The Lake House

The Lakes is a private estate set amongst 650 acres of idyllic Cotswold countryside just 90 minutes from London, that enables owners to experience the very best of the British seasons. A joint venture between award winning developer The Raven Group and design experts Yoo, who formed a partnership to fulfil this unique and celebrated project, The Lakes is an gated community where nature and design work in harmony to provide the ultimate rural retreat and lifestyle. The Lakes by Yoo is a playground for all ages to enjoy and discover.

Situated in the midst of a nature reserve, The Lake House is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway or a family holiday. Just a 90-minute drive from London, The Lake House is situated on the exclusive Lakes by yoo near the town of Lechlade on Thames in The Cotswolds. The Lake House was designed by Philippe Starck’s team with its interiors designed by the owner to create a relaxing and stylist environment. It is located in 650 acres of unspoilt Cotswold countryside amid six clear water lakes. South-facing on the estate’s largest lake, every room offers breath-taking lakeside views.

The heart of The Lake House is the south facing open plan living / dining / kitchen breakfast room with full height French doors opening out onto the large waterfront deck.

The house comfortably sleeps up to 10 in four bedrooms – two en-suite – with the Sitting Room converting to a very comfortable bedroom five. There are two further bathrooms, one on the ground and one on the first floor.
The Lake House offers a wide range of amenities for the children including: travel cot, high chair, booster chairs, stair gates, potty, children’s table and four chairs plus a wide range of board games to keep all ages entertained. The Lake House includes a two-person steam room, claw bath tub, Sonos music system (Napster and LastFM), a wood-burning fireplace with logs supplied, a three-man kayak and life vests (for use late spring, summer and early Autumn) and an extensive DVD collection. The kitchen is fully equipped but if you wish to relax, the Lakes Concierge Service is happy to arrange bespoke catering from breakfast hampers to a chef for a special dinner party.

The Lakes is built on six clear water lakes and The Lake House is built on the edge of the estate’s largest lake. South-facing, the open-plan home is bathed in natural light all year around; and the south facing 1000 sq.ft. terrace deck garden is equipped with barbeque making it a fabulous vantage point for the glorious sunsets. On the estate is the exclusive Orchard Spa with a 20m indoor pool, sauna and steam room and fully-equipped gym. Experienced therapists offer a wide range of spa treatments and the Orchard Spa is available to guests between 2pm and 5pm daily.

Guest Book
We spent a fabulous weekend in Marks house for my mums 60th and it was the perfect setting for a fun packed weekend. The house is decorated beautifully and is so homely and comfortable…we all settled in straight away!

Our two young boys loved exploring – they especially loved the zip wire in the forest and the ‘big kids’ in the group even had a swim in the lake! The pool is great also for the kids – and the sauna was perfect for us adults for a ‘chill out’

We will definitely be going back and we were sad to leave after our fantastic weekend.

We rented the house for our family to stay in for a long weekend in June when we got married. The house is situated in an idyllic location with spectacular views. It is decorated to a very high standard and equipped with everything you could need for your stay for all ages. The owner went out of his way to recommend fabulous restaurants and to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We will treasure the memories of the breathtaking view, comfy beds and tranquil birdsong and can't wait to go back again!
