The Central England/Cotswolds region

Region:

April 2008 - Online magazine AskMen.com has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswolds is 2nd Place! The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswolds region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.

Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic. Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford-upon-Avon is just over 1 hour away.

For those looking for a bargain, Bicester Village offers most sought-after brands at prices reduced by up to 60%.

Cirencester

We are within a short walk to Somerford Keynes, a local village with a Quality Pub and a number of other small villages are within 5 minutes drive, offering local amenities like: Post office, Grocery shop and more Pubs.

The estate is located within the Cotswold Waterpark which provides numerous opportunities to explore either on foot, by bike or watercraft, seasonal cable skiing is also on offer as are sailing, canoeing and windsurfing tuition/hire.

The are several golf courses locally.

An artificial beach on one of the lakes within the Keynes Country Park will keep the children entertained as will the local Butts Farm whilst Magicland in Cirencester is available for very young children if the weather is poor.

Horse riding and bicycle hire is also available locally.

Regular polo matches are played in & around Cirencester.

Cirencester is the nearest town and is only 10 minutes drive, where you will find large Tesco, Waitrose, M&S and a good variety of shops/boutiques, pubs and restaurants.

The town of Cirencester (formerly named Corinium was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times) is home to the Corinium Museum, the Cirencester Abbey (the longest known Saxon church in England) and host to regular market days.

"Perfect for a family break"

We had a great break at 46 Howells Mere in the Lower Mill Estate. The estate is so well set up for families with the pool, play area and trampoline as well as safe empty roads for walking, scootering and trying to get babies to nap in their buggies!
The house was ideal for 2 families as we had a floor each for sleeping. The rooms were on the small side but were modern and clean, and we only slept in them, and there was a bathroom per bedroom which was handy.
The living space was great, well equipped kitchen, room to relax and a lovely view over a small pond / smaller lake - the kids loved a visit from a friendly swan. And the decking area was lovely for relaxing in the sunshine.
Highly recommend it!

"Modern house, good value, wonderful location!"

What a relaxing weekend was had by all! Staying in a lovely house with all the mod cons, in a lakeside location in the Cotswolds, should have been fantastic in itself. However, add in the use of an amazing spa and you have yourself an ideal short break!
We were recommended some fantastic restaurants in Cirencester by the staff at Cotswolds Spa Holidays and nothing was too much trouble for them.

"Smart venue for special family gathering"

The Estate is very impressive with very modern, high-spec houses around a series of lakes. It's well laid out with an inviting spa (especially the warm-water outside swimming pool which we all enjoyed). However, rather difficult to navigate around at night due to the lack of road markings and lights. It took me some time to find the exit when going to collect our children from the railway station one night.Visitor parking is a good 10-15 minutes walk from the house.

The house itself (part of a terrace) is stylish, quite spacious and clean (though no hooks in bathrooms or hallway). Well equipped kitchen. Good size tables inside and out on the patio. Nice views of swans emerging from the lake opposite in the early morning mist. A problem with mobile phone reception - I could only connect when standing in the upstairs back bedroom.
We had a very enjoyable week here. There are so many excellent walks in the area. And John, the concierge, was very helpful and accessible. Whilst the Estate was busy at the weekend was busy, mid-week in September was very quiet and peaceful.

"Great location in the Cotswolds"

We had a lovely stay at 46 Howells Mere - the house is light, airy and spacious and very clean and quiet.

Located in the Lower Mill Estate, it's an ideal place to escape to the Cotswolds and overlooks the lake so feels very tranquil

The on-site spa is brilliant, making it a great destination for a girly holiday

"Beautiful location,Relaxing, value for money."

L.Mill is a peaceful idyllic estate surrounded by nature
46 Howelsmere is a modern property on three levels,the agent very clearly states there is slight building work in distance,but from my experience you wouldnt know they were there. The house had a high standard of cleanliness and the spa is a great place to unwind,would definatly recommend and return.
