“Excellent cottage full of charm in fab location.”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. Great location in centre of village, Very clean and lovely welcome gifts from owner. The driveway to the rear parking area was very narrow, only just got our Astra through the gap so be aware. The church is directly behind the cottage and the bells chime every 15 minutes day and night. Not ideal if like me you are a light sleeper but the others in my group did'nt hear them at all. Cottage had every thing you could possibly need. Had a great stay.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We booked Allerton Cottage for a week over Christmas and it was absolutely perfect in every way. We arrived to find a host of complimentary goodies provided by the owner, including champagne, chocolates, biscuits, milk, tea and coffee. Every attention has been paid to little details: there are candles and soft lighting throughout, lovely throws for cosying in front of the log fire, a selection of umbrellas in the hallstand, plenty of books and games, DVD movies, a great selection of CDs....the list is endless.

The cottage is spotless, the bedlinen immaculate and the towels are huge, plentiful, soft and fluffy. The master bedroom is so romantic and the upstairs twin bedroom is an absolute delight.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay here and have no hesitation in recommending Allerton Cottage.

“A most beautiful, original cottage in the heart of Bourton on the Water”
Reviewed August 7, 2012 for a stay in April 2012
1
person found this review helpful

What a wonderful time we had in the Cotswolds celebrating my partner's 50th birthday, and in particular staying at 'Allerton Cottage'. We fell in love with Bourton On The Water and the surrounding area and we couldn’t have asked for a better location to have stayed in than this cottage, right in the heart of this lovely picture-postcard town.

From the original features to the luxurious décor within the cottage, the owner has truly thought of everything to ensure that all visitors feel comfortable from the minute we arrive. Every eventuality is catered for, from condiments and beverages, to tea towels and washing up liquid, through to a childs stairgate for families staying.

Allerton Cottage has to be one of the most delightful cottages we have ever rented on holiday - it's a REAL cottage for a start - and we will definitely return!

Liked best: It is a 'real' cottage with original features, yet modern facilities - and centrally located.
Liked least: I honestly, hand on heart, can not fault the cottage - it was perfect!
