“4th stay - just keeps getting better.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

It's tricky to continue to find adequate adjectives to praise this fantastic accomodation without repeating ourselves but this year we can comment on the fab new garden furniture, the improved kitchen (which we didn't even feel needed improving!) and the addition of free Wifi.
Jo continues to keep Tilly's at an extremely high standard. It's spotlessly clean (despite having doggy guests) and she provides every necessary convenience. Lovely welcome basket is much apppreciated, too!
As we visit every year, we feel settled and 'at home' within seconds of walking through the door. On our first visit we wondered whether, being as it was a terraced property, we may experience noise from the neighbouring cottages but we never have - very peaceful!
Although we're skipping a year next year (going abroad) we'll be back for 2016, 2017, 2018...............and so on!
HIGHLY recommend this property!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A truly delightful cottage, we have rented cottages in the past, but this was undoubtably the best!
When we arrived, the cottage was spotlessly clean and although is dog-friendly, there was not a hint that dogs had ever been in it!
It was a lovely touch to have a welcome pack (wine, chocs and dog biscuits too) which were all enjoyed!
It had everything you could possibly want, we had a lovely week, thank you.

Tilly's cottage had everything in it you could possibly need. There was a welcome basket of biscuits and wine waiting for us on arrival which was lovely. The cottage was extremely clean and warm, with lashings of hot water. Everything was to a very high standard - the bathroom and kitchen in particular. The cottage is in a very quiet location, but only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of the village with its numerous restaurants and pubs. There is also a very well equipped Londis supermarket. The two parking spaces are easy to negotiate, and are tucked out of the way, round the back of the cottage. All in all, a very good experience and I would definitely book again.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

A beautiful place to stay. Minutes from the village. All you would need to get around, OS maps, local map. A welcome pack on our arrival, also a package for the dog. The cottage is a superb place to stay, comfy, clean and well maintained and everything you would need to make your stay stress free. Will certainly stay again.

“a lovely, relaxing Cotswolds retreat”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Just returned from a very relaxing week at Tilly’s Cottage, over the Christmas holiday. It’s a delightful cottage, with everything you could possibly want inside – virtually home-from-home – and just minutes walk into Bourton-on-the-Water. To say that dogs are welcome is an understatement - dogs are totally taken care of at Tilly's from feeding bowls, a towel and a welcome present too. Once we got the hang of it, the wood burner was great, the beds were comfy plus the added extra of a Christmas tree, lights and other decorations. The welcome basket of goodies was a lovely surprise and the Christmas presents under the tree were an additional bonus – thanks for Jo and Ian for helping to make our Christmas so festive and relaxing - and to Ian for resolving the TV problem so quickly! Would recommend the fish & chips from the Windrush Cafe in Bourton and the food in Huffkins in Burford was plentiful and delicious.

“2nd visit, can't wait for the 3rd!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

This was our second visit to Tilly's and as soon as we arrived we remembered why we fell in love with the cottage the first time - clean, comfortable, great location. Can't wait to book our 3rd visit.
