Bourton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds, England
Tilly's Cottage is a two-bedroom Cotswold-stone cottage located on a quiet back street. It's in an ideal location for couples who want a quiet haven, but also benefits from being just a stone's throw from the centre of the village and all its facilities. The cottage has all the mod cons including a modern kitchen with a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. As well as FreeSat TV and a DVD player, there is also free WiFi. The cottage is centrally heated but there is also a cosy log burner in the living room so you can curl up in front of a fire.

We welcome dogs (as long as they are house trained!) and the second bedroom is ideal for children. Parking for two cars is available at the rear of the property. And you can easily walk to the centre of the village within a couple of minutes.

Having said this, it is also very peaceful with little or no noise (except the birds twittering happily) Car parking is spacious and tucked away behind the cottage. The cottage does...
