Happy Christmas

    “Christmas comes but once a year and when it comes, it brings good cheer” Hopefully this is just how your Christmas is shaping up – it does always seem to be a bit hot, a bit too busy and a bit too hectic but when the day arrives, we hope it proves to be all you have planned and prepared for.  However, the best part is just getting together with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, having a relaxed fun and cheerful time. This year, we are very much looking forward to having all of our children and grandchildren plus their dogs!! here to celebrate Christmas together at Cloudlake. As 2014 comes to a close, we would like to thank everyone who came to stay with us – it has been a lovely year at Cloudlake – some came for the first time – some came for the umpteenth time, some became engaged here and some were married here – our very best wishes to you all.  We just love meeting you all and hope to see you at Cloudlake again in 2015. We hope your Christmas is as calm and beautiful as these lilies on the lake!! – A Happy and Merry Christmas from Rosemary, Richard, Dudley, Tehya, the ducks, the guinea fowl, the chookies and the sheep xxxxx  ...

Come floating on a brand new Cloud 9

For some time now we have been working on our new website, as the old one from 2004, whilst much loved, just wasn’t working on smart phones or tablets – sorry.  Drum Roll – well here it is!!! We just love it and hope you will too – it has given us a chance to show how we have grown since Cloudlake began in 2002, but for the many of you who have shared our journey and have stayed with us so many times, you will recognize lots of  the new images. We always love to see you and of course enthusiastically welcome new ‘Cloudlakers’. To celebrate the launch (and because he is in a creative groove at the moment, well always really) Richard has just finished a new ‘Dugong’ Sunlounger for the Boathouse – all ready for those lazy Summer...
