News - A day at The Lakes by YOO
This year, as always, we made our annual pilgrimage to YOO's beautiful residential project in the Cotswolds for a day of relaxation - a chance for the whole YOO team to get together and unwind in a magical rural setting. The Lakes by YOO recently played host to John Hitchcox’s well-documented wedding to Phoebe Vela, but sadly for us there was no impromptu “Pink Span Duran” wedding band to serenade us this time. This, however, detracted nothing from the perfect weather, fabulous food and wine, and flawless service offered by the on-site team.
After sipping rose on the deck at the YOO Studio-designed Solarium property, we headed out for a spot of fun messing about in row boats on the lake, a bit of fishing and even a chance to whizz along above the water on a zipwire.
Meanwhile lunch was laid out for us inside - a fabulous spread created by the Lakes caterers, including the most delicious clementine cake and chocolate puds.
...And of course, no visit to the Lakes is complete without a refreshing cycle through the grounds with their sun-dappled glades, and a stop in at the spa for a dip in the pool or the hot tub.
As always, an idyllic day spent in this unique, peaceful and beautiful setting. We can’t wait for next year’s visit. It really is the highlight of our summer!
