Location description from owner

The Cotswolds region

April 2008 - Online magazine AskMen.com has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswolds is 2nd Place!

The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswolds region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.

Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic

Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford-upon-Avon is just over 1 hour away.

For those looking for a bargain, Bicester Village offers most sought-after brands at prices reduced by up to 60%

Lower Mill

We are within a short walk to Somerford Keynes, a local village with a Quality Pub and a number of other small villages are within 5 minutes drive, offering local amenities like: Post office, Grocery shop and more Pubs.

The estate is located within the Cotswold Waterpark which provides numerous opportunities to explore either on foot, by bike or watercraft, seasonal cable skiing is also on offer as are sailing, canoeing and windsurfing tuition/hire.

The are several golf courses locally.

An artificial beach on one of the lakes within the Keynes Country Park will keep the children entertained as will the local Butts Farm whilst Magicland in Cirencester is available for very young children if the weather is poor.

Horse riding and bicycle hire is also available locally.

Regular polo matches are played in & around Cirencester.

Cirencester is the nearest town and is only 10 minutes drive, where you will find large Tesco, Waitrose, M&S and a good variety of shops/boutiques, pubs and restaurants.

The town of Cirencester (formerly named Corinium was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times) is home to the Corinium Museum, the Cirencester Abbey (the longest known Saxon church in England) and host to regular market days.

Other popular Cotswold towns are within a 40 mile radius (Tewkesbury, Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Swindon, Bath, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon)

“Family Get-Together”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

Booked this break for a family get-together. 6 adults. We all had a great time. House was a delight-very clean, spacious and had all the comforts of home. The resort itself was great. Pool was a joy, spa was grand. Hired bikes to explore a beautiful and welcoming area. Pubs and restaurants provided great service and terrific food. We all look forward to our next visit.

“Brilliant Easter Weekend!”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2013

The booking, follow up information and customer service was exemplary! I would certainly recommend this holiday. I had planned an Easter Break away with a large number of my family and the Cotswolds Spa Holidays accomodation was just perfect. A lovely modern and high spec 3 storey house with a great view of a lake that housed Swans and ducks. My children loved it! They also loved the indoor and outdoor heated pool at the Spa!. The location was perfect as well and we took the opportunity of visiting some beautiful villages. We are already planning a return trip in the summer!!

“wonderfully relaxing weekend”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2011

48 Howells Mere is wonderfully located in a gated community far away from the stresses and strains of every day life. I went with 15 friends for a joint birthday party, and we had a relaxing long weekend. You have free access to the spa and the facilities there and the house overlooks a small lake so if you want to relax with your friends in the lovely outdoor area -with a bbq, although if you want to use it you will have to pay to get it cleaned. The house is beautifully clean and the master bedroom is wonderful. As are the other bedroom in the property. The pub is nearby - just a 15 minute walk away or if you want to hire a bike, it's about 5 minutes away. There's lots to do in the area also if you want to go for longer than a weekend.
