Absolutely loved our stay here. The house is supberb with so many original features and attention to detail in the pictures and ornaments that decorate it. The owner along with the neighbours made us feel so welcome, it really felt very special. The garden is south facing and a real sun trap. The village of Bourton on the Water is very pretty with some great attractions, great eateries, and lovely walks. Would highly recommend. If we return to Bourton which is very likely, there is no where else that we'd like to stay.

Thank you for your glowing review Paul! We are delighted that you had a lovely stay and felt so welcome at Middle Gable. We look forward to welcoming you back with StayCotswold in the future!

Middle Gable is an amazing house in the beautiful village of Bourton on The Water. In an excellent position just 30 seconds away from the High Street. The house is beautiful, steeped in history, and the attention to detail is second to none, it makes you wonder who used to own it when it was first built, and who would have stayed there, maybe someone in the many portraits hung around the house. it’s is extremely well equipped, very homely and Kate the owner is so lovely. We visited as a family of 5 and have all been to Bourton many times, but Middle Gable has certainly stolen our hearts and we cant wait to come back. Thank you sooooo much Kate for letting us share your beautiful house. x recommendations - follow the footpath along the Windrush, Duke of Wellington Sunday Carvery is lovely, Old Manse food is nice and reasonably priced, Cedars is a lovely shop, as well as the kitchen shop both full of goodies. get logs from Cotswold logs in Moreton in Marsh they last a lot longer than the supermarket ones and are so much cheaper too. A total must whilst you are there is the Bloody Bourton Tour run by Ed every Friday and Saturday meeting at 7pm at the War Memorial, Middle Gable even gets mentioned, and it’s great to learn about bits of Bourton you wouldn’t have known. Highly recommend Middle Gable.

Lisa, thank you so much for your wonderful review. Both the StayCotswold team and the owner loved having you to stay at Middle Gable and cannot wait to welcome you back. Your recommendations on what to see and do are also very much appreciated. We hope to see you in the Cotswolds very soon!
