“Beautiful cottage.”
Reviewed 19 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A beautiful cottage. Spotlessly clean and very cosy. All modern conveniences but retaining a very old world charm.The owners have thought of everything possible to make your stay very comfortable. There was a welcome pack of groceries for us adults and even a welcome surprise for our 5 year old son which he loved. 5 minutes walk to everything so ideally placed. We would definitely stay again when we come back to the area. Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage.

“Perfect Cotswold Getaway”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just returned from Lavender Cottage after a lovely short break. The cottage is perfect, with everything you could possibly wish for provided. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable, cozy and so well located in a quiet and peaceful setting around a small village green.

Bourton on the Water itself is a quaint and picturesque Cotswold town with many shops, cafes and pubs to explore, all just a couple of minutes walk from the relaxing haven of Lavender Cottage.

Hilary and Alistair were extremely friendly and helpful and the welcome goodies they left for us, including wine, bread, muesli, milk, fruit juice and biscuits were very generous and greatly appreciated!

We loved everything about our stay and can thoroughly recommend Lavender Cottage. We hope to make a return visit very soon!

“Outstanding cottage”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Some friends and I stayed in this outstanding cottage over the weekend, which is very close to the centre of Bourton, for a wedding close by. Both Hilary and Alistair looked after us brilliantly by showing where the best spots were to eat but more importantly stocking the house with everything we needed! When I opened the fridge I had a wow moment! It is also well dressed, clean and reall comfortable. I cannot wait to go again and would happily recommend it to anyone. Thanks again Hilary and Alistair and hope you enjoyed your holiday! :D

I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I was happy to book your wedding taxis for you & to get the food supplies that you asked for to cater for your late-night snacks after the wedding. I'm sure you also appreciated the Autumn sunshine that I arranged!

“What a nice stay!”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

My family and I spent here a week during the Christmas holidays. As many other visitors already mentioned, the cottage is a little gem! Right in the center if Bourton it has all the comfort you need while travelling. Hilary is a very nice lady and, as others already said, welcomes you with flowers on the table and all the items you need for your breakfast! We even found wine and a bottle of prosecco!! Since it was Christmas time, there was a cute Christmas tree in the corner of the living room.. These details really make the difference!
