About Kasha Grimes

6 years’ experience as a holiday letting agent in the Cotswolds

Independent business, working closely with private lodge owners

Choice of circa 14 carefully selected high quality holiday lodges

Kasha Grimes, Managing Director of Cotswolds Spa Holidays, has approximately 6 years’ experience of working in the Cotswold Water Park. Kasha has a close relationship with numerous lodge owners. This relationship is vital to the business as it ensures that she retains a family-like, yet professional, manner right to the core of the business and deeply cares for the value our product.

All the properties are third party owned second homes, namely, that they are owned by private individuals generally for the benefit of their immediate family but are also let out through us to defray the costs of running & maintaining the properties and therefore are often furnished in an individual & personal way with no two properties fitted out the same. Guests return year on year & can enjoy a different experience each time & select a property that best fits the requirements of the guests they plan to bring along, old or young. Due to the eclectic mix of owners each property has its own lively charm and feels like an actual home, rather than a prescribed holiday environment put together by a corporate design team. We aim to offer stunning holiday homes to add to any occasion.

After leaving recruitment, Kasha began her own agency business in 2011 setting up Cotswolds Spa Holidays with a portfolio of just 3 rental properties offering a boutique high end service for discerning guests.

Surrounded by picturesque Cotswold villages, historic market towns and an area of lakes larger than the Norfolk broads, the stunning, natural landscape is tough competition for our fabulous lakeside holiday homes & a catchment of some 20 million potential guests within 2 hours by car. The area is renowned for its wildlife and the range of activities available. Similarly, for t

We are within a short walk to Somerford Keynes, a local village with a pub and a number of other small villages are within 5 minutes drive, offering local amenities like: Post office, Grocery shop and more Pubs.

The estate is located within the Cotswold Water park which provides numerous opportunities to explore either on foot, by bike or water craft, seasonal cable skiing is also on offer as are sailing, canoeing and windsurfing tuition/hire.

The are several golf courses locally.

An artificial beach on one of the lakes within the Keynes Country Park will keep the children entertained as will the local Butts Farm whilst Magic land in Cirencester is available for very young children if the weather is poor.

Horse riding and bicycle hire is also available locally.

Regular polo matches are played in & around Cirencester.

Cirencester is the nearest town and is only 10 minutes drive, where you will find large Tesco, Waitrose, M&S and a good variety of shops/boutiques, pubs and restaurants.

The town of Cirencester (formerly named Corinium was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times) is home to the Corinium Museum, the Cirencester Abbey (the longest known Saxon church in England) and host to regular market days.

Other popular Cotswold towns are within a 40 mile radius (Tewkesbury, Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Swindon, Bath, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon)


April 2008 - On-line magazine has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswold's is 2nd Place!

The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswold's region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.

Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic

Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswold's), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency

architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford-upon-Avon is just over 1 hour away.

For those looking for a bargain, Bicester Village offers most sought-after brands at prices reduced by up to 60%
