“Modern luxury in a beautiful ecological environment.”
Reviewed 6 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I stayed here as part of a group of colleagues. The location is beautiful, plenty of outdoor activities and wonderful local pubs to enjoy. The lakes themselves are idyllic and even though our trip was in October we managed to enjoy the BBQ area and Hot Tub. I would recommend this highly, although if you are in a group noise travels across the lake and we were asked (politely) to keep the noise down so maybe not a place for a huge group party.

“A beautiful haven”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The Lower Mill Estate is a beautiful quiet haven a real place to get away from it all.

Skylark Lodge is a delightful upside down house with the kitchen/living/dining area and one of the three large balconies on the top floor to take advantage of the views over the lake and magnificent sunsets.

The house is well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen with plenty of spares. The furniture is of high quality and is comfortable.

Parking for a large group who had all arrived in separate cars was somewhat limited. Make sure you only park in the designated space for your house or a designated visitor’s space. The overflow car park is near the shop which was some distance away from the house but is not a problem once you have unloaded.

The pools/spa environment is lovely with an indoor and outdoor heated pool. The temperature of the outside pool was just right and not at all chilly for little people.

There are a couple of play areas for children as well as tennis courts so pack your rackets. There is no garden as such at Skylark lodge the only outside space is on one of the three balconies so be prepared to take little ones out for a walk.
