“Relaxing family stay”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Stayed at Skylark Lodge with our two 'children' and four grandkids for a week over Easter. The peaceful 5 bedroom house is situated right on the lake’s edge, with the downstairs patio (one of three) overhanging the water. The house was excellent and adequately large for the ten of us. Facilities in the house were excellent, beds were comfortable, the house was clean, and the games machine and hot tub were much used! The estate too: swimming, tennis, spa, restaurant (rather pricy!). We were lucky with the weather, sunny many days and dry all but one morning – unusual for Easter in the UK! This meant that lots of walking / bike-riding, outdoor tennis, and paddle-boarding was enjoyed by all. Walks around the many lakes were pleasant, as was the ‘Miss Mouse’ adventure trail. Can thoroughly recommend!

“Relaxing luxury break in Skylark”
Reviewed 21 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My retired ,husband and I spent a relaxing 4 days in Skylark in Lower Mill. All the main rooms have good views of the lake and there are terraces to sit out on all floors. As it was March the weather was variable but we loved sitting out in the hot tub. Also enjoyed playing on the games machine!

Food in the restaurant on site was good. Lower Mill sits on the Thames Path which we loved walking along. We wil return. Have already recommended it to family and friends.

Jamie and Gloria were very helpful at all stages of booking and arrival.

“Unforgettable weekend with the family”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We chose Skylark Lodge to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary with our two daughters and sons-in-law and five grandchildren 8-16 yrs. The house was roomy, beautifully furnished and decorated with everything you could possible need. It was spotlessly clean throughout and the beds were comfortable. There were three balconies to take advantage of the lovely views across the lake and one of these sported a great hot tub. The water park had facilities to suit all ages - a spa, indoor and outdoor pools and tennis courts, as well as a great restaurant. We had lovely weather and took a walk along the nature trail too. Highly recommend this house and Lakeside Spa Holidays in general.

“Incredible break with friends”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We have now been coming to lower mill for 7 years and still absolutely adore it. We have stayed in many of the houses rented through Lakeside Spa Holidays, the standard of each house is exceptional.

We were staying with a group of friends and this was the perfect location to relax and catch up. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub.

Skylark, like all the house, is just stunning and we couldn't recommended them more highly. Lakeside spa holiday offer an exceptional service and Jamie is always on hand to sort out any minor issue.

“Amazing family friendly place great for weekend with friends”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent a lovely long weekend in this gorgeous house. 3 families -6 children under 4! The house was lovely and perfect for everything we needed and more. The bedrooms were a great size and all comfy beds.
Lower mill itself is gorgeous and has everything you need on site - we only left to go to the supermarket! We hired a canoe which the children loved and the spa was great - swimming outside was lovely in the sunshine.
The children loved riding their bikes around the park and watching all the wildlife pass us by! The on site restaurant was lovely too - great lunches!
A fabulous place we will be coming again - a fantastic find!
Thank you

Great to get away, phones off, feet up and just enjoying the scenery. Definitely a green and pleasant land.
Could not fault the accommodation and facilities, very comfortable. Our second time in this fabulous house. Contemporary, spacious and very cosy with gas log burner.
Love it.
