    “We found the property to be in need of a deep clean, renovation and update.”

    When we arrived the heating and hot water was out which took some time to fix. Then the next morning we woke up and the electricity had stopped working. The smart TV intermittently would stop working and I think needed new batteries and none in the house. The furniture felt a bit dusty and unclean. No toiletries are provided except hand soap, and the hand soap was heavily watered down. Only the tiniest bit of washing liquid provided so we needed to buy our own!

    When we arrived the heating and hot water was out which took some time to fix. Then the next morning we woke up and the electricity had stopped working. The smart TV intermittently would stop working and I think needed new batteries and none in the house. The furniture felt a bit dusty and unclean. No toiletries are provided except hand soap, and the hand soap was heavily watered down. Only the tiniest bit of washing liquid provided so we needed to buy our own! Booking through manor cottages was also not ideal - it was difficult to communicate any requests in advance. Would much rather go through an Airbnb where you communicate directly with the owner. Overall would not stay again.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Willow Cottage. I'm sorry to hear you had a couple of issues at the property, but i believe you spoke to our out of hrs with regards to the tripped switch, which temporarily turned off the power, along with the TV as the power was down and effected all electrical appliances for a short period of time. The remote just needed some new batteries, which we would normally provide, but unfortunately we couldn't late on Christmas Eve so apologies for this inconvenience . With regards to the cleaning we will pass on your comments to Managed Services for review, but we can only apologies if this wasn't up to our usual high standards. With regards to the soap, we only provide a starter pack which is enough for a few days, this includes, toilet rolls, hand soap, a few dishwasher tables, sponge, cloth, washing up liquid. Never the less you should have enough of everything for a few days. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

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.
