  • "My partner and I was looking for a relaxing getaway for Christmas."

    We stayed in Maple lodge, when we arrived it was dark and Brendan said we could drive down to the lodge to unload. It was very well lit up and even Christmas tres lit up around the lake. Which I thought was a lovely touch. The lodge was very comfortable, warm with underfloor heating. Brendan had got the hot tub ready for us ( we was straight in it). Brendan was always available if you needed anything and a very friendly guy. What Brendan and his family have created at the lake is perfect for a back to nature relaxing getaway. If you are thinking of booking please do as you will not be disappointed. Thank you to all at Bridge Lake Farm keep doing what your doing.

  • "My partner and I have just returned home from a 5 night stay in maple lodge, we had a brilliant time."

    On the morning of our arrival Brendan sent a message offering to heat up the hot tub for us ready to use on our arrival (of course we accepted). Brendan was lovely and so helpful, always available if we needed anything and happy to help (even when my car battery died one evening he was happy to get the jump cables out and help me). The lake is beautiful and peaceful, we even managed to catch a little common carp in our fishing attempts. The llamas on the farm were lovely and let us pet them (with the bribe of feeding them some long grass we’d picked). We didn’t want to come home and already want to return. Highly recommend.

  • "Very clean and well maintained property with excellent outdoor space and good fishing."

    The owner, Brendan, was very helpful and takes a pride in the small complex of lodges. We stayed for a week with mixed weather and felt that the lodge was a little too cramped when the weather prevented use of the outdoor space.

    Brendan was very friendly and showed us to our lodge, picking us up in his golf buggy and taking us and our bags to our lodge. Everything was as advertised and just wonderful and relaxing. The hot tub was ready for us on arrival and lovely to relax in whilst looking at the lake. We had a very relaxing stay and I loved having breakfast on our porch in the early morning overlooking at the lake and watching the dragonflies. Any queries we had were resolved straight away by Brendan. We enjoyed walking to the surrounding villages too, all very easy and enjoyable. Would 100% recommend staying here and we hope to return one day soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    A big bonus was a cycle path of approximately 3 miles that led to a very famous and popular food hall! The hot tub was also a great asset, after a day of cycling, it was most restorative. It is a very good base for visitng many popular tourist attractions. We would definitely return to the lodge.

  • "What a lovely place!"

    great for wildlife & quiet for getting away from the busy outside world & relaxing with the view over the lake. Brendan keeps the site in perfect order & is always on hand to make your stay comfortable. The cabin was well designed with quality equipment & perfect for two while the hot tub was great in the evenings. Fishing was lively with loads of smaller tench, carp & roach but didn't manage to catch the larger carp. A short walk over the fields to the pretty village led to a good pub with friendly owners while 10min away is the pretty canal village of cropready & 40 min gaydon historic motor museum. Would definitely recommend this property & not hesitate to return.

    Everything was just as advertised, the lodge was spotlessly clean and well equipped, down to lovely thick white robes for the hot tub. The setting is stunning and the hot tub and fire pit were a definite asset, enjoyed every evening. My husband fished every day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, finally catching an elusive carp on his last day! Though you don't need to fish to enjoy your time at Bridge Lake Farm. If you are looking for a calm, chilled, relaxing break away from it all, this is the place to go!

Other than an evening to the pub for a birthday dinner we had everything we needed at the lodge and spent everyday in the hot tub. Theres something truly magical about Bridge Lakw, especially sitting in the hot tub watching the rain on the lake or watching the sun rise with a cup of coffee when everything is silent.

  • "Ten reasons to choose Bridge Lake Farm 1."

    The host faciliated an early check in and pre-heated the hot tub ready for our arrival. 2. The host provdied a warm greeting on arrival and helped with parking and taking our luggage to the lodge. 3. The lodge had suitable underfloor heating; which we could regulate, and that kept us warm when outside temperature was below freezzing. 4. The lake provides a beautiful and relaxing view from the ldoge. 5. Privacy is repspected - suitable blides on windows, a curtained gazebo outside and significant space between other lodges. 6. The lodge is close to picturesque local towns. We took advantage of the location and went on day trips to Oxford, Cotswold towns and Bicester shopping villiage. 7. The welcom folder contains infromation about local restaurants, pubs and village walks. We did the 11km pub walk. Please note, if you choose to do this walk not all pubs are open on Mondays and the Plough is no longer a pub and has been converted to a house. 8. The lodge itself is modern. We had access to wifi, Netflix and Prime this meant we didnt struggle with any first world problems. 9. The host was quick to respond to texts, always answered the phone and its clear he loves to make guests feel welcome, and, like us, want to come again. 10. Perfect stay for a romantic getaway or anniversaries.

    Brendan was extremely helpful and attentive if we had any questions, even met us at the car park in his golf cart on our arrival to drive us and our luggage down to the accommodation. Lodge felt very private- despite multiple lodges on site we rarely saw/heard a soul and being set on the lake had picturesque views. Surrounded by lovely walks around Chacombe, and a short drive to Banbury town although the 30 degree weather prevented as much adventuring as we would've liked. Gorgeous hot tub for evenings when it got a little chilly and the lodge had underfloor-heating which although we didn't utilise I imagine it would be very cosy in winter. Really can't complain about anything. The whole stay was magical and we will surely be returning. Thank you Brendan for everything- Tamzin and Ellis
