Howells Mere 27, Crane Lodge


These 2 stunning freshwaters lakes located within the 550 acre luxury second home development at The Lower Mill Estate, within the Cotswold Water Park. These contemporary, luxury holiday homes are designed in such a way that they stylishly utilize natural light through vast expanses of glass and enjoy stunning views over the mirror-like surfaces of the lake.

These glass fronted, lakeside luxury holiday homes offer spacious living across three floors, with open plan living, kitchen and dining areas. Each property has two expansive sun decks which offer stunning views of the lake to enjoy ‘al-fresco’ dining or to simply soak up lakeside life.

These luxury holiday homes also have free access to the award winning Lower Mill Spa, setting them amongst the finest of Cotswold spa breaks. The infant Thames also runs through the estate where you can pick up the Thames Path National Trail. Alternatively, you might be lucky enough to encounter the resident beavers as you explore the 550 acres that are open to you. Whether you enjoy more active pursuits, or are after one of the premium Cotswold spa breaks, Howells Mere and Clearwater offer luxury, lakeside holiday homes.
