OUTDOOR POOL OPEN AND HEATED 26Mar-31Oct,19Dec-3Jan Mere Hide (sleeps 6) , 17 Howells Mere, is a luxury lakeside bolthole within Lower Mill Estate, a 450-acre nature reserve set in beautiful Cotswold countryside; at the heart of the Cotswold Water Park. This is one of the few smaller houses on the Estate, perfect for a smaller group.The beautiful and tranquil setting provides a luxurious backdrop for the myriad of leisure activities available, both active and passive, a perfect hideaway from the stresses of life. Enjoy UNLIMITED ACCESS to the pools, gym and treatments(extra) at the £6mil Artspa. Mere Hide evokes memories of boat houses, dreamy lakeside homes and hides nestled in nature reserves. The luxurious furnishings and modern comforts are complemented by textures of old: stone building, comfortable arm chair, glazed tiles, timber panelling, log fire stove, hunting trophies and vintage blankets. Its west facing decked terraces extend from the living space and two of the three bedrooms above, they hover tantalisingly over the lake; the shimmering sunset enveloping the view and the mysterious mists announcing dawn .The third room can be transformed into a bedroom for two young guests by unfolding bunkbeds or it can be used as a study or play area. Central to the estate facilities sits the Artspa, designed to pamper your desires and remove all traces of stress. Swim in one of two heated 20m pools or reinvigorate yourself with a dip in the naturally filtered outdoor eco-pool. Relax in the steam room and sauna and revitalize yourself in the technogym. Luxuriate in the restful treatment rooms and choose from over sixty carefully selected relaxing therapies. (Outdoor pool will be heated from 27March-7Sept and 18Dec-5Jan) At Mere Hide you are a stone's throw away from the serene unspoilt landscape of the estate, teeming with thriving wildlife; from migrating sand martins to encountering wild orchids, from spotting beavers to discovering owlets. Walk through the woodland and meadows, observe from the carefully located hides and re-engage with a simpler way of life. www.wildinthecotswolds.co.uk - for local news, arts, food and drink, events and activites.
