We had a 3 night stay at Larks Rise, greeted on arrival with tea and biscuits (which was nice) then Barbara kindly upgraded us to Larks wing, a very nice annex. Breakfast was a friendly affair served by Bill and Barbara food was good with plenty of tea and lots of chatting. we wanted for nothing during our stay. Top... More

The Larks Rise Wing was all you need for a comfortable and quite stay in Cotswold. Barbara and Bill were so kind and welcoming and the location is just perfect to explore all the quaint villages either on foot or by walking. The apartment is furnished tastefully and to a high standard. It's a little hidden gem where you can... More

Barbara greeted us upon arrival with probably the warmest and most genuine welcome we have ever had. The room and bath room were beautiful and spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful extras included. Bill and Barbara were so warm and friendly they left us in peace to come and go as we pleased but were always there if we needed... More

We stayed at Lark's Rise for 2 nights near the end of April 2015. The hosts, Bill and Barbara are outstanding. Their friendliness and warmth and obvious enjoyment of what they do shines through. Barbara's tips on where to eat in Bourton and where to walk for novices like us made our stay. Yes, you can argue that the Brookes... More

Our latest visit to Larks Rise was again a most enjoyable one with Bill and Barbara looking after us so well. The standards they set themselves and which we have come to realise is the norm for them are of such a high level that we can only recommend anyone to have confidence in choosing Larks Rise. We read the... More

I pride myself in being fair minded and do not complain unduly. But I feel I would be doing an injustice to those considering Lark Rise if I didnt give this feedback...... Having done my research, belatedly, this is definitely not the best in terms of location for Bourton and nor, I imagine, in terms of customer service.... It is... More

Barbara B, Owner at Larks Rise, responded to this review

It is many years since we have experienced a review of this nature, which says more about the Reviewer than it ever will about Larks Rise. It not only misrepresents the actual exchange that took place but has a clear agenda - to damage our business. We welcome over 500 people a year to Larks Rise, and more than 30... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Larks Rise for a weekend in March. We stayed in the Mungo Park room which was spacious and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The en suite bathroom was modern and clean. Bill and Barbara made us both feel so welcome and made a lovely fresh breakfast for us in... More

We have just enjoyed a long weekend break, meeting up with friends. We was welcomed in by Barbara and quickly had a nice cup of tea and coffee in our hands. Barbara then told us all about the B and B, and we we're shown to our room, a lovely big bed with a really nice bathroom across the hall.... More

We had a lovely long weekend away (Sunday - Tuesday) staying with Barbara and Bill. Our room was lovely, it had everything we needed and more. Barbara and Bill were very welcoming, giving us great restaurant recomendations and information on day trips. Larks Rise is just a short walk into town and torches are provided at night! It made an... More
