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).

Lovely place to visit

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great property and in an excellent location. Great place to unwind and relax. We had one toddler and the property isn’t really suitable as there isn’t a barrier to stop access to the lake from the rear doors.

Swimming pools are great and so is the scenery

Perfect retreat for weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Booked it for a family birthday celebration with ages from 1-70. The facilities on site were good. Shame with the recent rain so could not use the Nature Walk. The house was well equipped and comfortable.

Superb house in the Cotswold Water Park.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. It is located close to the spa and excellent swimming pool with free passes provided. There are lots of outdoor activities available within the CWP though we were restricted by having a couple of very young children and by some lousy weather. We will definitely return in the future.

A spacious,well equipped property situated in a good position on Lower Mill Estate.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week to celebrate my 60th birthday in March.

Found everything at Ducklings to be pretty much as the property was described.

Owner very quick to respond to any questions and keen to make sure everything was as it should be.

Beautiful Home Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

My group of 12 people thoroughly enjoyed this home and the setting it was in. For a general trip to the Cotswolds id definitely stay here again. The place comes with free access to the swimming pool, sauna and steam-room which is a walk away. The place is secure and safe being a gated community.

The house has a lovely log fire, bbq facilities and a well equipped kitchen. Some DVDs and board games are also available.

Wifi wasn't bad. With 12 of us using it, it went down to 1Mbps but was enough for casual browsing.

Overall the place was very nice, at a good price, and located near to the activities of the Cotswolds.
