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

Misty View 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 on site 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

“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.
