5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
Cirencester, Cotswolds, England
Songthrush is a spacious, family-owned contemporary home on the private Lower Mill Estate nature reserve in the Cotswolds Water Park. A fabulous property set in a quiet cul-de-sac location and overlooking a small reeded stream, you have miles of scenic walks from the front door and an abundance of local sporting, sightseeing and relaxing activities.

The house is a firm favourite with families and friends alike. Open plan living spaces make the property a very sociable option. The design mixes the warmth of wood floors with the clean-cut simple style of contemporary furnishings. Families are particularly welcomed; there are plenty of activities for all ages (see below). Children are well catered for with toys, games and books, and you are welcome to bring your well behaved dog.

You have free, unlimited access to the award-winning Arts...

We celebrated a family 50th birthday here. The tips given by the owner were excellent and the overall property was clean and comfortable. The on site facilities were perfect for adults and children and the local pubs and towns provided an opportunity for the more adventurous to look around the area whilst some of us were happy to put another...
