We had a lovely long weekend at Little Mullions. This was our first visit to the Cotswolds and the cottage is perfectly located, near the buzzing town of Bourton, with easy circular walking trails - and with a car we were able to visit different landmarks in no time. Cottage was cosy and exactly what we needed for a family getaway.

Thank you for your review of Little Mullions. We are delighted you found the property to be cosy and in a great location. We hope you will be back to stay again soon!

Lovely cottage in a charming village with numerous local walks & within a short drive of many of the Cotswolds' beautiful sights We had a fantastic weekend. Thank you. One slight criticism is the cottage description & photograph does not make it clear that the allocated parking space for the property is some 80 yards away. it was only when arrival instructions came after booking that this became evident. This may be an issue for some Overall though - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Thank you Alun for your review of Little Mullions. We are delighted you found the property to be lovely and in a charming village location. We hope you will be back to stay again soon!

I booked this stay to recoup after my losing husband with a few close friends. Overall, we had a nice weekend away in the Cotswolds. Village location nice and only a short (ish) walk to Bourton. Welcome pack was thankfully received and we enjoyed. On arrival we were some towels short, but this was quickly resolved by the booking agent. Couple of elements within property that were not very good were the following... Shower: Poor shower, (more of a drizzle) and was either cold or scalding hot, this was quite dangerous. We could not get any channels on the tv, therefore we could only watch the apps on the tv, this is a basic in a holiday rental and very disappointing. All glasses, plates etc in the dining room and nothing in the kitchen, we found this quite frustrating when preparing dinner etc.

Julie, we are pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay. The property owner is disappointed that the issue you encountered with the shower was not reported to them during your stay even though you had contacted them to report the shortage of towels on your arrival. The cottage is located in a hard water area and unfortunately from time to time, limescale does build up in the shower head which effects the water pressure which then affects the showers’ ability to control the temperature. The property owner does keep a spare shower head in the cupboard for these occasions and they would have happily guided you to its location had you had notified them. The TV is advertised as Smart TV with Netflix (guests to use their own login details for Apps). Due to restricted space in the kitchen all table wear is kept in the dresser in the dining area. It’s great to hear that you found the village location to be nice and we do hope that you will be back to stay in the Cotswolds again soon!
