    It's in a perfect location to get around and close to the beautiful Bourton on the Warer. We would definately come back and would also recommend to others.

    Off road with parking, very quiet. It had everything we needed and more. The bed was so comfortable I would like to know what the mattress was!

    However, upon arrival the bin inside the cottage had not been emptied, and when cleaning prior to departure we realised there was no vacuum cleaner, as stated. But a lovely cottage in a fabulous location.

  • "Lovely week at Bobble Cottage - small but with everything you need."

    Sits in a quiet courtyard with small space to sit out in, and we took our ‘spike’ to allow our small dog to join us on his lead. Plenty of dog walks from the front door for both short and long walks. No problem with parking our VW Golf in the allocated space with three steps up to the door. Main area for improvement is a bit more info please - from working the heater to recycling options to local walks / dog walks to avoid it being the middle of the stay before you work it all out for yourself!

    We're delighted to hear you and your 4-legged friend had a wonderful stay. Thank you for sharing your comments, we will review the information in the welcome pack. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

    It was very clean and well equipped with all we needed. WiFi & Tv good. The lack of garden space or green space close wasn't ideal for our dog, but walks are nearby via a narrow pavement. Parking is close via 3 steep steps. We really enjoyed our stay thanks to the owner

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Bobble Cottage and hope you had a wonderful Anniversary. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "I thought the location of the property was great ."

    I liked the look and style and found the bed to be very comfortable. I was disappointed when I turned up at the cottage and saw the front courtyard was not dog friendly as it was not enclosed and there was no back garden to let them out safely . I think if a property is described as dog friendly it should be just that not “dogs tolerated “ which is what I felt Bobble cottage was. The rules about the dogs not being allowed upstairs or on furniture was a bit much . Then there should be a stair gate to stop them going up there then . I think the property could do with a make over as it was a little tired. The oven needs replacing ( I had to call the office so they could send the maintenance man out twice ). On my first night of arrival I was hungry and looked forward to cooking my dinner and when I realised the oven wasn’t working I was again disappointed. The residential neighbours asked me to park further back from the steps . I’d remembered the first time but had forgotten . We got chatting and they were clearly unhappy with the cottage being holiday let . The parking was a problem as it IS too narrow for most cars. I wasn’t able to open either of my doors to unload one time when I parked there. I had two small dogs with me and it was very annoying. I think if the things I’ve mentioned were addressed it would be more worth the money it costs to stay there . As it stands it’s not. I stay in a lot of air b & bs etc and this one was not up to scratch I’m afraid .

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. We can only apologise for the issues you encountered during your stay and appreciate your suggestions for improvement. These will be taken into full consideration, and we thank you for bringing these to our attention. Best wishes, Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "This is a very lovely and comfortable cottage."

    everything was very clean and we were provided with tea/coffee/sugar and milk on arrival which was nice. This cottage is especially convenient for visiting most of the Cotswold area Bourton on the water is a 5 minute drive away or a 30 minute walk, Stow on the Wold is 20 minutes by car, as is the lively Burford with its wildlife park. We stayed for a week and would be very happy to book this cottage again. There is everything you need, including cleaning items, plates, cutlery. pots and pans, tea towels etc You are allocated a parking space right in front of the cottage and we parked with no problem in our Ford focus, if you have a large vehicle, you can park outside the village hall which is a short stroll away. We would really recommend this cottage for a very peaceful and convenient place to stay.

    Thank you so much for the amazing feedback. I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us and ventured out to the beautiful nearby areas. I can only hope to welcome you back. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Keeping to the 6pm check in time, was difficult, not much to do late afternoon with a carful of luggage. The heating system was difficult to understand. For dog owners, the Visitor Information Centre in Bourton has a very cheap booklet on dog friendly local walks - highly recommended.

    Thank you for your feedback. The cobwebs have been brought to the attention of the housekeeper and we apologise for these having been missed. There should have been instructions for the heating in the property but we will of course check on this and ensure instructions are available for future guests. Thank you for your suggestions, also.

Change door opening side on fridge. Wonky door on shower. Hoover useless. Parking space is very narrow. Small things to criticise I know, but easily rectified and would make the cottage perfect but that didn’t spoil our lovely stay.

  • "The property is lovely!"

    The bed and sofa are super comfy which was great. The property was clean on the surface but it did need a deeper clean, for example dust and fluff under the furniture and on plug sockets. We also washed all of the cutlery, plates, cups etc because there were crumbs in the cutlery drawer and on some of the knives. Due to the covid rules it was required to strip the bed, once I'd done so I saw many stains on the duvet itself! Considering the fact we are in the middle of a pandemic I think the property should be deep cleaned and old duvets etc replaced. It would also be useful to have some more cupboard space in the kitchen for our own food etc, I had move loads of stuff around just to get one shelf for our things! The location of the property is perfect, very close to all the beautiful little towns including bourton on the water and stow on the wold. It is also close to a lovely national trust walk and a zoo where we could take our dog!

    Thank you for your feedback and apologies that the property was not up to the high standard of cleanliness we aim to achieve every time. We will discuss the issues raised with housekeeping. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Bobble Cottage provided a great base for our first visit to the Cotswolds, it may be small but it is perfectly formed."

    It was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was good & there was all that you could need in the kitchen utensils wise. The milk, cookies & ice in the freezer on our arrival were a nice touch & it was handy being able to access Netflix on the TV. We enjoyed some glorious weather during our week & enjoyed sitting out in front of the cottage to soak up some late afternoon sun. The location is super central for Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow On The Wold & all of the must see places in the Cotswolds. One thing worth highlighting with this property to help anyone booking in future is the allocated parking space, it is very narrow. We have a Ford Focus & it completely filled the space, my husband had to do some serious gymnastics to get out of the car once parked up between the other vehicles in the courtyard. You wouldn’t get a bigger vehicle in to the space- I know there is a mention of alternative parking outside the village hall but there were vehicles already parked there so not a feasible alternative. Also the cottage would benefit from a proper wheelie bin like the other properties in Bobble Court have- the small black bin by the front door was already 3/4 full when we arrived for our weeks break which left little room for our rubbish.

    Thank you for your feedback, The car park space allocated is big enough to park a normal sized car. I have parked there many times in my 4x4 and had no trouble. There is more spaces in the road nearby and also by the village hall that is not far at all.I would advise you unload when you arrive and if you then find the space is too narrow just park by the village hall or in the nearby lane. Bobble is delightful and the perfect location to explore the Cotswolds, so please don't let the parking put you off. Property Owner

  • "As this area is so good for walking, I would have liked an OS map 1:25,000 scale to use and plot a walk, along with the other literature at the cottage."

    The information folder states to use the No. 3 refuse bin.... There is no refuse bin!! talking to the next door neighbour, he's quite upset that other cottage users have put their rubbish into his bin, or left the plastic sacks outside of bins. This then gets torn open by foxes / cats, and leaves rubbish strewn around. That's why our sack was left in the property. The toilet seat requires attention, as when used, the seat falls out of the fixing brackets!! Also, if the shower could be upgraded to a power-shower, would make the experience better, and perhaps for winter, a permanant heater installed in that room. The TV seemed to have NETFLIX, but I couldn't access this, although not a big deal for us, maybe others would be disappointed. All in all, we had a very enjoyable week there, and would consider returning.

The property

Bobble Cottage is a delightful Cotswold cottage, stunning and contemporary and, in our opinion absolutely ideal for couples looking for a weekend bolt hole.

The property is located in a quiet corner of the beautiful Cotswold village of Little Rissington and has off street parking for one car.

Internally the ground floor is open plan, with a welcoming cosy and warm feeling upstairs is a good sized bedroom with ensuite bathroom .

Bobble Cottage is presented to a very high standard with comfort central to its appeal.

As you can imagine there are great walks from your front door, either up the hill where you'll get some stunning views or alternatively you can walk down the hill towards Bourton on the Water, which is approximately 30 minutes on foot or less than 5 mins in the car!

With such a central central location, it is an ideal base for enjoying the many National Trust gardens and properties.

A gorgeous cottage!

About the location


Bourton-on-the-Water 2 miles; Stow-on-the-Wold 5 miles.

Little Rissington is a quiet village outside the popular destination of Bourton-on-the-Water, Little Rissington is worth visiting for its 12th century church with its moving memorial to RAF servicemen. The village styling is typical for the Cotswolds; small cottages fronted by flower-boxes.

Associations are always made between the village and RAF Little Rissington, the air base which was located relatively close. The base is gone now, though buildings still remain and have now become the new village of Upper Rissington, and the aerodrome is now used for hang-gliding.

The main attraction is the 12th century church, which lies apart from the village up a short path to the west of the road. On Pound Lane is a row of Cotswold stone cottages described as perhaps the best example in Gloucestershire of 17th century vernacular building.

Building work nearby internally from 15/1/20-31/1/20. There might be some noise.
Note: No cot or high chair supplied.
This property requires good housekeeping bond of £50
Note: There is parking directly in front of the property, marked No. 3, but please be aware it is a small space only suitable for smaller cars. Additional parking is available outside the village hall which is a 2 minute walk from Bobble Cottage.
Please Note: The upper part of the stairs does not have a handrail, but there is a ledge that can be used instead.
