A Five Star, Gold Award apartments at the Cotswold Perfumery a Grade II listed building. In the very centre of Bourton on the Water, overlooking the village green and the River Windrush - a privileged position. A live webcam on our website shows the view from the lounge window. The main booking calendar showing availability is also on our website www.cotswold-perfumery.co.uk.
Bourton on the Water is so central it makes the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds. It is a beautiful area for walking, cycling or touring and not too far to the towns either - 15 miles to Cheltenham and just 25 miles to Stratford upon Avon.
There are two one-bedroom apartments completely self contained, thoroughly modern, yet retaining all the character and charm of this 300 year old building. The finish is to a very high standard with full central heating, mood lighting, Sky+ HD TV, Wi-Fi and so on. A downloadable inventory on the website gives full details.
For those who want a break with a difference, why not combine your holiday with a rare chance to learn how to make perfume? Learning how to make perfume is both fascinating and fun. We offer courses where you are shown from scratch how to create your own fragrance and take it home with you. No previous experience is necessary.
Two courses are available, usually held over the weekend. Level One, where you make your first fragrance, and Level Two where more advanced techniques are covered when you want to go further. Each course lasts for one day and is held at the Cotswold Perfumery in Bourton on the Water under the guidance of perfumer John Stephen, who takes you step by step through the process. John is the owner and Perfumer at the Cotswold Perfumery and has been creating fragrances for over 40 years - he has made perfume for the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
If the apartment is booked on a date that coincides with a one day Perfumery Course, a discount of Ă‚ÂŁ50 is given for each place taken on these courses. Learning how to make perfume as part of a holiday makes a break with a real difference.
Tenants also have access to our Perfume Garden - a secluded private garden at the rear of the Perfumery.TripAdvisor property ID 3924012...Read more
Left on 07/29/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 29, 2011Stayed Jul 2011
We can honestly say this is the best accommodation we've ever stayed in! Every possible consideration has been given when equipping the apartment - from the luxury of four different settings of 'mood lighting', air conditioning in the bedroom and speakers in the bathroom to the practicality of the kitchen, providing washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Detailed comprehensive information is provided in the apartment about the village and surrounding areas which was very useful. Views from the apartment windows are amazing and the perfumery garden is beautiful. John Stephen, the owner, and his staff are really friendly and on-hand if needed. The tour of the Perfumery Factory is a must too - it was really interesting and informative. And the Cotswold Perfumery Shop is there to buy your perfume and jewellery gifts to take home. Everything about our week in apartment 1 was memorable and we can't wait to return for another holiday there!
