  • This is really well set up lakeside holiday home

    This is really well set up lakeside holiday home. It is exactly as described in bookabatch - a lakeside gem This is an older Lockwood with comfortable indoor and outdoor furniture, excellent kitchen facilities, and many surprisingly interesting features. It easily accommodated our extended families and the children had an absolute ball. We would definitely rent this again
