Somerford Keynes, Cirencester, Cotswolds, England
Sparrow Hawk House is an impressive, striking lakeside house, overlooking Howell's Mere set in the heart of the Cotswolds Water Park. The scenic lakes are rich in nature and wildlife, with plenty of opportunity for boating and fishing, while cyclists and runners can take advantage of the fresh clean air away from busy traffic, thanks to a network of private footpaths. This lakeside house sleeps 4 in two ensuite bedrooms, each overlooking a private deck and lake beyond; whilst upstairs the vast open plan space, a room which is flooded with light thanks to the wall of glass that also looks towards the lake. This room is very much the focal point of the property with super smart, contemporary furnishings creating a sense of peace while uou soak up the views. We were particularly attracted to the uber-kitchen which is super-smart. To he... Read more

About the neighbourhood
Set in the heart of The Lower Mill Estate this is a cracking location for a family heading to enjoy one of the most attractive corners of the Cotswolds.

(Please do confuse the name with water slides or fun parks, the Cotswold Water Park is in fact a nature lover's paradise, one of the UK's largest Sites of Special Scientific Interest, with thousands of wildlife species all living in harmony with this very attractive part of Gloucestershire. The entire area has undergone a huge transformation over the last 20 years with the (re)introduction of wildlife to its natural environment right at the heart... more
