Why the owner loves 8 On The Lake

8 on The Lake is our getaway for a few days from our very busy lives in central London. Within 90 minutes from home we are relaxing in this idyllic retreat. Calm, comfort and convenience are words that come to mind. Once we have relaxed, we love the ability to get active and social. The wonderful sports and spa facilities are only a few minutes from our house. Sailing on the lakes, cycling around the 650 acres or joining in on one of the team sports events is a great way to unwind. Those in need of more holistic treatments love the spa. Having great activities for our children, some which we join in on and some just with their new friends, keeps them so happy. We find No 8 is where we get together with extended family and friends, lots of room for up to 12 and a wonderful setting for entertaining. All the beauty and attractions of the Cotswolds are nearby, although we rarely leave The Lakes by yoo, other than maybe to refresh our pantry from the wonderful food shops in the local villages.
