Location Information

Twyn-Cott is situated in the peaceful Cotswold village of Little Rissington, just two miles from the bustling village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Bourton, known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, is home to a number of tourist attractions and popular eateries, and just five minutes away in Great Rissington is The Lamb Inn, a popular country pub with a mouth-watering menu.
For your shopping essentials, there is a well-stocked Co-op in Bourton-on-the-Water.
Little Rissington is well-placed for visiting the many picturesque towns and villages of the region such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford, Guiting Power, Kingham and The Slaughters.


What we liked: - quiet, cosy, charming cottage in traditional Cotswolds style - lovely garden with outdoor seating and treehouse for children - thoughtful welcome basket with milk, tea, coffee, bread, butter jam, yoghurt and delicious cakes from local baker - well equipped kitchen with all you need to cook and clean - beautifully furnished - Wi-Fi was good - extra touches like diffusers, nice soaps - easy parking around the corner - helpful instructions for location and entering the house What could have been better: - kitchen lights weren’t working so it was dark - beds were small and creaky - duvets were very thick for summer, would be better to make up the ends with either a summer or winter option - asking us to strip the beds, clean the house and empty bins by a 10am departure with small children was a struggle! Think it’s a bit much to ask for all of this when cleaning costs have already been factored into the price.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Francesca. We’re delighted you had an enjoyable stay at Twyn-Cott and appreciated the extra special touches throughout. We also appreciate your suggestions and have asked the owner to check the kitchen lights – these work on a dimmer switch and the guests since your stay haven’t raised any issue, but the owner is happy will double check this. The beds are standard king size and single size beds and are as advertised. An additional blanket is placed on the end of the beds in case this is needed but can easily be removed depending on a guest’s preference. A full clean is not mentioned as a requirement following departure, however the host does politely request that the bedding is stripped and placed into the laundry bags provided. Again, this is not a requirement but a polite request which is common for self-catering properties, helping to keep the cleaning team safe and limiting the spread of Covid. It is also very usual for self-catering accommodation to request the bins are emptied from the property (the kitchen bin at the very least) as there can sometimes be gaps between bookings and the cleaning team attending.
