"lovely weeken spent with Family over a sunny July weekend"
We have been to Lower Mill on a few occasions and stayed in various different properties.
This was just as nice as any we have stayed in, lovely house - great location & views over the lake.
Booking was very easy; the owners are great to deal with.

The home was immaculately clean, nicely furnished, with lovely views of the lake. We loved the Spa pools and great walks. We'd come back but maybe another time of year as the balcony didn't catch much sun in June.

"If you come across this property on the internet.....just book it!"
We have 2 young children and we all thoroughly enjoyed the 'Lower Mill Estate' experience, not least because we stayed during the first week of proper sunshine that we'd seen all year. … More

"Beautiful House and Spa with shared pool but density of housing means that it's not really back to nature!"
We stayed for three nights at Lambstail and the house and facilities at Lower Mill are of a very high quality and well maintained.
The Spa does a great balance between offering very adult escape while sill being family friendly with regard to the pool area. We swam in both the inside and the very warm outside pool even though the outside air temperature was in single digits! The landscaping and architecture of the spa are of a high standard.
The beautiful floor to ceiling glass walls facing the lake and the log burner were highlights.
Furnishings and kitchen equipment were great.
The downside was that the house was freezing when we arrived and took half a day to warm up, particularly in the downstairs bedrooms. There were no fire making materials provided on arrival which we were disappointed in, though the Lower Mill shop did sell all the necessary equipment.
The kids liked the bunk bed arrangement - double bed on the lower level and single bunk above.
The other disappointment was that the canoe on the lower balcony was not available for guests use.
The only other warning is that although Lower Mill markets itself on being 'back to nature' the density of housing does mean that the houses are all over looking each other and it feels like living in a housing estate with water instead of back gardens.
In summary we had a nice break and the kids loved swimming twice a day and looking out over the water from their beds!

"Very relaxing stay in a lovely house in a great location"
We had a lovely week at the Lower Mill Estate. I would recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a bit of R&R in peaceful surroundings. The house is very well kitted out and Mark and Jennie were very accommodating and helpful. The on-site facilities were excellent.
