The Lodge at Lake 12

The lodge at lake 12 is one of our favourite stopping off points at the end (or even the start) of a busy day on the lake. I can certainly vouch for their oat milk flat white and flapjacks having had them numerous times whilst getting our lodges ready for guests. The log fire in the cafe was something of a magnet during a cold winter. The lodge has only been around for a couple of years – slightly delayed during COVID but now a regular hive of activity. It has both indoor and outdoor seating and is dog friendly inside and out. The seating outside provide some great views across their lake and there is nothing quite like seeing those colourful sails billowing out across the lake. The lodge has great coffee, friendly staff and serves a variety of snacks, cakes and sandwiches. They now also provide a street food menu which is worth trying – basically its different foods from around the world There is plenty of parking and you will find an eclectic group of customers there from locals, dog walkers, cyclists, water sport enthusiasts and many, many more.,

Asha’s Indian Kitchen at the Crown in Cerney Wick

The Crown at Cerney Wick ‘Asha’ meaning ‘Hope’ and ‘Prospect’are located at the Crown in Cerney Wick, just a mile or so from our homes on Waters Edge. Asha are part of the Relish group that have a number of restaurants and cafes in the area including the Waterside Kitchen, Relish cafe and the Old Prison at Northleach. Asha’s is one of our favourite places to eat with their menus being a great mix of classic and contemporary Indian food so generally something for everyone. The Crown has been around for many years and is also a very traditional pub with a lovely log fire with plenty of seating outside the restaurants. In the summer outside seating is also an option. Staff are always friendly and extremely helpful – the restaurant tends to get very busy so booking is always a good idea! Details can be found here

Kingfisher lodge was the perfect location for me and my husband to get ready at the morning of our wedding, one up and one down with our bridal party and groomsmen. We only stayed two nights but was able to easily cook, relax and prep ahead of our day, as well as use the lovely hot tub (video instructions on how to use this were so useful). The big bath tub was also super lovely and the beds comfy too.

The location itself was very pretty, we loved looking out onto the lake. We were lucky enough to have some geese and their goslings right outside the door for our trip.

Our only negative was that the bins were a bit of a distance to go to get rid of our rubbish at the end of our trip.

Would definitely come back for a longer stay with family or friends!

Excellent stay at Jo & Barry's home. The house was stunning and oversees a small lake - very peaceful and we enjoyed watching the local ducks swim. Amenities were all in order (inc. jacuzzi!) and Jo and Barry were very helpful and responsive hosts.

We all had a lovely couple of nights to celebrate my son’s 30th Birthday.
Smooth checkin and easy to understand instructions.
A beautiful place to stay with everything you need . Really homely and very comfy beds.
Extremely comfortable with Prosecco & cake on arrival!
Just wish it could have been longer.
Would love to return in the future.
