3 friends and I stayed at Lavendar cottage over the weekend of the wilderness festival as wanted a comfortable place to stay to recover from the festivities.
Hilary and Alistair were incredible hosts, ensuring our every need was catered for - from picking us up from the station and dropping us at the festival, to stocking the kitchen with water, milk, tea, cookies and wine...to the supply of make up removers to assist with the inevitable glitter removal!!
The rooms were incredibly clean, comfortable and welcoming, and Hilary and Alistair were available for everything we needed. In summary, the house was beautiful and the Scott's are two do the most hospitable people you could ever hope for in a holiday cottage, and would 10/10 recommend to anyone!
Since the moment we booked I had the feeling this was going to be a nice few days away. The cottage is tucked away from the main street, but its just a minute's walk to the green. The cottage is very clean and has great charm. Hilary ,the owner kindly left a host of provisions as well as two very nice books for my children. We stayed for 3 nights and travelled to see Broadway, Moreton-in-The-Marsh and Chipping Camden on the one day, however we really did not feel the need to go outside of Bourton on any other day. This was what I call " an old fashioned holiday". My kids are 10 and 13, but they loved the maze, the motor museum, the treasure hunt and the model village. We ate dinner at L'anatra and The Rose tree both of which were excellent! We had lunch at the Bakery on The Water sat next to the river which again was great. This cottage will now become a "getaway"for us a few weekends per year as long as we can book it!! Just one minor negative point, is that the village is very busy at weekends, especially with good weather and people can leave a mess on the green etc. after their picnics. It does get quieter in the evenings however. Give it a try you will not be disappointed by a pretty English village and a beautiful little cottage!!

This was my third stay at Lavender cottage, my Cotswolds home from home! The cottage was spotless and comfortable and everything we could have possibly wanted/ needed had already been thought of and provided. Alistair and Hilary are wonderful hosts.
Fantastic centrally located cottage- so peaceful, with everything one could possibly need for a short break.
Much appreciated and very helpful owners- we've already recommended this cottage to friends.
Many thanks for a wonderful holiday!
My wife and I and our two daughters (5 & 7) had a great time staying at this cottage, it is very well equipped with all the usual things plus loads of additions, dvds for kids, board games and there was a personalised gift left for each of my daughters on their beds, very thoughtful. Location is great, only 20 paces from the river, very central which meant my car didn't turn a wheel the first 4 days we were there. Overall a great holiday and a lovely cottage, would definitely recommend this.
