Inviting Big Cottage, near Cotswold Water Park (HOWE8MC)

Number 8 Howell's Mere is simply amazing - a stunning barn with a unique design and style that makes it one of our favourite properties at the Cotswold Water Park. Situated right on the edge of the Howell's Mere lake it has peaceful views across the water towards other contemporary properties - all very calm and quiet - in fact we feel it has a Scandinavian style and feel! Internally the barn is presented in an uncluttered, modern style that is both cool and dramatic creating an attractive and appealing feel to this beautiful corner of the Cotswolds. From the open plan living area, which is valuted, you have access to a good sized decked area that is on top of the water with nothing but the odd quack of a duck or moorhen to break the silence. As you can tell we love this property and feel confident you will too. If you can find this property at a better price elsewhere, tell us and we'll beat it!

LocationSouth West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
