    “We have stayed at lower mill estate many times and used manor cottages who I cannot fault, but puffin house is a little tired and needs a little TLC, the balcony was really dirty, the bench outside was really bad and unable to be sat on, the WiFi was down which the owner did know but only informed the estate on the Friday, my brother in law relies on this for his business while away and so lost work during our stay, the property wasn’t as clean as all the others we stayed in.”

The property

Puffin House is a striking and stylish lakeside home that sits, literally, overlooking the water!

A large, detached house that is located down a little path, within this exclusive eco holiday estate, we absolutely love this property and believe you will too.

Surrounded by lakes and 450 acres of private, nature-rich countryside, this attractive and uber-contemporary holiday home offers exceptional self catering accommodation that is ideal for families and groups.

Inside there is vast glass wall that lets the light flood in and gives great views the "reverse living" style means you really get to enjoy the outside all day long and then the stars in the evening.

The owners have provided modern fixtures, mixed with traditional touches like a wood burning stove and oak flooring to create a unique appeal - one we loved.

There are external terraces and balconies on the ground and first floor too.

Situated lakeside and within an unspoilt countryside, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to walks or bike rides there is an abundance of wildlife, nature or alternatively if you fancy being a little more adventurous how about sailing or fishing.

Not only all of this, but you can use the swanky pool and spa as often as you like and these are just 5 mins walk away!

This home is a joy, for families, for children, for friends and a chance to sample one of the Cotswolds most attractive locations.
