“Beautifully clean and really well equipped for a family holiday”

We had an amazing week at Dunnock House in July. The house is spacious, beautifully clean and really well equipped for a family holiday. It was wonderful to draw back the curtains in the morning to see the lake, trees and wild birds. Although there was not always much time to admire the view as our grandchildren were anxious to greet the ducks each morning! The setting on the beautiful Lower Mill Estate was superb with restaurant, pool and park close at hand. Cotswold Sleeps staff went out of their way to help when we had a couple of queries before our visit. We would definitely visit again – July 2021 MD

“Perfect escape from London and not even mixed weather could ruin the fun.”

We had a glorious family stay for a few days over half term. Perfect escape from London and not even mixed weather could ruin the fun. Spent wonderful afternoons hiring bikes and cycling around different lakes and stopping to take in the sunset views. The children loved the playground – especially easy being next to the fab restaurant. Food there was good but a little slow for young children. Shop was opening as we left and looked a great new addition. Some lovely pub lunches at Potting Shed in Crudwell and Village Inn in Barnsley. Gorgeous. Also found a fab farm shop 5 minutes drive with divine meats, cakes, fresh veg and a little farm cafe with coffee and cake, while children can see little animals – Butts Farm. Finally we visited Cotswold Farm Park – 40 minutes drive but so worth it for young children. Book though! Thank you for a fabulous recharge and stay – Oct 2020 AF

“The house was even better than we imagined”

We have had a fabulous time on the estate. The house was even better than we imagined and the swimming/tennis/bikes has kept the teenagers busy. Great day trips to Bicester and Oxford – both around an hour away. Lovely walk to The Bakers Arms for a first-rate pub lunch. We’ll be back! – Oct 2020 ET

“fantastically well kitted out”

Very well organised and fantastically well kitted out with every possible convenience in kitchen/ dining areas – Aug 2020 BH

“Dunnock House is a real home from home”

Dunnock House is a real home from home, we had a lovely time there, the house is beautifully laid out and is perfect for the whole family. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us and we could have family time together as well as enough space to ensure we were not on top of each other. There was also plenty of room when it was just the two of us working from here. The water park has something to keep everyone amused. Whether it is walking in the beautiful grounds, looking for interesting animals, swimming, playing on the many amenities or eating out there is so much to do.  Dunnock House is perfectly placed to walk to everything the water park has to offer. The house overlooks a beautiful lake, and in the morning, you can feed the ducks they come right up to the door if you invite them!! The kids really love it (shreddies are their favourite snack). This is a really beautiful home from home. It has been such a pleasure staying here thank you for letting us stay –  July 2020 DL
