Self-catering holiday accommodation in Bourton-on-the-Water
Situated within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire is affectionately known as England’s answer to ‘Little Venice’. This exceptionally pretty Cotswolds village which straddles the tranquil River Windrush flaunts traditional English charm, boasting distinctive honey-hued cottages with steeply pitched roofs and charming cobbled bridges over the gently meandering river.
Days here can be spent enjoying rejuvenating strolls along the quaint stone banks of the river, getting wonderfully lost in the Dragonfly Maze and exploring the village’s eclectic collection of shops; from The Cotswolds Perfumery where you can create your own personal luxury fragrance, to independent jewellers and boutiques, sweet shops and gift shops selling handmade candles and pottery, you won’t be short of a souvenir or two. Re-fuel with a hearty meal at one of the village’s traditional inns, riverside tearooms or stylish restaurants, or lay out a rug and enjoy a relaxing picnic beneath the trees on the shaded greens.
Delight in family-friendly days out at Birdland Park and Gardens, the Model Village, and the Cotswolds Motor Museum where the classic childhood favourite ‘Brum’ now parks alongside other vintage motors. Just 20 minutes by car brings you to Hidcote Manor, Bourton House and Kiftsgate Court amongst others, or you can enjoy a wealth of outdoor pursuits in the spectacular surrounding countryside. Other great towns and villages to explore nearby include Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.
