This delightful cottage is located on the Cotswold Water Park, and makes a lovely retreat for nature lovers, and an ideal touring base.
This attractive cottage is set on the quieter side of the award-winning Lower Mill Estate, a 450-acre nature reserve boasting a large variety of wildlife and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Built in Cotswold style, the cottage has a southerly aspect with uninterrupted views across Somerford Lagoon, the largest lake on the estate. The decking provides a wonderful location for al fresco meals from breakfast to dinner. Steps lead down from the gated decking area to a pontoon onto the lake. The River Thames flows 20 yards from the front door and the Thames Path leads to the source of the Thames near the village of Kemble. The village of Somerford Keynes is a short walk away where the local pub offers freshly prepared home cooked food and local cask ales. The surrounding area offers a network of lakeside paths and bridleways to explore hidden countryside on foot or by bike. Many fine traditional pubs, cafés and hotels are found in local Cotswold villages offering delicious homemade food and speciality beverages. The historic town of Cirencester is a short drive away and beautiful towns and villages such as Bath, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway and Cheltenham are all within easy access. The Cotswold Water Park offers a host of activities including water skiing, cable skiing, archery, shooting, paintballing, golf, aerial adventure, angling, horse riding, sailing, canoeing and rally driving.
