About Serenity

Serenity is a blissful waterfront escape on a tranquil gated estate in Somerford Keynes. The spacious holiday home sleeps eight people in four well-appointed bedrooms. Families and friends enjoy tranquil views and amenities that include a hot tub, shared heated outdoor pool, a private island, and a mini-gym. The cottage is part of The Nines, an exclusive area of the Lower Mill Estate, so-called as only nine properties share these wonderful features. If you yearn for a peaceful escape with beautiful views, wonderful walks and cycling routes, and plenty to keep the kids happy, then Serenity is perfect for you.

The Cotswold Water Park is perfect for a holiday in any season. The 450-acre nature reserve has been sympathetically developed to protect the environment while allowing visitors to enjoy the stunning surroundings located just outside the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition to the miles of waterside footpaths and traffic-free cycling routes, guests of Lower Mill Estate have access to two all-weather tennis courts, two adventure playgrounds, a soft-play area, spa, gym, village shop, restaurant, and an activity hub where you can arrange equipment hire and instruction. Everything you need for a wonderful holiday is ready and waiting. Bring your binoculars to enjoy the diverse varieties of wildfowl, otters, bats, deer and a small colony of European beavers that thrive in the protected landscape.

The wider Cotswold area is easily accessible for days out. Cirencester is a short drive from the cottage. The market town has been a popular hub since Roman times. It has wonderful features, including an amphitheatre, museum and remains of the ancient town walls constructed around the community the Romans called Corinium. Chedworth Roman Villa is also a must for anyone with interest in the past. Cirencester also has a great choice of places to eat, drink and shop.

Days out can include fun and sun at the Cotswold Country Park and Beach, greeting the animals at the Cotswold Farm Park, and exploring picturesque towns and villages like Bourton-on-the-Water, or National Trust properties such as Clevedon Court and Snowshill. Bath and Bristol are both under an hour's drive, each with a fantastic array of sights and attractions. However, with so much to see and do on the Lower Mill Estate, you may choose to stay on-site and make the most of the excellent opportunities for fun from the doorstep.
