Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This turned out to be an ideal location for our family holiday. The house was very comfortable and in a quiet part of Bourton and conveniently located close to a co-op. The rural walks delighted all of us. One minor bit of confusion when we first arrived. There are in fact two Red Houses - East Red House and West Red House. Two of our party waited patiently at the West one only to discover later that we were in the East one. That might be clarified in the information provided. June 2012.
  2. The cottage was just right for a 70th birthday surprise weekend, for extended family, aged from 12 to 70. There was plenty of space, we brought a wii which fitted to the tv screen and we all enjoyed playing when it was wet. The swimming pool is only a few minutes walk away. Tesco delivered to the house when we arrived, which saved a big shop, but there is a large co-op just a few minutes walk away which was useful to top up. Sudeley Castle was just 20 minute drive away, tesco clubcard vouchers can be used for the entrance price and everybody enjoyed that. June 2012.
  3. The children loved the house plenty of room to play inside, good for the rainy days. Ideal location for walking to the bakers every morning. April 2012.
  4. Great location - in a lovely village, in the centre of the Cotswolds, near the local swimming pool, near a garage with groceries and papers and plenty of free parking at the house. March 2012.
  5. Great location and accommodation for 5 couples or young families who want to get away together. The lounge was ideal for all of us to sit together and play games. The kitchen/ dining room was also big enough for all of us to eat together. Also, we were pleased to have bathrooms for each couple. The location was ideal as it is just a short walk into Bourton-on-the-water. Jan 2012.
  6. Plenty of space, both communally and privately. A big yet cosy house which has everything you could need to make yourself at home. The owner was helpful and friendly on the phone and left us to our own devices to enjoy our stay. We had a wonderful time and hope to visit the property again in the future. Nov 2011.
  7. Nice house good location to the town only dissapointment we couldn’t all fit round the dinning table. Sept 2011.
  8. An excellent choice for a big group. We were 14, raging in age fro 18 months to 80 (years), grandparents and the families of their offspring. Each of us had their separate flatlet, but we shared the huge kitchen and living room. The house has all appliances that one may need for comfortable living, yet it has character and is not too modern and elegant. A great location for walks in the Cotswolds and Bourton itself is lovely. Aug 2011.
  9. Ideal for a family get-together with range of ages 6 weeks,10 months, 3 years, 6 years x2 plus 6 parents and 2 grandparents. Easy walking access to town centre and facilities, good playground just along the road and swimming pool round the corner, no need to get in the car all the week which was brilliant. As our family are spread around the world it was a good base. June 2011.
  10. Great easy access walk to town. In other direction walk to countryside. April 2011.
  11. A central location for access to the village of Bourton on the Water. We were a family group celebrating a golden wedding anniversary and the accommodation gave us the space and comfortable surroundings to relax as a family. I would highly recommend the cottage and the location. March 2011.
  12. Able to facilitate our large group. Large dining room area. Feb 2011.
  13. Lovely, spacious house which easily was convenient for all local amenities. Jan 2011.
  14. Fine for a short weekend break. Cooking would be a chore for a full house over several days. Jan 2011.
  15. We really enjoyed the cosy homely feel of the house. Dec 2010.
  16. A lovely home, ideal for a large group, in a beautiful part of the country. Oct 2010.
  17. It was good sized accommodation for our party of 3 families and 2 singles. It was very helpful having a stairgate to keep the little ones safe. May 2010.
  18. I found it very comfortable, making me feel "at home" straight away. May 2010.
  19. Property had lots of character and it was very comfortable, everybody loved it. Feb 2010.
  20. Great location and suited our party of 14 really well. We only had breakfast in the property and heated up food. Not sure if cooking a meal for that many people would be achievable but it was perfect for what we wanted. Feb 2010.
