Large Group Retreat, Cotswold Water Park

Set on the edge of the lake and with views right across the water, Ducklings is a perfect spot for a large family or group gathering! Modern and contemporary on the inside and within a quiet location on the Lower Mill Estate it offers all the best aspects for a weekend away or a more active week's holiday. The magnificent Artspa with various indoor and outdoor pools, plus gym, sauna and treatment rooms is a really attractive feature as is the peaceful set up of this particular area of the Cotswold lakes. Furnished and styled in a cool, attractive fashion, the home has been created with one eye firmly on making the most of the local environment with natural light is everywhere and with so many open glazed areas, the internal spaces simply feel vast! We really like this property - it gives a lovely and welcoming sense when you're inside. It is perfect for families with the facilities moments and also the natural environment where walks, cycles rides and plenty of outdoor activities await. 'Swallows and Amazons'!
