Inviting Big Cottage, near Cotswold Water Park (BOTANYMC)

What fabulous views! What a home! Located down a little walkway and with relaxing views extending right across the lake, this holiday home is simply heart-warming, it just makes you feel welcome the moment you arrive. The location, the lakes and the facilities make this one of the best choices for families. From your front door you can walk or cycle for miles across open countryside weaving through lakes and forna, alternatively you can stroll in less than 5 mins to the super-smart indoor pool, or how about arrange for a beauty treatment in the spa? It's all here and there is something for everyone! The property is spread across three floors with the open plan ground floor and ceiling to floor glass doors throwing light inwards. Upstairs are five well proportioned bedrooms and bathrooms, most with great views. We love it and for good reason. This is perfect for a large family group surrounded in a contemporary home and within one of the Cotswolds' most exclusive destinations.
If you can find this property less expensive elsewhere, tell us, we'll beat it!
