“Beautiful characterful country cottage”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have just returned from a weekend in Bourton to meet up with friends and celebrate my 40th. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous; plenty of room for everybody, clean and with a well stocked kitchen. We would definitely consider returning in the future.

“Excellent visit”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We visited Robin's Nest for a 30th birthday celebration during February 13. The cottage is very pretty and we were impressed with the interiors where it was much better than what we originally anticipated. The cottage has 5 double bedrooms which were all spacious and due to the layout of the rooms everyone could have their own privacy. The dining room is quite a nice focal point in the centre of the house and the lounge is very cosy especially with the fire and the numerous board games to entertain us. The beds are extremely comfortable and we all slept well whilst we were there! One of the main positives of this cottage is the location. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the cottage to the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water which has a variety of restaurants. I would recommend this cottage to those looking for a relaxing break in the Cotswolds and for people of all ages.

“Excellent Location, lovely cottage...perfect in every way.”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I can't rate this place highly enough. We needed a place to stay for a family get-together and this seemed to tick all the boxes. It was a short walk from the pretty village of Bourton-on-the-Water and less than a minute walk from a cosy pub. The cottage is in a quiet loaction and is set back from the road, I can't fault it. Inside, it feels like a country cottage but seems huge and has loads of lovely features.

It was nice that the owner offered a discount for smaller groups. (There were 6 of us)

Overall, if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Cotswolds then don't hesitate to book this place.
