New onto the rental market, Thistledown 25, is based within an award winning, gated community of sustainable homes, set in a private, fully managed nature reserve in the heart of the Cotswolds. Thistledown is a 4 bedroom, 3 storey detached, South East facing house, offering 3 doubles and 1 twin bedded room. With an almost entirely glass frontage, its light and airy design has views across Howells Mere Lake. Lower Mill Estate is a private community of architect designed homes set within a private 550 acre nature reserve with two sites of special scientific interest and a £6m ArtSpa.

The house comes with free access to the luxury spa; a superbly designed, tranquil sanctuary. There's a bracing outdoor eco-pool, naturally filtered by water lilies and two more 20m heated Swimming Pools, a Steam Room, a Sauna, a Technogym equipped Gymnasium and a restful reading lounge. There are peaceful treatment rooms where you can sample gentle therapies all using natural Pevonia Botanica ingredients.

Lower Mill Estate sits in the heart of the Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a rural idyll less than two hours from the bustle of London. Our private Lakeside vacation home is secure, secluded and in the middle of a nature reserve, but within easy reach of all the Cotswolds has to offer, including Michelin-starred restaurants, fascinating craft and antique fares, farmers' markets, country pubs and organic delicatessens.

Somerford Keynes


With thirteen settlements of varying sizes across the Cotswold Water Park, it is no surprise that there are plenty of interesting places to visit and explore. For example, the town of Fairford boasts the only complete set of medieval stained glass in a parish church anywhere in the country; Cricklade where the great Roman road, Ermin Street crosses the River Thames; Down Ampney, the birthplace of Ralph Vaughan Williams; Ashton Keynes, with more bridges over the infant river Thames than London.
