  • "A perfect place to stay, exactly what we wanted, loved it, had everything you could need for a comfortable break, an exceptional property."

    Well placed for visiting the beautiful surrounding villages and NT properties. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you so much for some lovely feedback. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back again. Best wishes, Manor cottage Property Owner

  • "The property is beautiful, lovely layout and decorated beautifully."

    It was clean and it’s fully equipped too with all the crockery and cookware you’d need and we were even left a small milk in the fridge, some shortbread biscuits and there was tea, coffee, coffee pods for the nespresso machine, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, tea towels, kitchen paper - all the things I brought with me we didn’t need as it was all provided. There’s a tv in the living area and bedroom and both were smart tvs which worked great with the brilliant wifi. The hot tub is lovely, although wished it had more of a view - such as in the front garden area it’s a shame these are split areas although we obviously appreciated the privacy of where the hot tub actually is but just not the view of the iron barn next door. It’s also great that it’s dog friendly, and it’s peaceful and quite remote but still close to main parts of the Cotswolds and attractions. The only downside was the extra charge for the hot tub - this is a premium property and it’s expensive to stay here as it is and I think the hot tub should have been included in the price as it’s unlikely people who are booking this property are not going to use it - for us it was the main reason for booking this particular property. I only found out about the £50 extra charge for the hot tub 5 days before we were due to arrive, which is lucky as I would’ve been disappointed had we arrived and the hot tub not been filled. It was not clearly advertised that there was an additional charge for the hot tub when we booked through booking.com (unlike the £25 dog charge which is clearly advertised and I rang up Sykes cottages after booking online to pay that fee - had I the hot tub fee been clearly advertised I would’ve paid this at the same time or probably would’ve booked a different property where the hot tub was included). This was very disappointing and really put a dampener on our birthday celebration minibreak before we even set off

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a feedback, we will check how clear the Hot tub extra fees are, and will take your comments into consideration, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and looking forward to welcoming you again soon. Property Owner

    The barn was well placed for visiting the well known areas in the Cotswolds. There were a few issues that were dealt with straight away by the management company, although it would be useful for future tenants to note that the plug to switch on the hob is located behind the microwave not the switch marked hob, it took a maintenance man a little while to discover this which made for a rather late supper on the first night!

    Loved the rural setting. Very clean. Large Bedroom with Extra large comfortable bed. Only negative, during winter months check in needs to be earlier. At 18:00 hrs it's dark so if unfamiliar with the area made it slightly difficult to find.

    Thank you for your feedback. The reason for our current check in and check out times is due to the extra cleaning needed to make each property a COVID safe environment. We hope to change back to our earlier times in the new year. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "Having stayed here 5 times we were slightly disappointed on this visit as property alleged ‘deep clean’ due to Covid and check-in time is 6pm to allow for this."

    However there was no evidence of a deep clean as property was quite dirty & dusty. The late check-in means we paid for our first days holiday but had no access until the evening. The property is looking very tired & needs refreshing & re-decorating. Also inventory is missing lots of items in the kitchen. Crockery is chipped & lots of odd glasses & not a pair that matches! We had a family party & expected at least a set of 6 glasses & unchipped crockery. It’s not a cheap property to rent & our expectations were not fully met on this occasion. We will return but the property needs some well needed TLC to warrant the price.

    Nice and quiet location, comfortable rooms and furniture, lovely hot tub. Only improvement might be seeing if there's a way to make it feel less exposed/more private when all the curtains are open down the side of the building... perhaps a high fence, hedge or similar? Also, was happy to pay extra for the hot tub but overall felt a bit expensive for what it was, especially as it was self catering.

  • "The cottage its self was OK, the location however is terrible."

    I understand that's no reflection of the cottage but I feel more could have been done prior to our stay to warn/advise on just how remote the location was. We researched the location online but getting a feel for the lack of taxis, buses and general public services is something you really don't find until you're there. What we did receive prior to our stay was lots of "if you need help then please ask" and "don't suffer in silence, we're here to help you" kind of thing. This obviously gave me the impression that people would actually help me should I have needed it. After struggling to find public transport we sought help via the overly 'we WILL help you' email to find a taxi. I got a response along the lines of 'yeah I know bloke, he's near you'. We contacted this nearby man who said he might be able to taxi us and he'd let us know. Nearby Taxi man, never got back to us and so I returned to the handy 'we will most certainly help you' email asking if there was anymore taxis or alternative transport available. I guess not getting back to people must be a good bit of Cotswold banter as this email was also ignored. I get it's a remote area, and I understand that public transport in the area may be limited but what I have no understanding for is poor customer service. To just not reply, I think is terrible especially after receiving an email encouraging to ask for help. Once again, the cottage was OK, not amazing but OK but poor customer service has overshadowed the whole experience for me and based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

    We are sorry to hear that the location of Park Bothy did not meet your expectations, we have changed the distances of the local facilities. Here at Manor Cottages we take all feedback very seriously and we apologise for the poor service you received. This will be investigated and we will take appropriate action to ensure this does not happen in the future. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Stylish and comfortable. Hot tub was amazing. Owners have taken great care to ensure everything is ready for you as you arrive. All essential supplies in the cottage including hand wash, towels, dishwasher tabs, coffee, tea, fresh milk, fine biscuits, logs, kindling, matches. Very well equipped with kitchen items, including electric whisks, rolling pin etc. Will definitely return - a perfect hideaway retreat. Couldn’t fault. The only thing that would improve it slightly would be a country pub within walking distance. Nearest pub I found was 3 miles. Otherwise a perfect break - thank you. I had an issue after leaving with something I had forgotten and Sykes were incredibly helpful too and went out of their way to ensure the problem was resolved. Would highly recommend both park bothy and Sykes cottages

    Very pleased to hear that you had such a lovely stay at Park Bothy. There is a lovely local restaurant less than 1.5m away called ' The Hangar' in Upper Rissington. We have been there and enjoyed it very much. Property Owner

  • "We were surprised not to find a visitors book -first cottage we have stayed in where there has not been one."

    Could have done with a rubber mat in the shower, as it was a bit slippery. Recycling info was rather confusing - council info left in the cottage did not tally with the various containers outside. Shame about the smell from the animal feeds manufacturer next door !! It would rather spoil the pleasure of using the hot tub. Those points aside it was a lovely comfortable cottage, very spacious and in a very convenient location. (If you decide to publish this feedback, you may wish to edit out comment about the smell!)

    Thank you for your comments, we welcome feedback so that we can try to improve the experience for our guests during their stay. 1) There is a visitors book in the cottage, we would encourage guests to let us know if they do not have anything they require or think should be there during their stay so that we can ensure it is provided. 2) We will review the shower / mat arrangements. 3) We will double check that instructions on the bins are clear, the council instructions stating which type of waste to put in each bin are provided, food waste goes into the two caddies and plastic and glass bins are all labelled. 4) There is not an animal feed manufacturer next door, there is a small farm shop selling bagged animal feeds, haylage and straw. There is a working farm next door and at times there may be country smells from muck spreading or similar, these activities should be for a very short period of time and we are sorry if the timing of this impacted on your enjoyment of the hot tub during your stay. Thank you for your other comments we are really pleased you found the cottage comfortable and enjoyed the location. Property Owner

  • "We arrived after a long , but trouble free journey and once in the location of the accommodation , proceeded to follow the detailed instructions sent by yourselves which we received with all holiday confirmation/ documentation."

    Unfortunately, it took us an extra 50 minutes to find the exact location. The instructions were detailed but wording extremely misleading ...i.e quotes the property is situated on a lane ? We therefore went down many lanes leading to either nowhere, farms or remote areas. It is clearly not a ‘ lane’ but a proper road. We had been in the correct loacation so many times , and bypassed it. If the instructions had stated that the property was simply located ADJACENT to Phipps feeds and OPPOSITE JB Auto Services, that would have been simply perfect and saved an awful lot of uneccessary mileage and frustration. First impressions are very important and we were disappointed to see that the door and window frames were covered in dust and cobwebs ( these had clearly not been brushed over for some weeks ) and all light fittings and Venetian blinds were VERY, VERY dusty. ( I did take photos as evidence if required ) Such a shame , as this shows such poor attention to detail from the cleaners. Not what one would expect when paying a premium for the property. It was extremely hot and stuffy in the property , even with windows and doors open , and although there was one very small fan provided in the bedroom, this was not ‘man’ enough . For extra comfort, especially at night , we purchased a large tower fan which was much needed. In the absence of air con, ceiling fans would have been an excellent addition and much appreciated ! The pillows were too soft for our comfort and no extras provided . To conclude , the property is in a fantastic location , and very well placed as a base for visiting other areas of interest . It has been built to a high standard and was very well appointed and the hot tub a valuable addition. Hopefully, our comments will be noted in an effort to make a few small improvements and adjustments for future guests.

    Thank you for your feedback on your stay at The Bothy. We apologise that you found the property very difficult to find, and have taken your suggestions on-board and updated the driving directions. We have put checks in place to ensure the cleanliness is to the highest possible standard.

About the location

BOURTON-ON-THE-WATER

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.
