Very Good

“Perfect, cozy cottage!”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2017

The Captain's Cottage in Bourton on the Water was perfect! Ideal location for wandering the beautiful streets, close to great restaurants and great hiking paths nearby. The kitchen was well equipped for meal preparation. The bed was very comfortable which was important after a day of hiking. Pete and Allison's description and instructions for key were spot on. Love Captain's Cottage, highly recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your wonderful review, so glad to hear you enjoyed the walks nearby and the cottage facilities, please visit us again!

“Perfect cottage”

“Absolutely fabulous - dream come true!”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

For years I've been watching 'Escape to the Country' and one of my big ticket items during our England stay, was to stay in a listed cute Cotswolds cottage and feel as though I was living there. Captain's Cabin totally fulfilled that dream! It is absolutely gorgoeus, full of character and was spotless. Whenever I had to contact the owner e.g. we locked ourselves out one morning, we got very quick responses and they were very helpful. We absolutely LOVED our stay here and only wish it were longer. The location and position of the cottage is perfect, at the end of a very cute and quiet lane, but in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water which itself is absolutely gorgoeus. I highly recommend this accommodation if you want that true English cottage feel, as this cottage is FULL of character and felt very homely. Everything was provided and everything was so clean, and the bathroom was new and clean. It doesn't have a washing machine, but just a few minutes walk away was a laundromat, and they were very friendly and we had our washing done in no time for no effort. The cottage has all you could ask for, with so much charm and character and you won't want to leave. Absolutely loved it!!! Thank you.

“Cosy well presented cottage in centre of town”

Reviewed 26 May 2015

This is a very conveniently located cottage down a short cul de sac off the main street. Very well equipped and exceptionally clean which is always required as far as we are concerned. It is cosy and would not suit anyone with mobility issues but has been cleverly restored with excellent use of available space. There is a path behind the cottage that caused a small issue one evening but really overall this is a very quiet location. Parking is tight but certainly not overly difficult to get into. The bedroom particularly was lovely and comfortable with quality bedding and we slept well. The outside space is small but a sun trap that is fine for sitting in the evening with a glass of wine. For our 3 night stay it was ideal and no complaints whatsoever from us.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words please visit us again!

“Absolutely delightful cottage. A real find!”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2014

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Captain's Cottage. The cottage is delightful, tastefully decorated and full of charm and character. The location was ideal for exploring the Cotswolds and was a stones throw from all the wonderful shops and restaurants.

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage, thank you for your kind comments and please come and visit us again!

“Absolutely lovely little cottage in a perfect location”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2014

This is a typical Cotswold cottage just minutes from everything you might ever need on the high street (wonderful bakery, great fish and chips, supermarket, pubs, restaurants, etc). It's very quiet though because it's at the end of a no through road and the village is very small. The cottage is lovely, very clean, everything new and very well decorated to go with the style of the building/area. There's absolutely everything you might need in the kitchen, living room and bedrooms, including a cosy blanket for watching TV on the sofa, plenty of pillows, all sorts of kitchen utensils (could have done with a beer opener, as there is a local brewery where we bought local beer), etc. The central heating warms up the cottage really quickly and efficiently. Bathroom is modern, clean, practical and with an excellent shower. All bedlinen was crisp and cosy, towels very fluffy and nice smelling. Instructions were very clear, although I would add instructions on how to put the key safe back as it took us a while to realise you have to enter the combination again! We had a fantastic time here.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We hope to welcome you back soon!

“Very enjoyable break in Captains Cabin”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2014

Cottage recently renovated to a very high standard with everything needed for a cottage holiday. It is just like you see it on the website we were highly delighted. Situated in a very convenient position to walk into the picturesque Bourton on Water. Lots of places to eat, drink and shop in a lovely setting.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review and we would love to welcome you back!

“Perfect stay in lovely cottage!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

A friend and I enjoyed four nights at this charming little cottage! The owner had excellent communication before, during, and after our stay - we emailed back and forth several times prior to arriving, and Peter sent directions and a list of car hire services. There is parking for one car. The key was in a key box with a combination, so we didn't have to worry about meeting him at a specific time to check in, which was nice as we were arriving by public transport and weren't sure how long it would take. When we had questions about the heating and the plumbing, I emailed Peter and he answered within a minute or two each time. WIFI was included and connection was great, which was much appreciated! The ground floor of the cottage contains the living room and the kitchen, which is nicely equipped. There is a table which unfolds for dining, but we just sat on the couch and the floor as we only ate breakfast in the cottage. Peter supplied us with a bottle of wine, a small jug of milk, sugar, tea bags, and instant coffee. There is a kettle and a french press coffee maker, along with a nice assortment of cooking supplies and dishes. He even thought to include a pair of scissors in the utensils. Dish soap and tablets for the dishwasher were also provided. The stairs to the first floor are steep, but there is a door at the bottom of the stairs that closes, keeping noise from the ground floor from traveling up to bedrooms and also allowing small children to be kept away from the stairs. The first floor has the bathroom and a bedroom with a double bed. The bathroom has a nice deep tub and a shower with good water pressure and lots of hot water! Travel size toiletries were supplied. Linens and towels were super nice and soft. The only thing missing was a hair dryer - that would have been a nice addition. The attic is a lovely, cozy room with steep stairs (another door at the bottom of these stairs to block noise and access by small children) and a single bed. I adored this room and loved sleeping with the attic window open each night so I could hear the church bells! Light switches are very conveniently placed to turn lights off from the beds each night. The beds were very comfortable and the duvets were warm. The location of the cottage was perfect - 50 yards up a small dead end lane off the High Street - close to all the action but just enough away to be super quiet. Handily, the bus stop is just at the bottom of the lane, which made it incredibly convenient to catch the bus to Stow-in-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. A minute's walk from the cottage door to the bus stop! There are direct busses to Stow-in-the-Wold (10 minutes) and Moreton-in-Marsh (20 mins, stops on high street and at rail station). We did several walks around the area and explored lots of other villages, and we were very happy with our choice of this cottage and Bourton-on-the-Water as a home base! Bourton is a gorgeous town with a nice selection of restaurants and shops. We walked to the towns of Lower and Upper Slaughter and Stow-in-the-Wold, and took busses to Stow, Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway, and Chipping Campden. From Moreton-in-Marsh, we took the train to Oxford and London. A footpath runs just behind the lane which was nice for our walks. The only caution I would give is that the ceilings on the ground floor are low - maybe six feet (six and a half feet tops), so it might be hard for anyone over six feet to stand upright on the ground floor. The ceilings on the first and second floors are higher. I'm sure Peter would be happy to measure and let renters know ahead of time if there was a question - he was super helpful to us! I highly recommend this cottage and Peter as a very helpful host!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for leaving this detailed review. Just to let you know the hairdryer was tucked away in one of the bedside cabinets so we will make sure it is left in the cupboard next time for visibility. Very pleased you loved the cottage and do visit us again! Best Wishes, Peter
