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 Paris & Amy Bartholomew
We are Suus and Amy, and we live right here in the heart of the Cotswolds. Managing Cotswold Sleeps has allowed us to fully utilise our years of experience in sales, project management and executive assistant roles. We pride ourselves on our service, approachability and attention to detail. Having lived in and around the Cotswolds for a combined total of around 40 years, we know the area pretty well. We have a wonderful network of friends and family locally, allowing us to live and breathe Cotswold Sleeps.
Suus was born in Holland and moved to the UK when she was 12. Following 5 years in Asia, she and her family (husband and two primary school children) now live just around the corner from Lower Mill Estate. Suus has experience of holiday rentals, sales and project management. Amy grew up in the Cotswolds, and following 10 years living in London and Surrey she has now returned! She has two children (also both at primary school) and lives 5 minutes from the Cotswold Water Park. Amy has extensive experience as Executive Assistant as well as managing restaurants and events.
