Stayed here for a weekend in mid-May. The cottage is lovely and big enough for six adults, with nicely decorated rooms, linens and towels. The well stocked kitchen allowed us to cook a few meals, which we shared around the kitchen table. Location is perfect,...More

About the neighbourhood
Located within a Site of Special Scientific Interest nature reserve, the cottage sits within 450 acres of abundant wildlife and unspoilt countryside. Set within the private Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswold's Water Park, visitors have access to the activities and facilities on the estate.

Decades of glorious neglect from industry, followed by another decade of sensitive development, have created a huge unpolluted nature reserve with flourishing flora and fauna.

With professionally tended woodland, lakes and meadows all within the estate’s expansive boundaries, the vast array of resident and visiting wildlife includes beavers, otters, muntjac deer, kingfisher, grebes, badgers, herons, barn and tawny owls, egrets, teals and sand martins.
