Brush with the beach


Meadow to lake





The Cotswolds may be a long way from the coast, but the luxurious Lakeside Villa on the Lakes By Yoo estate has ice-cream hues, shell motifs and polka dots and stripes that have us daydreaming about the seaside. A terrace overhangs peaceful Warren’s Cross lake and there’s space for alfresco meals with charming countryside views. Indoors, there’s ample space for socialising and four white-walled, individually designed bedrooms, one with bunk-beds for family breaks, and a penthouse-level solarium suite with 360-degree views.
