“Perfect location, cosy cottage.”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We would stay again in this adorable cottage in a heartbeat. It is absolutely charming - tiny, but heaving with character. In winter the little sitting room would be cosy with its open fire - bring your own logs - and even though it was quite chilly the light-flooded kitchen was glorious and so warm and filled with sunshine we had to open the windows (my daughter needed sunglasses at breakfast!). The bedrooms are small but charming and all decorated in tasteful Farrow-ish colours throughout. Our only tiny gripe would be the tragic shower whose flow is analogous to standing outside on an Autumnal day with a fine mist so hair washing has to happen in the wash basin unless you have a buzzcut. Location is top banana; seconds from the high street for grocery essentials yet marvellously quiet, tucked down a side street. We wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Had a great time at the cottage,so clean with fantastic character. The village itself was stunning and a great place to unwind. The cottage was ideally situated only minutes from the local shops/tea rooms/pubs etc. Will definitely look to revisit in the future

“A little piece of history with all mod cons”

I stayed at Allerton Cottage with my husband and toddler. The house is beautiful with low beams and wooden floors. It is tastefully and comfortably furnished and there are some lovely touches like Portmeirion crockery and good toiletries. The owners also left us some handy provisions like milk, tea, coffee, dishwasher tabs and washing up liquid. Although entering the house is like stepping back in time, it also has enough modern touches to make your stay a relaxing one eg dishwasher, washing machine, DVD player. People with kids will be glad of the stairgate, travel cot and high chair but should be aware that the garden is not enclosed and that there is no light over the very steep, dark staircase which leads up to the twin bedroom at the top of the house. The location on Bourton High Street is perfect for town and it's a great base for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds by car.
