Pear Tree Cottage is right at the heart of the beautiful village of Bourton on the Water but set back up a lane so quiet and not affected by the tourist bustle. The cottage is warm and comfortable, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We loved being able to put the gas stove on in the living room and get warmed up during a very chilly February Read moreweek. Having two bathrooms was also convenient. Only slight problem was only parking for one car but found free parking v nearby in Moore Road. Hide

Lovely authentic Cottage. But all comfort is available. Tall people must be aware the property is really authentic, meaning a bit low cealing in some chambers. In the middle of Bourton-on-the-Water. All local must sees reachable within short walking distance. Really enjoyed our stay!

This is a very cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The garden is dog proof. The location is excellent, just a couple of minutes walk to the High Street. We had a very good time despite the weather being wet on most days. There was plenty to see and do within the village and many good places to eat.

We stayed there at the end of August 2019. The cottage has everything you need and it is like being at home. It is very close to the town center but located in a very quiet cul-de-sac so we had a relaxing stay. The garden is small , it is a court yard but we have a small dog so it was not an issue at all. The court yard is secure so that the dog caRead moren not escape. Bourton on the water is a lovely village and with plenty of walks and I would recommend this cottage with no hesitation. Hide

A spotless cottage in a very quiet location just a moments walk from the centre of Bourton on the water. A great base for the Cotswolds, with loads of days out close by. the village itself was a bit too busy for us but nice to look around either earlier or later on in the day. The owner was very pleasant and easy to contact throughout.

A wonderful cottage with everything you need for a relaxed holiday. Shops, restaurants, pubs are all just a stroll away and still a very quiet location as the cottage is tucked away in a side street. Angela looked very well after us and we loved our stay here.

The cottage was very clean and had all the equipment required for our holiday. The location was perfect, it was away from the noise of the village which was just a minute away. Also we liked that the owner texted us to see if every thing was OK (which it was) and would like to thank her for the cake and the bottle of milk plus tea and coffee

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
