The Central England/Cotswolds region
Lower Mill Estate is in the Cotswold Water Park at the Southern edge of the Cotswolds, easily accessible by road it offers a great base for exploring all the Cotswolds towns as well as Bath, Oxford and Cirencester, all within a 40 mile radius.
The source of the Thames is 4 miles away in Kemble. The Thames Path has many lovely walks along its 180 mile journey to the sea.
The Cotswolds are steeped in history from the Roman times and there are some beautiful historic houses and estates to explore: such as Chedworth Roman Villa, Dyrham Park, Sudeley Castle.The Cotswolds area is a popular area for its picturesque towns and rolling fields with beautiful towns such as Cheltenham and Cirencester, and many stunning villages such as Bibury, Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford and Moreton-in-the-Marsh.
Cheltenham became a popular spa in the 18th century, and its Regency architecture remains very well preserved, and it also offers an abundance of boutique shopping and restaurants.
Tewkesbury is home to the beautiful Abbey, one of the most popular spots in the Midlands for visitors. Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest point on the Cotswolds and Gloucester has a magnificent cathedral.
Lower Mill is located five miles south of the historic Roman town of Cirencester, making it an excellent base for exploring the wider Cotswold area. There are many beautiful villages within a short drive.
Much of the 500 acre estate is given over to natural habitat and there are several sites of special scientific interest. Lower Mill takes its name from the historic water mill found at the entrance, one of only two still working on the river Thames, which flows through the area.
Lower Mill is within the Cotswolds Water Park holiday area with lots of water based activities from a man made beach to waterskiing, angling and sailing.
There are many picturesque local pubs and restaurants within a short drive and The Bakers Arms in Somerford Keynes (serving food all week) is within walking distance. An organic shop is also located by the water mill for daily essentials. As well as a wide variety of birdlife on the eight lakes found at Lower Mill, other residents include barn owls, deer, otters and the only "wild" beaver population in the UK.
There are over 100 lakes in the area, some are kept as nature reserves but many are used for fishing, kayaking, sailing, waterskiing and windsurfing. Golf, bicycle hire and horse-riding are also just a few minutes drive from the house.
The Bell at Sapperton - www.foodatthebell.co.uk - Reviewed by The Observer in late June 2006 as one of the Best 10 Pubs in the UK for our Garden and Al Fresco Dining in their Mediterranean Courtyard .
Potting Shed Pub in Malmesbury and restaurant at The Rectory in Crudwell are worth a visit.
If the weather is poor there is a large indoor play centre at Magicland in Cirencester and Swindon has bowling and a multi screen cinema as well as a large shopping centre. MacArthur Glen Outlets can also be found near junction 16 of the M4.
For animal lovers there is Butts Farm and the Cotswold Wildlife Park. The Swan, great pub is 7 mins away.

"Excellent - exceeded expectations!"
This property was excellent. We visited as a group of friends and this holiday offered the perfect relaxing holiday.
The middle floor with kitchen, living room and dining room was fantastic - its well decorated and homely too. Although this is a terrace cottage, we could not hear our neighbours, and the bushes in the lake add privacy to outside seating.
The bedroom s were adequate, but fitted our needs and would better suit a family. The two ensuites and family bathroom were great for group size too.
The spa is also literally 2mins round the corner and the staff there are lovely.
Don't be deterred by lack of reviews, this is a great find!
