Guestbook comments from the manager
“A fantastic place to stay in, in an idyllic setting”



“The property was perfect for our requirements and exceeded our expectations. More than enough room for 7 adults and a baby. It was spotlessly clean on arrival, well equipped and furnished. We particularly liked having a barbecue on Christmas Day and the Hot Tub was fun too! The Lower Mill Estate was a lovely place to stay at. Pleasant to walk around and the gym, swimming pools and sauna were a real bonus. Although I don't really like to go back to placed where I have stayed I would not hesitate staying there again.”

Hello! - Great that you stopped by to take a wee peek at our luxury holiday villas, thank you for your interest - I am rather flattered!

So let me share with you a little about the uniqueness that is the Lower Mill Estate.

WARNING: Reading in could seriously change your holiday habits!

Tim Haywood - Property Manager purchased this house in 1997

Oak Lodge is a unique holiday villa, situated on the prestigious Lower Mill Estate, the UK's first and as far as I am aware, only, residential nature reserve.

The estate is a real haven of peace and tranquillity and in my opinion, the perfect antidote to the stresses + demands of everyday life and forgive me for perhaps being presumptuous, but I do think you are going to absolutely love it!

Oak Lodge is a chic glass fronted 4 bedroom property, presented over three floors, within a truly wonderful lakeside setting - on the beautiful & mature Howells Mere Lake.

Thoroughly contemporary in its exterior and interior styling - with 2 x double bedrooms, two of which benefit from direct access onto a private balcony area, with beautiful views over Howells Mere Lake, this is a really spectacular property.

Enjoy of the gas effect wood burning stove for cosy nights in, whilst looking out on the majesty of your very own nature reserve !

- Located within the Lower Mill Estate. Spa lodge is a lovely 4 bedroom glass fronted property, with a great position on the Howells Mere Lake - Furnished in a contemporary style & with a gas fire burning stove.

Secure car parking & just 3 minutes walk from the Spa facility.

- World Class award winning, £ 6.5m on-site private spa complex, fully included in your holiday - Sleeps 9.

LUXURY AND NATURE COMBINED - WOW

  • 5 out of 5
Loved Lower Mill, the location around the lakes is really unique, took some beautiful pictures of the wildlife too as an keen photographer. The property, well it really was wow to us, what a view. Also warm, clean, inviting and we got a warm welcome form Jamie, and he was around if we needed anything. My wife relaxed in the spa daily, swimming or having treatments – she got a bit addicted as they were so good (but lucky for me well priced!). Nipped to Cirencester, not far way to stock up and wonder around, and also discovered famous The Bakers Arms – nice to stumble home as not far to walk. Really impressed with this place. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.
