St Mary's Cottage is a truly exceptional property, set in its own private garden at the end of a quiet lane in the heart of Lower Slaughter, widely regarded as one of England's most beautiful villages. The cottage is set back from Copse Hill Road, which was named as the most romantic street in Britain in a 2011 online poll. Despite its tranquil setting, the cottage benefits from having a beautiful country inn and two of the Cotswolds finest restaurants a short stroll away, as well as being ideally placed for exploring the wider Cotswold r...

This is the third time that a group of us have stayed in St. Mary's Cottage. The cottage feels quite like home to us now. It's very comfortable, clean and has wonderful views of traditional Cotswolds village. The cottage is ideally situated for walks, a pub/ restaurant and a manor house for afternoon teas, a large variety of gins or...

St. Mary's Cottage is extremely well presented and is at the centre of what is,perhaps, the most iconic Cotswold village - Lower Slaughter. It is stylish, spacious, with every modern convenience yet set in a timeless Cotswold environment. It would be perfect at anytime but four autumn break it was heaven!

The cottage was an ideal base for us for the weekend of our daughter's wedding in nearby Stow-on-the-Wold. We particularly liked the large kitchen which was very well equipped with everything we needed. The cottage is beautifully furnished and the small garden is delightful. We would love to return on a more relaxing occasion and explore the village a bit...

About the neighbourhood
The Slaughters

Just over a mile from Bourton-on-the-Water are the twin villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter. The name comes from old English 'Slohtre', which has nothing to do with killing things and means, simply, 'Muddy place'. Today's villages are far from muddy places, in contrast they are the epitome of idyllic, civilised Cotswold charm. Straddling the banks of the River Eye, also known as Slaughter Brook, the two villages have remained virtually unchanged for more than a century. Lower Slaughter in particular is regarded as one of England's most beautiful villages and, in 2011, Copse Hill Road was named as the most romantic street in Britain in an online poll.


The village of Bourton-on-the-Water (or “Bourton”) is famous for its p...
