Cirencester, Cotswold Water Park & surrounding area
Reflections is the perfect large party gathering! Located on Howells Mere and with stunning, far reaching views this is another high quality property in one of the most prestigeous locations on the Cotswold Lakes. Inside the owners have created an amazing, contemporary holiday home, which has clearly been developed with self catering holidays in mind. On the first two floors are the good sized bedrooms most with terrace areas and views towards the water, leading to the top floor - an open plan living space with 360 degree views across the lakes and surrounding countryside. Finally is the skydeck itself - the very top floor with exceptional and uninterrupted views for miles. Wow! Additionally, the property, of course, is situated within a stroll of the multi million pound Artspa facility - with its indoor and outdoor heated pools, which really complete the package. This is an excellent self catering holiday home with extra perks.
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.

We absolutely love the location and its focus on preserving the rural habitats and rural experience for guests travelling to this area - creating a unique holiday and memories. We find the area especially ideal for families given the way the area is organsied and managed. Be it the area being only open to those staying at Lower Mill, or whether it is the attractive surroundings or (of course!) the access to the amazing swimming pools - this is a destination in itself perfect for all age families but also ideal of groups of friends who fancy a trip into 'deepest, darkest Cotswolds'!! It really is exceptional.
The Lower Mill area is bustling with wildlife with over 3000 different species of wildlife across the area, they take conservation and nature very seriously. This means you will see all manner of differnt birds, butterflies, insects and so on - so please don't be scared (!!!) - it's here for good reason. Of course this does mean that you will probably see a wide variety of our eight -legged friends, but please be aware that the housekeepers do everything they can to keep the properties clear of spiders inside, but they can be determined!
There is a large spa with indoor and outdoor pools, the opportunity to have a massage or other beauty treatments all exclusive to certain properties during your stay. There is a tennis court, ample places to kick a ball and also a shop and restaurant, both open at selected times of the day and week during the course of the year. Everything you need is within walking distance.
Beyond the lakes, you have a wealth of places to visit, including Cirencester with its wide choice of shops and places to eat. Of course there are many villages also to pop and visit, some of the finest in the Cotswolds - but it all depends on whether you can be 'bothered' to leave the Estate. Once you come, we think you'll see why so many people come and stay again and again. Heavenly!!
