    "Superb cottage. Please let guests know of changes to gate codes. Especially gate three."
    Pamela ‐ 20 Oct 2019
    "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and we found Clearwater Cottage to be a comfortable, spacious and well-equipped base."
    Fiona ‐ 21 Sep 2019
    "A great place and location.Wi-fi intermittent but not a problem when there was so much to do in the area."
    Brenda ‐ 19 Sep 2019
    "Second visit to this property and it was just as nice as we remembered it. The only small criticism would be the size of the kitchen which is small compared to the rest of the house; however is it extremely well equipped as was the rest of the house. The bedrooms are all well sized and having a shower room on the ground floor was a luxury. The outlook from the property is wonderful - peaceful and relaxing. I would thoroughly recommend this house."

    "What a fab cottage, wonderful position overlooking the lake. There was a lovely welcome basket when we got there, it was all so clean and very well equipped, there were 3 boats we could use, also a lovely pool and sauna just a short walk away, would definitely book it again, thank you."

    "We had a great time despite the weather! The cottage was the best equipped cottage we’ve ever stayed in! The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The open kayak was great fun, but we couldn’t get the hang of the white water kayaks as they kept spinning! No bother as we hired a single open kayak on site for a few days which the kids loved. Such a beautiful spot to unwind. The double bed was a little small for my husband (he’s 6’1”) so I shared with the kids which was fine. The foot of one of the singles was abutted to the wall and my daughter at 5’8” struggled to fit in this one but used a bed without a footboard/wall. Overall we had a great holiday and would definitely book again!"

    "Absolutely stunning location. The cottage was very well presented and equipped with more than we could ask for, dishwasher, washing machine, ensuite and family bathroom, board games, Dvds, life jackets etc and had the added bonus of having 2 kayaks and a canoe for private use on the Lagoon the cottage overlooks with jetty right outside. The views were gorgeous. Couldn't have wished for better accommodation for our week long summer holiday. The shared pool was lovely, quieter swim times first thing and evenings and I advise booking tennis court sessions quickly as they book up days in advance. The only small downside with the estate ( not the cottage) was the shop/general store which was miniscule and the service in the Ballyhoo restaurant/cafe on site, which was very slow for drinks and cake and the staff member ( manager) wasn't particularly welcoming. Wish we had taken own bikes as the estate is so vast we only managed to explore half of it alongside all the other activities and days out, we borrowed bikes one day from go-by-cycle, a 10 min walk away which hire by the hour."

    "Very attractive well equipped cottage. Lovely to be able to go out on the canoe and use the kayaks at any time. The swimming pool and tennis court were great for the teenagers."
    Christine ‐ 18 Apr 2019
    "A lovely, very well equipped cottage with beautiful views. Due to the weather we didn’t use the kayaks unfortunately and wished we had access to the spa. But overall we had a lovely stay as there’s plenty of other things to do. We loved the great collection of DVDs and log burner, which meant we actually relaxed on this holiday. One tip I wished we’d known about is not to open the bedroom windows overlooking the water as we were plagued by insects which gave us itchy legs at night!"

    "Wonderful weekend break in a home from home cottage equipped with everything, and more, than you could want. Would highly recommend."
