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.

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.

“The Perfect Xmas”

  • Review Submitted: 04-Jan-2014

“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.”

“Modern luxury in a beautiful ecological environment.”

‘I stayed here as part of a group of colleagues. The location is beautiful, plenty of outdoor activities and wonderful local pubs to enjoy. The lakes themselves are idyllic and even though our trip was in October we managed to enjoy the BBQ area and Hot Tub. I would recommend this highly, although if you are in a group noise travels across the lake and we were asked (politely) to keep the noise down so maybe not a place for a huge group party.”

“Cosy, peaceful retreat.”

  • Review Submitted: 20-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2013
“We really enjoyed our stay in the Lower Mill Estate, and despite the occasionally stormy weather we had great time. The spa was a nice place to relax, and we even braved the outdoor pool in November which was still warm enough to swim comfortably. It would've been nice to have more for the children to do in the winter months, maybe a soft play and a clubhouse could be added. But the Skylark lodge we stayed in was perfect for our needs and had everything (except decent phone/wifi signal) we could ask for. Maybe a BT Phone Hub could be added in the house, still pay as you go but it would be useful I think.”

“Superb location”

  • Review Submitted: 20-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
“The location of this property is superb, the lakes are beautiful. The property itself has balconies on all levels with hot tub, BBQ and hammocks so perfect for family or friend holidays. High specification furniture and fittings and everything you need is provided. Excellent communication and booking experience with the owners and good handover and key release. The use of the spa and steam rooms on site is an added bonus and the facilities are very good.”

“Beautiful property and very well looked after!”

  • Review Submitted: 10-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
“Beautiful property and very well looked after!”

We went on a large family weekend break and it could not have been better! Cozy rooms with magnificent views over the lake. Its an ideal property to simply relax and have a lovely barbecue when the sun is out. The hot tub was just perfect for a cool relaxing morning dip. The estate itself is a nice campus which unfortunately we could not explore much due to shortage of time. The only small grudge I have is that the wifi is not free. I understand it is meant to be a relaxing peaceful retreat but the addition of free wifi would be much appreciated by all I’m sure. A special mention of the manager, Jamie who was a delight to talk to and a great help for anything needed even kitchen rolls! You just cant go wrong with this one if you are headed towards Cotswolds.
