Your holiday home

Daisy Chain Cotswold Family Holidays Living Area for celebrations on Lower Mill Estate

As you open the door to the living area at Daisy Chain, you will be wowed by the fabulous views across the lake.  This sets the tone for your holiday.  It’s time to relax, unwind and enjoy.  This wonderful space, with its vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove provide the perfect atmosphere for gathering family and friends together.  Wander out onto the balcony with a coffee and listen to the reeds whispering, watch the breeze rippling the water, glimpse the birds diving and just be. 

The fully equipped kitchen has everything from cast iron casseroles to gin glasses, an ice bucket to a coffee machine.  Perfect for easy family meals and anniversary celebrations around the large oak dining table. We’ve thought of everything so that you don’t have to. 

On the ground floor you will find three bedrooms and the family bathroom.  A kingsize room with ensuite bathroom has sliding, glazed doors leading to the sun deck and wonderful views of the lake.  As you draw the curtains in the morning you are greeted by the sun rising over the trees on the far side of the lake.  It’s very special.   Drink it in as you enjoy your morning cup of tea.  The single bedroom also enjoys this view, while the twin room is at the front of the house.  The bunk bed room is located on the first floor and with its full sized beds is fun for any age. 

Cotswold Family Holidays Master Bedroom Ensuite Lower Mill Estate

Delightfully cocooned away from the rest of the house, on the second floor there is a master bedroom with a kingsize oak bed and oak furniture and again features a vaulted ceiling. It also boasts its own en-suite shower room.  This room looks down onto the living area below and out to the lake beyond. It’s an ideal retreat away from the hustle and bustle of family life and perfect for Grandparents!

Daisy Chain has been carefully crafted to give you a wonderfully relaxing holiday, reconnecting with one another and enjoying activities together.  It really is a place where your adventures begin and memories are made.

What makes Daisy Chain different?

There are other houses to rent on the Lower Mill Estate, but we (and our visitors!) think that Daisy Chain is a little bit different.  When you walk into Daisy Chain you are not just walking into an empty house. You are walking into a home carefully crafted to enable you to make the most of your holiday. Lots of little extras to make your stay that much easier, and that much more fun – there is even a Canadian Canoe (and of course buoyancy aids) for your use.  You won’t be charged extra for anything – including use of the Canoe, high chairs, cots etc.  You will enjoy one of the best views on the estate.  Lots of the houses are positioned on smaller lakes with houses built all around them, so the houses ‘look’ at each other.  You won’t look out at anyone…just a beautiful ever changing lake with trees beyond…and kingfishers, herons, and egrets flying past!

We booked the Daisy Chain because of its child-friendliness and it did not disappoint. Our 3 year old loved the selection of toys and books (and the door stops!). The home itself has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Waking up to the sun streaming in over the lake was wonderful. We took advantage of the Mill Village outdoor pool (we were pleasantly surprised that it was actually properly heated) and the spa pools looked lovely too. It’s a great location for exploring the area. Naomi and Derek were great hosts – very responsive to questions before our visit and also whilst we were there. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at 26 Daisy Chain for our holiday, and I must say it was an exceptional experience.First and foremost, the property was immaculate. Cleanliness is a top priority for us, and we were truly impressed by how well-maintained everything was. It immediately set a positive tone for our stay.The amenities at the property were also remarkable. Our kids had an absolute blast in the soft play area, and the football area provided hours of fun. As parents, it's crucial to have activities for our little ones, and this property had it all. The fact that we could enjoy great coffee and pizza just added to the overall convenience.The highlight, however, had to be the stunning view from the property. We were captivated by the picturesque scenery, and the log-burning fire provided the perfect cozy ambiance to enjoy it. We spent countless evenings by the fire, making lasting memories.In short, we had an amazing time. It offered a perfect blend of comfort, fun, and relaxation. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday experience.Many thanks to the property owners for providing such a wonderful place for our family vacation. We will cherish these memories forever.

We had a lovely weekend staying at Daisy Chain to celebrate a family milestone birthday. The house is exceptionally well-equipped for adults and children, and has spectacular views across the lake. The pool and spa are fabulous and we were lucky to have beautiful weather for mid-October so we could take full advantage of the walks and children’s playground. All in all a very memorable family weekend. We would definitely recommend the property.

We had a fabulous time at Daisy Chain as a group of 9 friends, the cottage was really well equipped, there is a fantastic view of the lake from the living room and loads to do in the area and on the lower mill estate. It was lovely that there were lots of games!

We stayed at Daisy Chain last weekend. We’re a group of seven school friends who are now in their fifties so needed somewhere to relax and catch up. The property is immaculate and very well equipped. Two of the crazier ladies had a nice swim in the lake right opposite the house but I preferred the lovely pools in the spa! Two of the bedrooms overlook the lake and the balcony has space for a group to sit together with Prosecco and watch the sun go down. I highly recommend it. 😀

A beautiful comfortable family home overlooking the lake. The owners had thought of everything we needed and more, very well equipped with toys, books and cupboards were even labelled so that everything went back into the right place. We all had fun in the Canadian Canoe, exploring the lake and islands. The grandchildren enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans. We all enjoyed the use of the swimming pools and a couple of our family even tried the cold natural pond….too cold for me. We booked the indoor soft play , great idea for the children to have sole use. Very useful coffee shop and restaurant within a few minutes walk. Very peaceful and beautiful place to stay, we all loved it. We enjoyed Sunday Lunch at the Crown at Ampney Brook only 18 minutes drive away.

Nine of us, three generations, had a really pleasant three night stay at Daisy Chain early in December 2022. The property is very well equipped, is nicely laid out and very comfortable. We used the indoor, on site, swimming pool on three occasions, some of us tested out the outdoor heated pool and tried out the owners canoe on Spinney lake. The Sunday morning snow pleased the family, spending an hour or so outside. The Christmas decorations added to the atmosphere along with the wood burner. Views from the first floor lounge, over the lake, are very impressive especially with the sun rising in the morning. We all enjoyed the weekend so much that we have already booked a week in May next year.

We enjoyed our stay at Daisy Chain. We were pleased to find a Christmas tree and decorations for our December stay. The two grandsons enjoyed the many board games and the toys. Such a lovely view across the water with plenty of bird life. The accommodation is spacious and well-equipped. The information provided in advance was very helpful. We were able to have a long walk as well as swim in both the indoor and outdoor pools. We also ate in the restaurant - the food and service are good and the staff are friendly.

Daisy Chain is a wonderful property in an idyllic location overlooking one of the lakes. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the rooms are comfortable and practical. The canoe is a lovely bonus! We really couldn't have been happier. Highly recommended.

Daisy Chain is well equipped, light and airy with the most stunning view out over the lake. We stayed with our two daughters and sons in law and their small children. The accommodation was very comfortable with a lovely big living area. Naomi has thought of everything to make it easy and relaxed, and the site itself offers many facilities….the indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and eco pool being a highlight, although nothing could beat the evening sunset paddle on the lake….

Daisy Chain is a fantastic holiday house. We had three generations staying together and had a wonderful time. The shared space, overlooking the lake, with wood burner and sofas, table, space and balcony meant that we could all be together whilst enjoying various activities. The canoe that comes with the house resulted in a few adventures on the lake which were just brilliant. Seeing the sun rise over the lake in the morning was truest stunning. The house is really well stocked to a high quality and some lovely touches like bbq, coffee machine, blackout blinds, children's games and toys as well as some lovely adult books. Would thoroughly recommend it.
