Just a Few Minutes Stroll from the Pituresque Village of Bourton-on-the-Water
About Lynsey Hodgkinson
We are a family of four, our two boys are aged 24 and 25 are both at University. We chose to have a holiday home in Bourton-on-the-Water as it is such a pretty and friendly village. We especially love the freedom of being able to walk into the village and enjoy its facilities, such as lovely shops and restaurants without having to get in the car.

Why Lynsey Hodgkinson chose Bourton-on-the-Water
We chose this property because it has lots of traditional charm and character. When we first walked in we knew it had potential, with it's lovely spacious, bright layout. We just knew, with a lot of hard work and a bit of inspiration, we could make this lovely stone Cotswold cottage, with it's pretty walled garden, a very special place to spend time.

The Perfect Cottage
The Jasmine Cottage is so beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you’ll need in this very lovely village of Burton-on-the-Water. Directions to the cottage, instructions in its use and Lynsey’s availability for our questions was clearly communicated via email. She also extended her hospitality with delicious chocolates, milk, tea and coffee in her well equipped kitchen and a lovely bouquet of flowers. Thank you, Lynsey and Darrell!

Beautifully renovated cottage in a perfect location
The cottage has been beautifully renovated to a high standard and was pristinely clean. Lovely courtyard garden and comfy beds! It's a wonderful location being a very short walk to the centre of Bourton on the Water and the shops. There are country walks from the doorstep, including walks to Upper and Lower Slaughter. The best part for us was the pub opposite The Mousetrap Inn which served great food and drinks which we could enjoy without having to worry about driving anywhere.
First the good.
The Jasmine Cottage was the best rental property we have ever had. We have rented all over the world with VRBO/HomeAway and rank this rental as the best by far. Communication from the owner was outstanding and she made it easy to find, enter and make use of the rental. The Cottage was the cleanest and best equipped we’ve ever rented and the owner seemed to have thought of everything. The location was outstanding within easy walking access to everything Bourton-on-the-Water had to offer as well as quick access to the highway for drives to other villages in the Cotswolds. Now for the not so good. There is nothing I could think of that would even remotely make the list of not good. This place is excellent.
Feeling like coming home
Very lovingly decorated with everything you need, a warm welcome from Lynsey, it was a pleasure to meet her and we will definitely come back, thank you for this week at Jasmine
Very well maintained property and very comfortable furnishings. Perfect location, lovely pub across the road, what could be better? Hope to stay again
