“Wonderful stay again in this lovely cottage”
Reviewed December 13, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Super cottage in the perfect spot. Just out of the hustle and bustle but only a short walk along the river to the villager centre. We love it here and have been many times. Thank you Bette and Dawn xxx

“Charming cottage”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife, daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful and cosy cottage. Had everything we needed to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. BotW is so idyllic and the cottage location could not be better to make the most of the village. Parked the car when we arrived and didn't need it all week. Bliss.

We have stayed at quite a few of the holiday lets in BotW over the years and all have been excellent. I would have to say Wells Cottage is the best we have stayed in for character and charm. It's so cosy and Dawn makes sure it is of the highest quality .

I would highly recommend this cottage. It is just beautiful.

“A dream come true”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Thank you Bette & Dawn for making Doreen's dream come true. Although we originally come from the U K and now live in New Zealand its always been one of her dreams to stay in a cute cottage which Well Cottage is. We chose so well with everything the cottage had offer as well as its ideal location. The village only 200 yards away offers everything and we had a lovely meal at Rose Tree Restaurant . We must not forget the fresh bread and homemade marmalade left for us which was very welcoming and it was a pleasure to meet you both. Thankyou both.

If you've ever dreamed of a fairy tale cottage in a fairy tale village, yet with (you should pardon the expression) modern amenities and comforts, Well Cottage is for you. The website photos are accurate - and the surrounding Cotswold landscape with its towns and villages make living here just picture perfect.

Owner Bette Roberts and her Manager Daughter, Dawn Mann, are incredible human beings: delightful company, interesting and interested in everyone, responsive to the slightest need yet considerate of privacy.

Spent a month being part of Bourton-on-the-Water; saying 'good morning' to the Windrush River ducks, grabbing a cuppa then scarfing down several fresh scones hot from the ovens at the Bakery on the Water, grabbing early day provisions at Londis, then coming home to "My" house to snuggle in and plan the day.. After more than 45 years of managing policy programs for government, raising a family, garnering two graduate degrees and - somehow - life friendships, this is my childhood dream come true.

You just GOT to try this!

“Things you dream of”

people found this review helpful

we have just had the greatest pleasure of staying at Well Cottage for a very warm week in July. Everything was above excellent, the cottage is amazing, maintained to the highest standard, very comfortable furnishings, exceptional bed linens (I've been online shopping and ordered myself the same for home). If you dream about living in a quaint chocolate box cottage then I suggest here 100%.
The cottage is located just off the main street, but tucked away in a quiet little backwater.
We had the great pleasure of meeting the owners and what lovely people they are.
Everyone was friendly and I would recommend this holiday to anyone

Thank you Dawn and Bette

Had the pleasure of staying in Well Cottage for 1week. Thank you Dawn and Bette for fresh bread /home made jam. Cottage was immaculate and had everything that we needed, including good Wifi, great shower and washing machine. It was conveniently located one street back from Windrush river.. B-O -W is very popular with tourists, especially on weekends! Travelled to many other pretty villages: Upper and Lower Slaughter; Bibury; Stanton( serene and very pretty); Chipping Campden(gorgeous thatched cottages) ; Stow on the Wold, Winchcombe, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Broadway. Took train from Moreton in Marsh to Oxford..great day. Drove to park n drive in Landsdown - bus To Bath-a must see!
Love, love love the Cotswolds! Would highly recommend Well Cottage.
