The Details...

The Lakes by yoo is a gated community where nature and design work in harmony to provide the ultimate rural retreat and lifestyle. A private estate set amongst 650 acres of idyllic Cotswold countryside just 90 minutes from London. The Lakes enables owners to experience the very best of the British seasons. By collaborating with ecologists and conservationists, our architects and designers have complemented the estate's natural assets and landscape, ensuring a masterplan that is environmentally sound, breathtakingly beautiful and functional. A playground for all ages to enjoy and discover!

A four bedroom, two bathroom, two-storey Lodge, located on Bowmoor Lake. Coln Lodge has a glorious south facing deck, with barbecue and large hot tub, from which you can enjoy the uninterrupted view across Bowmoor Lake, the largest lake of the estate. The house was designed by Kelly Hoppen, and is typical of her understated, elegant style. The house is kitted out with comfy pieces, with natural textures, and a relaxing neutral palette, and has a great den also, with a Nintendo. Features in this house, that sleeps six adults, or ten if four are children, include a log fire in the sitting room, a fully equipped kitchen including a Nespresso machine and all the technology you could ask for. Outside there's a barbecue, hot tub, outdoor games and two kayaks available to hire.

Optional extras include bike hire, delicious food with the onsite chefs, treatments and use of a gym, heated pool, sauna, steam and hot tub. Practice your tennis at the courts, or go fishing, boating or wild swimming, all within the estate. There are also nanny services as well as the 'Yoo' kids club which encourages children to take part in outward bound adventures, with some groups and activities being unattended by parents, allowing you some precious 'me' time.

Whether your preference is a pint by the fire or a Pimms in the garden, there are some wonderful pubs close by. The Five Alls in Filkin and The Swan at Southrop are worth particular mentions. Food lovers are also spoilt for choice. For meat, try Foxbury the butcher just north of the estate. Daylesford Organics specialises in handmade cheeses, breads and pastries as well as homegrown garden produce.

The nearby villages are idyllic. The market town, Lechlade is home to a popular family-friendly music festival and a churchyard that inspired Shelley. Burford, a picturesque medieval town, featured in Forbes list of Europe's loveliest places to live. Filkins was part of the estate of Sir Stafford Cripps and Southrop has a beautiful 12th century church. With 3000 miles of public footpaths and an idyllic, and flat, landscape, the Cotswolds is a walker's paradise. An afternoon stroll will take you past honey-coloured cottages, along drovers' tracks and through ancient beech and oak woodland. Or if you're feeling ambitious, why not spend a few days walking the length of the Gloucestershire Way: 100 miles from the Forest of Dean to Tewkesbury Abbey?
