“You will enjoy your stay here!!”
Reviewed 16 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Finally found time to review my stay at the Captain’s Cabin over Christmas, I stayed 7 nights, great little place to just relax and chill, right in the center of town but set back from the main road so peaceful and quiet, resent refurnished and done very well, the owners very helpful!! Local to all the pubs and restaurants, local supermarket only 1 minutes away with all you need to cook in if you want to and good range of wine, beer and spirits!!
Observations, not criticisms, very low ceiling, very steep stairs, in my option not ideal for children or people who have problem with stairs. Public footpath runs along the back of the property and often found children looking through the kitchen area window.
All in all ideal for a short break in the Cotswold’s
My background, my role is as the Facilities Manager at the London Fire Brigade Control Center
And oversee hospitably, Housekeeping, security and day to day running of the building that has to be kept to a 4 Hotel standard and has a keen insight into what is required to provide a good service and the owners of this property have done this!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Me and my wife stayed here for our first wedding anniversary which coincided with New Years eve and we couldn't of asked to have stayed anywhere better. Our stay in bourton and in captains cabin exceeded expectations. Firstly the owners Alison and Peter are very helpful. Any queries beforehand they answered for us promptly, especially when we asked about were was best to eat out. One of the restaurants they recommended was the rose tree and the food and service there was absolutely amazing. They were also very accommodating when we asked if we could check in earlier than stated which was good as we'd planned on getting there early to make as much use of our time there as possible. The cottage itself was perfect. It's situated down a quiet lane but still literally a 30 second walk from all the pubs/restaurants/shops, couldn't of asked for a better location. Inside the cottage is beautiful, very cottage like with all the wooden beams exposed, it really was amazing, especially when you get the log burner going too. It was very clean when we got there and had everything you would need when there. The locals there are very nice and we had a right good drink with some of them for New Years. Defo go see the model village of bourton, that's pretty cool. All in all we had a brilliant time and would defo stay there again.

“Cosy Captains Cabin”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Excellent holiday week at this small and very cosy cottage. Excellent wood burner and central heating, comfy couch, comfy bed, plus recently refurbished throughout which was nice also. The owners left us a bottle of wine which was a nice touch. Parking is easy for a small to medium car, larger cars will find it difficult. The small Village of Bourton has plenty of places to eat, the Duke of Wellington was our favourite, Chip shop and Chinese restaurant are also worth visiting. We spent a lot of our time visiting National trust properties and Blenheim Palace and had an excellent time. Cheltenham is worth visiting for the shopping and Cinema but watch out for the parking fees.
Overall a very relaxed holiday for a winter visit to the gorgeous Cotswolds.

Thank you so much for your kind review and please visit us again! We will be sure to add a note to the advert about the turning space so those with vehicles over 4.5 metres are aware (A well known make 7 seater SUV has no problem with the turn or space size).

“Lovely heritage cottage in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a lovely little cottage in the centre of Bourton. Beautifully renovated with everything you need for your stay. Very clean and comfortable, and close to shops, pubs and restaurants (though quiet as it's up a little lane away from the main road). Booking was easy through the website from Australia, and owner quickly responds to any questions. Very happy - thank you!
