House in Maxey, Peterborough, England - Stunning Views in a Peaceful Location
About Maggie Tebbit
We run a family farm, together with our daughter and son-in-law, about 30 miles away from Lake Lodge. We have also been running Lake Lodge as a holiday let for ten years and often visit our cabin in the grounds where we enjoy meeting some of our guests. I was born in Maxey and several of my family still live there, so I know the area well and can provide plenty of local information. My husband and I enjoy doing much of the maintenance work on the house and grounds and are constantly thinking of new ways to change or improve the property.
Why Maggie Tebbit chose Peterborough
Lake Lodge was my family home, built by my parents in 1965 to retire to. I lived there until I married. We completely renovated it to make it suitable as a holiday let as it is in such a stunning location and ideal for a relaxing holiday or an energetic one with tennis, rowing, kyacking, walking or cycling available. We have many repeat visitors each year who return for the peace and quiet, views and fact that the house is so well equipped.
What makes this House unique
Lake Lodge is a quiet calming oasis with wonderful views over the lake. Whatever the weather guests can either relax in the lounge or out on the patio and enjoy the scenery and wildlife on the lake and in the grounds. For those wanting activity they can step out of the house and straight into the rowing boats and kayaks which can be used all year round, play tennis on the hard tennis court or take advantage of both the footpaths in the grounds or the many local footpaths through quite countryside and along the local river and canal. Round off the day sitting on the patio sipping drinks and watching some spectacular sunsets. The house caters for all ages and is perfect for a multi-generation family get-together as well as groups of friends meeting up.

Great for a family gathering
Wonderful secluded location, with stunning views across the lake. Loads of space, well equipped and well laid out for our family Christmas. We had a wonderful time boating on the lake and watching the heron's antics. First rate!
Fiona and party were great guests and would be welcome back any time. So glad they made use of the facilities and enjoyed winter antics on the lake.
Early Famly Christmas Weekend
We have had a lovely Xmas Weekend at Lake Lodge.
Christmas tree and decorations all up bubbly and chocolates on the table a lovely thought.
The house and all grounds are just great once you have arrived and settled in no need to go out again unless you fancy a short walk to the Bluebell Inn for a small half.
The family played tennis and even went out on the lake in the rowing boat life jackets provided like I said every small thing has been thought of.
We will be back the best recommendation out.
We are pleased Sue and family enjoyed their visit and made full use of all the facilities. We would welcome them back.
Long weekend away with friends
Lovely holiday home, but the real bonus is the outside space, the lake, the woodland and the amazing views. We would love to come back and enjoy this house in the warmer months.
Sandi and her party were great guests and we were pleased they made use of an enjoyed all the amenities. We would welcome them back.
A beautiful house in a wonderfully peaceful setting. Well equipped, we only had to feed ourselves! Boating on the lake was fun as was watching all the wildlife. If you want a secluded holiday home this is it.
We are so glad that Maureen and her family enjoyed their visit and would welcome them back.
