About Paul or Madeleine Shearer
We have a young family and enjoy time away with them and sharing holidays with friends in a relaxed, but comfortable location. Comfy beds are essential in our holiday needs! Goose Nest is the only holiday home we own, and we strive to ensure that all guests have a relaxed and stress-free time at our house.
Paul or Madeleine Shearer purchased this House in 2008
Why Paul or Madeleine Shearer chose Somerford Keynes
We rented a house in Lower Mill Estate ourselves and fell in love with the place - walks around the lakes, children out playing and cycling and, of course, the superb spa treatments! It seemed like the ideal place to relax and unwind and yet only 90 minutes drive from London.
What makes this House unique
We have equipped the house to be a home from home both in terms of the kitchen and comfort. Nobody likes having to do washing up on holiday, so we have twice the number of cutlery and crockery so one set can be in the dishwasher as you move onto the next meal! Travelling with children can turn into a logistical challenge, so we have baby and toddler carriers, pushchair, cots, high chairs, bottle warmers, sterilizer and plenty of children's toys, books, DVDs and games so we can literally pack some clothes and go! We hope that guests feel they can do the same.

Excellent property in Beautiful location
The property feels like a genuine family home with masses of games, equipment and facilities for children. The Estate has a super pool and leisure centre. The surroundings are excelptional, with wildlife, walking (including the Thames path) and activities for children. Great.
Thank you for your lovely comments.
Lovely place on a lake
We had a great time staying at Goose Nest House. The house was well-equipped. Awesome lake views from the sitting room and two of the bedrooms. Canoeing and kayaking access right through the reeds in the back garden couldn't have been easier. Overall a great place to stay. Busier on the weekend, and super quiet during the week. Highly recommend. Would stay again.
Wonderful property, beautiful location
We booked this for my mothers 70th birthday weekend for 10 of us (7 adults and 3 young children). The owners were really helpful when booking and when we arrived responded to our questions in a matter of minutes. The property is in such a wonderful location in the Cotswold in a prime lake front position - the views are stunning. The property has everything you will need when visting with children and plenty of space to cook, relax and have fun. Having stayed in many rental properties i was impressed with the well stocked kitchen and the overall facilities. we will definitely return her again.
Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased that you had a good stay to celebrate a family special birthday.
Extremely enjoyable holiday.
Excellent accommodation well positioned over looking the lake. The property is well equipped with just about every implement you could need from furniture and appliances down to cleaning materials and toys for children.
Facilities on site are excellent 2 swimming pools sauna steam room and boats for hire to go on the lake. Highly recommend it and we would definitely go back.
Ideal spot for family break.
Thank you for your kind comments. We are so pleased that you had a lovely holiday with your family and hope we can welcome you back one day.

Wonderful location, perfect house
Amazing 4 nights break over new year at Goosenest. 6 adults, 4 children and a baby and everyone loved it.
The kitchen has every gadget and utensil you could possibly need which was a god send when cooking a roast for 11 on New Year’s Day!
Comfortable bedrooms, plenty of space for chilling out and views from the lounge window to die for.
On site facitlities were excellent. We even swam in the outdoor heated pool!
Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely family break and will almost certainly be back.
Thank you Natalie. We are so pleased you had a great time at New Year at our house. We try hard to make sure Goose Nest House is a luxury home away from home as we appreciate that when you go away you want to relax and enjoy time with friends and family and not be hunting for the garlic crusher!!
