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.

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.
Fantastic family getaway
Clean, everything you could need with welcoming friendly owners. Thank you for a wonderful weekend
Fantastic. Undoubtedly the best accommodation we have ever stayed in.
We stayed with our nearest and dearest (9 in total) for a long weekend as part of our Golden Wedding celebrations. We could not fault the facilities and, being blessed with amazing weather, we took full advantage of the boating, spending many hours on the lake. Our grandson also swam and enjoyed playing tennis with his cousins. Excellent! All are keen to return
Lovely house in an amazing setting.
We had a fabulous week at lake lodge. The house was spacious and immaculately clean. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and had everything we needed. Maggie and Dan (the owners) were staying in their cabin in the grounds and were super friendly and helpful. Our 3 children and niece and nephew loved boating on the lake and they enjoyed playing tennis on the tennis court too. The setting of the house on the lake was so relaxing and the children were never bored and had plenty to do. We’ve been on a UK holiday in May since our first child was born 8 years ago and have stayed in many different holiday homes all over the Uk and this has to be the best - we’ll definitely be back.
Wonderful setting for birthday celebration weekend
The house and grounds were wonderful. Super comfortable and well equipped house. We all enjoyed boating on the lake, tennis on the court and walks to the village and along the river bank. Secluded but not in the least remote. A very memorable and happy stay, many thanks to Maggie.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and made the most of all the facilities we offer. We hope you will come back and visit us again one day.
Idyillic place to get away from it all
We stayed here as our twice per year weekends away with 3 other couples in early November. Would have loved to stay longer than the 3 nights! Everything was perfect and Lake Lodge is a great place to relax and enjoy some wonderful walks and scenery. Wildlife including herons abound and location is so tranquil. How great to create this from a family owned gravel extraction business and leave no trace of the location's previous history. Superb village pub (no food but great beer) the Blue Bell visited twice - be there by 5.30pm on Friday nights if you want a seat - and further afield we visited the Golden Pheasant at Etton on our 9 mile walk and the Blue Bell at Glinton on Saturday night. Brilliant place to chill - all 8 of us thought were sad it was only a weekend chillout. well done Maggie and co.
Glad to see that our guests not only made the most of Lake Lodge but also the local surroundings. We hope to see them return one day.
