I totally mirror what the guy said in September 21. Nothing has changed since that review. The place and its location is idyllic. However the place is extremely tired and scruffy and needs to be reviewed either on price or people are told what to expect and can therefore make a decision. I was shocked when I arrived because it looked like no one had occupied the place it was so overgrown and scruffy. We cleaned everything because cobwebs were everywhere. It is a shame because it can be ideal. I hope the owners don?t take personally but do something about it. We did have clean linen and towels. The hot tub is situated in long bushes and puts you off because it looks dirty. I have been in it and it was nice and hot but not sure its clean.

The grand children loved visiting.

Like I said the place is idyllic shame to say what I did.

Set in the most beautiful location next to a peaceful, carp-filled lake. Kingfishers, ducks, geese, swans and pheasants. From early morning until evening, you are free and undisturbed by the outside world. I cannot fault the privacy and beauty of this place. The facilities provided are good - Kamado barbecue and accessories, heated shelter, reclining chairs. Everything you need.

However, the accommodation is tired. The pictures here (I see that the last review was two years ago) are misleading. The wood is split and deformed and poorly maintained/painted. The inside of the yurt on arrival was covered in cobwebs which really should have been removed. The hot tub was also dirty. The cover and tiling were covered in mildew and it smelled very, very sweaty. I'm not 100% convinced that the water had been changed since the last occupants. There was a huge pile of swirling black grit in the bottom as well. We ended up not using it much.

The fire grate in the bottom of the barbecue was shattered, as was the grill. The grill also hadn't been cleaned and the previous occupants ash hadn't been removed. We planned a barbecue not knowing this and had to spend 30 minutes cleaning and preparing it first.

The supplied rowing boat was also in a vile condition and we had to buy cleaning supplies to make it serviceable. The oars were different sizes and the oarlocks were far too large for said oars.

Overall, this place has the potential to be wonderful but it's just not quite there anymore. It's tired and neglected. With a deep clean and a repaint, some carpentry and it could be wonderful again. I recommend walks to the Yew Tree pub, the Gardener's Arms and hiring a self-skippered boat from Severn Expeditions.

Well where do I start. As soon as we saw the place we fell in love with it. Even staying in October the weather was so nice. The Jacuzzi was so nice even at 23.00 at night. Was the most romantic place I have ever been in. We even named the ducks that came for food every morning. This place was the most amazing place ever and can't wait to go there again.

Visited the Lakeside Yurt 15th June 2018 for 3 nights...... what a lovely little hideaway!..... so peaceful and relaxing.

The owner who greeted us, was really friendly and showed us to the Yurt and explained how everything worked.

The Yurt was spotlessly clean and the owners had thought to provide everything.... even robes!!!

The bed was really comfortable. If you don't like brilliant daylight in the early morning from the skylight, bring a pair of eye covers.

Our dog Holly had a lovely time and enjoyed watching the ducks swimming up to the veranda.... not so pleased however when one of two came up ON the veranda.

The undercover area on the veranda was fab and kept you shielded from the wind.... it even had an overhead heater which was really warm.

We really didn't feel ready to leave... I came home and looked on line to see when we could do our next break.....only to sadly discover the place is full until October.

My better half booked the yurt for my birthday, wow what a fantastic and peaceful place. The yurt is kitted our with a hot water boiler, two ring gas hob, combi microwave oven, roll top bath with shower mixer, a gas fire and a rather comfy double bed.

Set right by a lake with decking area and sheltered seating with heating! Lovely to just sit and watch the sun set. The little boat supplied is a must to explore the lake.

If you want something warmer, there is a hot tub which you can just relax away all your troubles. Then sit by the fire pit set in the woods.

Good base location to explore Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and just a 10 min walk from Beckford which has a post office shop. There is a Morrison?s on the way to Evesham for a bigger shop.

All in all a fantastic place if you just want to get away from it all for a week. We will see you again in August for our mini moon!

The location is a winner if you are looking for peace and relaxation. The yurt has everything you need and is warm and cosy. I must admit to being disappointed however by the overall appearance, particularly the outside areas, the place needs a deep clean and some TLC. It could be so much more with a little attention to detail. I would imagine when the yurts were first installed it was near perfect, unfortunately the place has been left too long without a good clean and spruce up.

I honestly can say this is the most peaceful and tranquil place I have ever had the pleasure in staying. The past reviews say the same and they aren't lying it really was heaven on earth and we didn't want to come home. The setting is simply stunning looking out to the lake every day and the geese, ducklings and swans we fed every day were beautiful.

The yurt itself was lovely and cosy and we looked out to the stars very night and the hot tub was used morning noon and night, the yurt is completely private and the owners very lovely but left you completely al

We had a great relaxing time, great hot tub butiful country side, and a great pub down the road you can wet your whistle in. What more do you want than that.

We simply fell in love with this place. The owners have thought of everything to make this a lovely romantic getaway for their guests. We love the outdoors but this is the first time we have stayed in a yurt and cannot wait to return!

The yurt itself is gorgeously decked out and very cosy. Loved the roll top bath and although there was under floor heating we had no need for it, since if it got chilly the gas log burner warmed up the yurt in no time. Perhaps if we had visited in the winter months we might have used the under floor heating. We spend a lot
