THINGS TO DO AT THE LAKE
A visit to Log House Holidays is an opportunity to get back to nature, and there are a variety of things to do in all seasons. Our Welcome Pack comes with lots of ideas for your stay and can be found in your cabin on arrival. Don’t forget to check out our Cotswold Guide too for days out in the surrounding area.
Every log cabin has the option of a traditional Finnish wooden hot tub overlooking the lake for ultimate relaxation and romance. Heated to a perfect 40 degrees. Watching sunsets and sunrises from your steaming hot tub is always a highlight whatever the season.
We’ve provided each lodge with a fun lakeside fire pit. Waiting at your cabin is also a Fire Box with firelighters, matches, skewers and marshmallows. In the evenings, gather round the roaring fire with views across the lake and stars above and enjoy some toasted marshmallows. This is a great place to wind down at the end of each day and is perfect for making both family memories and romantic occasions. You’ll find a box of cosy blankets at your cabin so you can sit around the fire pit in all seasons.
Sometimes you’ve got to just turn off and our cosy cabins are the perfect place to do just that. Snuggle up in front of the log fire with a good book or catch up on that box set you’ve been meaning to watch. That’s what holidays are all about. You’ll also find a collection of classic board games to enjoy whilst you decide when your next hot tub will be.
The 2.5 mile circular track landscaped around the edge of the lake and through secret woodlands is great for walking, jogging or cycling. This is one of the best ways to see the abundant wildlife that we have here. With so much space to enjoy, our cabins are perfect for pet friendly holidays in the UK.
Our spring-fed clear water lake is great for swimming during summer months when you want to cool off. Take a dip from your cabins private beach or jump in from your rowing boat!
Bicycles can be requested with your booking or at any time during your stay, and they’re a fun way to explore the local area. The surrounding areas are mostly flat and we provide a number of great local cycle routes in your Welcome Pack as well as a local OS map. Our complete Cotswold holiday guide also has a cycling section with lots of good routes.
The Cotswold Water Park is fast becoming an important area nationally for over 200 species of birds. There is lots to see throughout the year from great crested grebe, starlings and kingfishers to bitten, nightingales and osprey. We have a tern colony on one of the gravel islands too which is fantastic to watch from a swing chair we have hung nearby. Take the binoculars we have left in your cabin and see what you can spot. The Waterpark Trust have created an excellent wildlife checklist for birdwatching holidays that you can find here.
With so many special spots around the lake, taking a picnic by the waterside is always a great way to spend an afternoon. In your Welcome Pack we have put together a map of the best spots for rolling out the picnic rug. Feel free to be as adventurous as you like though. It is easy to pass away the time by taking in the abundant wildlife and scenery that has made this place a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
