May Half Term Waterside Breaks

There’s still time to bag a prime location for May Half Term – a lakeside cottage or lochside glamping pod from watersidebreaks.com which specialises, exclusively, in holiday homes on or close to Britain’s lakes, lochs, rivers and coasts.

For example, literally ON the Norfolk Broads is The River Lodge, a floating holiday home at Horning on the River Bure. The two-bedroom log cabin-style house sleeps four in comfort, has its own boat mooring (with boat hire available nearby), expansive water frontage and is currently available at just £595 for seven nights starting 26 May.

Within the Cotswold Water Park region, one of the New England style lodges on Spring Lake is available for four nights starting Bank Holiday Monday 28 May at £1120. This outstanding timber-clad house sleeps six in three bedrooms, and overlooks Spring Lake where watersports – including waterskiing – are offered. The open-plan living space is light and bright thanks to floor to ceiling glass doors opening onto the furnished sundeck that literally overhangs the lake.

And in Scotland, a cluster of eco-friendly geodomes overlook Loch Tay for a fabulous countryside experience, with three nights starting Monday 28 May just £225 for two adults, with additional children charged at £10 per child per night.  Each dome offers a double bed, with children accommodated on camping mattresses: a real glamping adventure! The private estate offers 140 acres of ‘great outdoors’ running down to the north shore of the loch. Onsite facilities include shower and wc facilities, a bar and restaurant, as well as a host of outdoor activities on and beside the water.

Fantastic value at Waterside Cottages in Devon and Cornwall

Devon and Cornwall: it’s all about the beaches, isn’t it? No! says Waterside Breaks, the specialists in waterside holiday homes across the UK.

“There are some magical West Country locations just a few miles from the coasts, where beautiful holiday homes overlook lakes or rivers and offer outstanding value,” says Tim Wells, managing director.

For example:

Stonerush Lakes is a 28 acre estate about six miles inland from both Fowey and Looe. This quiet Cornish valley has three fishing lakes and a small river winding through it, with a collection of stylish and family-friendly lodges well-placed across the landscaped estate.

Each lodge is furnished in contemporary style, typically all on one level, with open-plan living areas opening onto spacious decks; many have a private hot tub.  For example, a Water’s Edge Lodge offers a double and a twin to sleep a family of four, with fabulous open-plan living space and a large lakeside deck. A peak August week is £1559, with pets welcome at a supplement of £25 each.

In Devon, on the edge of Dartmoor National Parks is Indio Lakes. There are about a dozen individual properties set in woodland around two lakes which offer a rural retreat yet are within walking distance of the market town of Bovey Tracey.

For example, Great Combe Lodge has floor to ceiling glazing to the open-plan living area for uninterrupted lake views, a large over-water deck and a private hot tub. Two bedrooms sleep a family of four in style and a week in August costs up to £1495.

And at Lanivet in Cornwall, the A frame lodges at Lakeview offer comfortable Scandinavian style holiday homes on a wonderful 220 acre site near Bodmin. Superb facilities onsite include a heated outdoor pool, gym, two well-stocked coarse fishing lakes, tennis courts, segways and cable wake-boarding. There’s even a waterside Bistro. A week in a two –bedroom lodge sleeping four costs up to £1059 in August.

Fish from your front door: Waterside Holiday Cottages

Britain loves fishing! More than 1.3 million rod licences are taken out each year (source: DEFRA), which is no surprise to Waterside Breaks, who say holiday cottages beside fishing lakes are among their most popular properties.

For example, within the Cotswold Water Park region, the 12 Scandinavian-style Lake Pochard Lodges offer not only match-quality fishing within yards of the holiday homes, but a host of other activities around the park for non-angling family members, from hiking, cycling and water-sports to a man-made beach and floating assault course.

Lake Pochard Lodge anglers can choose from the Specimen Carp Lake, which is for the exclusive use of guests at £10 per person per 24-hour period. A 73-peg Match Lake is also available from 7am to dusk at £5 per person. Carp, tench, bream, roach and rudd are the main stock, with catches of 100lbs+ in a day common. A Tackle Shop within the Waterside Cafe offers both bait and tackle.

The lodges themselves have a cosy feel thanks to the timber, contrasting with contemporary furnishings, smart kitchens and bathrooms. Two and three-bedroom lodges are available and all are wheelchair friendly (as are many fishing pegs).  A three-night weekend this spring starts at £485 for up to four people.

In a sleepy corner of south Devon, five luxurious holiday lodges are set around three spring-fed lakes at South View.  Despite its quiet setting the city of Exeter is three and a half miles away, and both Dartmoor and the coast are within easy reach.

South View lodges low res

South View sits in a wooded valley of six acres, and is a haven for wildlife and anglers alike: Heron Lake is ideal for children and disabled anglers, having flat banks; the one-acre Kingfisher Lake is named for its most colourful resident; the long-established Willow Lake includes an island. Day tickets are £10 per person.

There is no compromise when it comes to the accommodation, with each lodge offering bags of space and stylish contemporary living, plus a private hot tub on the furnished deck. Recognising that there’s more to breaks at South View than fish, the owners also offer chocolate and champagne ‘hampers’, welcome packs, local produce deliveries and home-baked cakes – all at extra charge. One and two-bedroom lodges are available, with prices from £651 for a three-night weekend this spring.

And newly-listed on WatersideBreaks.com is Rural Roosts set half-way between the Lincolnshire Wolds and the cathedral city of Lincoln. Eight pine lodges are built around the lake which is fished only by guests, at no extra charge.

Each lodge is about 20 metres from the water and as well as four-star standards, each lodge also has its own shed for storing guests’ fishing kit, bikes etc. Some also boast a private hot tub on the deck. Three-night weekends start at £471 this spring.

Spring Breaks with Bounce! Waterside Cottages with Activities ‘on tap’.

After this long cold winter, the Spring equinox (tomorrow, 20 March) is more welcome than usual, and Waterside Breaks is highlighting holiday homes with easy access to outdoor activities from water-sports to axe-throwing!

Waterside Breaks is THE one-stop-shop for finding gorgeous cottages, lodges and glamping pods set beside Britain’s most beautiful lakes, lochs and rivers.

“Many of our holiday homes are ideal for active breaks,” says managing director Tim Wells. “Fishing of course; canoeing and other water-sports, hiking, cycling – on and off-road – and even axe-throwing at one location!”

In Perthshire, on the Loch Tay estate guests can not only choose from half a dozen different styles of accommodation, but from a superb range of outdoor activities in a breathtaking Highland setting. The freshwater loch offers fly and coarse fishing plus several options for canoe and boat hire. On land, there’s archery, mountain bikes and quads to rent, and guests can try their hand at canyoning, rafting, hiking, climbing and even deer-stalking in the locality. All activities are at extra charge, for example from £60 for a half-day’s boat hire.

Accommodation ranges from octagonal woodland cabins and ark-like glamping pods, through different sizes of Scandinavian lodge to space-age geodomes.  Many properties boast a private hot tub. The estate’s Boathouse bar and restaurant offers a break from self-catering and all this is magnificently set in 140 private acres rising from the shore of the loch towards the Ben Lawers mountain range, and is less than two hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

PRICES: a three-night weekend this Spring costs from £225 for a simple but stylish two-person geodome. A weekend in a ‘wigwam’ pod with its own shower/wc, kitchen corner, wood-fired hot tub and fire pit starts at £320. A typical three-bedroom lodge sleeping six with south-facing deck for amazing views over the loch costs from £485 for three nights.

Other options include:

Wall Eden Farm in Somerset offers eight lodges on the banks of the River Brue. Activities on-site include axe-throwing (three types of axe can be used under supervision!), rifle or air pistol shooting and archery. There’s cycle and canoe hire, plus fishing in pond or river. Prices for a three-night weekend in a lodge sleeping up to six start at just £349. Activities are extra, for example from £15 per person for axe-throwing.

And:
The forty square miles of the Cotswold Water Park region offer a host of activities, from water-sports on some of the 150 lakes to cycling and hiking. From Easter, an inflatable assault course off-shore from the man-made beach is in operation! The Cotswold Water Park region offers the widest choice of holiday homes, ranging from fisherman’s log cabins to high-end contemporary lodges.
