Mere Hide evokes memories of boat houses, dreamy lakeside homes and hides nestled in nature reserves.

The luxurious furnishings and modern comforts are complemented by textures of old: stone building, comfortable arm chair, glazed tiles, timber panelling, log fire stove, hunting trophies and vintage blankets. Its west facing decked terraces extend from the living space and two of the three bedrooms above, they hover tantalisingly over the lake; the shimmering sunset enveloping the view and the mysterious mists announcing dawn .The third room can be transformed into a bedroom for two young guests by unfolding bunkbeds or it can be used as a study or play area.

Central to the estate facilities sits the Artspa, designed to pamper your desires and remove all traces of stress. Swim in one of two heated 20m pools or reinvigorate yourself with a dip in the naturally filtered outdoor eco-pool. Relax in the steam room and sauna and revitalize yourself in the technogym. Luxuriate in the restful treatment rooms and choose from over sixty carefully selected relaxing therapies. (Outdoor pool will be heated from 27March-7Sept and 18Dec-5Jan)

At Mere Hide you are a stone's throw away from the serene unspoilt landscape of the estate, teeming with thriving wildlife; from migrating sand martins to encountering wild orchids, from spotting beavers to discovering owlets. Walk through the woodland and meadows, observe from the carefully located hides and re-engage with a simpler way of life.

“40th birthday celebration......”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2016

What a fabulous weekend in a fabulous location! A group of five of us booked Mere Hide to celebration our 40th birthday year and it was just great. We did take a lot of provisions with us so that we were prepared for a night in on the Friday. There is a small shop on-site but would recommend going prepared. The apartment itself was tidy and well equipped with fantastic views over the lake. There are two double bedrooms and a bedroom with bunk beds. If you are lucky enough to get sun, then the balcony will bask in the sunshine until late into the evening. On the recommendation of Mei Teck, we visited the Wild Duck Inn for dinner on Saturday night and they couldn't have been more helpful especially with the challenges of getting a taxi! A short drive to Cirencester on the Sunday for a nice lunch although booking somewhere would be advised as it was very busy. Thank you to Mei Teck and holiday lettings for making the booking process so easy.

“Superb...”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2012

The owner was incredibly helpful providing lots of useful information before we arrived. The accommodation is in very good condition and we had an excellent stay. There are superb views from the balconies, the house is well equipped and the on site facilities are excellent. The owner also returned our deposit promptly following our stay. In all we would definitely stay again.

“A most relaxing holiday at a quiet lake side location”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

This was my second stay at the Lower Mill Estate. The location of Mere Hide is excellent, being fairly close to tennis courts, children's play area, spa & swimming pool as well as the entrance to fantastic walks around the lakes. The house is very well equipped with a tv/dvd player both downstairs and upstairs in the third bedroom, as well as Wii Sports. There are also i-pod docking stations/alarm clocks throughout the house. Free wi-fi can be accessed for 15 mins per day and for longer at a charge which is useful for checking out local sights. I took bikes for my sons to use which was an excellent move. Most of the time they enjoyed the freedom of cycling around the estate, whether going to the nearby children's play area, making a swimming trip, playing tennis or going to the estate shop. The owners were extremely polite and helpful when it came to answering any queries.

“Fantastic for all ages”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2011

As a family with 4 children of all ages we had a fantastic stay at Mere hide on the Lower Mill Estate.We felt 100% safe letting the children play outside and even our 9 year old rode to the shop every morning for supplies. We stocked up daily on bread, eggs and supplies from the estate shop and had lunch their every day. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The children loved the tree house on the estate and the beaver lake and the men did a bit of fishing which was great. The Spa was an added bonus, it was magnificent including the gym and treatments we had. All in all a perfect holiday for all ages in a lovely house and fabulous surroundings. We will certainly be returning. The Field Family
