Very Good

“Excellent base for special birthday weekend”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2017

This was the perfect place for our wider family to stay together to celebrate mum's 70th birthday. Even with 4 children and six adults, the house was spacious with everyone able to have fun and relax. The house felt luxurious and special to stay in and the children loved the swings and football table. had the weather been better, no doubt the trampoline would have been well used too. The beds were all super comfortable and the showers heavenly. The wider location was excellent too, fantastic walks and quiet surroundings, along with the other site facilities. We would definitely visit again for a special occasion.

“Stunning house in fantastic location”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2015

I booked this for a group of uni friends. We meet up every year around the country, usually un the Peaks or Lakes. This year, we decided to try the Cotswolds and I stumbled upon this fantastic house in Cotswolds Water Park. The location is fantastic, in easy reach of London and accessible by car or train. It was also easy enough for friends from the North West to get to. The house is warm, bright and airy, really well equipped with high quality furnishings, towels and bedding. It was great for a large group, with plenty of space to relax without being on top of each other and also space for people to take a time out if they wanted. The location of the house is on a large private estate, with each property facing out onto a lake. I imagine it would be buzzing with water sports enthusiasts in the summer months, but was pretty quiet while we were there. There is a restaurant/café and small convenience store on the estate and you're within a 30 min walk of the nearest pub (we were pretty wet by the time we got there). I'd definitely recommend this as a great place to stay for a group of 8-10 adults (two of the rooms have twin beds) any time of the year, but I would love to go back in the Summer!

“Fantastic location with extremly high standard of accomodation”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2014

The location is outstanding on a lake. Views beautiful. Kids enjoyed canoeing, swimming and play areas while we enjoyed great coffee at the cafe. House very contemporary with well laid out kitchen, bathroom and and lounge/dining area. Would defiantly go back to this place again

“An excellant property , very well provided with all one could want, and of a high standard”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2014

4 mature couples rented for the xmas period, and found the property to be comfortable, and very well equiped, quiet yet with all one could wish for . We all had a great time, and i would imagine in the summer it is really lovely.

“Excellent, top quality accommodation of the highest standard in a very peaceful setting.”

My friends and I stayed at this property the weekend of November 29th 2013. There were 9 of us and the propery was very spacious for us all with plenty of bedrooms, seating areas and everything we needed for an enjoyable weekend. The house was spotlessly clean and equipped as you would your own home. To top it all the Spa situated on Lower Mill Estate is excellent and very accommodating. All in all a great weekend was had by all and looking forward to our return trip.

“excellent accommodation, beautiful surroundings, 5 star!”

I would definitely recommend Bittern lodge the house and facilities are fantastic. There was everything you need for a luxury weekend everything provided in the house was of a high standard the kitchen appliances, the TV, the beautiful furnishings, open fire. They have finished the house to a very high standard. We didn't realise just how much is provided in the house from an ipod doc, DVD's, tea, coffee, hairdryers, towels. We went with friends but after staying here would love to come back with the children as it is so convenient. The spa was a short walking distance from the house and the facilities were very good welcoming single adults and families. The settings of the house are very beautiful and serene and all in all we found it to be an extremely relaxing weekend and everybody was sad to leave. We will definitely be returning here and hope you enjoy as much as we did!

An immaculate house set up perfectly for a large group with three bedrooms downstairs sharing two large bathrooms and one on the top floor with en-suite. The house has a huge kitchen/dining/living area with a cinema room also. The bedrooms had comfy beds, crisp white linen and lovely decoration. The kitchen was large, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The estate itself is peaceful and friendly - a perfect place for getting away from it all. The organisation of the booking and picking up the key was fantastic and the owner even dropped by to make sure we were happy and offer a few tips for local dining and walks. Would definitely stay again - a really fantastic weekend away and great value for money.

“Excellent value for money!”

Myself and 8 friends have just returned from a 4 day 3 night stay at this property. From the beginning of the booking process I found Kasha to be extremely helpful, and the booking process was quick and easy. Don’t be put off by the Code of Conduct from the property as these are clearly put in place to keep things in order as this is mainly a family orientated estate. Once arriving at the property we used the supplied directions which took us straight to the door, then John arrived to greet us and check us in – very easygoing and trusting. The house is immaculate exactly as sown in the pictures if not better. Very spacious and slept 9 of us perfectly. We decided to cook 2 of the 3 nights we stayed using the local Tesco’s for supplies. It was great with the full fitted and supplied kitchen with all equipment you could possibly need. When staying at the property you also get to use the amazing Art Spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna and steam room. You are welcome to use these facilities everyday of your stay free of charge. We were lucky enough not to have to check out until the evening as there were no new guest arriving in the house, however even if you have to check out at 10am they welcome you in the spa until it closes – excellent touch. The only things we would suggest for the future are; maybe supplying a BBQ for the downstairs decking, this would be a great touch. Supplying Fans; because the property is all glass it can get a little hot at times especially in the top bedroom, supplying fans would keep people inside after 10pm during the hot weather. An information book; similar to the info provided by email but in hard copy with a brief overview of the area, things to do, taxi contact numbers, local takeaway numbers, local food delivery, directions to Tesco’s etc. Al in all we were all very happy with our break in this house we all had a great time and were left in the house completely hassle free. We look forward to returning next year. Kasha and John, thanks again. All the best, Ed

“Amazing Cotswolds Break”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

Superb property finished to an exceptionally high standard. Excellent facilities, beautiful decks at front and back to enjoy a drink in th sun. Fantastic views. Great on site facilities for those with or without kids alike. Close to Cirencester Market town if you want to escape or the nearby Cotswold Country Park. An absolute gem of a property and location. Would revisit!

“Stunning property, far exceeded our expectations.”

Reviewed 10 May 2013

Beautiful house, stylish and well laid out. The terraces are a particular feature with views all around. The house is spacious, light and airy with a contemporary design, the pictures on the website don't do it justice! It is top end accommodation. The children loved the lower mill estate; cycling to the park, or the pool in very safe conditions. The beds were very comfy, all the furniture and accessories in the house were top quality, the only thing that I can find that could be improved is that some of the bedrooms were quite light in the mornings as the shutters didn't keep all the light out too well. Overall I would highly recommend this house and estate to anyone... I'd go back tomorrow.
