Find cottages in Bourton-on-the-WaterVisit Bourton-on-the-Water

One of the prettiest villages in England, Bourton on the Water is often referred to as the 'Little Venice' of the Cotswolds.

Straddling the River Windrush, Bourton on the Water has a series of elegant low bridges, nestled alongside neat tree-shaded greens and tidy stone banks. The perfect spot for a picnic or stroll, there is plenty to see and do here.

Bourton on the Water has more than its fair share of honey coloured Cotswold houses, many of them dating back to Elizabethan times and now home to independent tourist shops, unique gifts and cafés.

A cottage in this area provides the perfect base from which to explore the villages' past; at nearby The Model Village, there is an excellent miniature model that depicts Bourton on the Water as it was in 1937 using authentic building materials and local stone, or maybe embark on a fascinating journey of motoring throughout the 20th Century at the Cotswold Motoring Museum.

For a fun day out head to Birdland, home to a collection of penguins and exotic birds, while The Dragonfly Maze offers a huge hedge maze of puzzles and clues the whole family can try to solve.

Come and explore this delightful village for yourself, search for Bourton on the Water holiday cottages today.

Excellent touring and walking base
Only 5 miles from Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park

These welcoming and comfortable semi-detached holiday cottages are situated on a quiet road yet are only 5 minutes’ walk from the centre of Bourton. A large, enclosed, south-facing garden makes them ideal for a family visit. A favourite pre-breakfast pastime is to stroll, with or without the children, down to the main street to collect the newspaper and then feed the ducks.
Bourton is a quintessentially English village with traditional tea and gift shops, restaurants and olde worlde pubs. The gentle shallow River Windrush meanders sedately through the village, and on either side is the village green. Here you can sit, relax and watch the world go by.
If you feel more energetic, swimming, horse riding, as well as a children’s play barn and a host of other activities (including fishing and golf) are available locally. Visit Brum in the motor museum, the birds in Birdland and do not forget a visit to the pottery. Cheltenham, Oxford and Cirencester, as well as castles, stately homes and an arboretum are convenient for a day out. Approximately 10 miles away, Burford Wildlife Park is popular with visitors of all ages. Real log fires make for a cosy, romantic weekend, and in December, up until the twelfth night, Bourton is magical with the illuminated tree standing in the middle of the river. Twelve people could enjoy a holiday gathering of family and friends by booking both Oxleigh (ref HC17) and Honeysuckle (ref B4992) together.
