With beautiful balconies and a private hot tub on your own decking overlooking the lake, Osprey Lodge was previously one of the Estate’s show homes.
Your approach is over a small waterway across a private footbridge. This large 4 x bed home is on the banks of the mature Clearwater Lake, with stunning views from ground floor living, terraces and from both balconies on the first floor.

GROUND FLOOR: Across the bridge are a couple of outdoor lounging chairs on the front terrace – perfect for that morning coffee. The external porch - with coat hooks and umbrella stand - allows children to shake off coats and wellies before entering the property and down the long inviting hallway towards the centre of the house. With a stunning newly refurbished kitchen, the property opens and invites guests to sit back and relax in the huge - and continuingly flowing - hosting space: from kitchen to dining area to living space and beyond. The angled floor to ceiling glazing running the entire length of one side of the property, allows the home to be filled with natural light and provides breath-taking views from every setting on the ground floor. The new kitchen is perfectly appointed, and with all the mod cons you’ve come to expect, is very well equipped – including a brand-new wine cooler! It’s clever and well thought out layout encourages hosting - food lovers and chefs will adore entertaining between here and the dining space for 8-9 guests. The lounge is flanked by the continuing floor to ceiling glazing and is perfectly positioned to offer both fantastic views of the lake, and for the cosy evenings in front of the fire. The maturity of Clearwater Lake gives you both a sense of privacy, whilst affording beautiful views of the water. The lake’s flora and colours change season on season, so your view changes throughout the year. With two large sofas, armchairs and beanbags, the lounge is finished with a Scandinavian style gas effect wood burner and large curved Smart TV. The ground floor also has a large WC which has been recently updated.
Osprey Lodge is pet friendly and has a larger ground floor decking space than most properties. The terraces can be reached using the many glazed doors from the ground floor – creating an extension of the entertainment space and offering an alfresco dining space for guests. A separate outdoor sofa area and the luxury of a recently updated brand new hot tub. A huge hit among all guests, with views right across the lake and nature reserve. NB: This whole outside area is secured with balustrades and a private gate, allowing access to the banks of the lake below from which you can launch your water sports equipment, such as canoes and kayaks (available to hire on site).
FIRST FLOOR: All four of the property’s bedrooms are on the first floor off the large landing space. To the right is the huge master suite complete with a super-king bed and newly renovated ensuite shower room. With a double height ceiling creating a sense of grandeur, the room is filled with an abundance of natural light due to the sensitively positioned glazing that offers both stunning views of the lake and nature reserve beyond, but also providing a lot of privacy. The bedroom has a double wardrobe and drawer space, and a large, covered balcony area set lakeside. The master suite’s large balcony provides the most spectacular setting to relax with both a two-seater bistro table and chairs, and a cosy swinging egg chair, which is just the best place to curl up with a book and a glass of something chilled.
A second double bedroom with king size bed and wardrobe also has its own private balcony space with a two-seater bistro table – ideal for a spot of breakfast or afternoon tea. The bed faces the large floor to ceiling double glazed doors, affording beautiful views of Clearwater Lake. A family shower room next door serves both this bedroom and the first of two twin bedrooms. This family shower room has just been refurbished and updated as with all of the bathrooms and ensuites in Osprey Lodge.
The first twin has two full size single beds with wardrobes and drawer space. The final and 4th bedroom is a further twin room with two full size single beds and with a double wardrobe and further drawer space. The room also has a new ensuite with bathtub and handheld shower attachment.
PETS: Osprey Lodge is a dog friendly house and welcomes guests with up to 2 small/medium sized dogs by prior arrangement.
N.B. the 'single Z bed’ in bedroom 1 can be utilized and squeezed in bedroom 3 and bedroom 4 also. This option, however, is not suitable for an adult; we would recommend using this as a single bed for a child or teenager only.
