We now have free wifi access in the house.The spacious accommodation consists, on the first floor, of two double bedrooms with views over the lake; one with a bath/shower ensuite and the other a king sized bed. There is also a twin bedroom and a single bedroom. This floor also has a family shower room. In addition, both double rooms lead out onto a balcony with table and chairs, perfect for an early morning coffee complete with an exquisite view of the lake. The second floor consists of one large bedroom with twin bunk beds (4 people) and a family ensuite bathroom. There is also a single bedroom.To maximise the ease and comfort of the place, we provide luxurious bed linen and towels on each bed. We do not provide linen for the travel cots. We find that our guests prefer to provide their own for their little ones. In the living room area, we have one flat screen smart TV connected to the Internet with major channels, DVD player, around 42 DVDs, Bose docking station and Wi-Fi. There's also a log burner for cosy nights in and three comfy sofas and two tub chairs.The extensive downstairs open plan kitchen, dining and living room makes it a very sociable option, and has patio doors opening out onto the rear decking area overlooking the lake. There is outdoor furniture including a table and two benches, and an outdoor sofa area. There is also a charcoal barbeque. The dining area seats everyone with a long table and twelve chairs. We have a well-equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, double-oven, grill, 5 ring gas hob, dishwasher and washing machine all complimented by a good selection of crockery, equipment and utensils. Enjoy dining 'al fresco' on the outside decking/first floor balcony and relax as you watch the wildlife whilst you sip a glass of chilled wine!You have free, unlimited access to the award-winning spa a mere 4-minute stroll away, with slate-lined, naturally filtered heated indoor and outdoor pools. For the braver souls, you can swim among the water filtering lilies in the eco plunge-pool – great for rejuvenating those tired limbs! Also relax in the large sauna and steam room. For the energetic guests, there is an extremely well equipped techno-gym, in contrast a library and tranquil reading lounge (all within the Artspa). For those in need of a pampering weekend, again, visit the prestigious Artspa and sample over 50 therapies for both men and women, in one of the peaceful treatment rooms. You can choose any thing from a hot stone massage, body wrap, facial, pedicure or a manicure, using products from the luxurious Pevonia Botanica range - please be sure to book this in advance though – the additional cost is worth it!There is never a dull moment on the Lower Mill Estate. With over 550 acres to explore, a trampoline, bird watching, fishing, kids play areas, tennis courts, miles of walking trails, beaver spotting, the spa and canoes to rent. On site there is also an estate shop offering all the essentials, a nice place to stop for coffee, the best home-made cakes and a selection of wine and beers. A new restaurant called "Ballihoo" opened on site in July 2015. Outside of the estate it's recommended to take in lunch at 'Made by Bob' in Cirencester or 'The Potting Shed Inn' at Crudwell. You could walk or cycle to the 'Wild Duck' at Ewen or 'The White Hart Inn' at Ashton Keynes. Or, just as easy, the kitchen is well equipped to prepare large and great meals.Also nearby, are the beautiful Cotswold towns of Cirencester, Tetbury & Malmesbury. Cheltenham, Gloucester, Oxford, Bath, Bristol and Swindon are also within commuting distance. For those needing to travel to and from London, there has been a recently improved train link to nearby Kemble station, making access very easy. In the Summer Holidays, Half Terms and Christmas/New Year, only week long (or more) stays are accepted. However 'last minute' short stay bookings will be considered. During low and mid season there is a minimum of a three night stay. Any queries please feel free to contact me, it is no trouble at all.
