Stately lakeside luxury


Down by the water





Stays at Lechlade Lodge, on the Lakes by Yoo Cotswolds estate, are a hazy midsummer dream of dining on a sun-kissed deck with glittering views, kayaking across the water and exploring the green surrounds of this classic country break destination. The barn-wood-clad villa has been primped and preened into a breathtakingly elegant home by the Yoo studio (a stable for star designer Philippe Starck and his like). A neutral palette and window walls ensure it’s light and bright, and opulent touches – dabs of velvet; a button-back seat here, a chandelier or two there – make these cabins more regal than rugged.

First Glance

  • Neutrals, lots of light, tactile fabrics: this timber-clad modern villa is one of the estate’s most elegant.
  • To create an open, sociable space, the lounge, dining room and kitchen co-exist in a bright open-plan space. All share sweeping lake views from floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • The living room has a comfy wraparound sofa, large flatscreen TV and wood-burning fire. Doors open out to the deck.
  • The dining area, lit by two chandeliers, has a long table with seating for up to eight guests.
  • The modern kitchen has mirrored splashbacks and cream units. There’s a fridge-freezer, oven and hob, crockery, glassware, cutlery and cookware, and an island that doubles as a breakfast bar. Doors open out to the deck, and there are lake views from floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • A peaceful study nook leads off from the living area, with a workspace and views of the surrounding greenery.
  • A bathroom on the ground floor has a walk-in shower.
  • The utility space on the ground floor has a washer and dryer, and cleaning supplies.
