Lower Mill is located five miles south of the historic Roman town of Cirencester, making it an excellent base for exploring the wider Cotswold area. See also: Local activities and Sports below.
Lower Mill Estate is a private community of architect designed homes set within a private 500 acre nature reserve, with two Sites of Special Scientific Interest and a £6m ArtSpaTM.
The majority of the houses within the nature reserve are used by their owners as weekend/holiday homes. Many of the owners are families with young children or couples who enjoy the peace, nature and tranquillity of Lower Mill and all the varied outdoor activities available, from walking, sailing, fishing, cycling, tennis and swimming to owner-organised community festivals on the August Bank holiday and New Year holidays.
The few houses that are available to rent are best suited to family gatherings and guests who want to relax in a beautiful home and enjoy the amazing natural outdoor environment and ArtSpaTM. It is not suited to noisy parties as noise travels easily across the water and disturbs others. Hen and stag parties are prohibited. All guests are asked to sign in advance a Code of Conduct governing behaviour at Lower Mill. This sets out the main Estate Rules and forms part of the rental contract. The Code of Conduct is designed to make all guests aware of the ethos of Lower Mill before they arrive, to and to promote consideration for others. This ensures that the expectations of both guests and owners are respected and that the enjoyment of Lower Mill is enhanced for all.
