  • "Very comfortable and well equipped."

    Very convenient location with parking (is necessary!). We enjoyed the patio, being private outdoors. Excellent area to visit gardens, and explore walks, village etc.. No need to bring oven gloves and tea towel as told. I'm not keen on the loose covers on furniture or so many plastic flowers! Recycling confusing but that's council not owner!

  • "Rosemary Cottage is very well positioned for all amenities in Bourton on the Water and also for visiting the many villages in the Cotswolds as well as larger towns like Oxford and Cheltenham."

    The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. We had a lovely stay.

  • "Rosemary cottage was in a perfect location and provided us with a good base for our holiday."

    There are a couple of things I think the owners could improve on to make it more in line with similar properties of a similar price ( the standard for holiday cottages in general is now much higher than it was ten years ago ). Firstly, invest in installing separate shower cubicles in the two bathrooms currently only with showers. Secondly, buy new easy clean settees armchairs etc for the lounge. Thank you

    T There are 3 bathrooms at the cottage for 6 people, one for each bedroom. One with bath and separate shower cubical, one with a bath and attached shower unit , and one with a bath. A lot of properties who cater for 6 people, of our standard, only have 2 bathrooms, and then offer an over bath shower attachment as a second facility also. There are structural reasons why more shower cubicals cannot be added to the cottage. It is difficult to strike a balance to accommodate all peoples requirements, but there is a choice, and most guests are more than happy with what we provide. All facilities are made clear in the cottage description. We have an Italian leather suite at the cottage that is of a high quality, and I'm not sure how we could improve on this by replacing it with an easy clean suite with washable covers. We treat our leather suite regularly to keep it up to standard. Thank you for your comments. Property Owner

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage which was very conveniently located being only a few minutes walk right into the heart of Bourton on the Water."

    The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The master bedroom suite was well laid out with a walk in wardrobe and en-suite and a very comfortable bed. The three bathrooms meant that everyone had there own. The only observation I would have is that there is only one shower, which is in the master bedroom en-suite, as the other bathrooms only had baths and so it was not convenient for showering in the morning. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rosemary Cottage and would definitely stay there again.

  • "The cottage has every facility you could want."

    it is ideally situated close to the town centre within easy walking distance. Easily large enough for family groups, plenty of space to relax. Best of all it has 2 allocated parking spaces.

  • "The only minute fault was the covers on the suite."

    These were loose and not fitted so spent most of the week on the floor or screwed up the back of chairs as impossible to keep in place.

    You didn't even need to get your car out if you didn't want to. The cottage was the type of place I wouldn't mind living in myself.

  • "Our first time at Rosemary Cottage, found it to be very clean and comfortable, only slight niggle was the lighting was poor, and perhaps could do with a couple of reading lamps by fireplace, and behind settee."

    Beds very comfortable which is a big plus, also the parking facility which is a bonus especially in Bourton. Overall very happy with the cottage, and plan to return in 2017.

  • "Very clean cottage ,beds comfy."

    Found the covers on the sofas and armchair an absolute pain.The furniture is lovely you cover it because of the type of leather which is probably not practical for holiday accommodation.Would also have liked hand towels or advised to bring our own.Mostly this was a lovely cottage in an excellent position so anybody who visits should be very pleased.

Set over three floors, the cottage oozes quality and charm.

From the front hall enter the elegant sitting room which boasts luxurious Italian leather sofas and chair, ideal for relaxing whilst watching your favourite film after a day exploring the area.

There is an exceptionally well-equipped kitchen, which has everything the chef of the party could ask for.

At the rear of the property is a dining room, which has a picture window overlooking the rear sunny courtyard, perfect for catching up with friends over dinner.

There is also a downstairs cloakroom.

Make your way upstairs to two lovely and beautifully furnished bedrooms, the master king-size double having the added benefit of a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bath, while the second double bedroom has fitted wardrobes and its own separate bathroom.

The second floor offers a twin bedroom, again with its own bathroom.

Outside, the rear courtyard is ideal for guests to relax in with a good book at any time of day and this can be accessed from both the dining room and through a side gate leading to the rear parking area.

The beautiful village of Bourton-on-the-Water is just a stroll away and offers attractions and amenities to suit all tastes.

For the walking enthusiast the Heart of England Way, Oxfordshire Way and Monarch's Way all run through the village.

About the location


Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out where you can enjoy a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.
