  • "We loved our stay at the lake yurt despite the rain, a little slice of heaven."

    There is so much wildlife nearby I wish we had brought our binoculars. We had a relaxing break away and would definitely come back. Cleanliness was good, but there were a lot of cobwebs inside the yurt.

  • "I really loved being at the yurt."

    I liked the hot tub, the films on the projector. I liked watching the wildlife.

  • "Kitchen equipment could be improved."

    Only one champagne flute, one pint and one half pint!! Two wine glasses was fine, but that was it. There was washing up liquid, and dishwasher tablets, but the dishwasher immediately said it needed salt and rinse aid, so we had to go buy that. Knives extremely blunt! Sauna not working effectively, takes a couple of hours to reach an acceptable temperature. Main thing was the cleanliness, the floor clearly had not been swept or mopped and the drawers and bedside table that pull out were terribly dusty and mouldy. The tap/shower head over the bath leaks really badly all over the floor. Don’t get me wrong, it is a beautiful and peaceful location, hot tub was great, I just think it is looking very tired, could do with a bit of tlc and better cleaning done.

    Animals and bird life fantastic. We think now it needs a bit updating and also rather than a dishwasher it could do with a small freezer as there are only 2 people and no need for a dish washer.

  • "Yurt could do with some general TLC."

    Not all the windows open, indoor table and chairs would be nice instead of a breakfast bar. Toilet facilities are okay for “No 1’s” but not for “No 2’s”, blocked several times. Hot tub has definitely seen better days, and could do with replacing.

    For peace and tranquility it is second to none ,and as for the wildlife, well, it's just amazing! So if you want to jump off the 9 to 5 grind, this is the place - immerse yourself in the sound of the birds, watch the otter play, see the kites and buzzards above and all from your own, very private hotub. We will be back a.s.a.p.

    I couldn’t recommend this place enough it is fantastic and completely faultless. Sitting in the hot tub to sitting up on the terrace watching the lake and out in the rowing boat to having a bbq next to the lake. It is so peaceful and the owners couldn’t have done anything more. We will be back very soon! Thanks for an AMAZING stay!

    We have been about 12 times and hate leaving. First time we took our dog Ginger and she loved all the wildlife and the farm terrain. We saw 6 deer, herrons, geese, 19 goslings in one family, barn owl, ducks, black swans and a sygnet, cormorant, squirrels, pheasants and king fisher; but no Partridge in a pear tree!! Can't wait until we return, very restful, relaxing and of course we drank and ate well.

  • "The best part about the yurt was the hot tub & amazing views of the lake - very relaxing."

    The yurt was stocked with nearly everything you need and bed was clean & fresh. Bath towels and robes were a great extra. However, the cleanliness of the yurt was not quite up to standard. When we arrived, there was lots of cobwebs and spiders especially in the bathroom. The toilet itself was clean but the bathroom was very grimy, the cupboard even had dead wood lice inside. The pipe above the toilet leaked rain through the ceiling and unfortunately these things really let the yurt down. The yurt also allowed for lots of creepy crawlies to enter including slugs, which we believe was due to the gap between the yurt wall and skirting by the bed and bath. The bath was lovely but was dirty when we arrived. As well as this, we never used the sauna outside due to the cobwebs covering both the inside & out which was a bit of a let down. Overall, the yurt needs a deep clean and ultimately the lack of cleanliness was what has let it down for us.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We live on site so it is a real shame you didn't contact us during your stay as we are very keen to ensure every guest has a lovely time. I am afraid spiders and cobwebs are part of the countryside. Property Owner

  • "The yurt was very dirty when we arrived."

    Did not feel covid safe. Very cold and damp in the yurt due to the skylight dripping water/condensation constantly unfortunately this also dripped onto the bed and made it cold and dampfor this reason we chose to drive home on the Thursday evening and did not stay our final night on the yurt.

    Thank you for your feedback. This is very out of character for this yurt as the feedback is always excellent. The owners are on hand to help you if needed during the holiday. The property is cleaned using the cleaning guidelines that we are working with for Covid 19. The owners provide sanitisers. The cottage is fitted with underfloor heating and this can be controlled to adjust the temperature for you. Once again, thank you for your comments Property Owner

    It didn’t disappoint at all! Beautifully peaceful surroundings, glorious weather, great food cooked on the BBQ and pure relaxation! Everything was as it should be, the owners were incredibly lovely and accommodating. We spent some time on the lake in the boat surrounded by inquisitive geese and black swans! We made friends with a gorgeous pink footed goose whom we named Pete! He would come right to us and ask for food! Not aggressive at all but very chatty and personable with us. We saw a gorgeous black deer in the nearby field and heard the owls at night! The projector screen and abundance of movies was a lovely touch. The kitchen was well stocked and the outdoor furniture was well used this weekend. The hot tub although glorious was a little too hot to use with outdoor temps of 31! But when we used it we were incredibly relaxed and enjoyed it immensely. Overall an amazing weekend and just what we needed. We would love to come back again for sure. Thank you Sykes and thank you to the owners for sharing this beautiful setting.

    I booked the yurt for a surprise engagement location and it was more than perfect. The owners were very friendly and allowed me a later check in than would be usual due to work, and also allowed me to decorate the yurt with personal touches for the engagement. Hot tub is lovely, in there most of the time and going out in the boat was a nice romantic touch. Only downsides if any would be the guese are very loud in the morning and the natural light comes through the ceiling so not much chance of sleeping in. Overall though highly recommend!

    Extremely secluded, not over-looked except by the ducks and if other yurters were out on their boat!. Thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub (hot and clean) and sauna overlooking the lake. Daily al fresco dining - including the chimenea oven, we managed to cook pizza, steak and sausages on it, perfect! And the "egg" BBQ is a beast once it gets going! One word of warning, there are a lot of spiders, so arachnophobes beware! Recommend the local beckford inn for great food - the shortcut through the deserted farm buildings at night was an experience though, bring a torch! The Star Inn at Ashford also good and better value. And recommend visiting local villages of Broadway (nice boutique shops and brilliant deli), the Slaughters (possibly most picturesque village we've ever been to) and Stow on the Wold for decent shops. Will definitely look to return in future.
