Cottage
Tilly's Cottage is a two-bedroom Cotswold-stone cottage located on a quiet back street. It's in an ideal location for couples who want a quiet haven, but also benefits from being just a stone's throw from the centre of the village and all its facilities. The cottage has all the mod cons including a modern kitchen with a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. As well as FreeSat TV and a DVD player, there is also free WiFi. The cottage is centrally heated but there is also a cosy log burner in the living room so you can curl up in front of a fire. We welcome dogs (as long as they are house trained!) and the second bedroom is ideal for children. Parking for two cars is available at the rear of the property.

We loved our stay at Tilly's Cottage and felt right at home straight away. It was in a fantastic location with a lovely little garden and had everything in it we could possibly have needed. Very dog friendly and the owners who met us there had also left a welcome pack which was very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to stay there again if we visit Bourton-on-the-Water in the future.

Fantastic well-equipped quaint cottage in perfect location, 2 minutes walk from bakeries, restaurants and dog friendly pubs. Ideal for walking with many beautiful footpaths nearby, including a lovely walk to the Slaughters. The welcome pack, including dog treats, is a lovely touch 😊. Would recommend 100%. We had a fantastic relaxing week.

We have just returned from a week at Tilly's Cottage. It is ideally situated a couple of minutes from the centre of Bourton on the Water, which is beautiful. Having said this, it is also very peaceful with little or no noise (except the birds twittering happily) Car parking is spacious and tucked away behind the cottage. The cottage does have everything you need, however we did not find it up to standard in some areas. The stairs are steep and proved difficult for one of our party, the seating downstairs is far from comfortable and we all had back ache after spending a couple of hours relaxing. The bathroom and decor are tired and need updating, the cleaners were not very thorough as there were several huge dust webs hanging around the sitting room. The large rug in the sitting room is dangerous as it moves on the wooden flooring - luckily no-one actually fell. Sadly we would not visit again as having stayed at numerous self catering cottages around the UK, this one did not meet the standards we have always had in the past.

Thank you for reviewing Tilly's Cottage and for your feedback. It's really important for us to hear what our customers think so we can look to improve the cottage where possible. We're delighted that you liked the location and that the cottage had everything you needed. There is obviously no excuse for there to be cobwebs and we apologise for this. Our mistake. We're also sorry one of your party found the stairs a little steep. But the angle is normal for a cottage of this age. The sofas downstairs are from MultiYork fitted with medium weight cushions which we chose as they are likely to suit as broad a range of people as possible. But I'm sorry they didn't suit your party. We recognised that the rug could move on the wooden floor so there is a non-slip mat underneath it. We will check to ensure this is sufficient. Finally, in terms of the bathroom, we are planning to update this during our next maintenance period this winter. Again, many thanks for your feedback.
