We stayed for the weekend with our friends to celebrate our joint 25th wedding anniversaries.(lovely flowers and card from Dawn the owner) Couldn't have picked a more romantic little cottage oozing all the chocolate box charm you could want. From slanted floors to low beams. Spent a good few hours in front of the log burning fire. Lovely quite location as no traffic passing through. Only downside is the numerous oriental tourists standing outside the lounge window taking photos of the cottage with it's well as the feature - still that's what you get for selecting the most prettiest cottage in the village !!!! (not really a problem) x would love to stay again but longer next time

“Just what we had hoped for”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We loved our stay in the Cotswolds. That includes our stay in Well Cottage. It was a perfect
Balance between quaint and comfortable. The ambiance of the century's old cottage with all
The comforts. We did several walks as the location was so good. There were many spots to eat out and shops for self catering if we wished. The land ladies were easy and pleasant to
Deal with. Everything was perfect. We would happily recommend it and would return ourselves

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We are a couple of French people with our daughter and we had wonderful holidays in Well Cottage. It is a very pleasant, comfortable, clean, quiet and cosy place to stay. It is decorated tastefully. Moreover, its situation is close to all the shops in the charming village of Bourton on the Water. We thank Jo, the housekeeper who was very helpful. We recommand this cottage for people who want to have holidays they will never forget.

“Perfect Cottage!!”
Reviewed May 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Cottage in prime location, 2 mins walk from restaurants and village. Cottage contained everything we needed. Cosy lounge, modern bathroom, very comfortable bed. Cannot fault the property at all. Off road parking a real bonus as parking in village difficult. Bettie and Dawn (owners) were really helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks for our wonderful stay, hopefully be back soon

“Perfect location within Bourton on the Water”
Reviewed February 24, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This period cottage (17th century) retains many features including low beamed ceilings and stone walls. A modern bath has been added, with a small but functional kitchen. The owners are excellent at responding to inquiries within a few minutes, and that helped ease any concerns. Just prior to our arrival, they experienced a problem with the boiler and gave us the choice of going to another accommodation (which they had arranged) or coming as planned and then seeing if they had been able to solve the issue. When we arrived, the boiler was in the midst of being replaced, and Bette was on hand to explain the situation to us. While it did take us a few extra hours before we could get in to the cottage, we did take the opportunity to travel around the village.

The lounge has a huge original fireplace with a wood stove added. We lit a fire one cold evening and it warmed up the cottage very well. It was a lovely way to spend an evening. What is nice about this particular period cottage is that it has windows on 3 sides in the lounge, which adds a lot of light.

The new boiler worked well, and there was always hot water and heat in the house. The bathroom is modern and very nicely done up, but as it is in an extension it remains rather cold and could use with a blind on the window for privacy.

The kitchen has all the amenities you need for a stay. Although the cottage can sleep five, there is only seating at the dining table and main living area for four people (this wasn't an issue for us, but families may want to consider it).

Bedrooms are a nice size and can sleep 5. Lovely, warm linens. A selection of different types of pillows would be nice as all were very hard as were the mattresses. If you have any difficulty walking, be aware that the bedroom floors are very uneven as is to be expected in a cottage of this type.

The best element of the cottage is its proximity to the village. It is a very short walk to the river and tea rooms, but enough off the main area to be quiet.

“Lovely quiet cottage!!”

The place was lovely, well looked after and very quiet. We had an amazing time in a one of the most peaceful and picturesque parts of the country and this was exactly what we were looking for!

The kitchen was small but well equipped and the bathroom was very clean with a good shower and we loved getting use out of the log fire. Bourton was very quiet while we were there and we found out the village can be quite seasonal and as a result a lot of the restaurants were closed during our stay. We were told that most placed open up in Feb so it may be worth checking before booking.

Overall this was a great getaway from the city and would be happy to recommend and are highly likely to revisit another time!
