“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Absolutely loved our 2 night stay at Cornerstone. Beautiful, well equipped cottage in a stunning location. We spent time in the spa, indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and steam room. Beautiful area to walk/run/cycle around.
We look forward to returning again soon. Excellent communication before , during and after our stay and we were met with a warm welcome of goodies.

“A fantastic base with a warm welcome on an amazing site”

Superb accommodation in an idyllic location, instantly transports you into a world of relaxation.
A well thought out and welcoming cottage in quiet surroundings with almost everything you could want provided for you in a well stocked kitchen.
Fantastic communication from the caring owners who did everything they could to ensure we had a smooth stay, even providing some lovely gifts for us for our stay.
Cosy beds with great pillows and duvets and a fully stocked kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer. TV/DVD and wifi was also most welcomed.
A wonderful spa which the kids loved, including the outdoor heated pool. Although towels provided in the cottage, you can either hire towels in the spa for £2 or bring your own, also need a £1 for the lockers.
In terms of location, it's worth knowing that it's in Mill Village and the best way to approach it is from the exit road past the shop before the gates to the road.

“A relaxing catch-up with friends”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

After an extensive search for a Cotswold based location to catch up with a group of friends, we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Firstly Cornerstone is a cosy and quaint cottage, big enough to fit 7 grown adults comfortably, and was the best priced find after many weeks of searching. It is set within the grounds of the beautiful Lower Mill estate, a secluded and extremely peaceful retreat in the Cotswolds, with access to most activities imaginable on the lakes and within the Gloucestershire region. When booking, Tim and Vanessa could not have been more helpful and were very accessible by email. We all have a wonderfully relaxing short break and would definitely like to go back!

A group of 8 of us visited Cornerstone cottage between 9th - 11th May and we had a fantastic stay. The cottage and surroundings are beautiful. The cottage itself is perfectly clean and very well stocked. We made full use of the onsite spa facilities, including a dip in the (freezing!) eco pool.

Many thanks Vanessa and Tim for a lovely stay and easy pleasant transaction.

We hope to visit again.

“Christmas Cottage”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 for a stay in December 2013
1
person found this review helpful

For several years, our group of friends has gone to lower mill estate to celebrate pre christmas. It is a lovely estate with a great pub in walking distance and all cottages are of a high standard with lovely open fire and truly Christmassy feel.
However, there were several elements that made Corner Stone stand out from the previous cottages we have stayed in: there on our arrival was a christmas tree, welcome chocolates and coffee and the best bit, a bottle of fizz in the fridge!
The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and there were many books and games to entertain our children.
On our second evening the owner sent a text just to check we were having a nice time which was a really lovely personal touch!
Finally, my daughter left her DS and the owners found it and kindly posted it back.
All in all from start to finish, staying at Cornerstone was a lovely experience. We will definitely be returning for Christmas Cottage next year!
