The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds lie mainly in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. Famous since medieval times for sheep-rearing and wool production they are now designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The magic of the Cotswolds is particularly enhanced by the architecture. Numerous charming, unspoiled villages built in locally quarried golden stone and weathered by age, delight the senses. Tourist attractions, National Trust properties, enticing shops, fine restaurants, and cosy, traditional inns with roaring fires welcome visitors from all over the world.
Bourton on the Water
Bourton-on-the-Water, one of the most famous and prettiest villages of the Cotswolds is located at the hub of the area so is an ideal base from which to explore. Known as "The Venice of the Cotswolds" as it is the only one of the six famous Cotswold villages (Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burfored, Chipping Campden, Moreton-in Marsh, and Stow-on-the-Wold) to have a river meandering through the main street, criss-crossed by small footbridges and populated by wildfowl. On all sides are charming Cotswold buildings of honey-coloured stone, weathered by age and softened by foliage. The centuries roll back and it is easy to envisage the appearance of an English village in a bygone era.
Places of interest in Bourton-on-the-Water include Birdland, the Motor Museum, the Perfumery, the Model Village and the Maze.

"Cute and Comfortable in the heart of the Cotswolds"
This is a small traditional Cotswold cottage situated in a quiet cul-de-sac , by the river in the centre of Bourton -on - the water. On arrival we found it spotlessly prepared and warm on a very cold day. The living area although small , lived up to the "cosy" label and had a real flame fire to give extra heat and atmosphere. The kitchen area was fully equipped, clean and easy to use.
Upstairs the 2 bedrooms [double and twin] were attractive and although still small , more than adequate for 4 people [say 2 adults and 2 kids]. The bathroom was modern , warm and again spotless.
The central position is a real plus , morning papers and breakfast supplies just a 2 minute stroll over the picturesque bridge.
An ideal rental from which to explore the Cotswolds.
We really appreciate your very kind review. Thank you!

The good points - the cottage is in the most beautiful setting and is indeed a really short walk to the beautiful centre of Bourton on the Water. The fire is lovely, the bed is very comfortable and t… More
We are extremely sorry to hear you were not happy with the cleanliness of some of the kitchenware on arrival and can only explain that, because it was Christmas, our regular housekeeper was away and we had a subsititute for your visit who did not do the usual job in the kitchen much to our disappointment. I have spoken to you and you assured me that the rest of the property, baths, beds etc. was clean so we hope that your comments can be taken in the context of this and our other reviews which are all complimentary about the cleanliness and condition of the cottage. Our apologies too if the notices about no pets on furniture and careful rubbish disposal offended - we wish we did not have to post those reminders. The rubbish is only collected every 2 weeks and they refuse to take it if it is not sorted correctly -as we have found in the past to our dismay. We are only a phone call/text away from guests so if problems are encountered we are always glad to sort them right away.

Thank you SO much for taking time to write such a lovely review of Cosy Cottage. As you can imagine it gives us enormous pleasure when guests do that and we are very grateful. It's heart-warming to hear that you appreciated the Cotswold ambience that we have tried to capture in the cottage and its decor. We will take your advice and get new photos done of the interior as you have correctly pointed out that some are out-of-date.
