  • "Situated in a lovely setting in the woods, Waney Lodge appeared to be miles from civilisation but in reality you could reach Lechlade within 5 minutes in the car."

    Perferct for our seven year old granddaughter who loved the freedom of the woods, the farm animals, the play areas and the swimming pool. Would recommend.

  • "We’ve been to this cottage before so knew what to expect."

    No TV no WiFi total detox from modern life. Cosy wood burning stove, this is one up from glamping think camping with hot running water.

  • "We enjoyed our holiday in the woods, inside the lodge was nice, bed was really comfy & shower was great."

    My daughter loved meeting the different animals on site & my 4 month old enjoyed his first time swimming in the pool, I would say the pool water needed refreshing. Lodges are quite close together so not much privacy from the other occupants but would be good if you were booking them both as a group.

  • "Really lovely cabin in the middle of woodland."

    Loved seeing the huge variety of birds. I understand that deer & badgers can be seen as well. Lechlade is walking distance. Perfect for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds. Would definitely book Waney Lodge again. Clean & welcoming!

  • "The process of booking was really smooth and the organisation on site for getting keys and checking in was great."

    The location was superb, sitting in a nature hub we saw deer, rabbits and too many birds to mention. We went there deliberately to get away from TVs and WiFi so the lack of facilities in that respect was a bonus. The kitchen facilities were basic but adequate, and I should have read the details more closely as the lack of freezer is mentioned (not even an ice box). The shower was great nice and powerful and hot, which is lovely after being out all day walking. I became very adept at lighting the wood burning stove which, especially when it snowed, made the whole thing very magical, as the Danish would have it Hygge.

    It was very nice but cottage next to ours brought their dog which is great but left it to howl and bark all day while they went out which was not enjoyable for us
