Great to get away, phones off, feet up and just enjoying the scenery. Definitely a green and pleasant land.
Could not fault the accommodation and facilities, very comfortable. Our second time in this fabulous house. Contemporary, spacious and very cosy with gas log burner.
Love it.

“Another great house at Lower Mill”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is our 3rd time staying at Lower Mill Estate and our first in this house. We love it at Lower Mill as it is great for a family, so child friendly and lots to do for the whole family.

Skylark is a large property with plenty of space to spread out, including lovely large decks on all 3 levels. The view at sunset from the top deck is something else!

Skylark is well fitted out with everything that you would need for a long weekend or holiday including plenty of cups, glasses and crockery (I hate it when there is only one per person and you are always running out and therefore doing dishes the whole holiday).

Thanks again to Lakeside Spa Holidays for making us welcome.

“Relaxing, comfort, a must try experience”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

i am writing this review from top floor lounge of this wonderful house. Overlooking a beautiful lake though floor to ceiling windows, this house simply has everything needed for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. although at the time of writing, we have probably witnessed the soggiest August in history, this hasnt stopped us from having a great time.
Spread over 3 floors, this roomy, well furnished modern house provides a perfect opportunity to spend time with the family in a safe and well maintained complex of holiday homes.
Equally, spending time away from the family where needed is just as easy, with three separate balconies giving that extra bit of space for those moments of solitary.
The house sits on the edge of one of the lakes within the site and is just far enough away from the spa and shops. The Spa has a gorgeous indoor and outdoor pool which at 1.2 meters all the way along is safe for the kids to be left to enjoy.
the newly opened restaurant offers a nice selection of food plus a relaxing setting to enjoy a coffee and chance to catch up on the day.
The grounds are as mentioned extremely well looked after and add to the picturesque views and walks available.
Back to the house - we were welcomed by Jaime who manages the property for the company we booked through. although we were earlier than expected, the house was ready and Jaime showed us a few of the settings we needed through the week. the owner had kindly provided some free coffee for the nespresso machine along with guest passes for the spa and pools. The house also provides a lovely hot tub on the lower balcony which at an extra cost could be used for the stay. I can imagine if it wasnt raining as much, this might have been a decent addition to the house!
The beds were comfy and clean, the kitchen was well equipped and the only thing that let it down was lack of wifi but in truth, it was nice for us and the kids not to be attached to a mobile device for a change. There is also a nintendo wii for those wishing to partake but bring your own games as the ones here didnt work due to over use i suspect.
overall, a beautiful, relaxing holiday for all of us and we are already planning to book again so i guess that says something.
Enjoy!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Everything we expected and more, we were 3 families and there was something for everyone. We had a fantastic week-end and the only complaint I have is it wasn't long enough we did not want to leave. Skylark Lodge is very spacious with lovely decking areas, the ideal place to relax with a cool glass of wine. Thanks to the customer relations manager keep up the good work.
