Location, location, location!

Most of our holiday homes are based on Lower Mill Estate, which offers a unique, Cotswolds family holiday experience to suit all ages, set within the stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is the Cotswold Water Park. Whether you are looking for a summer get away with the family, a relaxing Christmas holiday for two in front of a log fire, or an Easter staycation to enjoy with friends, The Cotswolds are one of the top UK holidaying destinations, and a fabulous way to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life.

The houses are all lakeside and well equipped to offer a finely tuned balance of complete relaxation and outdoor adventure.  Lower Mill Estate is perfectly located just 90 minutes from London, set in 450 acres of nature reserve comprising 8 lakes, 2 rivers and miles and miles of walking, running and cycling along private woodlands and footpaths, all amongst beautiful wildflower meadows and fields. There is also a state-of-the-art on-site Spa (with heated indoor and outdoor pools, steam room, sauna, gym and treatment rooms) which is open to residents only, two tennis courts and children’s play areas. The Spa even has a lily-filtered eco-pool!

The on-site ActivityHub can help with water/cycling equipment hire, instruction and local information. They will deliver equipment straight to your door before you even arrive on site for your holiday. Lakeside wildlife includes over-wintering wildfowl, otters, owls, bats, water voles, deer and the first European beavers to be introduced into England.

Whether it is paddle boarding you are after, kayaking, walking (The Cotswold Way skirts the Estate), swimming, boating, fishing, birdwatching, water skiing, playing golf, horse riding or relaxing in the state-of-the-art on-site spa, you will not be disappointed with your Cotswold holiday in the beautiful natural surroundings of Lower Mill Estate. Go on, you deserve it… Make some memories!

Surrounding Lower Mill Estate you will find a host of picturesque Cotswold Villages and historic Market Towns, and Cotswold Sleeps can recommend many day trips to visit restaurants, theatres, Farm Parks, National Trust properties and gardens, and many many more local attractions. The Cotswolds are often referred to as “The honeyed stone heart of England”, and to name a few, Cirencester, Bibury, Cheltenham, Burford, and Bourton-on-the-Water are all well worth visiting and all within an hours drive.

Meet the Team & why you can trust Cotswold Sleeps

Suus Landy

My name is Suus and I live in the heart of the Cotswolds, the beautiful Cotswold Water Park. Managing Cotswold Sleeps has allowed me to leverage years of experience in sales, project management and property development. I pride myself on service, approachability, accountability and attention to detail. Having lived in and around the Cotswolds for more than 25 years I know the area pretty well, and have an amazing group of tradesmen on my books. Most importantly, being supported locally by a wonderful network of friends and family has allowed me to live and breathe Cotswold Sleeps for the past 5 years. I was born in Holland and moved to the UK when I was 12. Following 5 years in Asia, my husband, 2 children and I now live just around the corner from Lower Mill Estate.

I am supported by my wonderful team of local guest services managers, who make sure everything is just so before guests arrive to a property. Where would I be without them.

I love my job!

The customer service from Suus is second to none! Suus replied very quickly with any questions I raised and the property was spotlessly clean with some lovely added extras such as a welcome hamper which was very much needed after our journey to Merlin House.We had a wonderful week in such a beautiful setting in the Cotswolds, I would not hesitate to book again with Cotswolds Sleeps!

We booked our visit to Lower Mill Estate after seeing the property on the Cotswolds Sleeps website. The response time & information provided was exceptional & incredibly professional. We had a wonderful time & have already booked another stay based on our fantastic experience & service provided! Keep up the great work.

I booked this property to have a holiday with three generations of my family. The house was smart, warm and comfortable. It contained all we needed and more, to enjoy our time together. The hub and I claimed the master suite. The children loved the bunk beds! I loved sitting on our balcony overlooking a small lake. The only slight problem we had was in getting the correct address for a grocery delivery on our day of arrival but it was eventually sorted.It was a very short walk from Beaverbrook to the restaurant and the activity hub. The younger generation used the indoor pool, hired bikes and tried out the catacanoes with delight. The play areas were useful for using up the children's energy. We had a family meal in the Balihoo Restaurant one night. It was all over too soon.The main of the holiday was for us all to be together which doesn't happen very often as families grow and grow up. This aim was achieved very nicely, thank you Suus. It was also good to have personal and prompt aftercare when it was thought (mistakenly) that we had left something behind.

Sorrel House was a great place for a large family get together. It was comfortable, excellently equipped with stunning views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Truly a home away from home. Our family group of 9 hugely enjoyed our stay over bank holiday Easter weekend at Clearwater Villa. The villa is kitted out with all modcons and in a great condition. The welcome pack with bonus Easter eggs was very well received by all. My 5 year old twins especially loved their room and the numerous toys and books available. The estate is gorgeous with very well maintained facilities. We enjoyed swimming every day and the Balihoo restaurant was perfect for a family dinner. Suus and her colleague were very helpful and quick to respond over emails in the lead up to our stay. Would recommend without hesitation.

We spent a weekend at Serenity House on Lower Mill Estate (although we now wish it was longer!). The house had everything we wanted for a weekend celebrating my dad’s birthday. The house was so clean and the kitchen was well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the amazing views from the property and the hot tub looking over the lake.The facilities on the Lower Mill estate were also great. We enjoyed going for a walk each day, spending time in the spa and also having a drink at Ballihoo Club. There is plenty to do for all ages.Suus and the team are so friendly and are always available to answer any questions about the property or the estate. The customer service we received is the best we have ever received when booking a stay somewhere and they even arranged for an early check in at the property. The welcome pack was also a lovely gesture.Thank you for a wonderful stay. We made some wonderful family memories at Serenity that we’ll cherish forever. We will defo be back again soon.

We would highly recommend Cotswold Sleeps - Suus is so friendly and is always available to answer any questions about anything! Her and her team work with great efficiency, and provide excellent information on your stay.We've just come back from our second stay on the Lower Mill Estate and had a great time in Serenity (our first stay was at Lagoon Villa). Both properties were perfect for a week's break with friends and family. The villas are both situated in a gated area with private parking and enjoy lovely uninterrupted views across the water.Lower Mill Estate has extensive trails to walk round but is also ideally based for day trips to picturesque Cotswold villages and there are plenty of facilities nearby too.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and we will be using Suus and her team at Cotswold Sleeps again.
