Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend, started with a lovely welcome from Penny and gift basket from Robert and the resort is a great place to spend time together. The house was very well equipped. with wifi, bluetooth speakers and games. The rooms were comfortable, bathrooms clean and the kitchen very well equipped. We did paddleboarding on site so really easy as no moving people around and the lesson was fun so thank you to Jenny from the family adventure store. The spa on site had some refurbishment going on but this did not affect us as. Definitely recommended for families and small groups wanting a relaxed time together! Enjoy!

We stayed at this property from Friday the 10th to Sunday the 12th of February. The property is modern and stylish and well maintained. It was very clean and the owner provided good customer service. We enjoyed the facilities on site and the swimming pool and the SPA was big favourite. I will without any hesitation recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful location, gorgeous retreat, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for a weekend break. I can honestly say that it's a perfect location. The spa, pools and other facilities on site really add to the luxury appeal.

We went for a very low key retreat, but if you are more active or are hoping for a more adventurous break there are a plethora of activities that you can take part in or sign up for.

The house was gorgeous, light, airy, spacious and modern. The bathroom to bedroom ratio was perfect for our group of seven.

We loved it so much, we would come back again and are currently talking about making Lower Mill an annual break. Definitely would recommend.

Fabulous family week end - highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long week end stay at Cygnet Lodge in Somerford Keynes with 3 generations of family present to celebrate a 70th birthday.

The property was superb, plenty of room for us all, with a great kids escape/play area on the top floor mezzanine where they could be kept an eye on from the ground floor. The house was very clean and well equipped and has fantastic views across the lake and a superb deck for outdoor sitting/eating etc. It is also well located for the swimming pool/gym/spa and the on-site restaurant all of which were great and much fun was had in the pool.

We made use of the on-site walking and cycling trails and also headed out to nearby Bourton on the Water and enjoyed the maze, river and restaurants there, as well as visiting the Cotswold Farm Park which is a great interactive day out for the kids.

The owner was extremely helpful in promptly answering queries pre-booking, pre-arrival, making arrangements for arrival, during and after our stay - a pleasure to deal with.

We would definitely and highly recommend this property to others, especially families or small groups of friends and hope to visit again soon!
