Set out to recapture the founders’ vision of the countryside he knew as a child, The Lakes By YOO prides itself on their family friendly atmosphere. With a particular emphasis on freedom, the 650 acres of private parkland are perfect for children to get muddy in the woods, go camping and catch fish. With countless activities at the Kids Club with play areas and dens nestled in the woods, sailing, canoeing and fishing, there’s never a lack of things to do on the estate.

For the older residents at the lakes, the extensive range of local pursuits offer a constant flow of entertainment from rally driving to clay pigeon shooting, all to be booked and organised through the outstanding concierge service.
