    “We very much enjoyed our stay in this well appointed and tastefully decorated cottage with all the comforts of home and a very well equipped kitchen.”


    It is very well located for easy access to all the attractions in Bourton on the Water and the surrounding Costswolds. There are, however, a couple of things we would like to point out which were not as described in the welcome pack. 1. There was no dustpan and brush or broom. 2. The wi fi code on the laminated signs is incorrect. The correct code can only be found on a small sticker in the front of the welcome pack. 3. Lastly and probably the most irritating and worrying thing we would like to draw attention to is the dog faeces found on the garden path, which we felt obliged to remove (photographic evidence of which can be provided). Whilst there is a reminder in the cottage for dog owners to be vigilant, we feel a thorough check of the garden should be made by cleaning staff after each let.

    Many thanks for your feedback and your great scores, it is very much appreciated. We are so pleased that you found the house so comfortable, well equipped and that you found the location so easy. Its great to hear of people enjoying the cottage so much and enjoying their holidays. Thanks for the feedback points. The points have been discussed with Manor cottages who fully manage the property and whole process. On the inventory there was previously a dustpan and brush and a broom so maybe they have been stored incorrectly on change over with other cleaning products or have been removed, its being checked and new ones will be on the way as needed. The wifi codes will be sorted, it has high speed internet and we think the code was changed but not updated everywhere. The garden has been discussed with the housekeepers from manor cottages and they offer their apologies, the garden is checked but obviously this was missed. They confirmed they have updated processes accordingly. Thanks again and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and the Cotswolds. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Bourton-On-The-Water in Gloucestershire is Well Cottage, a fabulous four-bedroom cottage sleeping seven guests.

Ideal for a family break, Well Cottage boasts a stylish décor with plenty of home comforts to welcome you into this home away from home for your trip.

Arriving at the cottage, three off-road parking spaces greet you, inviting you in to commence your relaxing break.

Stepping into the cottage, the entrance hallway provides a space for you to leave your coats and shoes before making your way into the sitting rooms.

Two sitting rooms are joined by a dining room, giving the cottage a lovely open feel, while allowing for some peaceful areas to be created when closed off.

Warm your toes in front of the woodburning stove in the sitting room, where you will also find a plush sofa and armchair to sink in and watch the TV on.

Moving through the property, the second sitting room offers another TV and an electric fire, so there is a cosy feel throughout the property and plenty of space for the group to relax and unwind.

Gather at the dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal while you plan your next adventure.

The chef of the group will be delighted to cook in this amply-equipped kitchen home to an electric oven and gas hob, along with a handy dishwasher to make cleaning up a breeze.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs to find four bedrooms with a light décor and plush beds.

Two super-king-size bedrooms are fitted with zip/link beds and en-suites; the first (please note that this bedroom is accessed through the single room) homing a gorgeous roll-top bath you can look forward to soaking in as well as a walk-in shower, and the second homing another shower (over the bath) where you can freshen up between activities.

Making your way through the first floor, happen upon the twin bedroom, also with a zip/link feature for a flexible sleeping arrangement for varying party sizes, and a final single room.

Guests will also benefit from a shower room with a walk-in shower, basin and WC, perfect for getting ready for a day of discovering the local area.

Enjoy your morning coffee in the garden; the exceptionally spacious lawn offers a lovely space for the children to play and for your four-legged friend to give their legs a stretch, while the patio offers a wonderful dining space for those balmy summer evenings.

If you like to venture out while on holiday, a short stroll will take you to the centre of the village which is home to a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés.

Why not treat your group to a takeaway after a long day of discovering your surroundings, or perhaps dine out at the delightful The Rose Tree Restaurant.

For a spot of history, wandering the high street will give you a fascinating insight into the culture of the village, with over 100 Grade II and above listed buildings in the area to marvel at.

The Cotswolds Motoring Museum and The Model Village are also within easy reach, here you can spend an afternoon imagining a time gone-by.

Avid walkers and cyclists have a plethora of options within the village and surrounding towns, while bird-watchers can relish in a peaceful day at Birdland Park and Gardens where there is over 500 types of bird to spot, set in lovingly-kept gardens.

Further afield, the charming Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural beauty homes many more characterful villages including Lower Slaughter, Stow-on-the Wold, Burford and the historic city of Oxford.

Choose Well Cottage for an enjoyable stay in this picture-perfect area of the Cotswolds.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


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.

This property has a £350 good housekeeping bond.
One dog is welcome for an additional fee of £25.
