    • “We had a holiday at lavender cottage. First class cottage with top facilities. Very clean and comfy beds. Lovely welcoming owners. They helped us out with suggestions of where to go on a rainy day. We stayed with two teenagers and a two year old and a dog. Would definitely stay there again.”

    • “Excellent”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed with our son, his wife and our grandchild. It was the best self catering cottage we have ever stayed in. Relaxing (no outside noise) and with enough room to spread out a bit. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful and kind during our stay. When arriving you need to look for the hosts house - the entrance to this and another rental property is through a double gate to the left (you won't see them until the electric gate has been opened. This security provides a very safe and secure area for young families with children. Managed to get a home delivery from Tesco and also two take away meals. Otherwise there is a community shop in the village and several supermarkets in Evesham - 10 minutes drive away.”

    • “A gorgeous cottage, decorated and presented to an incredibly high standard with a lovely welcome pack of groceries. A credit to the owners who were friendly and welcoming. Paddock for dog walks. Internet. Ideally situated in a quiet area for exploring the Cotswolds. The best cottage we have ever stayed in, and we've stayed in a lot.”

    • “A most enjoyable stay. My daughter and son in law, plus dog, asked us to join them on what was a super place to unwind. We had been under some stress and this was the ideal holiday to unwind. The cottage is all you could wish for - clean- well appointed - spacious - and the welcome starter pack of bread, butter, milk, wine and CAKE!!! was extremely welcome. An ideal place to visit Bourton on the Water, Evesham, Broadway etc. The owners made us so welcome one felt not so much as a guest, but friend. We hope to be able to go back next year.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Lavender cottage - it is spotlessly clean, spacious,and very comfortable.The owners home adjoins the cottage and they are both very friendly and helpful. Parking is easy and secure and despite the cottage being near to a main road it Is surprisingly quiet when sitting in the garden. It's a great base for exploring the Cotswolds or the Malvern Hills which themselves are less than 30 miles away. We escape to the Cotswolds at least twice a year and this cottage is most definitely one that we will return to again. Ps this cottage is obviously very popular so if it is unavailable there is a smaller cottage next door.”

    • “A wonderful spot to explore the Cotswolds with four good friends and a dog. We found Lavender Cottage to be a lovely appointed cottage and we used all the spaces from the lovely garden to conservatory as well as the three bedroom house. Jenny and Martin made us feel so welcome and greeted us with a very special welcome pack far above all others ever received. Our week flew by as we walked the beautiful surrounding area.”

    • “The owners really have gone out of their way to make this cottage a home from home. It was immaculate throughout and was finished to a very high standard. There are lovely dog walks in the surrounding areas and there were little extra touches in the cottage for our furry friend - dog chews,poo bags & bowls. There were treats for us too - home made cake, milk, wine etc. We would definitely return !”
