“"PERFECT"”

This is our second stay at The Cottage and has become a real home from home for us. It spotlessly clean there is every appliance you could wish for. The living area is very comfortable with a nice dining area. The kitchen is extremely well equipped so much so my wife wants one just like it. Bedrooms are very well furnished with very comfortable beds. Nicely fitted out toilet and bathroom on the first floor and toilet on the ground floor. I can honestly say we can't find any negatives with the cottage and to many positives to list. Its location is perfect for the village and parking directly outside the front door. In our opinion there is no better cottage or location in Bourton On The Water. Over the last few years we have had holidays in several villages in the Cotswolds and never been disappointed with any location but we have not stayed anywhere that comes close to The Cottage and we shall certainly be coming back for the foreseeable future. As I said earlier this is our second stay I should add we have already booked our third and fourth. Finally the owners. This year we stayed as part of my 60th Birthday on arrival there was a lovely Welcome/Birthday note from Diane and Robert with a box of chocolates and a bottle of champagne in the fridge, how good is that, they are like their cottage "PERFECT".

“Wonderful cottage in a fabulous location!”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our second stay at The Cottage and still as wonderful as before. Everything you could possibly need in a wonderful central location. Once you've stayed here you won't want to stay anywhere else in Bourton - which was exactly the reason we came back to it!
The cottage is immaculate, the children were able to pop out by themselves to feed the ducks (it's that close to the river!) and it now also has the added bonus of Wifi.
We can't wait to come back again!

“Fantastic place to stay in an ideal location”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The cottage was spotless when we arrived with truffles and shortbread on arrival.

The accommodation was well presented an ideal base for a group who were here for the Cheltenham Festival. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom was perfect for a group of our size.

Would definitely recommend!

Thanks Diane for a great stay

“Fantastic Valentines Stay...”
Reviewed 17 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My partner and I had a fantastic valentines stay at this cottage. It is very cosy and instantly feels like home. Very clean and well equipped, it has everything you require for your stay including wifi. Great location, within a stones throw of the river and local amenities. We will certainly be coming back!
Special thanks to Diane who went the extra mile to make our stay extra special.

The cottage was home from home - really well equipped, clean, all mod cons and very comfortable beds. Ideally located for exploring this beautiful part of the country. We will definitely return and would highly recommend it.

“Just Gets Better!”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our third visit and The Cottage just gets better. This time we were pleased to have WiFi. The position is one of the best in the village. Lots of eating places but the Cottage is more than well equipped for self catering.
We are coming back in May (for our fourth visit, which says it all!) - can't wait!
