CONTEMPORARY GLASS FRONTED LAKESIDE VILLA, WITH ON-SITE LUXURY SPA & HOT TUB!

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Lower Mill Estate - Skylark Lodge, Lower Mill Est.

5 Bedroom Luxury Villa - Perfect for Families & Larger Group - Sleeps 11+2 Cots

Skylark Lodge is a large 5 bedroom detached vacation villa, offering spacious accommodation, arranged over 3 floors, with 3 levels of outside living space. - Sleeps 11 + 2 x Cots.

Situated on a freshwater lake, this impressive property is in the modernist vernacular and benefits from an abundance of full height, full width, panoramic glazing - affording fantastic views across the lake and a wonderful light and airy feel to all of the living areas.

'The cantor levered deck areas appear to “float” across the lake as they are cleverly suspended away from the main structure and towards the lake itself, giving you the impression of almost sitting over the lake!'

With a palette of sharp cream render, intricate zinc finishes and expansive panoramic glazing, the lodge is a real head turner and has all of the potential to become a modern classic!

The lounge is located on the top floor, providing wonderful elevated views across the lake, nature reserve and beyond.

The three huge terrace areas are fully adorned with high quality outside furniture and are simply ideal for alfresco dinning, pre-dinner drinks on the terrace and barbeques.

Skylark Lodge is one of a limited number of properties that benefits from a luxurious 6 person HOT TUB, installed on the ground floor private terrace area of your lodge, complete with far reaching views over the lake. We challenge you not to feel relaxed!

Located lakeside on Howells Mere Lake and benefitting from its enviable south west facing aspect, this property offers a truly unique and luxurious holiday experience.

With lots of separate terrace areas to make the most of the fantastic views and an unbeatable location, Skylark Lodge really is the ultimate in luxury accommodation.

Guestbook comments from the manager
“The Perfect Xmas”



“Stayed here for Xmas. This place is amazing. If it's a chilled out holiday that you are looking for, then you'll certainly have that here. Excellent place to go for walks then come back to relax in the hot tub. The only thing I would advise is that if you are going to use every bedroom then be sure to take a tv for each room and an aerial lead. Full freeview tv is available. There's only a tv in the lounge though also, I wouldn't purchase the wifi that is available. I did, but couldn't connect to it all week, waste of money. Didn't really miss it though, it was a nice change not to have it.Had one of the best Christmases ever here. Perfect place for quality time with the family. I imagine it would be excellent in the summer. Definitely hope to return some time soon.”

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 2008

Skylark 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!

The estate consists of over 550-acres of unspoilt countryside, with 8 beautiful lakes to explore. It is also pretty flat, which makes for some lovely walks & cycle routes.

All of our holiday homes are just a few minutes walk from the award winning onsite Luxury Spa facility, set at the very heart of the estate. The spa itself consists of a luxury slate lined (heated) indoor & outdoor pools, sauna, steam room and fully equipped gymnasium.

There is also the UK's only Eco_pool, a naturally filtered outdoor plunge pool, which is a total blast, if not a little on the cold side.

There is lots to do in the local area, as the estate is located at the very heart of the Cotswolds Water Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Stunning inside and out!

  • 5 out of 5
Always wanted to stay in an upside down house, and this must be one of the best, the lounge and kitchen/diner is at the top of the house, giving a stunning view over the lake. Really fabulous, especially with the big balconies! All mod cons are top of the range, they spent time and money on the interiors as much as the building. We came with friends for a relaxing weekend, and we didn't want to leave! Reserve is peaceful and you are literally over hanging the lake! Jamie was very friendly when welcoming us and helped us where to go out for the day. All in all we all raved about the place since coming home, it's a must.

Stunning property, definitely luxury!

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed here for one glorious week with the family and had a fabulous time. There was something for everyone, the kids of course loved the outdoor pool and being able to walk around the grounds safely. The adults loved the Spa, tennis courts and bird watching. Being in the middle of the reserve was just fantastic, being able to enjoy the lake and the wildlife that went right up to our place. Everything was as described in the house, which was spotless. Liked that everything was easy to use and we just needed to bring food. Excellent value and family friendly, only thing for me that could improve was if the onsite shop had a bit more range, sure it would sell more if that was the case. Have already recommended to friends!
