“Home away from home”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Warm with great beds and very nice linen and towels . The owner was very easy too deal with and nothing was a problem. Very generous with the provisions that were left for our use,.The position was excellent and nice and quite, which made walking into the village easy.
Would stay here again and wish the owners all the best for the effort that has gone in too making this a nice mix of old charm and modern living.

“Delightful and Very Well Appointed Cottage”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at Lavender Cottage for a 2 night break.

Location is a stones throw distance walk into Boughton, but far enough away from the summer tourists. Centrally located in the Cotswolds so if you are looking for a base to explore it's perfect.

The cottage was really well looked after, clean, very nicely decorated and furnished and plenty of household utensils and items to ensure a well self-catered break. All bed linen, towels etc were nice and clean and fresh.

Hilary was very friendly and attentive enough to ensure that we had everything we needed when we arrived, even wine, beer and milk in the fridge among other things!

We all really enjoyed our stay at Lavender Cottage and if we were staying in Boughton again would not hesitate to come straight back.

“Beautiful, cozy cottage in an idyllic Cotswold location”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Lavender Cottage - really comfortable with everything you need, done up to a high standard. It couldn't be closer to the main street of Bourton-on-the-Water while still being very quiet and private. There are so many walks and pubs to enjoy both within Bourton and the surrounding areas. Would stay at the cottage again and again, highly recommend it. Owners are also very lovely, friendly people! :-) Thank you for a fantastic stay!
