One of a treasured collection of eight  traditional Finnish log houses with their own lakeside hot tubs are exquisitely situated on this private 130- acre Cotswold Nature Reserve and SSSI that has been carefully landscaped for over 33 years. All the luxurious cabins have been thoughtfully positioned, secluded and away from each other so that you can enjoy wonderful, uninterrupted views across the lake all year round. 

It’s this seclusion that really sets us apart.

Island Lodge is thought to be the best house for spotting the abundant wildlife on this lake, having water on two sides. With a number of gravel islands and reed beds in front of the cabin, guests can enjoy the beauty of a breeding tern colony as well as regular otter sightings. Hidden away, you enter this property through a winding gravel drive. This one-storey house sleeps 4 in two bedrooms. The beds can be doubles, singles or as a combination.

Stunning sunrises over the islands in front of this house are a regular delight often commented on by guests.

There's an open plan living area with a cosy wood-burning stove, dining table and kitchen, all with stunning views. The property has one modern bathroom with power shower and bath. The open plan kitchen is designed and finished with modern appliances.

Opening out from the kitchen, glass doors face on to the decked veranda which itself steps down to its own jetty.. This is the perfect place to wine and dine during the day or on a summers evening. The decking has a traditional Finnish hot tub set into it, a wooden table for dining, and an open pit BBQ.
