“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.”

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Osprey which is a large and modern property. It is a lot larger than we expected with plenty of space for both adults and children to relax. It is well stocked with all we needed for cooking including a BBQ and a lovely deck to eat it on. The hot tub is an added bonus, lovely being able to sit in it out on the deck watching the view.
We love the facilities that Lower Mill Estate has to offer including the pool and spa plus the new restaurant that opened the day we arrived. We enjoyed coffee and cake there while the kids could play at the playground right next door. Brilliant! The whole estate is child friendly and has a safe feeling to it which we love.
Communication with Lakeside Spa Holidays was great including initial email communication and then communication with Jamie the guest relations manager. Jamie came to get us settled into the house plus was available on phone and text throughout the weekend.
Thanks for a great weekend.
This was our third stay at Lower Mill, but the first one at Osprey Lodge. This was easily the best house we have stayed in, anywhere. Yes, it is vast (especially with only 3 of us staying), but it felt like home straight away. Oak floors throughout, granite worktops, Nespresso machine and Neff appliances in the kitchen, decent wifi, comfortable beds, John Lewis china. But the most fabulous thing was the amount of light which floods into the house. On our first morning there was heavy rain and a gale blowing outside, but it felt so cosy and bright inside that it was quite a shock when we braved it outside to visit Cirencester! The weather just got better and better, so we were soon eating our meals outside on the terrace or on the upstairs balcony. We used the Spa every day, and usually had it to ourselves. We walked around the lakes - but failed to spot the elusive beavers. But our favourite thing about our stay was just looking across the lake from the house and feeling at peace with the world......
Tim at Lakeside Spa Holidays was very helpful when we made the booking, and answered our queries promptly. Jamie met us at Osprey Lodge and showed us around, which saved us a lot of time as he showed us how everything worked. He was also very prompt in responding to queries later on in our stay, and was very knowledgeable about the property. We'd not had anyone to meet-and-greet us on previous trips, and it certainly helped us to settle in quickly. A big tray of goodies was provided - Nespresso capsules, biscuits, upmarket teas, dishwasher tablets, etc, which was a lovely touch.
Overall, a brilliant few days away, in a beautiful place and a wonderful house. We shall be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Osprey Lodge. The estate was so peaceful and we must have been in the hot tub every day enjoying the view across the lake with the swans and ducks sitting on the grass in front of the house.
Tim and Steve couldn't have been any more helpful and accommodating. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday with my husband and our friends.
I wanted a special place for a gathering of friends, and found this place online. The modern, luxury feel with lots of light worked really well, we felt very glamourous!! I felt extra special in the 4 poster bed with those views over the lake. This is a one off, the location in the reserve is a wonderful setting, great to walk around, or use the on site facilities. We did try the Spa, they were very friendly and helped us choose some nice treatments. Can't really say we didn't like anything, maybe the wifi could be a bit faster. I have recommended to my parents for their next break, they would love the wildlife.
Well, this place is a bit special! Choose it for a family gathering and made the right choice. The villa was so nicely done out and the space was great, enough for us all to be comfy. Too comfy as it was hard to get out of those beds! Everything was there that was described far as we could tell. We stayed in more than out due to the weather but could still enjoy the nature on our doorstep outside due to the use of lots of glass and super hot fire inside. Such a peaceful setting, the estate has a great Spa by the way, we had a girls treatment day and the prices were very reasonable and so relaxing (hot tub on the balcony was hard to beat though!). Will def re-book.
