Dunnock House is in the highly sought after Lower Mill Estate on the Cotswolds Water Park, offering guests luxurious holiday accommodation in a waterfront location. The detached house sleeps up to eight people in four bedrooms, with every room finished to a high standard. The layout is perfect for modern families but also suits groups of friends who want space to unwind and socialise in these serene surroundings.
Lower Mill is a dream holiday destination for anyone who yearns for the peace and beauty of the English countryside. In addition to the decking area which leads directly onto lawns and down to the lake, guests at Dunnock House also have access to the estate's fantastic facilities that include tennis courts, lakes, adventure playgrounds, a spa with treatments, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a sauna, and miles of footpaths and cycling routes. There is also a man-made beach just two minutes away by car. The estate has a 450-acre private nature reserve to provide a delightful oasis of calm in the modern world. There is no traffic around Dunnock House so parents can let their children play and ride their bikes without having to worry about cars.
From summer days spent boating on the lake to woodland walks spotting wildfowl in winter, there are four seasons of fun waiting to be had. Local attractions include Westonbirt Arboretum, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach, and the Corinium Museum and Roman amphitheatre at Cirencester. Guests can hire bicycles, go waterskiing and kayaking, try paintballing and archery, and even enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled track day.
The surrounding towns and villages are a gold mine of quality restaurants ranging from gastropubs to Michelin starred establishments, High Street shops, bijou boutiques, and weekly markets. You can do something different every day of your holiday, or go no further than the waterfront deck with some corn or seeds to keep visiting ducks happy.
