Magnificent views over Somerford Lagoon, set in the private gated ‘Nines’

What a view….

2 Clearwater, The Somerford Nines, Lower Mill Estate, Cotswolds

The definition of Serenity is the state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled. It is no wonder this property was given this name; the magnificent views over Somerford Lagoon alone will give you a sense of peace and quiet, something we often lack in our day to day lives. You even have access to a lovely shared little island!

Subtly positioned in a private, gated area of Lower Mill Estate called The Nines, Serenity guests benefit from access to a private heated outdoor pool and mini gym within the Nines. This facility is shared only with the other 8 houses in The Nines, what luxury! Guests also have access to the main estate spa and pools as standard.

  • Sleeps 8 (can sleep up to 10 by way of 2 sofa beds – please contact Cotswold Sleeps to discuss)
  • Master king bedroom with en-suite (separate bath and shower) and stunning balcony views

Serenity Reviews

“so peaceful”

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. Comfortable, well appointed and so peaceful. Lots of laughs! Would definitely return – Sep 2021 “Mummy Mini Break 2021

“We wish we were staying for longer”

Here for a short break and we wish we were staying for longer. The peace here is exactly what we all needed to re-charge. Wonderful house and beautifully appointed. Love the setting. We made use of most of the facilities that didn’t need booking prior to arriving – gym, pool, kayaks. We did ask about spa treatments on the off chance but nothing available until mid-October! We’ll definitely be back, hopefully fairly soon. Our one request to the Estate management would be to increase the capacity of the Spa and the Restaurant. Other than that, we’ve had the perfect holiday. Thank you! – Sep 2021 DB

“We really enjoyed all the ‘tech’!”

We have had a lovely relaxing week at Serenity. It’s really well appointed with everything you could possibly need. We really enjoyed all the ‘tech’! The WiFi is excellent and we really enjoyed having the Sonos system. The BBQ was also excellent. Ballihoo books up a long time in advance for dinner (no slots for 10 days when we were there) but lunch there was really lovely. We also enjoyed the Potting Shed at Crudwell. We enjoyed swimming at both the Spa and the Nines pool. We also had great fun ‘Katakanu-ing’ on the lagoon. Loads of great walks with the dog. Thank you so much! Sep 2021 AT

“Great meals at Ballihoo”

We had a fantastic stay here, lovely place with everything we needed for a great week – including wall to wall sunshine! Lovely taking canoes on the lagoon, great meals at Ballihoo and the Bakers Arms, swimming, cycling, relaxing etc! Thank you! July 2021 TH

“A stay at Serenity is a real treat”

A stay at ‘Serenity’ is a real treat. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. Lower Mill Estate is stunning – kayaking on Somerford Lagoon a highlight. Wonderful to enjoy a much needed break with family, surrounded by peaceful nature – July 2021 JH

“Very peaceful & restful, comfortable and stylish property”

We loved our stay at Serenity. We would recommend the Mill Village pool for young children – very warm! The views from the balconies are just beautiful. Very peaceful and restful. Comfortable and stylish property. Suus and Amy, you were fabulous hosts, so responsive 🙂 Food at the Red Lion in Cricklade was lovely and we really enjoyed Bourton on the Water, lots to do! Thank you so much! Jun 2021 EF

“Needed more time to explore”

Thank you very much for our long weekend in Serenity. Such a beautiful house and where we would certainly love to stay in again but for a week, as we needed more time to explore the area and all it has to offer. P’s 70th birthday will be one to remember. Thank you Suus and Amy for so much help – June 2021 SB

“beautiful, modern and clean”

Just got back from a beautiful week staying at ‘Serenity’ House on the Lower Mill Estate. The house was beautiful, modern and clean, and the on site facilities were fun, family and couple orientated. What could have been a rather soggy week in the Cotswolds turned out to be a stunning seven-days-worth of memories that will last a lifetime. Could not recommend Cotswold Sleeps, and the team’s organisation and passion, more! – May 2021 LC
