Welcome to Lakeside Spa Holidays

Immersed in nature, experience the undivided relaxation of the Lower Mill Estate from the haven of your Cotswold lodge. Allow the comfort of your lodge to reflect the ethos of your stay. Relaxation and tranquillity, without compromise. With expansive lakes as your backdrop and birdsong your soundtrack, you are truly a guest of nature.

Or lay in until midday before heading to the spa with your unlimited access pass for a spot of pampering. Come evening, enjoy the lakes at your leisure with a sunset paddle. During your stay with Lakeside Spa Holidays, you can go with the flow and embrace spontaneity or simply enjoy having no plans at all, the choice entirely yours.

Lodge Collections


Lower Mill Estate

At the Lower Mill Estate, nature comes first. The 500 acre Nature Reserve boasts the perfect balance between nature and living, allowing some of the most varied flora, fauna and untouched wildflower meadows in England to flourish. With this nature-first attitude, it’s no wonder the estate includes two Sites of Special Scientific Interest and is home to an abundance of wildlife including deer, otters, badgers and beavers.

The Lower Mill Estate is a stunning setting to explore by foot, bike, kayak or paddle board. With seven lakes, three rivers and hundreds of acres of meadowland and woodland to discover, you’ll feel truly immersed in the untouched beauty of the great outdoors, and all from the doorstep of your Lakeside Spa Holiday lodge.  


Lower Mill Spa

Welcome to your exclusive haven. Harmonised with equal parts luxury and nature, drift further into relaxation as you fully indulge in bliss. Feel the weightlessness of both body and mind as you take a morning swim or dissolve tensions with a rejuvenating treatment. 

From newborns and children of all ages, to adult-only sessions, the spa is a welcoming space for all and access passes are included in all our lakeside lodge stays.

Eat & Drink  

The Ballihoo Clubhouse

All Lakeside Spa holiday lodges come equipped for self-catering. But after a long day making memories on the estate or following a lazy evening on the lake, cooking is the last thing you probably want to think about. And with an all-day restaurant onsite, you don’t have to. 

Head to the Estate's restaurant, Ballihoo, for food and drinks throughout the day. Enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast to fuel your morning on the water, stop off for a midday stone-baked pizza served from the pizza shack, or dive into dinner after a long day making memories with friends and family.
