Nestled beside Minety Lake within the exclusive Lower Mill Estate, the detached holiday home offers a perfect blend of luxury and nature for an upscale holiday experience. This property comfortably accommodates ten guests across three floors, making it ideal for families or groups of friends seeking a plush getaway. There is a flexible bedroom layout, including a super king and twin options, with the fifth bedroom having two single beds. A holiday at Minety Dawn promises you serenity with scenic lake views and en-suite facilities to meet your every comfort need.

Surrounding the property, the Lower Mill Estate offers an array of activities and amenities. You'll have access to a luxurious spa with indoor and outdoor pools, a steam room, a sauna, and a range of pampering treatments. For the more active, there is an array of water sports, tennis courts, and cycling paths to enjoy. Children will also find plenty to do, from swimming and playing in dedicated play areas to exploring the extensive nature reserves home to diverse wildlife, including beavers and deer. A picturesque walk here is a wonderful way to reconnect with your family and friends in a beautiful setting.

Cirencester, often called the ''capital of the Cotswolds,'' is a scenic 10-15 minute drive from Minety Dawn with a rich tapestry of historical and contemporary attractions. Spend a happy day exploring the Corinium Museum to delve into the area's Roman history and strolling through Cirencester Park to enjoy its vast, landscaped grounds. The town is also a haven for shoppers and foodies, featuring a market every Monday and Friday, plus a farmers' market twice a month. Cirencester also has a mix of independent shops, quaint cafes, and traditional pubs. For outdoor enthusiasts, the nearby Cotswold Country Park and Beach offers water sports, including the inflatable obstacle course – the Aquaventure, an adventure playground, and even a man-made beach, providing fun and relaxation for all ages. Other attractions include the long-distance Cotswold Way footpath, the picture-perfect village of Bibury, and busy market towns like Tetbury and Cheltenham.

Whether you're looking to unwind in the comfort of a high-end spa, engage in exciting outdoor activities, or explore the historical and cultural offerings of Cirencester and the wider Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Minety Dawn is a unique and memorable setting for your next holiday.
