“Fantastic House If you have small Children!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We travelled to the Goose Nest for the February school half term as we all needed a break. It was our second visit to the Lower Mills Estate as we stayed for Halloween last year in another property. We therefore knew what to expect of the Art Spa with its 3 pools and surrounding area but this time we were very pleasantly surprised by the Goose Nest as although it was a similar layout to our previous rented property it felt much more spacious and luxurious. Also and best of all it was so well kitted out with all the apparel required for small children, (mine are all boys 1, 3 and 5 yrs. old), that we could have left a lot of stuff at home. There were stair gates already fitted, multiple cots and high chairs, kid’s crockery, kids’ films, books, gaming console and even push chairs. All in all we really had a great time and waking to the very special view out over the lake each morning and sitting on the balcony for breakfast was just the best. Thanks again for a great break.

Management Response
24 Feb 2014
Thank you for a lovely review. As a family owned property we are really conscious of how much hassle it can be to travel with small children with all their paraphernalia to a new place. We have therefore tried hard to make the house as welcoming for children alongside maintaining the quality of furnishings and surroundings for the parents - after all it's usually the parents that need the break!

“Luxury Cottage with Spectacular views and amenities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is the second time we've stayed at Goose Nest - the first back in 2010. We were really impressed by how well the property has been maintained - it still feels like new and provides absolutely first class luxury accomodation. This visit was with friends (the last with a young family) and the cottage serves both parties equally well. The pool and spa are a couple of minutes away and there are lovely country walks on the doorstep and great pubs within easy reach. A wonderfully relaxing, chilled out weekend. Thank you again.

“Fabulous Place to Relax with Friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I have been to Goose Nest on more than one occasion, and love this beautiful holiday home with its wonderful views over the lake. However, this is the first time I have come without small children. The house is incredibly well equipped for young children, but equally I found it the perfect place for a weekend with friends. We enjoyed swimming in the (heated) outdoor pool, walking around the lovely countryside (also perfect for runners); and lounging around the house, chatting and catching up, with a glass or two of bubbles to accompany us! I shall definitely return.
