Picturesque Cotswold setting

Plenty of sightseeing opportunities include the model village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdworld and Cotswold Perfumery. There are many individual shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy as well as a gentle stroll by the water’s edge. Other nearby honey-coloured villages well worth a visit include Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh with its famous Tuesday market and Chipping Campden. The city of Gloucester, with its magnificent cathedral and tomb of Edward II is within easy reach, as is the Regency city of Cheltenham with famous racecourse.

    The cottage was well equipped, warm and clean. Could do without the little carpet mats and the sofa covers!

    The cottage needs updating. Twin beds need new mattresses. Oven door seal needs replacing to stop water going on floor. Fantastic location good parking. Nice sofas in lounge. Plenty of bathrooms. Enjoyable Holiday.

    On first viewing the property appears to be lovely, however when examined more closely there are things which could be improved. Please see list below: 1. The covers on the furniture were irritating and uncomfortable. 2. The mats all over the house are also irritating, keep moving and are a trip hazard. 3. The promised welcome pack turned into a box of Lidl chocolates. 4. The welcome card was addressed to the wrong people. 5. There was mould in all of the bathrooms. 6. There was an unpleasant odour in the dining room/sun room. 7. There was an empty crisp packet under the chair in the living room. 8. There was no cafetiere. 9. The wording in the welcome folder was abrupt and implied that visitors should use the back entrance to the property. Overall enough to make one feel that they weren't really welcome at all.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry you didn’t find Rosemary Cottage to your liking. We would respond to your comments as follows: 1 and 2: The covers and rugs are a necessity. The leather suite needs an element of protection and there is no other way of doing this. The offending rugs could have been taken up and stored for the duration of your stay if this would have improved the quality of your stay at the cottage. 3. There are several items included in the Welcome Pack but the chocolates are not one of them. They are a personal little gift from us as Owners to our guests which is not obligatory. Whereas I acknowledge that the chocolates vary from time to time, there is no lack of quality in what we leave; it is down to availability at the time. I take great exception to your comment. A plentiful supply of tea, coffee, sugar and sweeteners are left on the kitchen worktop, along with cotton buds, make up pads and quality soap in all the bathrooms and the cloakroom. 4. The Welcome Card was an unfortunate mistake. We like to leave a personal welcome card for our guests and this was the only time we have ever got it wrong and we are truly sorry for this. 5. The bathrooms are treated for any mould and repainted, if needed, every three months. We are due to do this the first week in December. I fail to see how they could all be as bad as you suggested. 6. We have had the “odour” in the dining room checked and nothing could be found. 7. Our housekeeper is very thorough and we are surprised to hear about the crisp packet. We are sorry that this was missed. 8. There are two cafetieres in the kitchen cupboard, one small and one large. 9. We have had guests staying at Rosemary Cottage for many seasons and never before have we been told that our Welcome Pack is unwelcoming. We have guests who come every year which indicates the opposite. The folder is compiled so as to be informative and concise, containing instructions for use of appliances etc. and suggestions as to how to get the best out of Rosemary Cottage. At no time did you contact us, or our housekeeper, to say that there was a problem. We would have gladly shown you where to find the containers marked tea, coffee and sugar (next to the kettle) and where the cafetieres were kept. Other arrangements could have been made for the rugs and covers. I feel sure that most of your problems could have been resolved easily. We truly care about our guests. This is why I took the time to telephone you when I read your review to clarify the problems you had encountered. Sadly, this was a particularly unpleasant encounter following your very unfair assessment of the cottage.

    We had a really lovely week at Rosemary Cottage. There was ample room for five adults and a toddler. The two or three minute walk into the centre of Bourton on the Water makes the cottage in an ideal location. Also the parking for three cars was a huge advantage.

    instructions to the cottage from the High Street very misleading - there is a simpler way than that given to us. Stairs quite steep for elderly people and situation of downstairs toilet next to the dining table not really suitable

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The directions provided through Cottages 4 You are very simple to follow as we are situated a very short distance from the High Street and Rosemary Cottage is very clearly marked. From the road you are able to pull on to the front parking space with ease and it has never previously been a problem for guests. I can only assume that you used a Satellite Navigation system which can be misleading. The stairs are not excessively steep and a handrail has been placed on both sides of the stairs to the first floor to help anyone who feels they need extra support. Our eldest guest to date was 93 and he coped with the stairs without a problem. The issue with the position of the cloakroom is again something which guests have never complained about before. We have a total of 4 toilets in the property and so there are plenty to choose from. Thank you for your feedback.

    We all had a wonderful time over the Christmas period. The cottage was very warm and decorated with a tree and various decorations. We had a lovely welcome from the 'caretaker' and the chocolates were lovely. Thank you
