort of the sofa, or fold the doors back and the living area takes on a new and exciting feel. The outside space becomes an extension to the house, an ideal spot for alfresco dining, and the hot tub in the deck makes the perfect place to watch the world go by.

Upstairs offers three bedrooms and a family bathroom. More stunning lake views can be found from the master bedroom. You will also find within a few steps of the house a lakeside brasserie and a great children’s play area.

The perfect holiday cottage in Gloucestershire.
