Beaver Brook Reviews

“The house is lovely and fully equipped for everything”

We had a wonderful time celebrating a special family birthday. The house is lovely and fully equipped for everything you need. Fab location! Spent lots of time paddle boarding and kayaking on the lake, we loved it – especially the kids! Would happily come again, thanks! Jun 2023 VL

“lovely drink on the balcony in the evening sun”

Got stuck in the mud on the way to croome, then had to push the car. They found a parking spot in croome but we did not. Lovely drink on the balcony in the evening sun. Thanks, we had an amazing time at the pool 🙂 Apr 23 – Heidi

“great food – brilliant staff!”

The generations of McC’s!! Thank you, we have had a lovely time. The house is great. The balcony has been a haven. Paddle-boarding and swimming and cycling – wow. Finally a wonderful job every meal at the restaurant. Great food, brilliant staff! Aug 2022 JM

“we loved looking out on the balcony”

We had a wonderful time here. The kitchen was well equipped, everything was clean, we were really able to relax.We loved looking out on the balcony. The paddle boards were great fun and we went swimming every day! Great stay, thank you – Aug 2022 RH

“location was excellent in view of the close proximity to the swimming pool and the activity centre”

The accommodation was perfect for us as the five bedrooms allowed our two granddaughters to have a bedroom each. Whilst there was not a view over one of the main lakes, the location was excellent in view of the close proximity to the swimming pool and the activity centre. The property was well cleaned and well equipped. There was a nice gesture with the small local produce welcome pack, particularly the loaf of bread. The main swimming pools are a good size and good temperature although we did stay there in the middle of a heat wave so not entirely surprising about the temperature. We had a couple of sessions on paddle boards which we hired from the activity centre and played tennis although to book the court a sign-up sheet appeared first thing on the Monday morning outside each court with hourly slots available for the coming week. The Lower Mill Estate web site was less clear on this implying that tennis sessions could be booked via the activity centre. There is a small shop on site but only stocks essentials. Suus responded very quickly to our various questions – Aug 2022 RH

“we had a fabulous stay in this house”

We had a fabulous stay in this house, perfectly suited for a larger group. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped, we were able to prepare some real feasts. Plenty of equipment and toys for the children. The views from the balcony were really wonderful, and the estate is a great place to stay, very relaxed but also plenty to do. We would love to return for longer next time! – Jul 2022 RY

“The kids made great use of the games in the cupboard”

We had a lovely stay with the whole family including grandparents and my in laws from the US. The children had loads of fun exploring the Estate and paying with their cousins. They made great use of the games in the cupboard and the pool. Thank you for a lovely stay – Jul 22 EF

“great house, fitted 10 of us (6 adults and 4 kids) comfortably”

Great house, fitted 10 of us (6 adults and 4 kids) comfortably. Really well equipped and a stone’s throw from the activity hub, restaurant and spa. The kids loved the indoor and outdoor pools, playing football on the MUGA pitch and the Mouse Trail. Suus was super helpful before the trip with a really clear guide on what we needed to do to get there and access the property and also with recommendations for the area, and especially after helping us locate my daughter’s lost bunny toy! – Jul 22 KO

“Perfect for out family gathering of 6 adults and 3 children”

A lovely, large and well equipped house in a beautiful setting. Perfect for our family gathering of 6 adults and 3 children. We loved the access to the spa and pool and definitely made the most of this! Suus was an excellent host and responded extremely quickly to all our correspondence. The welcome and thank you gifts were a lovely surprise and the large, comfy towels and miniature toiletries in the bathrooms added a nice touch – Jul 2022 EF

“A good house and location for 3 generations”

“The perfect venue and house for a family holiday”

“The house is excellent and provided the children with all they needed”

Thank you for a great week. A holiday of two parts – firstly the noise and activity of two young grandchildren; followed by a much calmer house and visit to local attractions.

“Even better than we imagined”

Suus & Amy at Cotswold Sleeps really looked after us and were super helpful in the lead up to our holiday. They responded to our questions quickly and nothing was too much trouble. The house was exactly as described and even better than we imagined with everything a family with young kids could want!

‘Thank you for providing a lovely home from home for us all’

A lovely stay – thank you for providing a lovely ‘home from home’ for us all. Loved everything. Only thought would be to ask the park for basketball hoops and for the house to have an additional clothes airer for lots of washing (4 kids makes a lot of swimming stuff)! Loved it all and will defo come back 🙂 – June 2021 SH

‘This is our third stay there, and we were delighted, as ever’

We have just come back from another splendid weekend in Beaverbrook on the Lower Mill estate. This is our third stay there, and we were delighted, as ever. The house is beautifully furnished, with plenty of space and rooms if you are staying in a group. (However, because of Covid-restrictions, we were unable to do so on this occasion). The estate is just glorious, and we really enjoyed taking a leisurely walk around the lake, after spending the mornings in the swimming pool. We finished our walks with a drink at Balihoo – a perfect way to spend a weekend break! It really is such a wonderful place to stay, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a laidback break with friends and family in beautiful surroundings. Special Thanks to Suus at Cotswold Sleeps, for all her help – May 2021 BS

“Superbly equipped in general”

We stayed at Beaver Brook and had a lovely time with our two children. The house is superbly equipped in general and has many nice touches if you have young ones. The facilities on site were great and you will not be disappointed. Many thanks to Cotswold Sleeps in arranging this holiday and we look forward to returning one day – April 2021 TC.
