A Cosy Lake Retreat
Elsa is reached down its own private drive and is positioned beautifully behind coppiced silver birch trees and wild flowers, through which the lake can be enjoyed. This lakeside log cabin has 2 bedrooms and sleeps up to 4 people. The large comfy beds, made up with luxury bed linen, can be requested as either doubles, singles or as a combination. This part of the lake has large areas of reed bed which is home to much of our inhabiting wildlife – so keep a look out with the binoculars that come with the cabin. Elsa is the perfect sanctuary after a long day in the Cotswolds or a day exploring the surrounding nature and is ideal for those looking for romantic breaks with hot tubs or for small family holidays.
Spacious Open Plan Cabin Lift
The spacious open plan living area has a cosy wood burning stove, dining table and fully equipped kitchen, all in view of the stunning surroundings. The property has one modern bathroom with a good powerful shower and bath. The open plan English country style kitchen is designed and finished with modern appliances and you have all the mod cons you need to cater for a family feast or a simple meal for two. All utensils and crockery are provided ensuring a truly “home from home” experience.
Private Veranda, Beach and Fire Pit Island with a View
Opening out from the kitchen, glass doors face onto the decked veranda which is linked by a decked board-way through the silver birch trees and down to its own jetty – thought to be one of the best fishing spots on the lake. This decking is the perfect place to wine and dine during the day or on a summer’s evening. The decking has a traditional Finnish hot tub set into it (optional), a wooden table and chairs, and an open pit BBQ. A wooden swing chair has been hung between nearby trees and offers a lovely view over the lake – the perfect spot for a morning cup of tea. To the left of the house a foot bridge takes you to your own private island with beach and raised fire pit. A great place to enjoy the sunset from whilst toasting some marshmallows. This house is just behind our 4 acre playing field and is therefore great for guests with kids or for those looking for a pet friendly holiday cottage.
Luxury Holiday Cabin Touches
We provide a number of special touches that make your stay in this house even more enjoyable and relaxing. Elsa comes with its own rowing boat and life jackets so you can get out and enjoy the lake. Other comforts include under floor heating, crisp white Egyptian cotton bed linen and 5 star luxury towels. Two bins of logs are inclusive in your booking so you can keep your getaway as toasty as you like as well as enjoying the outdoor fire pit. Extra logs can be ordered and brought round during your stay.
