Further details


The Cotswolds region

Really too much to tell you here about the Cotswolds. More details about the wider area can be found at


Regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England, Bourton-on-the-Water has more than its share of Cotswold houses and cottages, many of them three hundred years old, some dating back to Elizabethan times four hundred years ago. There is plenty to see and do here and we hope this site and the information within makes your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Local attractions include:

The River Windrush is spanned by several attractive small road and footbridges. During the summer, a game of medieval football is played with goalposts set up in the river itself. Two teams play with a standard football, and a referee attempts to keep order. Crowds line the banks of the river, and the aim is to score as many goals as possible (while getting everyone else as wet as possible).

The model village is a 1:9 replica of the village and includes a model of the model village itself (a model within a model). It was built by local craftsmen in the 1930s, and opened in 1937.

The Model Railway.

The Cotswold Motoring Museum (home of Brum).

Birdland, an ornithological theme park, which is a collection of birds, from penguins through parrots to passerine (perching) birds and a large pond full of salmon which can be fed by the public. There are bird-of-prey displays and a penguin feeding demonstration.

The Dragonfly Maze

On the fourth Sunday of each month, there is a farmers' market.

Long-distance footpaths and local walks start, finish or pass through Bourton-on-the-Water. One such route that begins its 100-mile route north is the Heart of England Way.

The Fosse Way Roman road also runs close by.

"Fantastic cottage, with loads of lovely touches"

I would highly recommend Candlemas Cottage if you're looking for somewhere in the Cotswolds to stay. The cottage, though small, is fantastically well furnished and the space is extremely well utilised. The decor is also great with lots of quirky touches that really make it feel like home. The shower is fantastic as well, something that self catering holidays are often let down by.

The location, right in the heart of Bourton on the Water is great for convenience and not at all noisy.

I will definitely be re-visiting in the future.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our lovely village, and cottage. To add to your review we have indeed replaced the washing machine with a washer dryer, for those days when the weather is not so good to hang the clothes out !! Hope to see you again soon.

"Nice Cottage,But Not Luxury"

We stayed at Candlemas cottage in July,and as described it is in a good location .Though i would like to point out ,on 3 occasions during our stay.We had to park over night at the coach park,at a cost of £7.50 a night.We went out every day and allways encountered problems trying to find a parking space.on our return.
The cottage was clean in most places,though there were a few cobwebs in the kitchen .We also felt that the court yard wanted a good tidy up .There were no covers on the garden furniture,so when it rained it wasnt possible to sit on it later as it didnt dry out.Towels were provided,but after i few day's i felt they needed a wash.There was only room outside to hang a few items,so i had to put them in the kitchen on an airer.The cutlery provided had plastic (resin ) handles.Some of these were rather worse for wear and we felt not very hygenic .
Overall we had a nice stay at the cottage,the bed's were comfy.Allways plenty of hot water.

Thank you for your review. We do advise all guests that there is no allocated parking at the cottage, and indeed advertise as such. Generally unreserved parking can be found quite easily in the evenings, within 1 or 2 minutes walk of the cottage. The coach car park is the most expensive car park, if you choose that option. Towels are provided for guests, and of course guests are able to wash them after use if needed, or can request more towels if needed. We pride oursleves on the cleanliness of the cottage, and are sorry you found some cobwebs in the kitchen. Cutlery has been already been changed, and garden furniture is due for replacement this year. The Courtyard garden is desribed as small, and as such , in the middle of summer, when the plants are fully grown, and in bloom, space is further restricted, although there is plenty of room to sit around the table. Please see our website for further positive reviews on this lovely cottage.
