“Bourton on the water - an idyllic village”

Reviewed 10 Dec 2017

We visited Bourton on the water on Dec 4th and we stayed at Lavender Cottage. This cottage was one of the prettiest, clean, well equiped and just idyllic. The arrangements were well thought of and attension to detail paid by Hilary and Alisdair, for the little things, made our stay even more enjoyable. Bourton on the water is a must visit and very aptly called the Venice of Cotswolds. Simply loved the place and surely be visiting again!!

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to share your experience of Lavender Cottage and Bourton-on-the-Water. I know how much you enjoyed your stay here & we'll look forward to welcoming you again.

“Lovely cottage”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2017

Lovely cosy cottage in a great location right by the river/centre. Very comfortable beds and lots of extra little touches , welcome pack of groceries including a bottle of wine and a thoughtful card and chocolates for my mum's birthday. A bit tricky for parking but did manage to find a spot each day after we had been out for the day. The stairs are quite steep and tight without a banister so my 84 yr old dad couldn't make it to the top floor but that is to be expected in a cottage of this age and it is mentioned in the details so not a complaint, just a comment ...old people or small children may find it tricky. Thoroughly enjoyable stay ,lots to do in the area and Bourton has lots of nice restaurants,pubs ,shops a great chip shop and good bakeries. I would like to come back with my husband to do some of the walks around.

Owner's reply: Thanks for sharing your experience and raising a couple of valid points. I appreciate that the issue with the stairs was a comment, not a complaint. For other people reading this, we do make it clear, both in our listing & via personal email, that the cottage is not suitable for those with mobility problems. There are hand holds on the stairs, but it's not possible to install banisters. I'm sorry that your father had difficulty. This part of the village was built long before people had cars, so it's good to hear that you found a parking spot every day. Our guests have never had a problem parking close to the cottage, but it can get busy during peak holiday time. There are some lovely walks starting in the village, so maybe we'll see you & your husband in the future.

“Perfect getaway”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2017

We had a lovely three-night stay in Lavender Cottage. The accommodation was ideal and in a super location. The owners, Hilary and Alistair, were very thoughtful and generous. All in all, it was just what we'd hoped for – would definitely go back!

Owner's reply: Thanks for sharing your experience of Lavender Cottage. I'm pleased that you finally got the relaxing break you were looking for.

“Perfect Cotswolds cottage”

Reviewed 24 May 2017

We had the pleasure of staying at Lavendar cottage for 3 nights. The communication from Hilary prior to our arrival was great, all the information was very clear and she also let us check in early which was much appreciated especially when traveling with two small children. Upon arrival the cottage was neat and tidy and so lovely. There was so much supplies for us in the fridge and also two little books as presents for our children! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lavender cottage, a perfect little spot for exploring the Cotswolds!

Owner's reply: I'm pleased that you enjoyed your trip to the Cotswolds and that Lavender Cottage provided the perfect place to stay. Thanks for taking the time to post this review.

“The perfect base for a family holiday in the Cotswolds”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2016

Our family of four - children ages four and eleven - have just returned from our holidays in the UK. Lavender Cottage was an ideal home-away-from-home while visiting the Cotswolds. The cottage - one of three homes traditionally for workers of a larger manor - is clean and very comfortable. The rooms are bright and the windows of the cottage look onto a beautiful garden. The home is located just steps from the walkway, bridges and shops along the River Windrush, which was very convenient and made us feel that we were in the heart of things. Hilary, our host, kindly stocked the kitchen with some staples to get us settled. She also left gifts for our children in their rooms and provided games and art supplies in the living room. Our children were particularly taken with her large collection of Lego and happily played in the cottage during the evening hours. Our only challenge was initially finding the cottage as it is the third of three and set back from from the roadway through the gate to the right of Tuesday Cottage. In our case, a helpful neighbor came out to point us in the right direction. Burton-on-the-Water was a great base for our holiday in the region. There is an assortment of good restaurants and shops to enjoy in addition to the beautiful views in the village. Most memorable was likely our lovely meal served but a delightful young man at The Croft. We also visited the Dragonfly Maze, an outing our entire family enjoyed. If you are considering a vacation in the region or a stay at Lavender Cottage, don't hesitate!

Owner's reply: Thank you for using your jet lag hours to post this review so soon after you arrived home. It was a pleasure to meet you & I know that you all enjoyed your time here. The Lego has proved a big hit with our young guests & it's wonderful to see young imaginations at work. I'm sorry that you had difficulty in finding the cottage on arrival. Once a booking is confirmed I email our guests with general information. I also include attachments - the village map, and an arrival sheet which includes photos for the location & entrance to the cottage. I urge guests to print or study these photos because the cottage is tucked away, which is part of it's charm. I understand that things can get forgotten or lost when you're on a busy trip, so I'm glad that one of our friendly neighbours was available to help.

“Birthday celebrations”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2016

A wonderful family stay, close to walk into town, and explore the various pubs and shops, spotless inside, and as long as you are not all over 6'3, then you will find this a wonderful change to a hotel / B&B.

Owner's reply: I'm pleased that you enjoyed Lavender Cottage and it's proximity to all the village attractions. Yes, these old cottages are a challenge for very tall people. We've welcomed a guest of 6'7" who loves them - and only banged his head once! Thank you for taking the time to post this review.

“Perfect Cottage”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2015

We stayed in Lavendar Cottage for three nights with our 2 teenage children to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Instruction provide by Hiliary and Alistair made the cottage very easy to find - parking was very close by and problem free. On entering the cottage we noticed that 4 bottles of beer and a card had been left for my husband along with a stocked up fridge and other food items - a lovely gesture. The cottage was very clean and nicely furnished with lots of books, maps, DVDs and games. Beds were comfortable and bathroom newly refitted. The cottage was 2 mins walk into the town centre which had lots of restaurants ( Rose Tree was superb) coffee shops and gift shops. A wonderful stay and we wouldn't hesitate to return here again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to post this kind review. I'm pleased that you enjoyed staying here and that the gift of local beers went down well. The Rose Tree Restaurant is always a hit with our guests and I'm happy to hear that you had a good experience there.

“Lovely cottage in an excellent location - fantastic family stay”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2015

We had a fantastic week as a family at Lavender Cottage. We were celebrating 2 x family birthdays and the owners put in extra effort to get it decorated and ready for our 1st night there which was really lovely. The cottage is very well prepared for a family with lots of information on what to do, where to eat in the area and lots of games and DVD's suited for younger children. The location is within a stones throw of the river Windrush which makes it really easy to take a quick stroll around Bourton on the Water for food, an ice cream or some tea and cake or to visit the local attractions. It is all very central to a lot of other attractions in the area. Would highly recommend.

Owner's reply: I'm pleased that you enjoyed your holiday & birthday celebrations here and that you appreciated all that Lavender Cottage & Bourton-on-the-Water offer to visitors, including young children. The birthday decorations were a first for the cottage & I enjoyed arranging them for you. Thank you for sharing your experience.
