The Estate

Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswolds is a jewel in the patchwork quilt landscape of England. Amidst lakeside trails, rivers and hundreds of acres of greenspace, sits an award-winning spa, outstanding restaurant and thriving activity centre. Whether you hire a kayak, try your hand at windsurfing, practice your serve or just enjoy a drink while the kids run wild in the playground, the estate provides the very best of the great outdoors.

The lakeside nature reserve is comprised of nine lakes, two rivers and miles of walking trails, playing home to a diverse range of native wildlife, including otters, beavers and an incredible range of water birds.

Lower Mill Estate

The estate is designed to offer both relaxation and adventure in abundance. At the heart of the estate lies the spa with outdoor pool, indoor pool and eco pool, the stunning Ballihoo restaurant and the wood-fired pizza oven which overlook a fantastic children’s playground. Next door sits the tennis courts, MUGA and soft play, so you’ll never be bored.

There are plenty of reasons to go off exploring whether by boat across one of the nine lakes, on foot along The Thames or by bike to find the BMX track and forest playground. The Miss Mouse Treasure Trail helps little ones to keep up their stamina on the nature reserve, while the bird hides and picnic areas give you all the excuse you need to make a lazy day of it.
