“a 'brilliant' home/cottage in a charming town”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A group of 11 of us (siblings and some spouses) members) stayed at the cottage for 5 days. It was delighful. The property is very well maintained and is charming. While we spent most of the time hiking in various of the Cotswolds region (which was also a delight), the time we spent at the cottage was truly enjoyable. The grounds are beautiful as well. The owners were very responsive and helpful when we were looking for information about the region and helpful in getting the payment to them- thank you David and Margaret. We would love to return some day.

“Immaculate cottage in a ideal location”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

Immaculate cottage in a ideal location within Bourton-on-the-Water. Dealing with the owners was excellent. All the amenities within the cottage were first rate and the conservatory was a perfect room for our group to chill out after our meal.
Would highly reccommend this cottage - if I had to give the cottage one very minor criticism (feedback from the ladies of the group) was that the kitchen was on the small size for a 6 bedroom cottage.
Look forward to booking this cottage again in the future

“Ideal high class property for group/family get together”
Reviewed February 28, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

A fantastic six bedroom property, ideally situated close to the centre of this beautiful village.
The dining room and conservatory are excellent spaces for social gatherings. Ground floor bedroom suite is ideal for those less mobile whilst the remaining five bedrooms on the first and second floors are spacious and well appointed.
Great attention to detail by the owners to ensure all needs are met - highly recommended!
The only area not deserving of five stars is the narrow gallery kitchen which can be quite restrictive if more than two people are busy preparing the food and drink for their guests!
Still gets 4+ though!
