Forty One Mill Village is a four bedroom lodge situated on the Lower Mill Estate in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park. The lodge sleeps 2 - 8 comfortably. The master bedroom has a king size oak sleigh bed and far reaching lake views. The second bedroom also has a king size oak sleigh bed and en-suite with a walk-in shower. The third and fourth bedrooms are made up as a twin (single and slide out second trundle bed) and bunk room (two single stacked bunk beds). There is a family bathroom opposite with mains fed shower and deep steel bath.
The living room centers around an Inglenook fireplace and oversize log burner with three sets of double french doors leading to the covered deck.
The living room has a large L-shaped sofa and smaller 2 seater that comfortably cater for 8 guests. Guests can enjoy entertainment provided by the 40" 4K Smart TV and Sonos streaming music player. A chunky oak dining table also seats 8. The deck is extended to provide al fresco dining and BBQ'ing overlooking the embryonic River Thames. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked including a Nespresso coffee maker.
Changeovers: Please note we endeavor not to take same day bookings / changeovers. This gives our housekeeper time to turn the lodge around for guests but crucially means you can arrive as early on your arrival day and leave as late on your departure day as you would like where possible. In peak holidays where same day changeovers are a necessity we asks that guests arrive after 1600 and leave before 1000.
Activities: If you're a watersports, cycling or walking fan you will be well catered for within the Estate and surrounding area. The on-site Ballihoo club provides a great informal dining environment and bar only a short walk from the cottage within the development itself. There is a playground opposite Ballihoo and. the cottage is two minute walk from open grassland perfect for a spot of Croquet, frisbee or a kick-about! The development has a heated outdoor swimming pool and sauna open all year round (note the cottage does not have access to the Artspa).
Pets: As pet owners, we know it can be hard to find good quality pet friendly accommodation. Our beloved Spaniel thoroughly enjoyed his time at the cottage and we hope that if you are pet owners, your dog will enjoy the area as well! We welcome guests to bring one well behaved dog. Please contact us if you would like to bring more than one dog with you on your stay.
Getting around: Whilst only a 10 minute drive form Kemble station (90 minutes to Paddington) we would recommend having access to a car for your visit to Forty One Mill Village. The lodge has one parking space (unallocated) a short 15m walk from the front door. Additional parking is available on a first come first served basis in two other communal car parks on the estate.
