Outside the property lacked tlc. The windows, decking and outside furniture were all dirty and had not been cleaned for weeks/months.
The internal space was modern and clean with wooden floors throughout the downstairs and light coloured, reasonably new carpets on the upper floors. Bathrooms were clean and modern. The light in the downstairs toilet did not work and despite a call and a visit from the agent was not fixed during our stay. The fan in the master bedroom en-suite was also inoperative, again reported but not fixed during our stay.
The house had a small grassed area which backed onto a beautiful view across a stream and the lake in the background. There was a steep slope through a thicket of brambles and nettles and so the back garden was not safe for unaccompanied small children. There was no warning of this in the booking or details from the agents despite the ages of 4 children being confirmed in the booking details.
The property is more than adequate for 4 adult couples but doubt it is entirely suitable for families, particularly if the children are at all adventurous!!!

Hello Paul, thank you for your review. We hope you had a great stay at Lower Mill Estate. The nature reserve at this time of year is especially active, therefore we ensure all our properties are on a programme for regular window and spider clearance. We will now look into additional cleans for this going forwards. As we are a lakeside location we advise children are accompanied at all times. We do have a number of properties that provide a glass balustrade around the decking so this may be more suitable for those with younger children. We do hope this hasn’t put you off returning and we would love to have you return to the estate. With this being said we would like to offer you a return discount if you booked again through Habitat Escapes.

Happy holidays

We enjoyed our stay at Tawny very much. The whole estate is a great place to stay with easy access to both tennis courts and swimming pools. Fabulous . The weather was wonderful which helped our enjoyment greatly. Just a couple of niggles - the top floor of the house was full of spiders - we felt it had not been cleaned recently. Also whilst there was lots of hanging space for clothes in the bedrooms, there were no drawers. Thus we had to live out of suitcases all week.
Will definitely return to the estate for future holidays.

We all had a wonderful time Christmas week at Tawny House. The property was perfect...spacious, light, lovely views and excellent kitchen equipment, which made cooking enjoyable. We used the pools, which our grandsons loved, the restaurant, which we all loved and the scenery was so peaceful and calming. We enjoyed walks and bike rides and loved the attractions in the local area. We will definitely come back!
