About the Owner

We live in Lichfield in Staffordshire with our two sons aged 20 and 18. We love the Cotswolds as there is so many lovely places to visit and relaxing things to do. We particularly chose to buy a cottage in Bourton-on-the-Water as we love the convenience of being able to walk into one of the prettiest villages in England with it lovely shops, cafes and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have really enjoyed our stay at Spring Cottage. The weather has been gorgeous all week so we have made use of the beautiful garden and seating area. We will definitely stay at this fabulous cottage again. The Beecrofts June 2014.

What a wonderful cottage. Spring Cottage has everything you could want, not only the cottage but the surrounding area is beautiful. The weather has been amazing too - we really don't want to go home. You have done a fantastic job. I'm sure we will be back. The Fields July 2014

We want squatter rights to stay in this gorgeous cottage! Five stars isn't enough make it ten! The Philpott Party June 2014

Beyond excellent

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many cottages over the years but Spring Cottage is by far the best.

The description is accurate, but the actual experience exceeded expectations. The cottage was absolutely spotless and equipped with everything you could possibly need, even the things that you usually forget to pack like dishwasher tablets were provided, together with a selection of games, dvds and books. We were lucky with the weather and able to enjoy the activities in Bourton village and the lovely buggy friendly walks, having a great pub lunch at Lower Slaughter. With 2 toddlers one of the best features of the cottage was the safe garden which has direct access to a playing field and lovely playground through the safe secure rear gate, with no roads to negotiate.

Lynsey provided superb customer service and responded quickly and personably to all communications. The little extra touches she included made our stay very special.

We would definitely stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend Spring Cottage to our friends.

Superb Cottage Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lynsey and Darren's 2 bedroom cottage (Jasmine) last year which was superb having undergone a great renovation. Therefore we had very high expectations for Spring and we were not disappointed. The cottage has been renovated with great expertise retaining its Cotswold charm and warmth but with lots of modern features and has been tastefully decorated and is so clean. The location, as with Jasmine, is ideal just a short walk to the beautiful centre of Bourton-on-the-water but with the bonus of being situated in a quiet area of the town. Another bonus is the large garden which has a lovely patio and is totally enclosed and well maintained. Lynsey is always on hand to answer any queries and provide assistance and is always so helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending both Spring or Jasmine to anyone looking for a bit of luxury and a perfect location in the Cotswolds. We hope to return again

Highly recomended

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was an absolute delight and faultless in every aspect . It has been beautifully renovated with quality and tasteful furnishings, kitchenware and linen. It was spotlessly clean. Lynsey was so easy to communicate with and we appreciated the welcoming touches such as the fresh flowers.The location was ideal with easy walking access to the town and a very good pub on the corner.. Would not hesitate to return nor to recommend.

Fabulous cottage in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

Spring Cottage is a really lovely cottage. The interior has been very sympathetically furnished and decorated, a character cottage with modern facilities, that suits couples or families alike. Everything is of a very high standard, spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and more. The garden is really pretty and well furnished, it is a lovely garden if you want to eat outside. The location is just perfect it's only a few minutes walk from the centre of Bourton on the Water where there are plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes many of which are dog friendly. Thank you Lynsey for the extra special and homely touches you left us. We could quite happily live here! We can't wait to return later in the year for another relaxing holiday in beautiful Spring Cottage. It was everything and more than we expected, fabulous!!

5* Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage. Superbly equipped, lovely squashy leather sofas (I really want one of these), beautifully decorated, comfy, very comfy bed and pretty private garden.

This cottage is better than my house. When can I move in? Also has a super location - far enough out to be quiet, but within a few minutes walk of the town. Handy pub serving good food opposite (best to book as very busy) and paper shop just a few metres down the road. The Bakery on the Water is a must for fresh croissants and coffee in the mornings. All in all fantastic holiday and wondering when I can take another.
