More About Lower Mill Estate

Lower Mill Estate is just a few miles from Cirencester, and sits in one of the many beautiful, derelict quarries in and around the Cotswolds. These redundant water-filled quarries create lovely, safe lakes for the huge number of visiting or resident wildlife, which in turn means a wealth of exciting flora and fauna for us to enjoy. To name but a few you might spot Cuckoos, Nightingales, Water Voles, Sandpipers, as well as the family favourite – the House Martin. And if you’ve very lucky indeed you might just catch a glimpse of the resident Beavers. On the estate you will find miles and miles of stunning walks, mixed in with some decadent luxuries we all need once in a while. There are a host of holiday rental properties ranging from luxurious couples escapes, to larger child friendly houses stocked to the gills with equipment and fun and games to keep your little ones entertained.
There is a superb onsite restaurant Ballihoo, which offers a comprehensive breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and takeaway menu. Just in front of Ballihoo is Millstone Park which has tennis courts, a multi-use games area, and children’s playground, so your children can play whilst you wait for your meal or grab a quick coffee. The ice cream is also second to none! Ballihoo also encompasses the general store, for all your daily essentials, as well as logs and kindling for those colder months.
