A wonderful little lodge situated a short walk away from Bourton-on-the-water. The lodge is a perfect size for couples looking for a quiet base from which to explore the Cotswolds. The lodge has everything that you'll need for your stay - the kitchen is well equipped and was stocked with all the essentials. We didn't get to try out the log burner, but the lodge would be suitable for a visit, whatever the season. We'll be recommending the lodge to our family & friends and will hopefully visit again soon!
Lynne is definitely a superhost for b&b. She was so helpful and gave us lots of suggestions for our trip to Bourton-on-the-water. We even followed her suggestion; such as dinner at The Hollow Bottom where we had delicious sunday roast, visited and say on the steam train from Toddington station to Chelhentam Station. My parents enjoyed. As we refused to move around, we had Lynne's cottage as our rest area, so we also drove to Oxford and Stonehenge and back, while on the way back, we stopped by Cirencester for delicious Thai meal. Coincidentally there was a Stow festival at Stow-on-the-wold, so we also had a great time at the festival. Not to forget, Lynne's cottage is just 10 mins walk from the lovely Bourton-on-the-water town, which is so beautiful and lovely. We also do some walking on the footpath from the town to other towns: Upper Slaughter and Lower Slaughter
Before we came, Lynne messaged me and asked us our breakfast preferences, this is definitely a superb service because i can never have the milk prepared by most b&b host due to intolerance issue but Lynne got me soya milk instead. She also prepared cream cake, which is a treat for my parents.
Lynne's cottage has a small patio with glass window, where we had our meals everyday. My parents enjoyed the relax and beautiful garden.
We received a lovely warm welcome from Lynne when we arrived at her fabulous, secluded and modern lodge. It is very well equipped with an excellent selection in the welcome pack and extras like cakes, biscuits and sauces as well as squash, plus a variety of hot drinks. A ten minute walk takes you to the centre of Bourton on the Water which is a beautiful picturesque village with a good choice of restaurants and pubs. There are numerous walks round the local area including one to the Slaughters. If you get a rainy day like we did Blenheim Palace is only a 40 minute drive away and well worth the journey. We would definitely recommend staying in this hidden gem.
The cottage is beautifully decorated and Lynne left us a lovely welcome pack and other snacks. Although the cottage is in the owners garden it is not over looked and feels very secluded. The cottage is in a perfect location for exploring Bourton on the water (10-15min walk) and is very close to footpaths to walk to surrounding villages. We recommend walking to Lower Slaughter and Stow on the Wold.
I booked this property for a weekend away for my partners 30th and have been very impressed throughout our 3 night stay. The property itself it clean, modern, well appointed and Lynne (the owner) has thought of every detail, even down to torches for the walk back in the evening. It is a short walk to Bourton centre and there are a couple of ways to get there, Windrush Walk is the one we chose as it takes along the river and through the countryside. 10 mins walking and your in town. We visited some of the local pubs and attractions (Birdland) - Brilliant... and enjoyed eating and drinking in those places Lynne has recommended. I don't often leave reviews, however this place has been amazing in every detail. Would recommend and will most certainly be returning!!
