The Lakes Concept
The Lakes is a private estate set amongst 650 acres of idyllic Cotswold countryside just 90 minutes from London, that enables owners to experience the very best of the British seasons.
A joint venture between award winning developer The Raven Group and design experts yoo, who formed a partnership to fulfil this unique and celebrated project, The Lakes is an gated community where nature and design work in harmony to provide the ultimate rural retreat and lifestyle.
By collaborating with ecologists and local conservationists, our architects and designers have complemented the estate’s natural assets and landscape, thereby ensuring a masterplan that is environmentally sound, breathtakingly beautiful and perfectly functional.
The Lakes by yoo is a playground for all ages to enjoy and discover.
Founder of yoo and resident at The Lakes
“Our vision for The Lakes by yoo was to recapture the countryside I knew as a child. I want my children to chase butterflies, get muddy in the woods, go camping and catch fish, and I want them to have that freedom in a safe, natural environment. At The Lakes by yoo, you’re living in an endless landscape, with a river and lakes, meadows and woods that are all your own back garden – that’s the joy of it.”

“The Lakes by yoo is all about freedom. With 650 acres of private parkland for children to play in, make friends and call their own. The basic philosophy; if the kids are happy then so are the parents.”
