About the Lodge

Little Horseshoe Lake is inside its own private eco-reserve. This strictly adults only stay is a one bedroomed cottage set inside 55-acres. The property is inside the Cotswold Water Park in South Cerney. You will have your own private entrance and there is guest access. Interestingly they don’t have curtains or blinds, so they do ask that you bring your eye mask. Similarly, no kids allowed – it’s about safety with that lake all around. The lake has no swimming, but you can canoe in the lake next door.

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned.
