“A little piece of history with all mod cons”

I stayed at Allerton Cottage with my husband and toddler. The house is beautiful with low beams and wooden floors. It is tastefully and comfortably furnished and there are some lovely touches like Portmeirion crockery and good toiletries. The owners also left us some handy provisions like milk, tea, coffee, dishwasher tabs and washing up liquid. Although entering the house is like stepping back in time, it also has enough modern touches to make your stay a relaxing one eg dishwasher, washing machine, DVD player. People with kids will be glad of the stairgate, travel cot and high chair but should be aware that the garden is not enclosed and that there is no light over the very steep, dark staircase which leads up to the twin bedroom at the top of the house. The location on Bourton High Street is perfect for town and it's a great base for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds by car.

“Excellent cottage full of charm in fab location.”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. Great location in centre of village, Very clean and lovely welcome gifts from owner. The driveway to the rear parking area was very narrow, only just got our Astra through the gap so be aware. The church is directly behind the cottage and the bells chime every 15 minutes day and night. Not ideal if like me you are a light sleeper but the others in my group did'nt hear them at all. Cottage had every thing you could possibly need. Had a great stay.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We booked Allerton Cottage for a week over Christmas and it was absolutely perfect in every way. We arrived to find a host of complimentary goodies provided by the owner, including champagne, chocolates, biscuits, milk, tea and coffee. Every attention has been paid to little details: there are candles and soft lighting throughout, lovely throws for cosying in front of the log fire, a selection of umbrellas in the hallstand, plenty of books and games, DVD movies, a great selection of CDs....the list is endless.

The cottage is spotless, the bedlinen immaculate and the towels are huge, plentiful, soft and fluffy. The master bedroom is so romantic and the upstairs twin bedroom is an absolute delight.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay here and have no hesitation in recommending Allerton Cottage.
