We had never been to to Cotswolds when we booked the Lavender Cottage in Bourton-on-the-Water. We were immediately made to feel welcome be the initial contact from Hilary, the owner. She sent along lots of great information and answered all our questions about the cottage and the area. We fell in love with the cottage from the moment we stepped inside and after 3 days there, our 11 year old daughter wanted to skip the rest of our holiday and stay here. Everything about the place exceeded expectations from the beautiful garden outside our kitchen window to the cozy but spacious feel of the common room. Our daughter especially loved her top floor bedroom and she literally did not want to leave. It was a perfect 3 days in the Cotswolds with a great hike that starts right at our doorstep and lazy afternoons watching our daughter walk up and down the Windrush River through town. We will most definitely be back when next we visit the Cotswolds.
Lavender Cottage is perfectly located in Bourton on the Water, very close to the river and a short walk to all the local attractions and into town. It is a super cute historic property and was nicely sized for a family of 4. Hilary went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay, including a special gift for our twin boys who had just turned 4 before our trip and a couple of very thoughtful food items. The cottage has plenty to keep the family entertained, books, games, coloring, DVDs and everything you need to cook or wash. Hilary is an amazing host, very responsive and helpful, even stepping in to sit for our boys so that I could spend a little quality time with my hubby. A lovely holiday we will remember for a long time, thank you.
My husband and I stayed at Lavender Cottage for approximately 9 days and it is nestled in a very convenient location, provides easy access to shops and restaurants, has all of the amenities you could ask for, and Hilary is so helpful. Her goal was to make our stay at this quaint cottage as relaxing and stress-free as possible. I would certainly recommend this cottage for those looking to stay in Bourton-on-the-Water or for those looking for a hub to explore the Cotswolds. The cottage is in the most idyllic English village, the locals were very friendly, and the cottage itself is clean and comfortable. Hilary provides many resources to access different local resources, provides a cabinet of books to research your local interests, has binders that provide directions to the different attractions.... I found her attention to detail impressive. Not only would I return to this cottage, but I would recommend it to friends and family without any hesitation.
