Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
The Lakes by Yoo. A wonderful opportunity for you to design and create your home in 650 acres of idyllic Cotswold countryside. Living at The Lakes combines the great outdoors with the best of contemporary design.

The Barnhouse offers complete privacy in a lush woodland setting. The land price is £950,000 with a quoted build price* of £1,250,000.

Built from green oak and natural Cotswold stone, the house takes its inspiration from traditional agricultural style buildings and architecture, but there is a distinct modern twist.

There is nothing merely functional here. Every contemporary comfort is catered for and there is a beautiful outdoor pool from which to escape the heat of the day.

An early morning swim. An afternoon in the Spa. An evening barbeque. The days pass at your own pace at The Lakes, giving you the chance to create an unforgettable collection of family memories.


Teeming with trout, pike, perch, carp, tench, roach and bream,Huntsman Lake has everything you need for a relaxing day's fishing. At the Fishing Hut, you can arrange lessons or hire tackle, rods and other equipment. Then simply head over to the Saturday Hook & Cook Barbeque to share your stories and smoke your catch.


Whether you're indulging a lifelong passion for racing lasers or simply trying something new, this is the perfect place for your family to sail. You'll join Bowmoor Sailing Club, a child- friendly club and RYA Teaching Centre with one of the largest youth fleets in the country. Whatever time of year you take to the water, you can be sure of a warm welcome.


A serene, woodland setting adds another dimension to the award-winning Orchard Spa. With treatments by Daylesford and Oskia, a 20 metre indoor pool, gym, steam room and sauna, it rivals any in the Capital. Little surprise, then, that it consistently ranks as one of our most popular destinations.


There are countless ways to take to the water at the Lakes By Yoo. Choose canoeing and you'll see the wildlife and unique Cotswold reed beds up close. A leisurely paddle will take you past swans, tufted ducks, water voles, heron and all the other aquatic animals and birds that make the estate so special.


There's little to rival the excitement of launching yourself into the abyss suspended on a single steel wire. Unless it's watching your child do exactly the same thing for the first time seconds later. Take the family zip wiring and you'll experience both sensations, as you and the kids soar in perfect safety.


Our Kids' Club will get your child excited by everything nature has to offer. This could mean water sports or safaris on the Lakes, camping or putting on a play in our outdoor theatre. But it might be something simpler: feeding the estate's chickens in their run, exploring the herb gardens, taking a turn at bee keeping or building a den in the woods.

*Quoted build prices includes, fees, plot preparation and landscaping cost. Prices are independently certified as competitve.
