Weekend Escapes

The Lakes by Yoo

Looking for a lakeside stay in an idyllic location? Lakes by Yoo has it all…

Imagine an unspoilt landscape of six clear lakes in more than 650 acres. Then add in the plushest of  21st century home design, a stunning spa for you and endless acres for children to live the Swallows and Amazons dream. Sold yet? We exaggerate not, The Lakes by Yoo is next-level amazing.

First up, the accommodation itself. Set on a private estate (some owned by celebs!) the holiday homes are either lakeside or woodland stays, depending on which you prefer, but all offer a quiet vibe in a modern and elegant setting. The huge open spaces in the lodges are the perfect for a family, and some come complete with their very own private outdoor pool on the terrace. There are plenty of lodge options available, depending on whether you want to bring the whole family or just have a relaxing break away a deux.

If you do decide to bring the kids (or have no choice!) then there is a holiday club they can attend, that arrange lots of fun activities to keep them entertained. Meanwhile the adults can do as much (or as little) as they want. Go sailing on the lake, have a go on the zip wire, try out a fitness or yoga class or just chill out with a glass of fizz at the relaxing spa. The indulgent Orchard Spa features an incredible indoor outdoor heated pool (17 metres long) and a range of world-class beauty treatments on offer.

The fabulous team at Lakes by Yoo have really thought of everything – they even offer a concierge service complete with bringing your supermarket deliveries and unpacking these – real VIP service,

And if you love it here much here (you will) you can even buy your own holiday home here! Please just invite Muddy.
