The cottage is less than 2 minutes walk into the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water, so really convenient for getting to restaurants, coffee bars and walking around to explore the area without needing the car. It is on a busy road, which would usually bother me but because the location is so handy and the traffic didn't disturb us at night, this wasn't a problem. The cottage is beautifully done and spotlessly clean and although not huge, was fine for us, a party of 4 adults and a baby. We used the attic room as a nursery for a 6 month old baby in a cot bed, which proved extremely useful as it served as a cosy play area too with plenty of room away from our Golden Retriever who always likes to get involved! It was a little awkward getting everything up there but as long as you're reasonably mobile, it's no real problem. There are plenty of electrical sockets, even in the attic room, although clothes hanging space is quite limited and could be a challenge if you're staying longer than a weekend and don't travel light. However, there's plenty of room to keep suitcases under the bed and it is a super cottage and we'd definitely stay there again if we return to the area.
I have just spent an amazing weekend with my grandchildren in Bourton on the Water enjoying the spectacular annual Christmas fair in this stunning village in the Cotswolds. The highlight of the event was the illumination of a beautiful Christmas tree in the middle of river! We stayed at Chapel Cottage which is a lovely Cotswold stone cottage in the heart of the village, set just off the high street which, despite being only a few metres from the hustle and bustle of the village is a wonderfully quiet retreat. The owners have tastefully restored the cottage to an extremely high standard retaining many of the original period features including a fantastic large inglenook fireplace and the lovely original beams. It was truly a home from home with all the mod cons you could need. The children loved the secret snug room at the top of the cottage, equipped with a tv, dvds and games! I have just had an operation on my knee and although the beautiful original staircase was a little steep it had a sturdy handrail which made it easy for me to get upstairs to the delightful bedrooms. A big thank you to Jigsaw Holidays for a perfect cottage in the perfect location.
Making the most of our ‘Puente’ (a four day holiday) we have come from Barcelona to explore the Cotswolds. We have spent 4 wonderful days in this beautiful cottage in Bourton on the water. Location could not be better and there is no need to cook as you have plenty of choice just a few steps from the door! We explored lots of other beautiful villages and pubs but it was always very good to return each evening to Chapel Cottage and relax in front of the beautiful fireplace with a glass of vino ;-) We will be recommending this lovely comfortable cottage to all our friends and hope to be back….maybe next Puente.
Great Location for Bourton Village but,...Very Noisy because the cottage is on the main road.with a constant stream of traffic from 4.30am !!.
Our experience staying at chapel cottage was dreadful, extremely dirty kitchen the sink fridge and microwave had not been cleaned for our stay..previous guests 'hair' in both beds, lounge had previous guests crumbs and sweet papers stuffed down the cushions....stairs dangerous with one step in particular breaking away and very loose.....complaints to Jigsaw and Owners fell on deaf ears and blame afforded to us as guests...easy to do when none of them ever met us....
Could not in all good concience recommend this Cottage nor Jigsaw agency.
