The Central England/Cotswolds region
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.

"Great family holiday destination"
this house is great for family gatherings. Loads of room and really well equipped. Lots to do on the Estate and it is only a 2 min walk (30 second scoot ...) to the Spa swimming pool.
All in all, a great week, all the more memorable for having 3 beaver sightings!
