    “If the photos are considered as part of the listing, they give a wrong impression of space and light, which the cottage badly lacks.”

    In truth it is small and dark, with the exception of the bathroom. There is seating for 5 in the lounge but this includes 2 sat in the window seat and unable to see the TV. With 5 chairs around the dining table plus the waste bin (not shown in your photos) the kitchen diner is VERY cramped, not a place to relax!! The bedroom does not have PLENTY OF STORAGE - the hanging space in an alcove is miniscule. The photo of the master bedroom suggests it is far larger than it really is. We made ...

    In truth it is small and dark, with the exception of the bathroom. There is seating for 5 in the lounge but this includes 2 sat in the window seat and unable to see the TV. With 5 chairs around the dining table plus the waste bin (not shown in your photos) the kitchen diner is VERY cramped, not a place to relax!! The bedroom does not have PLENTY OF STORAGE - the hanging space in an alcove is miniscule. The photo of the master bedroom suggests it is far larger than it really is. We made suggestions to the very nice owners in their book about improving the lighting. For the price paid we felt rather cheated. The description on the website does not reflect the fact that you are staying in intimate proximity to the occupants of 2 other cottages. After our earlier stay in the IOW with Sykes this was a disappointment.

    - Mr Bowden, September 2021

    All feedback is gratefully received. We have added storage, enhanced lighting in the living room. Pricing is very competitive, based on market forces and set by Manor Cottages. In so far as accuracy of the listing goes the description clearly states that this is a traditional period cottage. The large sofa can in fact seat at least 3; there’s an arm chair and window seat if required. This is a cottage building and is not advertised as a house brightly illuminated with modern lamps as such would detract from the cosy experience advertised. The cottage is larger than the neighbouring properties. There is a generously sized secluded private and gated garden to the rear of the property enabling complete privacy from anyone else. We have sympathetically restored, styled and dressed the cottage in keeping with a traditional Cotswold style. We are grateful for the positive comments of many guests in the on site guest book. Many appreciating our efforts to encapsulate the vibe of Cotswold living with a modern twist without compromising the wider appeal people would expect from wanting to stay in a natural stone built period grade II cottage.

The property

**Tuesday Cottage is the left hand cottage in photo 1** Tuesday Cottage is a character cottage nestled in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water, providing easy access to many Cotswold’s delights.

Dating back to the 17th century, this character abode is a lovely choice for families eager to break out of their normal routines and enjoy this scenic region of England.

Enter into the snug sitting room, exuding comfort and character throughout, with exposed beams and an alluring woodburning stove, this is a lovely place to ease into the evening.

Move into the kitchen/diner, appointed with all the essentials for a short break, so you can easily prepare home-cooked meals when you’re not dining out.

As you start to yawn, there are three beautifully appointed bedrooms to choose from; on the first floor lies the master, hosting a king-size bed and a character stone wall, while the second floor hosts a double with fabulous views and a quirky single.

Tying up the interior is the lavish bathroom, boasting a feature roll-top bath and walk-in shower enclosure, so you can enjoy both lazy soaks and refreshing showers.

Take your morning coffee outside to the enclosed patio area, where you can sit at the table and chairs amidst the wild shrubbery and plan for the day head.

Bourton-on-the-Water is a fantastic holiday base, with a superb selection of pubs, restaurants and shops to explore.

Take your group for a meal at The Rose Tree Restaurant, boasting traditional pub classics and a quaint beer garden, or pick up a local takeaway and enjoy food at home.

Spend an afternoon discovering the Cotswolds Motoring Musuem and The Model Village, a must-visit for any history buffs, or get out and about in nature, where you will be spoilt for choice with scenic walking around the surrounding towns and villages, particularly through Birdland Park and Gardens, home to a variety of wild birds.

With all of this, plus Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford and the historic city of Oxford within easy reach, Tuesday Cottage is perfectly placed for enjoying all that the Cotswolds has to offer.

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 where you can enjoy a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. 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.

Please Note: both sets of stairs rising from the first to the second floor, are narrower and steeper than you would find in a modern home. Not suitable for children under 6 years of age, or those with mobility issues.
Sorry - no pets.
Please be aware that this cottage requires a Good House-Keeping Bond of £300.00
