The property possesses one of the premium spots on the development, situated right on the waterside.

The main entertaining space is open-plan and comprises of a modern fitted kitchen, dining area and living room, floor to ceiling glass patio doors help to let in sunlight and allow guests to enjoy the wonderful lake views. Upstairs, on the first floor are the four bedrooms. There will certainly be some arguments over the impressive master suite which boasts panoramic views from its fabulous private balcony as well as a luxurious en-suite bathroom. Also, on this level is the second king-size room, again boasting an en-suite shower room, two twin bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

A staircase from the first floor leads up to the marvellous roof terrace, complete with dining facilities and barbecue, this makes the perfect place to dine al fresco while enjoying fantastic views over the entire gated development, lake and nature reserve. 

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • While the development is completely safe, it is centred around a lake and so we recommend that little ones are not left to explore alone
  • While there is a sofabed in the living room which may be useful for a guest who struggles with mobility, the total capacity must not exceed eight guests

This home is a part of our Great Value Collection!
