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

Osprey 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!

Osprey Lodge is a chic glass fronted 4 bedroom property, presented over two floors, within a truly wonderful lakeside setting - on the beautiful & mature Clearwater 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 the Clearwater Lake, this is a really spectacular property.

Enjoy of the 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. Osprey Lodge is a lovely 4 bedroom glass fronted property, with a great position on the Clearwater 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.

“Relaxing family weekend away in luxury pad...

“Relaxing family weekend away in luxury pad with hot tub”

“Just back from a very relaxing weekend at Osprey Lodge Lower Mill Estate. The house is amazing, it sits on a lovely plot overlooking the lake. It is huge, with great space downstairs and 4 big bedrooms upstairs and numerous luxury bathrooms. The two big double rooms have great views and balconies overlooking the lake. ?The outside space is perfect for families with young children as all the doors lead on to decking which is surrounded by a glass barrier. The outdoors is topped off by the awesome hot tub which we used throughout our break.?The facilities on the estate are amazing with a great spa with large indoor and outdoor pools., which we perfect for the rainy days. There are a couple of playgrounds on site with trampolines and tennis courts. There is also a handy shop where we got our morning papers and supplies. The grounds and lakes in the estate are great for walking, scooting and cycling round. There is a great pub which is just 15minutes walk away in the local village.?Would definitely love to go back but just hope for better weather next time so we can enjoy the outside space more.”

“Ticked all the boxes!!!”

“From booking to our arrival we experienced an excellent service. Full marks!! The lodge itself has great spacious rooms and has amazing panoramic views across the lake and with the added bonus of the outdoor jacuzzi, we felt thoroughly spoilt! The spa facilities which are a 5 minute walk, are excellent and took full use of the pool and steam room. Do book this property early, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Tim!”

"Great Place for a weekend with friends"

"Great Place for a weekend with friends"
  • Review Submitted: 20-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
“Six colleagues and I stayed at Osprey Lodge for a relaxed weekend away. Lower Mill Estate was the perfect destination for this as it was calm and tranquil. Despite being near half term it wasn't overrun with kids, which was important as a group of adults (some of whom were escaping their own children for the weekend)! Jamie was there to great on arrival and explain all aspects of our stay and accommodation. The downstairs of Osprey Lodge looked exactly like the website photos, a real wow factor upon entering and a great open plan space to cook, eat and relax. The hot tub was a great addition and worth spending the extra on. However be aware that due to the communal nature of the estate there are regulations around times of day that hot tub can be used. There are good sized bedrooms upstairs providing comfortable accommodation for 8 people. However I personally felt that some of the upstairs areas were a little more tired than the rest of the lodge, with some scuffed paintwork, broken blinds / curtains and some broken fixtures in the bathroom, but nothing that would hugely impact your stay. However there was a complete lack of mirrors in the bedrooms (bathrooms had one each over sinks) which with a party of 6 girls made getting ready a little tricky! Also I would have to say that they really scrimped on the quality of the towels, and you would be advised to bring your own toilet roll! The kitchen was well equipped with a good size fridge and enough crockery and cutlery for 8 guests. The only comments would be that there were no black bags for rubbish, that there was no sieve for draining items such as rice, and they need to invest in a 4 slice toaster (catering for 7 breakfasts with a 2 slice toaster was slow going!) The Spa was great and again we were really pleased that we included this in our booking, its a lovely addition to your stay and good value too. The pub recommendations were also really useful, and we only really scrapped the top of the extensive guest information provided. A great excuse to return and explore the Cotswolds again!”

“amazing find”

“Just back from a 4 night break in the Osprey Lodge. A group of 2 families with children. ?The location is stunning, the lodge overlooks the lake. situated near the spa and shop. The lodge itself was truly beautiful with everything you would need. Loved the hot tub. Booked this through Tim who was very helpful and very pleasant to deal with. Jamie met us at the lodge and answered all our questions, very nice guy. We will absolutely be back.”
