  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Molly’s Bit."

    Lovely to meet you & your dog. Compact & bijou but enough for us & our daughter. The conservatory is lovely in the sunshine. Thanks

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your lovely feed back. Molly always enjoys having new friends to entertain. Property Owner

  • "We had a great few days, the property was very conveniently situated close to Stow and Bourton."

    The hosts were friendly but not overly so. The property had everything that you would need for a stay and was very clean tidy and comfortable. You could tell that though had gone into decorating it as it wasn’t just basically kitted out but all matched and was very pretty. I would definitely recommend staying there and if visiting the Cotswolds again would want to stay again.

    Thank you for giving us some lovely feedback. Property Owner

The property has everything you could need and the bonus of a lovely conservatory to relax in. It is superbly located to visit lots of lovely towns and villages and is quiet and peaceful. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Thank you.

    Had a lovley warm welcome from Dawn and Kelvin and their lovely dog Molly - The annexe is ideally placed for ease of visiting all the popular spots in Cotswolds Hiwever the accomodation is not up to the standard we are used to from Sykes - there was a lack of privacy in the conservatory so blinds were kepot shut, we could hear the movements and sounds from next door and tried to keep as quite as we could as we felt they could also hear us Whilst the accomodation was adequate it needs some maintenace and redecoration paticularly in the kitchen and bathroom where the paintwork is messy The photos do not show the front of the property or give an idea of how small the kitchen is - this would have deterred us from booking this property

    There is plenty of information provided by the host including an OS map of the area. The hosts, Dawn & Kelvin, live next door and are approachable and available if required but don't intrude on your stay. There's a pub within 10minutes walk and local shops in Bourton on the Water a 10minute drive. Stow on the Wold is 15 minutes drive with shops, pubs, a farmers market on Thursdays and walks from the town centre. If you fancy a day in Oxford, it's a 30 minute drive to the park and ride at Pear Tree. It's very reasonable, £5 for parking and 2 adult return bus fares for 16 hours. We would highly recommend this property and would stay again.

  • "This property is not very private."

    We were aware there was a shared garden but from the photos expected it to be bigger. Didn’t realise the conservatory was so close to their back door so when they sat outside we were looking straight at them. Also there was a locked door from the cottage lounge to their property which meant we could hear their conversations and dog barking. We knew the kitchen was compact but it was extremely small. If there had been a picture of the front of the property we wouldn’t have booked it. The private parking was a narrow space on a gravel drive. The shower was very weak and the bathroom needs updating and cleaning more thoroughly. The lounge is comfortable and cosy once the curtains are drawn and the TV is very good and drowns out the noise from next door,

The property

Bourton-On-The-Water 3 miles.

This cosy annexe is attached to the owner's home, in a peaceful, rural location in Church Westcote near Bourton-On-The-Water, within the Cotswolds AONB.

The property sleeps two (but also has an extra daybed in the double room for an extra person if need be) and is ideal for a retreat to the picturesque Cotswolds countryside.

The property has a driveway with parking for one car, and the entrance is down the side of the property through a gate.

Enter into the sunroom/ conservatory, where you can enjoy dinner with a view or curl up on the sofa with a good book and enjoy a moment of peace and quiet.

The compact but well-equipped kitchen has all of the necessary appliances to cook up delicious meals for your loved one, after which, you can relax in the sitting room on the reclining chair or sofa, enjoying the Smart TV and your favourite Netflix or Amazon Prime shows, as the warming electric fire heats the room.

Upstairs there is a spacious and bright double/triple bedroom with ample storage and an en-suite shower room, where you can prepare for each day.

Outside, there is an enclosed patio and lawned garden with furniture and a fire pit, which is shared with the owner and is a great space to sit out and enjoy your relaxing rural setting.

The picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water is known for its traditional stone houses, and offers attractions such as the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection, The Model Village, where you can discover a miniature replica of the village, as well as Birdland Park & Gardens, Greystones Farm Nature Reserve and Salmonsbury Meadows SSSI.

The village of Bledington is also nearby, offering a traditional pub and a 12th Century church, as well as being a popular location for walkers, due to its location within the Evenlode Valley and being part of the Oxfordshire Way route.

The market town of Stow-on-the-Wold sits on top of an 800ft hill, at the junction of the main roads running through the Cotswolds, including the Roman Fosse Way, which runs from Exeter to Lincoln.

There is a selection of shops and restaurants, as well the Medieval St Edward's Church, historic market square and Fosse Gallery, while the 17th Century Chastleton House, owned by the National Trust, is within easy reach.

Chipping Norton rests within the Cotswold Hills, with a museum and an open air swimming pool, as well as being close to the Fairytale Farm attraction and just a few miles away is the university city of Oxford, which is a must visit.

Another popular tourist attraction is also within reach - the Cheltenham Festival is a meeting in the National Hunt racing calendar, with race prize money second only to the Grand National; the four-day festival takes place annually in March usually coinciding with St Patrick's Day and is particularly popular with Irish visitors.

Molly's Bit is a lovely couple's retreat for exploring the Cotswolds, no matter what you choose to do.

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.
