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

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 20 years I know the area pretty well, and have a fab 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!

We had such a lovely 3 night break celebrating a belated 50th birthday. Arriving at Dunnock House was such a lovely surprise as it was immaculate and beautifully presented. The house was very well stocked and felt very comfortable. We really felt so relaxed and loved the the position overlooking the lake. The ducks seemed to enjoy our company! We loved the welcome pack such a thoughtful gesture. Thank you so much we will definitely return.

We chose Serenity for a 'significant birthday' weekend, and we had a fabulous time. The house was perfect, well equipped and furnished, and we enjoyed the views from all the balconies. We even saw a Beaver at close quarters!The communications, help and advice from Suus was outstanding, and she went 'over and above' in her role to ensure we had a memorable visit. Definitely a place to return to.

Lovely family holiday at Dunnock house. The house is extremely spacious, clean and well equipped with lovely views over the water. There is plenty to do in the estate and surrounding area including a lovely pool, tennis and walks. However we were more than happy to relax on the sofa with a cup of tea (or glass of wine) and watch the ducks and birds on the lake. A very relaxing time had by all, thank you

Our stay was lovely - the house was super well equipped and very clean. The estate facilities were amazing - we took advantage of the outdoor pool and sauna and enjoyed a nice meal at the onsite restaurant. Communication was spot on throughout.

We have been to stay in Sandpipers at Lower Mill a few times now and always have a great time. As an extended family with three generations, everyone finds something to do.The property is ideally situated with amazing views over the lake and easy access to both the central spa and restaurant facilities as well as the adventure bike trails that take you closer to the wildlife.The kitchen has the best selection of pots pans etc of any holiday property we’ve been to which makes making a meal for 10 a pleasure.Truly a home from home. Thank you!
