About Tim Haywood - Property Manager

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!

Please note that I am the property manager for this property and not the owner.

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 2005

Why Tim Haywood - Property Manager chose Cotswold district

Copse Mere 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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Beautiful House, with everything you need for a Family Holiday”



“We have been back to this house a couple of times now as it's lovley. There is everything you need there for a family. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can think of, the house has lots of seating, a very large table that we have sat ten at. There is even a range of movies for the children on DVD which is a really nice touch. Highly recommended for those wanting a 'get away from it all' break in the UK, we look forward to coming back again soon.”

Fantastic break from city life

  • 5 of 5

We visited with two couples earlier in the year for a long weekend. The villa was spacious with well designed quality interiors, clean and plenty of room for all of us with everything we needed already there. We loved the reserve, so peaceful and great to be so close to nature. We didn't bring our kids this stay but will return with them in the summer - they will love the outdoor pool and the wildlife. Highly recommended.
