Cottage overview - owner's description

Orchid House is situated on an exclusive gated development, just south of the popular town of Cirencester in Gloucestershire. The modern, lakefront home makes a luxury base for those who wish to explore this beautiful part of the country, while the excellent facilities on offer make it a sensible choice for families.

Orchid House can comfortably accommodate ten guests across five spacious bedrooms, each room has its own touches of quirky style, whether these be edgy artwork, pops of colour, or fun lighting and accessories.
The living space is bright and fresh, open plan, again offering low key luxury and touches of designer flair! Perspex chairs, accents of fuchsia, wonderful wood-burning stove and seek, modernist kitchen result in a space that is stylish and cosy at once. Ideally set up for the family or group to arrive and just effortlessly slip into holiday mode; even by the standards of this estate as a whole, Orchid House represents privacy and seclusion, not overlooking other homes, this lis a true haven from the bustle and stresses of the modern and urban worlds.

The kitchen makes for sociable dining, whilst the lounge area is so inviting and warm-looking; far reaching lake views are present at every turn, the woodlands and and open ties, whilst the scope for outdoor dining is endless. There are not only two levels of balcony space, as well as ample decked veranda and lawn side picnic table, but there is also a seductive roof terrace, ideal for lounging, for cocktails once the children are in bed, or a breakfast as the lake and forest wake up.
For those looking for a holiday retreat that offers complete tranquillity, style, ample space for family or group time, effortless quality and the convenience of a resort-style complex, with every detail in the home and wider resort taken care of, within an unparalleled setting merging designer taste and natural beauty, simply look no further!

On the region's southern fringes, Cirencester is one of the major centres of the Cotswolds, and offers much more than just sightseeing. It's certainly a town with a history – at one time the second-largest in Britain – but it hasn't become a tourist hub in the manner of many of England's heritage cities, meaning it's even more of a joy for those who do come exploring.

You can get an insight into the history of Cirencester at its Corinium Museum, this being the Roman name for the town. Mosaics and artefacts bring the story vividly to life, and children can get involved too with special activities. Those who love art, nature or both will find something to please them at Cirencester's Elemental Sculpture Park, where more than 150 pieces are dotted around the woodlands.

You wouldn't expect to find many beaches in Gloucestershire, but there is one at the Cotswold Country Park at Shorncote to the south of Cirencester, a place made for family fun with a water park and children's playground. For a bit of culture, the town's Sundial Theatre offers a varied programme of events, and those with an eye for a bargain can explore the antiques and collectibles on offer at the Corn Hall indoor market on Fridays.

The town's excellent dining scene certainly shouldn't be overlooked – you will have no trouble tracking down anything from an artisan coffee to a Michelin Star three-course meal. Among the highest-rated places in town are Tierra & Mar, a great spot for tapas, and The Falcon at Poulton, where the food is restaurant quality and the setting is a delightful country pub.
