On a private estate in the heart of the Cotswolds, this grand, glass-fronted home sits right on the water at Lake Bowmoor. The wooden deck, furnished with luxury loungers, sofas and a dining table for the whole group, juts out over the calm lake and from here, you can spot ducks, swans and divers as you dine. To the side of the house, you’ve got your own eight-person motorboat for a cruise across the lake, and kayaks and paddleboards too. There’s a covered hot tub should you wish to unwind after. Glass doors to blend indoors with outdoors so you can pick one of the lavish circular sofas inside and still enjoy the sights and sounds of the lake with the doors pulled back. The kitchen is a haven of modernity, with a sub-zero wine fridge to keep whites crisp and cool and chiller cabinets for the barbecue salads. Gather the group at the banquet-sized dining table with its quirky egg chairs for a huge family meal and open up the doors to the lake view. There are plenty of mod cons to keep the group entertained, like the flatscreen TV, but also a collection of books and board games to make the most of the tranquillity of your location. Should you need to work remotely there are desks in the bedrooms and a dedicated office space with floor-to-ceiling windows. On the estate, you’ve got plenty of activities to choose from, like wild swimming, a heated indoor pool, bicycle hire, spa days and a Go Ape adventure course. But if you want to get out and explore the area, Cirencester is a twenty-minute drive away and the idyllic Cotswolds village of Bibury fifteen minutes by car.
