Lakes By Yoo Cabins + Apartments Launching Summer 2022

Luxury country estate, The Lakes by Yoo, is pleased to announce that this summer a collection of new waterfront cabins and apartments will be available to guests. The first of their kind on the estate, the new luxury cabins and apartments have been carefully designed by YOO Studio, founded by international real estate entrepreneur John Hitchcox and the world’s most famous designer, Philippe Starck. With nine two-bedroom chalets and 18 three-bedroom apartments, the new accommodation offer is perfectly suited to couples, families and groups of friends.

The new cabins and apartments will be available for shorter bookings, with guests able to opt for two-night stays, making this an ideal luxury weekend break from London. With sustainable touches throughout, including the use of natural and local materials, such as Cotswold stone and locally woven willow, the aesthetic of these new spaces blends seamlessly with its rural surroundings. Design highlights include a double-height open-plan living area with a cozy wood-burning stove, a split-level deck overlooking Lake Marley, and a four-poster bed with lake views.

Set amongst 850 acres of lakes, meadows and woodlands, The Lakes offers guests an authentic wilderness oasis with facilities and activities ranging from fishing and boating to tennis and ziplining. A dedicated concierge service is able to organize bespoke experiences and events upon request. Guests can book a mixologist and cocktail tasting in their cabin or have a private chef cook their favorite meal while they sit alfresco on their deck. The estate’s restaurant, Elsa’s, will reopen for the summer season offering an outdoor teepee setting and a series of summer pop-ups. Launching in April is an exclusive Easter pop-up with Fuego Dining Co, specializing in outdoor dining and sociable cooking.

Guests can enjoy a selection of new, varied and innovative treatments and therapies available at the spa. Recently renovated, the spa combines state-of-the-art technology with time-tested traditional therapies and advanced bio-hacking techniques. The spa will strive to restore physical, mental and emotional balance and strength. Guests can also benefit from on-site personal training and take advantage of the 17-meter indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and fitness room.

Sustainable living is central to the estate’s philosophy, with conservation and ecology at its core. On the estate, more than 500,000 trees have been planted, a farm created, bees cultivated and millions invested to create an eco-friendly environment. There are also a variety of fundraising initiatives and programs that support the local community.

With acclaimed design partners such as Kate Moss, Philippe Starck, Kelly Hoppen and Jade Jagger, The Lakes by Yoo is a haven for families, friends and colleagues to come together and rest, relax and recharge in a Truly idyllic setting which is only 90 minutes away from London.
