    About this property

    Birdwatchers Bliss is situated on an exclusive gated development, just south of the popular town of Cirencester in Gloucestershire. The contemporary, lakefront home makes a luxury base for those who wish to explore this beautiful part of the country, while the excellent facilities on offer make it a sensible choice for families. Guests have access to a shared, on-site spa with swimming pool, tennis court, children’s playground and restaurant.

    The contemporary property has been designed with high attention to detail and boasts sleek yet homely furnishings and interiors throughout. Birdwatchers Bliss can comfortably accommodate twelve guests across six spacious bedrooms.

    On the ground floor are two king-size bedrooms, both with access to the terrace, a children’s bunk bed room and a bathroom. Upstairs, on the second floor is the master bedroom which boasts it’s very own en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms, a second family bathroom and a cosy snug area. On the second floor, to allow guests to enjoy the wonderful lakefront views is the wonderful open-plan living space which comprises of a lounge area with balcony access and a modern, fully equipped kitchen with dining area

    Outside, guests have access to a roof terrace which boasts wonderful lake views and makes the perfect spot to dine al fresco on a warm Summers evening. After a busy day spent exploring this beautiful area, guests can choose to enjoy a sundowner on one of the multiple balconies while admiring the sunset.

    On the region’s southern fringes, Cirencester is one of the major centres of the Cotswolds, and offers much more than just sightseeing. It’s certainly a town with a history – at one time the second-largest in Britain – but it hasn’t become a tourist hub in the manner of many of England’s heritage cities, meaning it’s even more of a joy for those who do come exploring.

    You can get an insight into the history of Cirencester at its Corinium Museum, this being the Roman name for the town. Mosaics and artefacts bring the story vividly to life, and children can get involved too with special activities. Those who love art, nature or both will find something to please them at Cirencester’s Elemental Sculpture Park, where more than 150 pieces are dotted around the woodlands.

    You wouldn’t expect to find many beaches in Gloucestershire, but there is one at the Cotswold Country Park at Shorncote to the south of Cirencester, a place made for family fun with a water park and children’s playground. For a bit of culture, the town’s Sundial Theatre offers a varied programme of events, and those with an eye for a bargain can explore the antiques and collectibles on offer at the Corn Hall indoor market on Fridays.

    The town’s excellent dining scene certainly shouldn’t be overlooked – you will have no trouble tracking down anything from an artisan coffee to a Michelin Star three-course meal. Among the highest-rated places in town are Tierra & Mar, a great spot for tapas, and The Falcon at Poulton, where the food is restaurant quality and the setting is a delightful country pub.On the region’s southern fringes, Cirencester is one of the major centres of the Cotswolds, and offers much more than just sightseeing.

    "We needed a large house for a family birthday celebration - and the house certainly fitted our needs with 6 bedrooms. The house is lovely and pretty well equipped. There was plenty of room for 11 of us not to not to get in each other's way. A couple out words of warning, however, be aware that the living space is on the second floor which means for older visitors, the stairs can be a struggle. Also the kitchen area is very small for the size of the house but we did manage to cook a full dinner for all of us.All in all we had a wonderful weekend and would certainly go again."

    "We were a large extended family ranging from 5 yrs to 70+. We found the accommodation very spacious and clean. The only thing that would have made bedroom arrangements a little easier would of been to have had another bedroom with the ability to split the bed into a twin bedroom, due to the age ranges. Taking a bike or hiring is definitely a must in order to make the most of the lovely area and bike trails. Having an indoor pool ideal as well. Something for all ages to do at the Estate, which is a beautiful setting, with lots to keep all ages entertained. The estate is kept very well and feels a very safe environment to be within."
