About the neighbourhood
Lower Mill is located five miles south of the historic Roman town of Cirencester, making it an excellent base for exploring the wider Cotswold area. There are many beautiful villages within a short drive. Much of the 500 acre estate is given over to natural habitat and there are several sites of special scientific interest. Lower Mill takes its name from the historic water mill found at the entrance, one of only two still working on the river Thames, which flows through the area. Lower Mill is within the Cotswolds Water Park holiday area with lots of water based activities from a man made beach to waterskiing, angling and sailing. There are many picturesque local pubs and restaurants within a short drive and The Bakers Arms in Somerford Keynes (serving food all week) is within walking ...
