Further details indoors

Entering directly into the sitting/dining room with stone floors and rugs throughout the ground floor. There is a flat-screen TV, DVD player and radio/CD player. With ample seating for four people, this is a great room to relax in.

The dining area has a circular dining table and four chairs. From this area there is a staircase to the first floor.

The sitting/dining room leads into a large kitchen. The oak units have granite work surfaces and the very well equipped kitchen has a fridge with small freezer compartment, electric double oven and hob, microwave and dishwasher. Off the kitchen there is a side entrance lobby with gas-fired central heating boiler, washer/dryer and a cloakroom with WC and basin.

The first floor bedroom has oak furniture including two single beds and a wardrobe. Also on this floor is a small bathroom with corner bath and hand-held shower, basin WC and heated towel rail.

A steep staircase (hence may not be suitable for elderly or small children) leads to a second floor bedroom. With a vaulted ceiling, beams and views over the green this makes a very attractive room. It has a King Size sleigh bed, dressing table and hanging rail for clothes. This room also has a hand-basin.

Further details outdoors

The cottage is by the river and a minute's walk to the centre of the village and its amenities.

Although this property has no garden, the proximity of the river, riverbank and the green outside the cottage provide ample space to relax outside on warm sunny days.

Roadside parking is usually available in this quiet road.

The Central England/Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds are centred on the gentle slopes of the Cotswolds Hills and are officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the largest in England and Wales, and made up from parts of the English Counties of Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Somerset. We also include the county of Herefordshire. The region is popular with both the English and visitors from all over the world and considered by most to be quintessentially English.

The landscape is famous for its gentle hillsides (‘wolds’) and the drystone walls which wander between the fields, constructed with considerable skill and forming a architectural feature into which considerable conservation effort is expended. Within this countryside sit the famous cities such as Bath, the well-known towns such as Burford and Castle Combe and the hidden villages off the beaten track such as Painswick, WinchCombe, Biddestone or Woodstock which still hold secrets for the visitor to discover.

The buildings of the Cotswolds are a distinctive feature of the region. The honey-coloured limestone, sourced from the local hills is used for everything from the stone floors in the houses to the tiles on the roof, giving the village streets a unique, “English” appearance and ambiance.

What to See and Do

Visit the unspoilt historic church at Northleach which is often called the “Cathedral of the Cotswolds”.

Shop in the market towns and villages such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Tetbury.

Discover the manor house gardens and Hidcote Manor, near Chipping Campden, or Snowshill Manor, Near Broadway or the cottage gardens thoughout the villages of the Cotswolds.

Enjoy the stunning countryside on a walk through the villages and Wolds. One of the best ways to walk with confidence in the countryside is to use a Circular Walk, following a leaflet describing the route. This will provide a map with clear instructions and usually notes places of interest to look out for on your way. To explore some of the historic towns in the Cotswolds, why not spend an hour following a Town Trail taking in the architectural heritage and history written in stone, before stopping for a drink at a traditional pub or afternoon tea at a tea-room?

Depending on the time of year, there are numerous festivals and events ranging from Shakespeare festivals to Cheese Rolling!

Bourton on the Water

With the river Windrush running through the village and many bridges crossing it, Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds. The many excellent restaurants, pubs and shops and the many attractions including Birdland, the Model Village and the Motor Museum make Bourton-on-the-Water an ideal base to explore the Cotswolds.

"The best equipped and welcome cottage of the many we have stayed in."

In what must be our fifth holiday in Bourton, our stay at the Cottage was the most homely of all the places we have stayed. Given this visit was a cold, wet January much time was spent in the cottage and we always felt warm, comfortable and had plenty to do. The cottage has all the little extras you only miss when they're not there - milk, coffee, salt, dish washer and washing machine tablets. You can tell the owner has thought 'what would I want when I arrive?' and put all these touches in place. Even when the street had a power cut we could put our hands on candles, matches and a torch and had a lovely evening playing Scrabble by candle light.
The location is excellent, right in the heart of the village and the surrounding area is
brimming with great days out. Can't recommend The Cottage enough.

"Absolutely immaculate!!"

We have stayed in many cottages in Bourton but this one is in a class apart. Everything in the cottage is of the highest standard and excellent taste. The cottage is spotless. The location could not be better - right on the edge of the river. We did not want to leave and would have stayed longer but it was already booked. There can't be many cottages to beat this one. We will return!
