“Excellent accommodation, a matter of paces from village centre”
Reviewed March 27, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a very enjoyable 6 night stay. The cottage is immaculate and very well set up for comfortable self catering. Everything has been well considered and provided for even down to very generous welcome items. Would definitely recommend to friends and family visiting the area and no hesitation in providing this positive review.

“Beautiful Pampered Escape!”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had three nights at a Lavender Cottage with our two kids and were absolutely thrilled with the quality and attention to detail the owners have put into making this the perfect place from which to explore the area. The location could not be more idyllic and the accommodation complete and perfect. Beautiful.

“Beautiful quaint cottage”

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic time here in Bourton, the cottage was exactly as described and quaint. We felt like we were in a different world. The house was clean and everything worked perfectly.
We really appreciated the food essentials provided. Hilary gave use great directions, local info and how to access really early and also reminders.
The house is so close to a couple of nice pubs and restaurants too.
We couldn't have asked for more. A perfect rental.

“Beautiful Cottage, Gret Location”
Reviewed March 16, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The cottage is absolutely lovely and it's location couldn't be better for the centre of Bourton (about 45 seconds walk to all the action!) We were lucky enough to meet the owner, due to being early arriving, and she was lovely too! The cottage is well equipped both in terms of the kitchen but also in terms of books, games and dvds (a few more action flicks for the boys though please lol) We were amazed to arrive to a bottle of wine in the fridge as well as all the basics we might need like bread and milk etc...even better the owner left a great book for our 2 year old! Thanks for the stay and we will definitely return in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :0)

Thanks for your comments. There are dozens of DVDs to choose from, but I obviously haven't got the mix quite right, haha. You'll be pleased to hear that we've had an extra shelf and more DVDs ready for some time, and are just waiting for a free slot to fit it. You'll be well catered for next time. I'm pleased that you appreciate everything that we provide for our guests.

“Lovely Lavender Cottage”
Reviewed March 7, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What a lovely cosy cottage, in a lovely location, within a minute's walk of the river and high street that is, Bourton on the water. The cottage is cosy and warm, and all our stresses n strains just ebbed away upon our arrival. Lavender Cottage is truly lovely, we can't say a bad thing about anything to be honest. Even little touches like tea, milk and a bottle of wine just added to our relaxing arrival.
Would we stay at Lavender Cottage again????
It's a no brainer, of course we would.
It's a haven of relaxation.
Thank you Hilary for your help and letting us stay in your wonderful cottage.

“A cosy 4 day trip in lovely Bourton-on-the-Water!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My boyfriend and I wanted a cosy quiet get away for a long weekend, and we got it. Lavender cottage is spotless, well laid out, and extremely comfortable. It is beautifully located just off the main street with a lovely river, plenty of great tea spots, pubs and shops. Hilary & Alistair were extremely prompt in their responses, and made sure we had everything we needed in the cottage for our stay. We loved it, and we would definitely come back here if the opportunity arose.
