We really enjoyed our holiday at Lavender Cottage. It is a beautiful place to stay and is within walking distance of all the attractions that Bourton has to offer. Ceilings and doorframes are low, so you do need to keep that in mind and duck at various places, but this is because it is a genuine Cotswold cottage with wooden beams. We would book there again.

Thank you for your lovely review of Lavender Cottage. It really is a beautiful place to stay and ideally placed to enjoy all Bourton and the Cotswolds has to offer. We do state on our website that the property has low beams, but we are glad this did not affect your stay. We hope to welcome you back to Lavender Cottage again!

Our 5 day stay included staying over Christmas , it was a fairy tale as the cottage was this magical space where we chatted with our children, cooked Christmas dinner with the surroundings of the cosiest decor, we loved Bourton on the water. walking in the village and noting how picturesque it was with ducks in the water, lovely tea rooms and gift shops I highly recommend this cottage. It has something magical.
