“Very peaceful”
Reviewed September 10, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely house. Good position if you want to visit the spa. Spa and surrounding walks great.
Owner very helpful, nothing too much trouble. Allows dogs which is a plus, to us. Would certainly recommend. Wild life in abundance.

“Exactly as described and more”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We are three generations of family who try to holiday together each year. With the family increasing it becomes more difficult to find accommodation to suit our needs. This year Songthrush was perfect and I would have no hesitation in returning. We were extremely comfortable in the property and well provided for in terms of equipment and useful information regarding the workings of the house and the local area and amenities. This to us contributed greatly to what was a relaxing and enjoyable seven days.

“Fantastic stay!”

We booked Songthrush for a surprise 60th birthday weekend and had a fantastic time. The house was perfect, well furnished and good ratio of bed to bathrooms.

Liz was great during the booking process, she always came back to me very quickly and went out of her way to get information on taxi's in the local area for us.

I'd thoroughly recommend both Songthrush and booking with Liz.

“Great venue, fab spa and pool. Everyone from 6-66 enjoyed their stay.”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Rented for a week over Easter, house was superb to get all the family together. The welcome pack was great and the location perfect as my husband had a car driving experience booked at Castle comb nearby. Kids loved zorbing and slack lining at near by water park, while older members of the party enjoyed quiet walks and looking out for wild life. Everyone loved the out door pool and those that tried spa came back suitably relaxed.

“Beautiful house in an idyllic location”

This was our third year at Songthrush, spending Easter together as a group of three families. Each year our stay just gets better. The location, right next to the Spa is ideal, especially for the children, who would spend most of the day in the pool if they could. The estate is beautifully laid out with lots of walks right on the doorstep and within easy reach of many pretty towns and local pubs.
The house itself is extremely well equipped and has everything you need for your time away. All five bedrooms are very well sized and the living area is ideal for family/friends get togethers.
We will continue to come back o Songthrush as it is the perfect getaway.

“Songthrush - a beautiful home from home”

I researched many properties in the Cotswold Water Park vicinity before booking Songthrush. They all looked fantastic and I found it hard to choose. However, I now have no doubt whatsoever that I made the right choice. Songthrush is a beautiful house. It accommodated 9 of us comfortably. The kitchen is well-equipped. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The family games supplied provided hours and hours of fun. We enjoyed family walks, hearty pub meals and lots and lots of restful family time. The visiting swans kept us entertained – ignore them and they tap on the window! The Spa is lovely and, as it is just a stone’s throw away, it’s as if it is part of the house! Liz (the owner) was as friendly and helpful in person as she was via email. In fact, we loved it so much that we have already booked another family holiday. Thank you, Liz.

“A really first class choice, heartily recommended.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We wanted to find somewhere to organise a family get together that we could all get to fairly easily from our dispersed locations. The house was flexible enough in its accommodation to enable people to come and go as they pleased, the train to London was only 1hr 15 mins away from Kemble. On the Sunday we had a family barbecue for 21 which was easily managed thanks to the large gas grill and sheltered decking (which thankfully we didn't need as the weather was glorious). The pool was a treat and directly opposite. Lower Mills Estate is very popular but never seemed busy, it is worth exploring the area and definitely worth swimming in one of the many lakes, even if it was unclear where you could do this. I think the philosophy of this special place is to allow people to explore, have fun and not set too many rules. A great successful holiday and one which we will treasure. Thank you Liz.
