“super location on the estate”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My daughter organised a weekend stay at 43 Copse Mere as a birthday celebration for myself and family. Firstly I would like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and thought the place well equipped. As requested we completed a snagging list of things that needed attention in the villa, some things would have made our stay more pleasant like the broken racking in dushwasher and broken door on ice compartment and shelf inside on of fridge doors. As previous reviewer, we felt the furniture very tired. The mattress on upstairs bedroom was very stained and I had to turn it over, plus I am glad I took my memory foam mattress topper. I know that sometimes guests do not always bring things to owners attention, being an owner of a holiday property myself, but for the cost of the weekend, standards could have been better.
This is an honest opinion, it did not detract from our enjoyment. I will put that I recommend in the hope some of the repairs are addressed.

“Relaxing holiday on a beautiful estate”

We spent a lovely week on the Lower Mill Estate, Copse Mere Lodge 43 with my family and friends. There were 7 adults and 3 children and we fitted comfortably in the lodge. The lodge itself was pleasant but not as luxurious as hoped (The decor is tired, beds are hard, linen is cheap, few ants at the front door). The pictures are definitely better. It was well equipped and everything you needed was on hand. There were children’s toys and books which kept our children occupied throughout our stay. The pool was fabulous until the bank holiday arrived and then it was very busy with families. Whilst we could cope with this as a family with young children I expect it would be unpleasant for couples. We particularly liked cycling and running the 5km trail - although be warned the 5km trail finished at least 1km before you got back to the start of the trail. We were able to spot a family of badgers and saw plenty of wildlife down at the ponds. The children loved the treasure trail which was made easier on the bike. The walk would have been difficult for our small children. We made use of the free onsite tennis courts, parks and trampolines. The estate felt safe although can get a little busy traffic wise when the holiday season starts. All in all, a nice holiday and we would return to the estate but maybe choose an alternative lodge.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you had a lovely week and that your family enjoyed the fantastic facilities and wildlife on the estate. I'm also glad you found the lodge well-equipped and that the children made good use of all the toys and books.

On the other hand, I am sorry that you felt the lodge was not as luxurious as you expected. In May 2014 we had the entire house re-painted, re-carpeted and all the wooden floors and skirting boards replaced. The lodge is very popular with families so the paintwork sometimes takes a bashing and the hallway walls get scuffed from guests carrying bags through the house and up the stairs. In response to your comments we will go through the house this week and re-paint/re-touch where this has happened.

With regards to the mattresses, all the beds in the lodge have medium support mattresses which we think is the best option for our guests who have a range of preferences.

The bed linen, duvets, pillow and towels were all replaced in July 2014. In keeping with the ethos of the estate we buy bed linen made from 100% organic sustainable cotton. Organic cotton is grown using less water, fertilisers and pesticides, the fabric is not bleached and the farmers are paid a fair wage. However, the downside is the cotton is not as bright white (and feels slightly different) to non-organic cotton.

Regarding the ants at the front door, the lodge is on a nature resort so we do occasionally get unwelcome guests. We have put down some ant bait around the front door so this should stop any ants coming into the house.

“A wonderful place to completely relax; for both adults and children.”

I have stayed at Lower Mill on a number of occasions over the years. After trying many different holidays, we always come back to Lower Mill as I know, without doubt, we will have a wonderful time. The house is lovely, in a great location on Lower Mill, just minutes from the spa and pool, which works for both me and my daughter. The open plan kitchen/reception works particularly well when we have stayed with friends, it's big enough for a couple of families with space for the kids to enjoy themselves, whilst the adults unwind over a glass or two of wine.... It's also a great place to go with friends - and no children - a real find to have somewhere which works with, or without children. I will definitely be going back!

Liked best: I love that the kids can play outside unsupervised, a particular treat as we live in London.
Liked least: It's a shame there isn't an area in the spa to have a drink - bar/cafe.
