“We enjoyed our week at Newbury Cottage, it was situated right on the High Street so all the amenities of Bourton On The Water were a couple of minutes away.”
Bourton On The Water is also handy for getting to other attractions of the Cotswolds, and although we drove to other places we were told there is a good bus service to places like Cheltenham for those who prefer not to use the car all the time.
Regarding the cottage itself, the kitchen was very well equipped, and the kitchen was clean. There was bread in the freezer with instructions to replace if used, which I thought was a good idea.
The furnishings in the cottage were a bit tired looking, dust was in all the wardrobes and also on the living room table.
Also driving through the gap to get to our parking space was extremely nerve racking, and you could see where some cars hadn't quite made it, and scraped the walls!! Can I recommend that advice is given to drive in from the village end, as that proved to be the easier option.
We were also a bit disappointed that our area of garden was not fenced in, and it would have been difficult to have the gate to the shared garden closed, which meant that our dog Ziggy had to be walked around the garden on the lead first thing in the morning and last thing at night, and could not run around the garden as he is used to at home.
Overall the cottage served it's purpose and we were comfortable there, and Bourton On The Water, with it's pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, as a location, cannot be faulted.
