    About this property

    This fabulous holiday home, in a private gated nature reserve, has panoramic windows overlooking the lake and decking, with access to the Estate’s ArtSpa included.
    Augusta House is located on the Lower Mill Estate in Somerford Keynes, a development of stunning, contemporary homes situated in a private 450-acre natural reserve. The gated and managed Estate comprises woodland and meadows, crossed by three rivers and surrounded by serene lakes. Guests can enjoy the Estate’s ArtSpa which includes indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, an eco-pool, sauna, steam room, gym, a hard tennis court and treatments by arrangement (at additional cost). You are also free to enjoy the nature trails and cycle tracks on the Estate, as well as boating and fishing. Walks around the largest lake, Somerford Lagoon, are restricted during winter months when migrant birds over-winter, but there is good bird-watching from hides dotted around the Estate.
    Venturing out into the surrounding area you will find Cirencester, the old capital of the Cotswolds, just 6 miles away, and other delightful villages to visit include Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    "We had a great family holiday at the Augusta House.The location is fab, lovely walks on the doorstep, walking trails (we did a lovely treasure trail with our grandchildren), great swimming pools on site, very nice cafe/restaurant on site which has a lovely sunny outside sitting area near to the children's play area, and which has a take-away menu. Tennis courts available (just sign up at the court gate to book) and bikes/bike equipment available for hire. Everyone very friendly.The accommodation: warm; cosy sitting room; well equipped kitchen; very comfortable beds; plenty of space for an extended family; great views from two of the bedrooms and the sitting room.What more could you want!"

    "Unlike some properties at Lower Mill with limited views, The Augusta House overlooks the wonderful Somerford Lagoon and it's so lovely and relaxing to be able to watch and listen to the different birds that come and go. In the evening, we could almost reach out and touch the bats that came out to catch their supper. The whole estate is a joy for those of all ages, who love and appreciate nature. We don't have young children but for those who do, they would be well catered for. There's a lovely atmosphere across the whole site and everyone we met was friendly. A strict code of conduct ensures that nature, wildlife, and peacefulness take priority. The Spa is an absolute oasis; beautifully clean and with the outside pool being even warmer than the inside one. Our week long stay was at the beginning of October and one warm, sunny weekday we had the outdoor pool to ourselves for almost 2 hours-bliss!The house itself is spacious, clean, very well equipped for the number of people it can accommodate and would be warm and cosy during cold weather (we had to turn the heating off). The beds were very comfortable and the linen and towels clean. The only disappointment was the 'General Store'. This amounts to no more than a few shelves of random items within the Ballihoo Restaurant. They didn't even stock ordinary tea and were charging 60p each for tomatoes which, needless to say we declined. So, if you don't want to spend your holiday food shopping, make sure you either bring everything with you or arrange to have it delivered. We shopped at The Organic Farm Shop in nearby Burford (the organicfarmshop.co.uk) and would very highly recommend it. They stock pretty much everything you could need and the food in the cafe is delicious. Well worth a visit in itself for anyone who appreciates good quality food, with much of the fruit and vegetables being grown on site."

    "The house suited us very well in terms of its facilities and location on the Lower Mill Estate. It is well equipped generally and there's plenty of space. If only the deck had got a bit more sun during late August, though the view made up for it."

    "The house was spacious, and the location was perfect. There was a large decked area with table and plenty of chairs at the back of the house, overlooking the lake. Two of the first floor bedrooms had balconies overlooking the lake. We were surprised that the top floor bedroom didn't have a window to take advantage of the view, but a skylight, that didn't spoil the holiday though. My son in law took his kayak and made full use of it on the lake. The grandchildren loved the swimming pools, indoor and out, as we all did, and the weather was brilliant. We also enjoyed meeting the swans with their cygnets, and watching and identifying the many different birds. There were some good dog friendly pubs close by, The Bakers Arms, The Greyhound and we particularly enjoyed eating at the Wheatsheaf. It was a wonderful relaxed holiday and we all wanted to stay on for another week."

    "We had a wonderful week with our grown up children and their partners at Augusta house to celebrate our wedding anniversary. To wake up in the morning to the lakeside setting was truly enchanting. The owner was most welcoming and greeted us with a couple of bottles of bubbly. The house was equipped with everything you need, it felt like a home away from home the large open plan kitchen diner was perfect for family spending time together and creating those special memories. Our 3 sons love sports so we were thrilled with the on-site tennis courts after having worked up a sweat we could relax in the indoor or outdoor pools. We loved our time at Augusta House and will be back."

    "We had the best weekend ever! Such a gorgeous house, warm and welcoming! Excellently well equipped, comfy and so luxurious! We all had real trouble leaving the house and hope to return again soon❤️"
