Lower Mill Estate, Cotswold Water Park & surrounding area
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 500 acres of private, nature-rich countryside, this attractive and uber-contemporary holiday home offers exceptional self catering accommodation that is ideal for familes 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.
Please note: the facilities in the Artspa are being updated during 2017. Please contact us to check if this may have a bearing on your stay at the Estate

The Lower Mill Estate is a 450 acre private nature reserve, located in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park. Not to be confused with water slides or fun park, the Water Park is in fact a nature lover's paradise, including two Sites of Special Scientific Interest, with thousands of wildlife species all living in harmony with this very attractive part of Gloucestershire.

Many people comment that Lower Mill often feels like a time warp back to days when children can run about freely and safely (with the resepct of water of course).
