Visit the pretty Cotswolds villages or even Oxford from this stylish cottage which lies close to Lechlade.

The village is skirted by the River Leach and is in an unspoilt Cotswolds location with many walks directly from the cottage to surrounding towns and villages, this cottage is a real delight to stay in.

Numerous museums are also nearby, such as the fascinating Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford and the Ashmoleum with its Egyptian collection of mummies and other world treasures. Interesting days out can be had at many working farms and bird sanctuaries. The Cotswold Farm Park near Guiting Power specialises in rare breeds of animals and offers seasonal demonstrations include lambing, shearing and milking. Slimbridge Wetlands Centre is an internationally important reserve and home to the world’s largest collection of rare and exotic water birds. Only a short distance from the cottage is the Cotswold Wildlife Park. This 120-acre park is home to a collection of animals from all over the world, many of which are threatened or endangered species in the wild.

    Lovely area, plenty of places to visit. Cottage a bit of a let down, cleanliness is not as I would have expected, dust, cobwebs, grubby sofas and dirty floor. I refused to use the frying pan! The water tripped a few times so had to reset it then wait for it to heat up or boil a kettle. The shower tray was very slow to drain away, it would fill up in seconds so had to keep switching the shower off so the water didn't overflow onto the floor. It was much darker inside than expected and the lighting isn't great, some of the light bulbs not working didn't help. The outside furniture was too grubby to use and the patio was covered in moss. I could go on... All that said we spent a lot of time out visiting the local area so still made the most of our holiday.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we are always pleased to receive constructive feedback. I must admit I was a little surprised by your comments, since the shower drain was fixed within an hour of you calling me. I am sorry that you did not mention any other problems when we spoke - I would have been delighted to investigate the water problem and to change the light bulbs if you had made me aware that there was an issue. I have passed your comments on to our housekeeper. She takes great pride in looking after Bowles Cottage, as our many positive reviews show.

    Very clean and well equipped cottage. Beds are very comfy. Anyone staying here would need a car to get out to the nearest shop but there are country walks on the door step.

    My sisters and I stayed for a relaxing weekend. The cottage is easy to find and has everything you need for a break. The open plan living and kitchen area is great, it has sonos and iPad music which means you are fully entertained. The cottage felt very safe and the owners were really lovely to speak too. There are walks nearby and some really good pubs in the local towns. We went in February, the cottage is very warm and we spent the evenings relaxing. We are definitely coming back!

    Very cosy and comfortable, well equipped cottage. We enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen and using the Sonos to listen to music. The beds are all very comfortable and the cottage is cosy and well heated. We had an issue with the boiler at first so it seemed very cold but as soon as it was restarted the problem was gone - phew! The location is very pretty and perfect for footpaths etc if you like walking. It is a bit of a distance from the town, so a car is needed to get around - local taxis are very expensive because you have to pay for their journey both ways. Perfect for a quiet and secluded weekend getaway.
