Cornerstone Cottage is a cosy, yet spacious, family-owned contemporary cottage on the private Lower Mill Estate nature reserve in the Cotswolds Water Park.

Tranquil location in secluded water garden away from the busiest parts of Lower Mill Estate, and yet only a short walk from the exclusive spa (included for all our rental guests) & other facilities. Miles of beautiful walks from the front door and a big selection of local sporting, sightseeing and relaxing activities. A favourite is the 15 minute walk to our local pub, The Bakers Arms.

We have owned Cornerstone Cottage since 2003, specifying the house to be our own rural ‘home away from home’. Now we are delighted to invite you to share the experience and make your own memories.

Many guests have come back again & again, often booking long in advance.

Large sofas to relax...
