Overlooking Howell's Mere, Sparrowhawk House is an impressive, striking holiday home set in the heart of the Cotswolds Water Park - an eco haven, rich in nature, wildlife and traditional charm and, in our opinion, an absolutely exceptional choice for families.
This lakeside house sleeps 4 in two ensuite bedrooms, each overlooking a private deck and lake beyond whilst upstairs the vast open plan space, a room which is flooded with light thanks to the wall of glass that also looks towards the lake.
This room is very much the focal point of the property with super smart, contemporary furnishings creating a sense of peace while you soak up the views.
We were particularly attracted to the uber-kitchen which is super-smart.
To help you keep healthy and the kids occupied, you've got access to an indoor pool including a gym, sauna and steam room (plus some treatments too!) alternatively you could pop to the bar/restaurant Balihoo which serves all day most of the year which is just 5 mins walk away.
This is a wonderful home, bring your bikes, your boots and swimmers and you'll have a wonderful trip.
