Our property complies with all latest industry standards for ensuring the cottage is cleaned and sanistised to Government requirements.  We have received accreditation from Visit England and the AA that we have met industry and government standards to keep our guests safe.

The approach to Cornerstone Cottage, with views of the lakes and water gardens, sets the scene for an active, relaxing holiday surrounded by nature. The cottage is at the end of a stone pathway, in a quiet and secluded location away from the Estate’s internal roads, yet within a few minutes’ walk of the Activity Hub and Pilates centre, the lakes, nature trails and the LME Spa.

Cornerstone has a wide south-facing sundeck at the rear of the property, overlooking the beautiful Mill Village water garden, which is accessed through the Living Room’s French windows or via a wooden side gate.

A perfect venue for all sorts of holidays and short breaks. With 2 ensuite double bedrooms, 2 further bedrooms and family bathroom as well as a fully-equipped kitchen.

Inside the cottage you will find a cosy and contemporary feel featuring an open plan living/dining area with wood burner and four bedrooms which includes two master rooms each with en-suite bathroom and balcony.  A Travel cot and high chair are also available.

Air conditioning is available in the whole house, the energy-efficient heat pump system provides room heating in winter. The house also benefits from substantial upgrades to the original insultation specification.

Our guests benefit from ultrafast internet WiFi connection (Gigaclear nominal average speed 300Mb/sec download & upload) – ideal streaming video.

The house is equipped with a smart TV, DVD player and a CD sounds system.

The Spa is a short walk away. It is an award-winning, multi-million pound delight to the senses. Exclusive to guests at some of the houses on Lower Mill Estate, it is included in your holiday. Facilities include an indoor and an outdoor heated pool, sauna, steam room and gym. A wide range of treatments is available at an additional cost.

Other LME facilities include tennis courts, a multi-sports pitch, table tennis, bike trail and playgrounds as well as an additional outside pool open all year heated to 30˚C and a sauna. The onsite Activity Hub arranges yoga, watersports and other courses, as well as the hire of bikes, canoes, SUPs and other watercraft.

Lower Mill Estate is a private nature reserve with hundreds of acres of lakes, fields and forests and miles of  walking/cycle paths including the Thames Path which runs near to our cottage. For young children this comes alive with The Miss Mouse children’s nature trail and treasure hunt which begins near to the house. Children’s nature activities are also available during the school holidays.  There is also fishing and there are picnic spots around the estate, and you can get up close to birds and animals, including, in a number of wildlife-watching hides.

Dining options abound for our guests. You may like to try our very popular private chef dining service with restaurant-quality food cooked for you by a chef right at the cottage – and with no need to think about washing up or the drive home afterwards. There is an extensive range of dining options, including our popular private chef who will come and cook for you, catering for a wide range of prices from £24.95 per person for a 2 course Italian meal to £119.95 for the stunning 11 course tasting menu. This has been recommended by many of our guests, including one who is herself a chef.

In addition, there is a wide range of restaurant options from fine dining to takeaway delivery. The onsite Ballihoo Restaurant and Clubhouse is a short walk away catering for drinks, meals, take away and general supplies. Our local pub The Baker’s Arms is a fifteen-minute walk.

Nearby is Cirencester, often called the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’. There is much to explore in the Cotswolds and in the surrounding area and we would be pleased to help you discover the Cotswolds and the surrounding area – history, shopping, craft, food and more.
