Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 13. SORRY - STRICTLY NO ALL ADULT GROUPS PLEASE

Water view Lodge is a large 6 bedroom detached vacation villa, offering spacious accommodation, arranged over 3 floors, with 3 levels of outside living space. - Sleeps 13 + 2 x Cots.

Situated on a freshwater lake, this impressive property is in the modernist vernacular and benefits from an abundance of full height, full width, panoramic glazing - affording fantastic views across the lake and a wonderful light and airy feel to all of the living areas.

SORRY - STRICTLY NO ALL ADULT GROUPS PLEASE.

'The cantor levered deck areas appear to “float” across the lake as they are cleverly suspended away from the main structure and towards the lake itself, giving you the impression of almost sitting over the lake!'

With a palette of sharp cream render, intricate zinc finishes and expansive panoramic glazing, the lodge is a real head turner and has all of the potential to become a modern classic!

The lounge is located on the top floor, providing wonderful elevated views across the lake, nature reserve and beyond.

The three huge terrace areas are fully adorned with high quality outside furniture and are simply ideal for alfresco dinning, pre-dinner drinks on the terrace and barbecues.

Located lakeside on Howells Mere Lake and benefiting from its enviable south west facing aspect, this property offers a truly unique and luxurious holiday experience.

With lots of separate terrace areas to make the most of the fantastic views and an unbeatable location, Water view Lodge really is the ultimate in luxury accommodation.

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!

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 2008

Why Tim Haywood - Property Manager chose Somerford Keynes

Water view 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.

SORRY - STRICTLY NO ALL ADULT GROUPS PLEASE.

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.
