FANTASTIC HOUSE FOR A MIXED AGE GROUP by Bernice Harvey, Solihull on 04/08/2014 on December 9th 2016
The house was beautiful, and the location was idyllic. It was a very relaxing experience and I would definitely return there. We had a very mixed age group with us, none the less all our needs were catered for! All in all, a fantastic house and amazing holiday!
WE'LL BE BOOKING AGAIN - OBVIOUSLY! by Anne Arthur, Warwick on 15/06/2015 on December 9th 2016
This was the second time we had stayed at Lake House. We returned because we love the remote location, the house is perfect for us with large kitchen and huge dining room. The two large sitting rooms enables us to have one for quiet activities and the other for the television and videos. The bedrooms and numerous well appointed bathrooms are all positioned so that no one has an adjoining wall and with small children waking early others are not disturbed. The fenced garden is ideal and safe for the children. We enjoyed the new hot tub this time! Easy parking, long walks and many places to visit if you want to leave. But we were busy on and around the lake this year on the small boat and fishing for Carp which were around 8 to 15 lbs. Obviously we will be booking again. The staff are very helpful and kept us stocked with logs for the log burner at night. Our two dogs love that bit especially. Our dogs are only allowed in the hallway and dining area but for potential visitors without dogs the house is immaculate with no evidence dogs have stayed there.
