    “We enjoyed staying at The Skydeck and the surrounding area is beautiful.”

    The spa was open for swimming and was nice and clean, the Ballyhoo restaurant was lovely and the food really good. We managed to have local takeaways 2 nights and they were nice but expensive. On the whole the Skydeck had everything we needed but the lack of blinds/curtains on the 2nd floor ( living area) made it very uncomfortable to relax. We were lucky that we had some good weather while we were there but being unable to block out the sun made it too hot, like a greenhouse. When we opened ...

    The spa was open for swimming and was nice and clean, the Ballyhoo restaurant was lovely and the food really good. We managed to have local takeaways 2 nights and they were nice but expensive. On the whole the Skydeck had everything we needed but the lack of blinds/curtains on the 2nd floor ( living area) made it very uncomfortable to relax. We were lucky that we had some good weather while we were there but being unable to block out the sun made it too hot, like a greenhouse. When we opened the patio doors to let in some cool air we got an incredible amount of bugs in the accomodation. We couldn't possibly keep the patio doors open in the evening as the bugs were even worse. I understand that being close to a lake increases the chance of this which is why I don't understand why the owners wouldn't put in blinds and air conditioning or even just a fan considering you can't open windows. This was such an issue that it would prevent us from booking the Skydeck again.

The property

The Skydeck is located on Howells Mere overlooking the Site of Special Scientific Interest, and with stunning, far reaching views this is another high quality property in one of the most prestigious locations on the Cotswold Lakes.

Inside the owners have created an amazing, contemporary holiday home, which has clearly been developed with self catering holidays in mind.

On the first two floors are five good sized bedrooms most with terraces and views towards the water, leading to the top floor - an open plan living space with 360 degree views across the lakes and surrounding countryside.

Finally there is the 'skydeck' itself - the very top floor - an outdoor roof terrace with exceptional and interrupted views for miles.

Wow!

Additionally, the property, of course, is situated within a stroll of the multi-million pound Artspa facility - with its indoor and outdoor heated pools, which really complete the package This is an excellent self catering holiday home with the added flexibility of an on-site restaurant - we are quite sure you will agree!
