Originally home to the horses that farmed the land, The Stables is now part of an exclusive development on the Lower Mill Estate, a stunning 450 acre private nature reserve. Within metres of The Stables is access to the heated outdoor pool, fishing, beautiful walks (including Thames Path) cycle paths, tennis, sauna, shop, kayak and bike hire. The lovely old village pub is a ten minute stroll. The Lower Mill Estate is located in the Cotswold Water Park. With over 140 lakes, there are plenty of activities to try such as fishing, sailing, waterskiing, kayaking and wakeboarding as well as fantastic cycling and lovely walks along the Thames Path and Thames & Severn canal. A perfect base for exploring picturesque Cotswold villages and visiting historical towns such as Cirencester, Cheltenham,...Originally home to the horses that farmed the land, The Stables is now part of an exclusive development on the Lower Mill Estate, a stunning 450 acre private nature reserve.

A perfect base for exploring picturesque Cotswold villages and visiting historical towns such as Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath and Oxford. The Stables is a contemporary, stylish three bedroom retreat. Downstairs there is a living room with logburner, flatscreen TV/DVD player, comfy seating for six, floor to ceiling window to the front and a stable door opening onto the orchard at the rear. There is a selection of DVDs as well and books. Across the hall is a kitchen/ diner with Shaker style cream units, butler sink, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, microwave and toaster. There is a dining table and chairs for six. Upstairs are three cosy bedrooms. There is a double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, a kingsize bedroom with TV and DVD player and a twin bedroom (one of the single beds is 1.7cm/5ft 7inches in length). There is also a shower room with WC and basin. The rooms have been built into the eaves so there is restricted head height in some parts which adds to the charm of this conversion. There are Velux windows in the two double bedrooms so you can look at the stars as you lay in bed. To the front is a pretty courtyard with a bench to take in the morning sun. At the rear in the orchard is a dining table and chairs for six, sun loungers, parasol and a BBQ. There are five different type of fruit trees and the Thames runs alongside (fenced). The orchard is particularly pretty in Spring when the trees are in blossom. For bookings of a week or more we recommend no more than 4 adultsMore

Stayed here for a weekend in mid-May. The cottage is lovely and big enough for six adults, with nicely decorated rooms, linens and towels. The well stocked kitchen allowed us to cook a few meals, which we shared around the kitchen table. Location is perfect,...More

About the neighbourhood
Located within a Site of Special Scientific Interest nature reserve, the cottage sits within 450 acres of abundant wildlife and unspoilt countryside. Set within the private Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswold's Water Park, visitors have access to the activities and facilities on the estate. Decades of glorious neglect from industry, followed by another decade of sensitive development, have created a huge unpolluted nature reserve with flourishing flora and fauna. With professionally tended woodland, lakes and meadows all within the estate’s expansive boundaries, the vast array of resident and visiting wildlife includes beavers, otters, muntjac deer, kingfisher, grebes, badgers, herons, barn and tawny owls, egrets, teals and sand martins.
Getting around
Some of the nearby charming villages worth a visit: Cirencester “Capital of the Cotswolds” - Four miles away, the historic Roman town in the heart of the Cotswolds Bibury - Typical Cotswold village, 15 miles from Lower Mill. Bourton-on-the-Water - Known as 'The Venice of the Cotswolds' and is an extremely popular attraction Stow-on-the-Wold - A delightful market town Burford - generally regarded as the Gateway to the Cotswolds Lower Slaughter - Quaint village which sits beside the little Eye stream and is known for its’ unspoilt limestone cottages in the traditional Cotswold style. Upper Slaughter is one mile away from Lower Slaughter and resides on a gentle grassy slope above the stream that connects the two villages
