Inglenook Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms
Lovely Cottage in a Great Location
We spent a wonderful Easter weekend in Bourton on the Water. Inglenook Cottage is in a great location. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished with lovely comfortable beds & sofas and is well equipped for families. The little courtyard garden was a bonus & a lovely place to sit & relax. There are plenty of things to do in Bourton on the Water & it has a great choice of restaurants, cafes & shops. The riverside setting is stunning & whilst it does get busy, it’s still a lovely relaxing place to be. Although there isn’t any parking at the cottage itself, it wasn’t a problem as we unloaded the car at the cottage & then parked at Rissington Rd car park which is only a 5 minute walk along the river. We paid in advance online for the weekend (£6.50 p/day & free after 3pm) so it was no hassle. Overall, we had a fantastic weekend & we will definitely book Inglenook Cottage next time we come to stay here.
Thank you for the lovely review Louisa. We're thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful long weekend at Inglenook Cottage and that you loved the Bourton-on-the-Water location - It's such a beautiful part of the Cotswolds and perfectly located for exploring the local area! We hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful... WONDERFUL... Place...
This is a great "town home" style cottage only steps away from Windrush .... Water only steps away. Keeping in mind that we traveled during the hottest summer in years, and right in the middle of the height of tourist season(!); this was a great escape. No a/c for concerned westerners...but ample fans and cool nights made up for that... and though steps away from all the action...quiet retreat. The small back garden is a wonderful respite, great variety of entertainment (DVD, Satellite, Netflix and Cable)... kitchen was well stocked and all appliances were just right for a stay... though a bit "crushed" by the crowds and "toasted" by the heat... staying at Inglenook convinced us that we want to return to Bourton. A great place -- you won't be disappointed! Will not come during tourist season... really a problem as busloads of tourists would arrive in the morning and "camp out" by the river -- with large chairs, boom boxes, inflatable pools -- at the end of the day trash littered the banks. But...someone came by in the evening and cleaned it all up. Once the busloads left (around the end of the day) -- quiet... by 10 p.m. at night... completely quiet, beautiful setting, but we won't return this time of year, but we WILL return! Inglenook -- however -- is a great 2 BR cottage with VERY nice neighbors! (Candy shop... Salon... Tea House and Pub -- what else do you need?!)...
Thank you for your wonderful review for Inglenook Cottage, we're pleased to hear that you had a relaxing stay and we hope that you return again soon!
