Pretty Family Retreat, near Cotswold Water Park (SKYDECMC)

The Property is a cracker! Located on Howells Mere and with stunning, far reaching views this is another high quality property in one of the most prestigeous 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 the good sized bedrooms most with terrace areas 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 is the 'skydeck' itself - the very top floor 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 and we are quite sure you will agree!
