    “Although the facilities essentially met the description given, the property was a little disappointing.”

    I understand from the internet that the property and adjacent (presumably owner’s house) has recently been sold “STC”. The main property was unoccupied although someone, presumably a house sitter, did stay a few nights in another accommodation. In the absence of an interested owner the bushes have grown to the extent that on entering Larks Lodge it is difficult to avoid scratching the car and even more difficult to turn without touching bushes. Note that the photo of the property ...

    I understand from the internet that the property and adjacent (presumably owner’s house) has recently been sold “STC”. The main property was unoccupied although someone, presumably a house sitter, did stay a few nights in another accommodation. In the absence of an interested owner the bushes have grown to the extent that on entering Larks Lodge it is difficult to avoid scratching the car and even more difficult to turn without touching bushes. Note that the photo of the property exaggerates the actual size of the parking /garden area. In the lodge there was a book in which previous occupants had noted maintenance issues requiring attention. Not all had been attended to although some were easy fixes. We had a problem with the TV (an aerial cable issue already noted in the book but not yet permanently fixed) although Sykes did get this sorted very promptly. However, it should not have happened. The was a rather unsavoury smell coming from the kitchen sink. The shower sealer was mildewed - yet another previously noted issue. The towels supplied were not really adequate for a week stay. In summary nice place, nice lodge but not up to our previous (or subsequent) experiences with Sykes properties. Could be so much better if someone took an active interest in the day to day management of the property.

    The property is fully managed and the owner is indeed very involved despite only living there part time. The garden is regularly maintained by a dedicated gardener and any maintenance issues are dealt with swiftly where possible. There is a welcome folder at the property which contains several contact details in case of any issues during guests' stay. We always encourage our guests to get in contact should they find that something needs rectifying. The guest book is checked at each changeover and if any issues are highlighted they will of course be sorted immediately. It clearly states on the website that there is no washing machine at the property due to size of the property and 2 towels per person are provided. If a guest stays longer than a week, a complimentary freshen up (new towels/ linen) will be offered. Owner relations

About the location

BOURTON-ON-THE-WATER

Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.
