Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What an amazing, beautiful & peaceful place. This cottage is perfect, the attention to detail is incredible, so comfortable, thoughtfully & sympathetically appointed. We needed to recharge our batteries & this place is absolutely the right spot for it. We wanted for absolutely nothing from the minute we arrived until we left. The added bonus was the crystal blue, out door swimming poor which made us feel as if we were in another country all together. Philip & Stephen were so charming, genuinely welcoming & helpful. Wished we could stay for ever. Thank you.

Stephen and Phil are fantastic hosts they couldn’t make you feel more at home or welcome if they tried! The two dogs are fantastic company and have lovely temperament and natures we do miss them a little from our stay at the cottage! The cottage was beautiful very clean tidy and very functional offering you everything you need to cook clean and wash your clothes! The en-suite makes the perfect touch to the bedroom and is again very clean and modern! The scenery and location of the cottage is perfect the lovely walks you can have along the riverbank or to the local towns which have plenty to chose from in places to dine! The weekend was perfect for me and my partner we enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this cottage and Stephen and Paul. If your thinking of coming to Peterborough stop looking and just book here.

Wow! Where to start? From the moment we arrived, Stephen and Philip made us feel welcome and at home. Stephen gave us a tour of the property and the stunning grounds before helping us with our bags into our cottage and leaving us to get settled. The property was perfection! Stephen and Philip have not missed a single detail. The decor was pretty, modern and yet "cosy cottage/shabby chic" homely, all at the same time. The cottage was immaculate, not a speck of dust or dirt to be found. The bed was comfy and the bed linen was clean, resulting in three blissful night's sleep. Soft fluffy towels were also provided. It really did feel like we were at home. We were blown away at how beautiful the scenery was beyond the cottage. The river and surrounding fields provide great opportunity for exploring and walking. The pool and welcomed access into Stephen and Philip's garden on the river, were extra little details that only contributed to making our stay fabulous. The only negative was having to leave! We both look forward to visiting again. Many thanks to you both.

This is a rare find, that I actually don't want to share with the public, but of course I will! From start to finish a perfect experience. Stephen and Philip are the perfect hosts and obviously put their heart and soul into their business. The cottage was immaculate with everything we needed. The setting of the cottages is just beautiful. We had a perfect evening enjoying a drink by the river accessed through their garden. It's idyllic and unexpected. Probably the prettiest place in Cambridgeshire. We were lucky to enjoy a drink or two with them by the pool with their dogs on a wonderful balmy evening. Can't wait to go back.

We just stayed at coach cottage in nene river cottages in the lovely hamlet of water newton. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very well equipped with everything we could want. The addition of a lovely outdoor pool and loungers was fabulous and the walk only a minute to the riverside is so convenient and peaceful and idyllic a perfect setting. We took our small dog too who was welcomed. The hosts who live opposite cottages were very helpful and welcoming. Thankyou for a great 3 days we will be returning!!!

Stayed here post a business trip to London. My wife and I used the cottage as a base to visit local tourist spots nearby - Cambridge, Stamford, Rutland Water. Coach Cottage is a delightful, comfortable and beautifully done unit lacking nothing in attention to detail. The staff were very attentive, responsive and willing to resolve anything at any time for us, even organizing a driver to take us to Heathrow if we needed. We must highly recommend this place to stay.

Coach Cottage has been finished to a very high standard and comes equipped with everything you need for a self-catered holiday! It's bright and cheerful but also cosy, a great place for a romantic getaway. The cottage is in a lovely village surrounded by beautiful countryside and many walking trails. The owners are friendly and take good care of their guests: it's obvious that they really care about providing a quality experience for their guests! With a beautiful church in the village as well as other accommodation and entertaining space on the same property as Coach Cottage, this is a perfect setting for a wedding or other special event. Thanks for a great getaway, I will definitely be back!

Our stay felt like a home away from home. The hosts were fantastic and always available. The cottage had everything you could ever need, milk, tea, coffee boardgames etc. Location is idyllic, lots of things to see and do in the area, steam trains, river and beautiful country walks. We even visited the local church which is extremely close to the cottages. Perfect setting for a wedding.

About the neighbourhood
Water Newton is a small hamlet of around 40 houses, mostly built of 'Cotswold stone'. We have an historic church dating back to around 1100AD. The remains of Edward Edwards of Mutiny on the Bounty fame, are interred in the church. We have a working waterways lock which sees high River traffic during the boating season. The village is also famous for the discovery of Roman gold and silver in a field adjacent to Mill Lane, called the Water Newton Treasure (now in the British Museum).
