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 2006

Why Tim Haywood - Property Manager chose Cotswold district

Burnt Orchid 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

Burnt Orchid is a chic glass fronted 4 bedroom property, presented over three floors, within a truly wonderful lakeside setting - on the beautiful & mature Howells Mere Lake.

Thoroughly contemporary in its exterior and interior styling - with 3 x double bedrooms, two of which benefit from direct access onto a private balcony area, with beautiful views over Howells Mere Lake, this is a really spectacular property.

Enjoy of the great Scandinavian 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. Spa lodge is a lovely 4 bedroom glass fronted property, with a great position on the Howells Mere 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 8/9.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“I rented The Lake Lodge as a treat for my birthday, and had various friends visit throughout the week, including some with small children. The house was great - lots of room, clean, modern, and child and pet friendly. Having the spa on site was such a bonus when the weather was not so great. and the manager was very helpful with all our requests (even helping to find a babysitter one night). It was such a lovely, relaxing break, and well worth the money for the service provided. Will definitely return - 5*”

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.
