"Excellent luxury lodge"

Review of Lower Mill Estate

My husband, 2 yr old daughter and I had the great pleasure of staying at Osprey Lodge for 4 nights in February 2014.

There are few places I've found which offer true luxury and live up to the expectations set by the brochure, but this was one of those rare gems.

The entire estate is the epitome of tranquility and calm. A truly exclusive location where the everyday grind of daily life seemed a thousand miles away from the minute we drove through the private gates.

On arrival we weren't too sure of where we were going on the estate as it was late at night and very dark, but we called the contact we'd been given and he was great, talking us right to the lodge (turns out we were right around the corner!). There was allocated parking around 100 metres from the front door of the lodge, which was reached across a little footbridge over a stream.

The lodge itself was beautifully presented and furnished. A fully equipped beautifully appointed kitchen (complete with granite work tops and a very clever double oven, the top part of which also became a microwave) opened into an open plan dining area and in turn into the main living area. Attention to detail and beautiful minimal decor, along with little touches such as the DAB radio left playing tuned to Classic fm upon our arrival made it instantly feel like home.

In the lounge there was a flat screen TV, a DVD player and a Wii (as well as the aforementioned DAB radio).

Upstairs, there were 4 bedrooms and a travel cot for our use (they had also provided high chairs too which was great). There were 2 doubles and 2 twin rooms, 2 of which had ensuites and there was also a further shared bathroom.

I have to mention the master bedroom which was simply stunning. The only place we've ever stayed which rivalled this room was the bridal suite at our wedding hotel. It had a huge modern 4 poster bed, double height ceiling to the sloping roof (which made it feel enormous), ensuite, built in wardrobe, several drawer/cabinet units and (my favourite) panoramic views across the lake with patio doors which opened to a private sheltered balcony with sofa. It was a real little sanctuary. The bed itself was also very comfortable with good quality bedding.

The real icing on the cake though was the hot tub. Nestled on the fully decked patio, it was prepped and ready for our arrival and we spent many a relaxing afternoon sat looking out over the lake. The decking ran all around the back and side of the house which sat directly next to the lake. Although it was a bit cold for us in February, we could just imagine spending summer evenings sitting outside with a glass of wine. Ahhhhhh.

The grounds of the estate are beautiful to walk in and full of rabbits, ducks and swans. We found a few lovely local pubs when we could be bothered to leave the absolutely peace and quiet of the lodge! There are beautiful Cotswold villages within short drives and Bath was only 45 minutes away.

The on site spa was also incredible. Again, from past experiences we had half expected the brochure to be exaggerating it's 'luxury' description, however it was just wonderful. As it was mid week in February we were the only people using the pool (there were a few people in the gym) and it was like a little sanctuary. Minimal and elegant. The changing rooms were well equipped with lovely showers and were very clean.

We could see that although it wasn't open (as it was very cold!) the outdoor pool and surrounding lounger area would be beautiful in the summer.

In summary, Osprey Lodge surpassed all of our expectations. If anything, the descriptions in the brochure underplay how wonderful this place is, both the house itself and it's surroundings. We are already planning our next visit and feel truly lucky to have found our little haven.

"Lovely property and site."

We enjoyed the site and the lovely property. Hot tub was great for the kids too. Lovely setting would have been nice to have had longer to enjoy the water sports with nicer weather. Would definitely visit again had a great time with our two children (8 and 6) and our in-laws. Thanks to Jamie and the team.

"Relaxing family weekend away in luxury pad with hot tub"

Just back from a very relaxing weekend at Osprey Lodge Lower Mill Estate. The house is amazing, it sits on a lovely plot overlooking the lake. It is huge, with great space downstairs and 4 big bedrooms upstairs and numerous luxury bathrooms. The two big double rooms have great views and balconies overlooking the lake.
The outside space is perfect for families with young children as all the doors lead on to decking which is surrounded by a glass barrier. The outdoors is topped off by the awesome hot tub which we used throughout our break.
The facilities on the estate are amazing with a great spa with large indoor and outdoor pools., which we perfect for the rainy days. There are a couple of playgrounds on site with trampolines and tennis courts. There is also a handy shop where we got our morning papers and supplies. The grounds and lakes in the estate are great for walking, scooting and cycling round. There is a great pub which is just 15minutes walk away in the local village.
Would definitely love to go back but just hope for better weather next time so we can enjoy the outside space more.

This is the second time we have been to the lower mill estate, its wonderful. Osprey Lodge was great, it had bags of room and was luxurious inside - just what we wanted. The hot tub was a real treat, especially for the kids. the pool is one of the nicest you will find, and all walks around the lakes are lovely. the estate is always so well kept.

"Peaceful, and a great space to spend precious time with family."

It was a very clean and well looked after house. We had a warm welcome too. The views over the lake were lovely, and it was a great base for local walks.

We had a great relaxing weekend made even better with the use of a Hot Tub!! Jamie was extremely welcoming and very professional and friendly, we would reccommend you to anyone and will definately be re-visiting as soon as possible!! Thank you once again....

"Ticked all the boxes!!!"

From booking to our arrival we experienced an excellent service.
Full marks!!
The lodge itself has great spacious rooms and has amazing panoramic views across the lake and with the added bonus of the outdoor jacuzzi, we felt thoroughly spoilt!
The spa facilities which are a 5 minute walk, are excellent and took full use of the pool and steam room.
Do book this property early, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks Tim!
