Overview

About the property

House on Lower Mill Estate, Somerford Keynes, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - Peaceful Location, Very Family Friendly

Ducklings is a beautiful 6 bedroom, 3 storey modern home which sleeps up to 12 people. The rear of the house overlooks a lake which often has swans, coots, moorhens and lots of other wildlife in and on it. There is plenty of outdoor furniture to relax on whether having an evening meal or simply a glass of wine.

All beds have duvets with cotton bed linen. A large towel can be found on each bed and each bathroom has a hand towel in it. There are two travel cots but we do not provide linen for them. We find that our guests prefer to bring their own baby linen.

During your stay you can use the washing machine but we do not provide washing powder or conditioner. We do provide dish washing tablets.

If you want to use the wood burning stove then logs can be purchased at the estate shop (or bring your own).

Check in time is 4pm and after. Check out time is 10am.

We cannot take any hen or stag parties or any parties likely to result in noise at night. This is the rule of Lower Mill Estate who encourage families to stay in peaceful surroundings.

WE ARE NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR ANY MONDAY TO FRIDAY (4 NIGHTS) FOR THE SUM OF £1000. OF COURSE THIS MEANS £250 PER NIGHT FOR UP TO 12 GUESTS ! EMAIL US IF YOU WANT THIS OFFER. PLEASE NOTE, IT IS NOT AVAILABLE AT EASTER, HALF TERM, SUMMER HOLIDAYS, CHRISTMAS OR NEW YEAR. THESE WEEKS CAN ONLY BE RENTED OUT FOR A FULL WEEK (7 NIGHTS).

Well equipped and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We had a slight problem with the key code but it was quickly sorted. A birthday weekend for 12 mixed adults and children and the accommodation was very comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped and we really liked the long table which easily seated everyone. The pool facilities were great for young and old and we spent a lot of time there as the children had such a good time. The walks around the site were peaceful and relaxing and we had no need to use the car at all during our stay. An excellent weekend and many happy memories.

Beautiful house, beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well equipped, modern house. It is clean and bright, spacious and well equipped. Could do with more tumbler type glasses but when that is the only thing you can think of, it's not too bad at all! We had a lovely time!

Ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

The accomodation is attractive and is well equipped, has beautiful views and bird life. The family enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools. Very relaxing. The 4 year olds didn't fall in the lake, and all the kids felt free. I could have brought tennis racquets and a ball.

Another lovely family reunion at ducklings

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Ducklings. The property is beautifully and stylishly decorated and very well equipped. The site management team were most helpful, and although the reduced changing facilities, and lack of showers at the spa due to refurbishment work was a little difficult with young children, the facilities at the house, and the plentiful hot water for showers there, made the inconvenience minimal. We can thoroughly recommend "Ducklings".

Excellent location and accommodation for a weekend away with family/friends

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ducklings to celebrate a family birthday with a weekend away at the Lower Mill Estate. There was 12 of us in the party ranging from Grandparents to Grandchildren. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped . Perfect to accommodate a large party. The property is in the peaceful Lower Mill Estate with beautiful views across the lake. Short walking distance from the outdoor play area, tennis courts and spa.

Use of the Spa is an added bonus. Adults and Children had a great time in the indoor and outdoor (heated) pools. Some of us even braved the eco pool (not for the faint hearted in Autumn).

There are nature walks around the lake and it is only a short walk into the local village where there is a lovely pub (The Bakers Arms) that does great food and were very welcoming to a large group for Sunday lunch.

All in All Ducklings exceeded our expectations and would thoroughly recommend staying there.
