CONTEMPORARY LAKESIDE HOME IN PRIVATE COTSWOLDS NATURE RESERVE, ARTSPA INCLUDED

Lower Mill Estate House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

The Augusta House is set on a peninsula in a unique development of architecturally stunning homes in diverse designs. The Lower Mill Estate is the UK's first residential nature reserve, located in the heart of the Cotswolds and historic Gloucestershire. With its extensive leisure facilities it is an unparalleled rural retreat. The House lies on the shoreline of Somerford Lagoon, one of the most important lakes for over wintering wildfowl in the southwest. The gated and managed Estate consists of 450 acres of parkland crossed by three rivers (one of them being the Thames) and surrounded by seven lakes. This spacious property has been designed to capture the beautiful views and tranquil waterscapes. It has panoramic double glazed windows on ground and first floors, giving over the extensive decking, across the water to the picturesque Mill Village. There is a wood burning stove in the large open sitting and dining room, and all modern conveniences in the well equipped kitchen.

"SANCTUARY IN THE COTSWOLDS"

"Sanctuary in the Cotswolds"
  • 5 of 5
Flying in from Australia with 2 young children and arriving to such a pleasant property easily made us forget that we'd travelled from the other side of the world!

We were overwhelmed by how well equipped the house was - not just the vast array of equipment, furniture and fittings; but also the quality of those items that were chosen. It made the whole stay feel very homely. Our children loved the location on the water’s edge, and soon got to know the local duck and swan population very well.

The fantastic communication from the owner, his PA, and the staff at the complex made us feel very welcome. The location is perfectly central to easily visit most parts of the south and southwest of England - without forgetting the beauty of the Cotswolds which have to be explored.

We would highly recommend a stay at the Augusta.

LOVELY HOUSE IN A LOVELY LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Augusta House as my sister in law was getting married locally. The house is located on a safe, gated complex making it ideal for families. The accommodation was clean and well presented with a lovely decking area next to the water. We used the leisure facilities a couple of times and were very impressed with the out door pool. The owner and his PA dealt with all our enquiries efficiently and quickly and were helpful with all my questions. I wouldn't hesitate to book the property again or to recommend it to others.

LOVELY HOUSE IN PEACEFUL SETTING

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Augusta house for a long family weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. It is in a lovely position overlooking the lake, which is visible from the lounge, patio, and two of the bedrooms.
The house was spotless, with good quality fixtures and fittings, and nice extras such as the games and ipod dock.
We went to Tesco for our main shop, but noticed some people used online delivery shopping, as well as the estate shop.
I would recommend this for a relaxing family break.

AUGUST 2009

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at Augusta House. Bryce was very helpful when we booked the holiday, and everyone on the estate was friendly, from the cleaners to the security personnel.

The pictures are a little dated now, and the rushes and trees have grown, which means the views are slightly restricted when sitting on the decking, but its fine from standing. Don't let this put you off, it means that the area has matured and is teaming with wildlife: waterbirds, housemartins (4 nests on the house while we were there); bats; butterflies; dragonfies, rabbits and watervoles etc.

There is plenty to do for everyone. We played tennis, went swimming and pond dipping with the children almost everyday.

Our oldest boy (11 years) went waterboarding at a school a few minutes drive away, and the local pubs serve excellent food.

We would love to go back to Lower Mill Estate and Augusta House.

The Estate brims with wildlife through every season: in spring rare orchids bloom, in the summer the fields are alive with butterflies, in autumn geese stop by on their migration. With two SSSIs it is home to otters, bats and sand martins and rare species such as watervole, purple heron and great crested grebe. The communal facilities include a heated outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, tennis court, children's play area and pets corner. There is boating and canoeing, a network of nature trails and bird hides, cycle tracks and bridle ways and the site is close to the numerous water activities of the Cotswold Water Parks: 133 lakes covering 40 square miles.

The pretty village of Somerford Keynes is a 5 minute walk and the village pub is one of many around the area that offers a warm welcome with excellent food and real ales. Five miles from Cirencester, for shopping and sightseeing, the House is a good base for exploring the Cotswolds

Other Activities: Canoeing, jetskiing, birdwatching
