Location could not be better, only a minutes walk to the river and village. Lots of walks and central location to visit other villages in the Cotswolds. The cottage had everything we needed and more. Hilary went out of her way to leave all the things we would need and the fridge was packed with goodies. Also a lovely garden with tables and chairs. If you are looking for an old but well maintained cottage in the Cotswolds then this is the place to go.
We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Lavender cottage. Can't really find enough nice things to say! There is everything you need for a very comfortable stay and even left a gift for our baby daughter! Excellent location 5 mins walk from the centre. The cottage was spotlessly clean and there was lots of useful information for things to see and do in the area. Would definitely recommend and if you have a baby there is all the equipment you need. Thank you for a lovely stay.
We were looking for the ideal small English village experience. We found it at Lavender Cottage and Bourton-on-the-Water. The cottage has it all: every appliance, great heat, comfy couches and excellent Wi-Fi. And very quiet!! It is maybe 50 yards from High street but we never heard a thing. And 1-2 minute walk to any central store or restaurant. Just too perfect. Special thanks to Hillary and Alistair for convincing me to rent a car to better see all the sites.As a Yank the first time driving on the CORRECT side, it was a lot easier than I thought and we covered a lot more of the area. Thank you both!!
As per the review, perfect. Location was ideal and the cottage is stunning. Hilary and Alistair put so much care and love into making it home from home.
How do I begin? There were so many great aspects of staying here that my review could be pages long. The cottage is in a very convenient location relative to Bourton; a 90 second walk and you're in the middle of town. This stunning little cottage is a refuge from the tourist crowds and is in a quiet location.
It had everything for a comfortable stay, including a fully fitted kitchen with washing machine/dryer, dining table, an electric fire, comfortable couches, and many sources of entertainment such as books, board games, TV and DVDs. The wifi was the fastest we have encountered in any place that we have stayed.
The bathroom was large and nicely appointed. Hot water was always plentiful.
The beds in both bedrooms were extremely comfortable.
What made Lavender cottage so welcoming was that the hosts had provided us with provisions including milk, wine, beer, bread, tea bags, and jam. This was a really nice touch.
Provided was a comprehensive folder which held details on everything relating to the cottage and to the surrounding area. We found this most helpful.
The entire cottage was immaculately clean.
If visiting The Cotswolds again, we would not hesitate to book Lavender Cottage.
Amazing cottage in a quiet location. Within walking distance of the pretty high street but far enough away to retreat for a relax in the garden, which catches the sun in the afternoon. The owners have catered for all needs and kindly left bread and milk meaning we could have a cuppa on arrival. The cottage was clean and washing up stuff provided (other cottages I've visited have not provided equipment). Adequate number of pots/pans etc for the number of guest to allow for self catering. This is the second time we have stayed here and will again in the future.
Finally getting to write a review, we stayed here for a week with our two kids in July and it was honestly the nicest holiday we have ever had! We absolutely loved the cottage it was like a home away from home. The location was perfect and the house itself was beautiful. The views from each bedroom as you can see in the pictures were gorgeous too! Hilary and Alistair went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed! Can't wait to come back again.
