  • "Generally happy with our stay."

    The cottage was spotless and it’s very central for the Cotswolds. The owner was very helpful and Bilbury was gorgeous. The only complaint was the mattresses in both rooms. They were so hard you could feel each spring. We had to leave a day early as my back pain was preventing sleep for several nights.

    Thank you for your review. It was nice to meet you both and we are pleased you enjoyed Bibury. We are disappointed to hear that you did not sleep well owing to the firmness of the mattresses, which exacerbated your back condition. You will appreciate it is very difficult to choose bedding in holiday accommodation that suits every guests needs. We hope you feel better now you are home. Property Owner

    Not only was the location beautiful but the cottage itself was spotless, comfortable and simply perfect. Everything you could need was there and they kindly even provided a cot and linen for my baby boy.. he, like myself and my mother, had very good & comfortable sleeps and we would not hesitate to return here.

    We very much appreciate the wonderful review following your stay in Gables Cottage.

  • "A very nicely appointed cottage with all you need."

    Well located in Bibury, 2 minutes walk from the Catherine Wheel pub, which was really good, the Swan Inn was closed to non residents. There is some road noise, more noticeable at night if you like the windows open. The owner lives next door in the B&B and was more than helpful. This is probably the only self catering establishment we’ve stayed in, that when they state they do extra cleaning for COVID, they’ve actually done that. Too short a stay, next one will be longer

    Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Gable Cottage and your kind comments are very much appreciated. It is pleasing that our continuing efforts regarding cleanliness of the property are recognised .. thank you. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you both back in the near future. Property Owner

  • "Generally speaking the cottage and facilities are excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The only area we feel could be improved is the shower the temperature of which varied. Also for older people the access over a high bath could be difficult. From our point of view a walk in shower rather than a bath would be preferable.

    Thank you for your feedback. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Gables Cottage. We really appreciate your honesty on issues you encountered during your stay and will take your suggestions for improvement into full consideration. We hope to welcome you back to the Cottage any time in the future. Property Owner

About the location


Burford 9 miles; Bourton-on-the-Water 10 miles.

William Morris called Bibury ‘the most beautiful village in England” and today it is world famous as a village which best epitomises the English rural scene. At its centre is an outstanding Saxon church. So important is the village architecturally that the National Trust is closely involved in its preservation - Arlington Row, a row of weavers cottages was restored by the Trust in the 1970s and its distinctive roofline and gables are one of the most photographed scenes in the Cotswolds. The village has a selection of shops, pubs and tea rooms and a wider range of amenities are available in the nearby market town of Burford “Gateway to the Cotswolds”.
