'SPRING COTTAGE' Bourton on the Water - Close to the Village/South Facing Garden
About Lynsey Hodgkinson
We live in Lichfield in Staffordshire with our two sons aged 25 and 23. We love the Cotswolds as there is so many lovely places to visit and relaxing things to do. We particularly chose to buy a cottage in Bourton-on-the-Water as we love the convenience of being able to walk into one of the prettiest villages in England with it lovely shops, cafes and restaurants.
Lynsey Hodgkinson purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Lynsey Hodgkinson chose Bourton-on-the-Water
We fell in love with Spring Cottage from the moment we walked in. It needed quite a lot of work but we knew it had potential. For a Cotswold cottage, it's a fairly large and it's so light and airy. It is in such a lovely location, being just a short stroll into the village, also it has a lovely south facing garden with direct access onto 'The Naight' which is a large playing field and park where Millie, our 4 year Westie can had a good run around. We especially love being able to walk into the village in the morning to get fresh bread and croissants from the bakery for breakfast. In the evenings we love to walk along the river and have a drink and sit outside one of the bars. The village takes on such a calm and peaceful atmosphere at the end of the day when most of the day visitors have headed home.

A fantastic base for a holiday
This cottage was everything we wanted and so much more. The information email before arrival had lots of useful info and listed many of the items included at the cottage which saved us having to pack more then needed. The 2 pint of milk and tea, coffee and sugar were very welcome after a long drive. The chocolate and fresh flowers were lovely touches. The place was spotless and you would never know that dogs often stay too.
The town was a short walk away and easy drives to other beautiful places to visit.
We had a perfect Mother (87) and daughters (66 & 55) relaxing break away together.
Only slight disappointment was that mum couldn’t manage the stairs to the loft room with the en-suite but my sister had that and mum had the double with me in the singles.
Wish the weather had been better to enjoy the garden more but maybe next time.
Look no further, you should just stay here
The pictures do not do the property justice. The whole house is lovely, very well maintained and spacious inside. We didn’t realise how big the lounge/dining:/kitchen area was until we arrived.
You are a short walk from the town and an easy drive from many others small villages in the Cotswolds. We will definitely be staying again!
Gorgeous cottage - would recommend
Spring cottage is even prettier than the pictures. The attention to detail is noticable and everything is very clean. Lynsey is very responsive and helpful. We had a great stay and would definitely go back if we are ever again in the area.
Beautiful cottage and perfect location to visit the Cotswolds
Everything in the cottages was perfectly ok. Everything of which you can think, is available. Our daughter also loved the playing field which was just reachable via a door in the garden, so perfectly safe as well. And on top of this, it is a perfect location to visit the Cotswolds.
Lovely stay at Spring Cottage
Beautiful cottage and garden. A comfy stay. Our daughter loved having a park at the bottom of the garden. Quick walk into the village. A pub across the road which is always a bonus! Great location to explore the Cotswolds.
An immaculately clean, comfortable, cozy home with a perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds. Good restaurants within walking distance. We stayed in Spring Cottage for two weeks and loved every minute of it. Thanks Lynsey and Darren for all your efforts to make our stay comfortable.
