Libelle on Waters Edge Lake

Waters Edge is a stunning collection of contemporary-styled, luxury holiday homes in the Cotswold Water Park. These architecturally inspired lakeside holiday homes have stunning views over the 28-acre lake. Each property benefits from a large decking area, giving you the illusion of being suspended over the water’s edge.

Full Description

Waters Edge is ideally situated in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park, England’s largest wetlands nature reserve, only 5 miles from Cirencester and just 90 minutes from London.

Each property is extremely well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The spacious living/kitchen/dining areas make the property an excellent option for group holiday bookings, family gatherings, or a short break with friends. Each bedroom is large with luxurious en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom also benefits from a private lakeside balcony with seating.

Waters Edge is within walking distance to the picturesque village of South Cerney and Cerney Wick, home to some fabulous country pubs, local amenities and country charm. Enjoy water sports, fishing, walking and nature trails throughout the immediate area, or sit back, relax and enjoy the hot tub whilst enjoying the view over the lake.

Our favourite things to do

Go to a market at ...


Welcome to Cirencester, often referred to as the “Capital of the Cotswolds”. This charming market town is steeped in history, with roots reaching back to Roman times, earning it the title of the second largest town in Britain during that era. As you wander through Cirencester, you’re walking on layers of history. One of the highlights is the Corinium Museum, home to an impressive collection of Roman artefacts. Here, you can immerse yourself in the region’s past, exploring exhibits that tell tales of Roman life, the town’s agricultural roots, and its growth through the centuries. Stroll through the town centre and marvel at the grandeur of the Church of St. John the Baptist, standing tall since the 15th century. With its imposing tower, intricately carved stonework and beautiful stained glass, it’s a marvel of medieval architecture. In the heart of the town, you’ll find the Market Place. On Mondays and Fridays, the square is bustling with local vendors selling a variety of goods, from fresh produce to local crafts. It’s a vibrant scene that encapsulates the spirit of Cirencester. Lastly, don’t miss the Abbey Grounds, a beautifully landscaped park adjacent to the site of a former Augustinian abbey. It’s a perfect spot to unwind, with the pretty River Churn flowing through. Cirencester offers a delightful blend of history, charm, and Cotswold character – truly a place where the past and present meet. Experience it and let Cirencester charm you as it has so many before.

House Rules

We try to flexible and not to put too many constraints on our guests but we are also committed to looking after our homes.

We welcome up to 2 pets in Libelle Lodge but talk to us about your plans. Always let us know if you plan to bring pets (there is a small charge per pet) as we need to factor it into our cleans. We do not allow pets into the bedrooms and particularly onto beds. We recognise that keeping pets off the furniture is a challenge so you will find throws available to use please

No parties, hen nights or stag nights – this really isn’t the place for loud parties as many of the homes on this lake are occupied by year round residents. Unfortunately due to a number of past experiences we do not allow all male occupancy of our homes. Sorry guys!

And that’s really it – tell us about breakages so that we can replace where necessary. Larger damage and specialist cleaning we will need to discuss with you if necessary.

We just ask that you treat our home with respect and that you consider our neighbours when you are on the decking in particular as sound does travel a lot further over water.

A wonderful and cozy place, a nice spacious house and a view of the lake from the hot tub and the upper balcony - something wonderful. easy operation of the heating system and the entire house in general. A large number of kitchen items and, above all, board games which I did not expect there.

Stayed for my birthday weekend with family and friends and my dog. Great location with beautiful surroundings. House was perfect for what we wanted and a lovely chocolate cake awaited. We enjoyed the games provided to.
I would certainly recommend this property and may return in the future.

Amazing house! Lovely weekend stay for 5 uni friends. Lots of do but as it was winter time we took advantage of the hot tub and chilled out inside. Lovely walk on the Saturday with a lovely local pub close by.
The lake is gated and has residence on as well as rentals.
Would 100% come back.
