“Perfect place for perfect holidays”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Lavender Cottage was absolutely perfect.
It was our second visit to the area and we were really impressed by the high standards offered.
It was clear that Hilary and Alistair have thought about everything you could possibly need to make the stay perfect in any sense.
The cottage is equiped with more than the essentials, nothing is missed...and so clean!
Great selection of movies, cds, maps, suggested sites to see and eat, books, and games...kids loved the basket full of legos to play with.
It was such a nice treat to find presents on their beds!.
Fridge really well stocked and even the bathroom, with shower gel, body lotion
The extras were great, and marked the difference, but the essentials...wow!...fluffy towels, comfy beds, nice shower.
The cottage is located in a quite spot just next to the main street within two minutes walk of the centre of Bourton and all its restaurants and amenities.
Definitely a wonderful place to stay and dicover the beautiful Cotswolds.

“Just the best”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This part of the world is just beautiful and the Cottage was well appointed, well equipped and an absolute joy. The owners Hilary and Alastair are so accommodating and all of our negotiations from Australia were answered promptly and accurately. Thank you so much Hilary and Alastair and we would certainly return to your beautiful cottage. the Rose Tree Restaurant is a must also, as recommended by our hosts.

“Idyllic......”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A beautiful cottage in an idyllic location. We celebrated our anniversary whilst we was there and Hilary very kindly left us some chocolates and an anniversary card, so thoughtful. The extras that Hilary left included wine, jam, bread, butter, juice, tea, coffee, milk etc and were gratefully received - Bourton on the Water is such a pretty village and Lavender Cottage is perfectly placed just 2 minutes walk from the main area. Hilary and Alistair are the perfect hosts and I highly recommend Lavender Cottage, cannot fault it at all.
