“Lovely Comfortable Cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We've just returned from a lovely holiday in this cottage. It's in the perfect location for the village, being merely a few minutes walk. Everything was immaculately clean, with a lovely welcome pack waiting for us and our dog. Having the parking spaces is a great bonus as well. Would highly recommend staying here. It has everything you need for the perfect holiday.

“Beautiful cottage, perfectly situated and friendly owners”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Tilly's recently whilst attending a friends wedding. The cottage is very central but helpfully in a nice peaceful position just a road or two back from the river. The rooms were decorated with a vintage style and the cottage was very stylish and comfortable. Tillys was beautiful decorated and spotlessly clean. Upon arrival there was a welcome basket provided with wine and buscuits which was a lovely touch. There is a pretty fireplace and a peaceful garden. The property had parking as well which was helpful as parking can be difficult in the village. The owners are lovely and personable and clearly have poured a lot of love into tillys to make it as beautiful as it is. We shall be back for sure!

“Tilley's Cottage is a magical place to stay in a delightful Cotswolds village.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We couldn't have timed our arrival better, getting to Bourton-on-the-Water and checking into our cottage just in time to walk round the corner and catch sight of Father Christmas in his horse-drawn vehicle for the opening of a wonderful evening of Victorian fun. There were stalls, mulled wine, carols, choirs and the lighting of Bourton's Christmas tree, which stands full-square in the middle of the River Windrush whose banks we walked along, delighting in the tiny bridges which cross it and enjoying all the brightly lit shops, cafes and restaurants in this beautiful village.

Our cottage was unbelievably cosy and welcoming, with tasteful Christmas decorations and a huge wood-burning stove. The owners have thought of everything possible to make staying there a great experience - even down to providing pet blankets and dog treats! We found the Cotswolds in general very dog-friendly and even though we didn't have our pooches with us, enjoyed seeing other people being able to take theirs into cafes with no restrictions.

The Motor Museum has to be seen to be believed, and one afteroon's visit isn't enough to see and marvel at the hundreds of exhibits on offer, from vintage caravans with leaded windows, the interiors of the vans displaying on their small tables precious Clarice Cliff pottery sitting on beautiful hand-embroidered tablecloths, to hundreds of enamel advertising signs. It's very true that you don't realise what you'll miss until it's gone, and this museum pays testament to a golden age of motoring which can't ever return.

“Fantastic accommodation !”

The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything we needed. A complete home from home, the log burner was a great added extra which made the cottage feel even more homely a complete tranquil haven. Even our two dogs were made to feel welcome with dog treats, bowls and towels all ready for them. The location is ideal as so close to the village centre and very well situated for exploring the Cotsworlds. We can't wait to return!

“Best Cottage by far in the cotswolds, clean tidy and well equiped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We have stayed in a few cottages, but this takes the biscuit, (excuse pun as the very welcome pack on arrival had some biscuits in it thanks Jo) yes a welcome pack, and everything you needed and more in case of emegency, well thought of by owners, quiet spot but near enough to enjoy Bourton and all its ammenities, good resturants,pubs and shops in a short walk, we always enjoy it in this part of England, but even more when you have a cosy home like Tillys Cottage, close to all walks and stately homes and gardens, We Thank you Jo and Ian for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage, we will be back

“2nd stay and even better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

This was our second stay at Tilly's (see my first review May 2011) and, if anything, it was even better than last year. This was because we knew where everything was and felt so at home there. Also, a couple of suggestions that we made last year (i.e. hooks on back of bedroom doors) had been actioned, so that was great.
The cottage was just as clean, fresh and comfortable as last year with nice 'welcome items' as a little treat. There's everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and toiletries in the bathroom if you've forgotten anything.
Once again we were thrilled with the location - so convenient to walk to the village yet set back in a quiet little cul-de-sac. With the added advantage of it's own parking space, Tilly's suits us down to the ground. We have designated it our venue for our annual 'girl's retreat'.
Be sure to try The Pudding Club evening at Mickleham if you stay over a weekend - great fun!
Thanks once again, Jo!
