About Kasha Grimes
6 years’ experience as a holiday letting agent in the Cotswolds Independent business, working closely with private lodge owners Choice of circa 14 carefully selected high quality holiday lodges Kasha Grimes, Managing Director of Cotswolds Spa Holidays, has approximately 6 years’ experience of working in the Cotswold Water Park. Kasha has a close relationship with numerous lodge owners. This relationship is vital to the business as it ensures that she retains a family-like, yet professional, manner right to the core of the business and deeply cares for the value our product. All the properties are third party owned second homes, namely, that they are owned by private individuals generally for the benefit of their immediate family but are also let out through us to defray the costs of running & maintaining the properties and therefore are often furnished in an individual & personal way with no two properties fitted out the same. Guests return year on year & can enjoy a different experience each time & select a property that best fits the requirements of the guests they plan to bring along, old or young. Due to the eclectic mix of owners each property has its own lively charm and feels like an actual home, rather than a prescribed holiday environment put together by a corporate design team. We aim to offer stunning holiday homes to add to any occasion. After leaving recruitment, Kasha began her own agency business in 2011 setting up Cotswolds Spa Holidays with a portfolio of just 3 rental properties offering a boutique high end service for discerning guests. Surrounded by picturesque Cotswold villages, historic market towns and an area of lakes larger than the Norfolk broads, the stunning, natural landscape is tough competition for our fabulous lakeside holiday homes & a catchment of some 20 million potential guests within 2 hours by car. The area is renowned for its wildlife and the range of activities available. Similarly, for t

Superb Holiday Cottage
Our experience was faultless from booking to departure. This is an excellent property, equipped with everything you need and is set in a beautiful, tranquil location. We visited with family, friends and the dog, everyone loved the place with our friends booking to return twice later this year with their family !! We have also subsequently rebooked, the place is that good. I would honestly 100% recommend this holiday home to everyone. Your relaxation will start the minute you walk through the door.
The property it’s self was nice, whoever; we had ants on the side this was resolved when we spoke to maintenance and only other thing for us is the amount of bugs flying around.
Wow! Little piece of heaven. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
We highly recommend this company and property. From the initial enquiry to the follow up after our visit, communication was spot on. They answered all our questions promptly.
Upon arrival we were amazed by the entire lower mill estate. So clean and tidy.
Then we got to 48 Howells mere and all I can say is WOW! The house is amazing. Spotlessly clean and comfy and all our needs were met and more. Room for all and never felt squished in. We had a visit from a rep from the holiday company who was polite and informative.
Beautiful views with a lovely terrace to enjoy a cup of coffee on in the morning. It is so peaceful. The play area was enjoyed by our younger members of the party and we was able to enjoy a nice drink from the balihoo. The inclusive use of indoor and outdoor spa went down a treat for all of us.
Will definitely be back!!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful location
We had a fabulous stay at Howells Mere, everything was seamless from beginning to end. Communication with the property owner was excellent, prompt and comprehensive information was provided which made our stay easy. The house is well equipped and was clean. Would stay here again.
Beautiful pet friendly accommodation
We have stayed at the Lower Mill Estate many times since it first opened, having tried the majority of the different properties we have stayed the last few times at 48 Howells Mere. This property is extremely well maintained and is equipped with everything that you need. We have stayed there with family and friends, each occasion has been excellent. It is positioned in the quieter side of the LM Estate making your stay totally relaxing. I would 100% recommend this property to everyone.

The town of Cirencester (formerly named Corinium was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times) is home to the Corinium Museum, the Cirencester Abbey (the longest known Saxon church in England) and host to regular market days.

April 2008 - On-line magazine has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswold's is 2nd Place!
The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswold's region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.
Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic
Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswold's), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency
architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford-upon-Avon is just over 1 hour away.
