Lake View

With beautiful views over the lake and Estate, Lake View is a spacious loft-style apartment separate from the Mill and independently assessed as 5* Gold by Visit England. Stylishly decorated in calm and neutral shades and with fine furnishings it is the perfect setting for a romantic escape. An extra sumptuous King-size bed, soft Egyptian cotton linen, a feature bathroom, private garden and all the latest ‘must-have’ gadgets such as a Bose CD & DVD, Internet TV and Sonos sound system make this a real treat.

The open-plan living space with its large sofa, lake views and honesty bar induces relaxation. Dinner can be enjoyed at the table for two, perhaps served on our pretty Emma Bridgewater crockery and prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen which comes complete with Dualit toaster and kettle, dishwasher, washing machine, Tassimo coffee maker, cooker and fridge freezer. Or why not eat al-fresco; Lakeview has its own private BBQ and outdoor dining area complete with wooden sun beds and table for you to enjoy.

Lakeview’s bathroom is really rather special. There is a whirlpool bath (big enough for two), multifunction shower, 20" Aqua-vision bathroom HD LCD TV, bluetooth speakers built into the bath, mood lighting, heated victorian towel rail with beautiful luxury fluffy towels and underfloor heating. Please note the bathroom is on a different level to the accommdation.

Our king-size extra comfy bed with deliciously soft Egyptian cotton sheets sometimes makes it quite tricky to get up in the morning! Make it an early night and enjoy star gazing with our Galaxy Dreamer Star light machine, its truly amazing! For those technology minded you can control the mood lighting for the lounge and bedroom through the IPad (or just push a button if your not!).
