Lower Mill Estate, Cotswold Water Park & surrounding area
Willow Warbler is super cool penthouse apartment situated overlooking the Swillbrook Lake within the exclusive Lower Mill Estate. The property is beautifully furnished with contemporary touches throughout, very well equipped for easy self catering and also enjoys access to the Artspa, Lower Mill's top end Spa with two pools, gym and sauna. Of particular appeal is the roof terrace which is a great spot for a morning coffee or an evening meal/BBQ. As this is one of the few options for groups of four people to stay at Lower Mill, we're delighted to offer this unique holiday property - which is spotlessly presented. A cracker! Also available is local bike hire for adults and kids and canoe, kayak and paddle board hire for adults and kids (subject to water temperature).
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

This property is on Howells Mere and as Howells Mere is the newest development there is still construction very close by. We have not had any complaints; we just feel renters should be aware.
Lower Mill is one of the prime locations within the Cotswolds and specifically the Cotswold Water Park. It is situated approx five miles outside the historic Roman town of Cirencester (sometimes described as the 'capital of the Cotswolds') and very much in the heart of the Cotswold region, making it an excellent base for exploring the wider Cotswold area.
The Lower Mill Estate is a private community of architecturally designed homes, all set within a private 500 acre nature reserve, with two Sites of Special Scientific Interest and a host of wildlife and fauna that make it quite unique in this part of the country. The majority of the houses within the nature reserve are used by their owners as weekend/holiday homes. Many of the owners are families with young children or couples who enjoy the peace, the nature and the tranquillity that this location affords. Added to this are the varied outdoor activities available including walking, sailing, fishing, cycling, tennis and swimming to owner-organised community festivals on the August Bank holiday and New Year holidays.
The few houses that are available for holiday rentals are ideally suited to family gatherings and guests who want to relax in a beautiful home and enjoy the amazing natural outdoor environment and ArtSpa. It is not suited to noisy parties - hen and stag parties are prohibited! As a guest, you are free to enjoy the whole Estate at your leisure. 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). You may want to enjoy a peaceful walk around one of the beautiful lakes, fish, and bird watch from one of the hides or sail on one of the lakes. Artspa offers indoor, outdoor (heated) and eco pools, as well as a state of the art gymnasium and an exceptional selection of spa treatments. A small farm shop is situated in Mill Village, offering all of the essentials.
Free access passes to the on-site ArtSpa, a luxury spa with slate lined 20 metre indoor and outdoor heated pools, outdoor plunge eco pool, steam room, sauna, fully equipped gym and treatment rooms for a range of massages and spa beauty sessions.
Lower Mill also has two tennis courts, two children's play areas, 450 acres of private nature reserve with lakeside walks and cycle routes. Wildlife includes over-wintering wildfowl, otters, owls, bats, deer and the first European beavers to be introduced into England.
"LME is a fantastic venue for a UK holiday with pre-school aged children. There is so much on-site and in the surrounding area to occupy children, but you do not feel the pressure in having to leave the estate everyday as you would with other self-catering holidays. All in all it is a very peaceful place to switch off and fully re-charge. "Bassett-Cross 2017-09-04
