Interaction with guests
Mum and I live locally and are on hand should you require assistance with anything and our contact numbers are located in the information booklet inside the cottage. The key is conveniently located in the Lock Box outside the cottage so no need to worry about having to pick it up or drop it off anywhere. There are so many wonderful places to visit and things to do both locally and within a short distance by car or bus and we will leave you with many leaflets and up to date local brochures for you to have a look at when you arrive. There is also a Tourist Information Centre conveniently located within a 5 min walk from the cottage.

We were so very pleased that we chose Well Cottage as we found it to be charming and yet extremely comfortable. It could not be more picturesque. The location was another plus as it was a two minute walk to the town center. I definitely will stay here again if I'm lucky enough to return to Bourton on the Water!

What a delight to stay in Well Cottage. Cosy, perfect position, 2minute walk to numerous tea rooms and pubs. Gorgeous village surrounded by so many things to see. Delightful owner Dawn so helpful and easy to contact if needed. Well Cottage has been the highlight of our 3month uk wandering.
