Great Family Get Together
The property is well located and in excellent condition and very well equipped, we wanted for nothing at all. We were a large family getting together for a short break along with our pet, the setting, and location was excellent, I would imagine stunning in the summer. If you want a well appointed relaxing property in a scenic setting, this is the place for you.
A wonderful comfortable home.
This was a special family Christmas which Songthrush made possible with the wow factor. It is a lovely comfortable house made a home from home by the owner. It's proximity to the Spa, pool and restaurant/shop made it ideal for us....I would not hesitate in booking again. The peaceful quiet, wild life and walks on the doorstep created some very special memories.
Great property for our family stay
We travelled from all over the world to meet for a family reunion, everyone had a amazing time at this property.
Great facilities both inside the property and within the complex, and really good communication during the booking process and pre-arrival. Would recommend.
Lovely house and a beautiful location
We have enjoyed a week's holiday in Songthrush at Lower Mill Estate. Amazing location for the children and adults to enjoy various sports activities and beautiful walks for the dogs too.
We love the Cotswolds and staying here have given us lovely memories to take home.
Wonderful family visit to Bath and The Cotwolds
I picked the Songtrush property because it was centrally located between Bath and The Coltwolds. The townhouse was very comfortable for the seven adults in our group. The facilities and surrounding nature reserve are beautiful. We plan to return soon to spend more enjoying the Spa and surrounding area.
Well equipped and excellently presented property
Rented this property with my children and their families. The property was well equipped and very clean and ample room for 8 adults and 3 small children. Excellent location for the on site spa.
Our nearest town is elegant, Roman Cirencester. A lively, attractive place full of smart shops - many of them independents,, cafes & restaurants, a ‘real’ market, and a great arts centre. It has a Waitrose and Tesco – both of whom deliver to the Estate to take the ‘self’ out of catering. Cirencester also has it's own Corinium museum, roman amphitheatre and Abbey grounds. Lower Mill is an ideal start point to explore the Cotswolds, with many scenic villages to explore, each with picturesque local pubs – many of which serve extremely good food. It's also handy for exploring Bath and Cheltenham. Just along the road there are comprehensive water-sports centres, where you can hire boats, canoes and paddleboards, and also take lessons. You can also find jet skiing, cable skiing, water skiing, paint balling, sky diving, hot air ballooning, riding and golf. For families, a short walk away is The Cotswolds Country Park & Beach, where you can hire cycles and boats, book sailing lessons, fish, cook a bbq and play on the sandy beach. Visit Butts Farm for baby animals and an award-winning farm shop & butcher; the Cotswold Farm Park, & Cotswold Wildlife Park. There are also antiques in Tetbury, William Morris’s house at Kelmscott, Westonbirt Arbortorium and the Abbey at Tewkesbury. When you book with us we will send you our comprehensive welcome pack with many more details of the surrounding area.
