  • "We enjoyed a lovely week."

    Quaint, cosy cottage - perfect for a few days exploring the area. Warm, comfortable & clean. The stairs take a bit of getting used to and their steepness wouldn’t be for everyone. We also wondered, as the small box room upstairs can be used as a dressing room, whether a larger double bed could be accommodated. Royal Oak ( good food ) & Plough pubs within easy walking distance. Some great walks from the front door up into Southam and onto Cleeve Hill. Also ideal for heading into the Cotswolds to the likes of Stow & Bourton-on-the-Water. A mile walk to the racecourse which for us was the main reason for staying.

    Plenty to do and see in the local area. Great pubs for food in walking distance.

    Thanks Gwen for your lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed the local pubs and restaurants - it's great to have them within easy walking distance and also to be in such a peaceful spot. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely, comfy cottage."

    Everything we needed and so nice to have the garden to sit out. The stairs are steep so you just need to be careful. Great location in a lovely village. We will definitely be going back for a longer stay.

    Thank you Robin for your lovely feedback. We are glad to hear you will be returning for a longer stay and it was great that you made use of the garden and summerhouse. Property Owner

  • "Had a very pleasant stay at Lake Cottages."

    The cottage is in a very convenient position for walking the northern section of the Wolds Way.

    Thank you Barry. We are very pleased you both managed to walk so much of The Cotswold Way without the use of your own transport! Hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic little cottage, perfect for 2."

    Having the bathroom downstairs was no bother, just your head if tall. There is a little study upstairs, which gives an extra room if you need it to chill out. Bed was really comfortable and plenty of cupboard space for clothes. Kitchen has everything you need and the garden was a lovely suntrap. I went for a break from busy family life and I will definitely be going back.

    Thanks Sara for your feedback. We are really pleased you had a great break and we provided everything you needed in the cottage. The garden is certainly a suntrap and the summerhouse gives a warm outside space even on a cooler day. We're looking forward to having you back again. Property Owner

  • "This cottage is in an ideal location for the Racecourse and for visiting Cheltenham."

    Three lovely pubs within walking distance all serving food. The property is immaculate, with sufficient equipment to be able to cook for 2 people, with full oven, hob, dishwasher and small fridge, with a small frozen food compartment. The bed was very comfortable, however it should be noted that the bathroom is downstairs and the staircase is fairly steep. So visits to the bathroom during the night need to be taken with care. Parking outside was no problem.

    Thank you Jill for your feedback. It's great that you were very pleased with your long stay at 3 Lake Cottages. We appreciate your comments as we have aimed to make the property as immaculate as possible. Locals are definitely blessed with having three historic pubs within easy walking distance and the historic five star Ellenborough House Hotel with a longer walk across the fields. For a treat it's a great place to dine, have afternoon tea or book a spa treatment. Property Owner

Upstairs there’s a refreshing double bedroom with cute sash windows and a neutral colour scheme, perfect for catching up on your rest.

Head outside to the rear enclosed garden, perching on the bistro table and chairs as you catch the last of the evening sun, or relax in the summer house when it gets a bit chilly.

Those looking to get their steps in can find the Cotswold Way footpath running nearby, offering scenic walking and cycling routes, before refuelling with a hearty meal at a local gastro pub or restaurant.

Take in the culture of Cheltenham with a visit to its wonderful art gallery and museum, housing a collection of important Dutch paintings dating from the 17th to the 19th century.

Why not catch the iconic Cheltenham Festival, running in March each year, while there’s plenty of other iconic festivals in the town, including literature, jazz, science, cricket, food and drink and comedy to name but a few!
