Wild outside, chic inside

Welcome to a Hamptons-like world in which top chefs make your meals, a butler waits on your table and log fires warm the evenings. Huntsman Lakehouse is part of The Lakes by Yoo, where the exteriors are as wild and wooded as the interiors are chic and sophisticated.

A world of sanity and serenity

From the deck around the top-floor master suite of Huntsman Lakehouse, there’s a 360-degree perspective on another world. It’s one of sanity and serenity, of lakes and woodland, and 650 acres of silent Cotswold beauty. It’s yours to explore at The Lakes by Yoo, where designer-chic interiors meet waterside and woodland exteriors.

Right on the lake, Huntsman Lakehouse gives you uninterrupted views. Fish from the deck, swim, or just laze on the top terrace with a glass full of fine wine and a head full of dreams.

Designed by Yoo Studio, the three-storey Lakehouse pops with style. Relax amid a bold, contemporary colour palette, with gorgeous warm greys accented with zingy yellow. After a day at the shared spa and gym, flick on the Nespresso, chill on the squishy sofa and summon up a movie from Sky.

Kids can escape to the School of Rock or Ben Fogle’s School of Wild. Replenish their energy with a terrace barbecue, and then let them discover the board games and playroom wigwam while you sip a sundowner on the deck. Discover the true meaning of sleep, in a water and woodland idyll, and then do it all again tomorrow.

Living spaces

These are the spaces that bring family and friends together. There are sofas to sprawl on, Blu-ray movies to relax to, and shaggy rugs and fine furnishings to make you feel at home. In summer, the doors glide back to reveal the waterside decks. In winter, load up the log burner, break out the cards and enjoy the company.

This is the five-star hotel with guests chosen by you. From the unique design DNA of the Yoo Studio, overseen by Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, Jade Jagger and Kelly Hoppen, Huntsman Lakehouse comes with fabulous design pieces set against a chic, contemporary colour palette of warm greys and zingy yellows.

Gardens and grounds

The outdoors slips in and the indoors slips out. Life at Huntsman Lakehouse flows effortlessly from interior chic to waterside and woodlands. There are 650 acres of outdoor living and six lakes to enjoy at The Lakes by Yoo, an eco reserve where the serenity is interrupted only by the trout that break the surface of the water.

View it all from the 16 metres of decking. Dangle a line into the water for trout or crayfish and have it on your plate by teatime. Sail from the sandy beach and simply glide across the crystal waters. Spot the otters and bank-side deer. Or explore the woodland on foot or bike.

Cooking and dining

Huntsman Lakehouse is a designer dream. It’s out of this world, but you’ll still feel at home here. That could be down to little luxuries, like sorting out your food delivery service and stocking the kitchen with fine fresh ingredients. You can cook for yourself in the state-of-the-art kitchen, or call us.

With 48 hours’ notice, the finest chefs in the Cotswolds will bring to your table their experience from top boutique hotels and multi-award-winning delis. So will it be game casserole with juniper and thyme, or chicken, leek and ham hock pie, or maybe authentic Japanese?

At Huntsman Lakehouse, sleeping eight to ten, you’ll learn the true meaning of sleep. Only the ripples of the fish or the amphibious activities of the otters on the adjacent lake water disturb your dreams.

Grab one of the two master suites for a masterful sleep in super king beds. Before you drift off, the log burners and sprawling sofas will get you dreamy, and the widescreen TVs add another touch of hotel chic.

Bedroom three sleeps two in a king bed and the fourth bedroom is the perfect kidzone, with a bunk and two adult twins. All rooms come laden with designer chic and homely touches, while full-length windows put you right on the water.

Lemurs, lions, racing and retail

Well, kids, will it be the Cotswold Wildlife Park for lemurs and lions, Birdland for parrots and pelicans, or a hawk walk around Cheltenham? Grown-up kids will enjoy pottering for England around tearooms, antique shops and bookshops, or Cheltenham for racing and retail.
