About this location
The Cotswolds region
The central England / Cotswolds / Gloucestershire Region
Lower Mill Estate is situated in Cotswolds Water Park, 5 miles south of Cirencester and 8 miles north of Swindon. It provides an excellent location for exploring the Cotswolds - the Roman towns of Cirencester and Bath are within easy reach as are many beautiful Cotswold villages.
We find it makes an excellent base for meeting up with friends and family from different parts of the country - north, south, east and west!
The nearest town Cirencester is an historic and elegant town, with a Roman Museum to discover as well as a range of shops, cafes and restaurants. It has a Waitrose and Tesco and all the major Supermarkets will deliver your grocery order direct to your door.
Cirencester / Somerford Keynes / Cotswold Water Park
The Lower Mill Estate is a 550 acre private estate and nature reserve. There are numerous walks or cycle rides to enjoy, bird hides to enjoy the multitude of birds or why not try to spot the beavers or otters that live wild on the estate. If fishing is for you, fishing permits are provided with the property.
For a bit more action, there are a multitude of other activities available within a few miles - from windsurfing to waterskiing, aerial adventures to golf you are bound to find something new to have a go at. The Cotswolds Country Park and Beach is just a short bike ride from Lower Mill - here you can have a sailing or windsurfing lesson, play on the sandy beach or hire boats or bikes.
There are plenty of other attractions to occupy little ones - Butts Farm is just 10 minutes drive away and has goats to milk and pigs to feed. And why not visit their award winning Farm Shop before returning home.

We're so glad you had such a good time at Daisy Chain. Thank you for alerting us to the issue with the top bunk. Having bought the bunk bed with its mattresses we had assumed they met regulations! We have changed the mattress on the top bunk so that there is now more than the recommended 10cm between the top of the mattress and the top of the guard rail. Hope to welcome you back to Daisy Chain one day.

Its not easy to find a house that can take all the family but Daisy Chain was perfect for the 9 of us. It is a stunning, modern house, the furniture and facilities are new, high quality and all work well. There are more than enough seats, plates glasses etc. The back of the house is almost entirely glass and looks east over the lake. It was great to lie in bed and watch the sunrise over the water. As a holiday village the area feels a little unreal but it works very well. It was quiet (apart from us), there are pleasant easy walks around the lakes, there is a little shop (not cheap) and some of the group even used the pool and gym.
It takes no time to get to Cirencester with all the shops you need. We had a great weekend and the owners could not have been more helpful.
