Rainy days at Lower Mill Estate


There is something quite special about the blue sky emerging after a day of rain.  A rainy day at Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswolds doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy your holiday though. With so much to see and do while you are here, it’s not just a fair-weather escape. Lower Mill Estate is beautiful, come rain or shine.

So, if you don’t fancy pulling on your wellies and heading out for a rainy walk or you want to avoid the muddy puddles while out on a bike, here are our top 5 things to do on a rainy day in the Cotswolds while staying with us at Habitat Escapes:

Enjoy a hot drink and a snack at Ballihoo
Open every day with a great selection of breakfast, brunch and lunch options, Ballihoo is the perfect place to hide away. Come inside and be welcomed by the smell of freshly-ground coffee beans, while drying off in front of a roaring log fire. Curl up with a good book from the library shelf, pick up a copy of the newspaper or strike up conversation with other guests and our friendly team.

Take a dip in the indoor pool
Enjoy the sound of the rain on the rooftop of the spa while you make a splash in much warmer waters. Wrap up in your robe and relax by the poolside with your family or warm up with a gentle sauna or steam before heading back to your Cotswolds holiday cottage.

Play games at your lakeside home
Enjoy the view from your luxury lakeside home and watch the rain from the comfort of your sofa. The spacious rooms are perfect for a game of hide and seek or pull out the board games and enjoy some screen-free time together as a family; it’s the digital detox that your children didn’t know they needed.

🌂 Have some fun with your little one at our indoor soft play
If the weather starts to take a turn for the worse, book an hour of exclusive soft play fun for you and your little one! They’ll have a great time climbing and sliding while enjoying the wildlife characters. Sessions are booked exclusively for one hour and are suitable for six little ones to play together.

🌦 Enjoy a relaxing treatment at the spa
Perhaps this is our favourite! Treat yourself to a unique GAIA treatment and enjoy the immersive experience from start to finish. With a range of luxurious scents to choose from and treatment rooms designed with nature in mind, you’ll feel like you are a world away from the weather outdoors. Once your treatment is complete, slip on your robe and enjoy the exclusive relaxation lounge until you feel ready to join the world again.
