House overview - owner's description
The Lakes is set in the heart of the Cotswolds, between the towns of Lechlade on Thames and Fairford.
You have the classic British countryside on your doorstep, the estate provides access to a simpler rural life that revolves around charming local pubs, antique fairs and village fetes.
It is a food lovers paradise, a region where local produce is literally grown on your doorstep.
Weekends spent browsing local farmers markets and farm shops replace the supermarket run and fresh produce can be delivered directly, probably by the butcher or cheese maker themselves.
There is so much to do in this beautiful area and to list just a few of the wonderful activities, there is: Ballooning, Gliding, Rally Driving, Polo, Shooting, Climbing, Water Polo, Bowling, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Course Fishing, Knee Boarding, Wake Boarding and many more. Whatever you are looking for, whether it's to be active or simply relax, this wonderful area will be sure to provide you with the perfect escape.
SPA facilities also available on site - concierge details will be provided for full access to all amenities. There is a £60 induction fee for the Spa for the house. The price is fixed and it doesn't matter whether only one or all guests access the Spa.If you are lucky enough to stay over a weekend - every Saturday there is a guests and residents BBQ! This is already paid for so please go and enjoy. You are welcome to bring your own food to BBQ after 7pm. Mikey will BBQ between 6pm-7pm the food supplied by The Lakes.

Local pubs within walking distance include The Swan at Southrop. Look out for Richard and Emma Keene’s Cotswold Premium Lager, sold by the keg to a handful of local pubs. Like most of the fantastic local produce here, the Keenes like to keep their lager seasonal – wheat beer in the spring and a darker ale for the winter months.
The nearest farm shop, and one of the areas best butchers is called Foxbury, just north of The Lakes.
Daylesford Organic, a few miles away, specialises in everything that is fresh, seasonal, local and organic; handmade cheeses, bread, pastries, chef’s dishes and kitchen garden produce. Locally produced organic apple juice is available to buy from Benson’s Farm which can be delivered by the case.
Trout and smoked fish products are available in nearby Northleach, where Col Valley Smokery still uses bespoke traditional methods and brick kilns and supplies top retailers including Harrods. Of course we also have our own smokery near the fishing hut.
Nearby Bamford Barn sells luxurious homeware and contemporary clothing, whilst Cotswold Woollen Weavers in Filkins have their own looms producing traditional tweeds – suits, jackets, and hats in bespoke colourways, plus a garden and cafe attached. Their quality is renowned and Olga Polizzi, sister of Rocco Forte uses them to supply blankets for their hotels.
Antiques hunting will take you right across the country, though some of the best dealers are concentrated in Burford and Stow on the Wold. Visit Cirencester for traditional crafts including glass blowing, pottery, and one of the Cotswolds’ oldest saddle makers, Sydney Free (sculpture image by Caroline Sharp, exhibiting at The New Brewery Arts, Cirencester).
