A pretty Grade II listed three-storey cottage built from traditional Cotswold stone.

It was originally built in the late 17th Century and has been lovingly restored, whilst retaining many original features.

This is a new holiday let for Spring 2014, with new furniture & soft furnishings.


The cottage is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac of historic properties, complete with pretty village green, in the heart of Bourton On The Water, often referred to as "The Venice of The Cotswolds".

The only thing that will disturb you is the sound of birdsong.

You can see the River Windrush from the entrance to the cottage and it's within five minutes walk of all the village attractions and amenities, including Birdland, The Maze, Motor Museum.

The village is a joy to explore, with all the quaint shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Many countryside walks start from the village, including walks to traditional pubs.

We can arrange a pick-up from a local railway station if you want to leave your car at home.


Free wifi, central heating, on-demand hot water, garden.

There is no charge for gas & electricity.

As in most old cottages, there are a few areas of reduced height and you may have to "duck" on the stairs if you're tall. You'll soon get used to it.

Welcome Pack includes wine, orange juice, milk, filtered water, butter, filter coffee, instant coffee, a selection of teas, jam, bread, cereals, fruit / snacks, fresh flowers.


Fully equipped, including large fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, iron & ironing board, gas hob & electric oven, microwave oven, toaster, kettle, cafetiere, dining table & four chairs (extra fold-up chairs provided). Stable door to garden.

Both bedrooms have Sealy posturepedic mattresses, hypo-allergenic duvets & pillows, mattress & pillow protectors, and a choice of medium or firm support pillows. All bedding, fluffy towels and huge bath sheets are provided.

There is space to store luggage under the beds and in the cupboards in the twin bedroom.

The king size bedroom on the first floor has a 5ft bed, bedside units, wardrobe, chest of drawers, window seat. Views across the garden.

The twin bedroom on the second floor has two 3ft beds, wardrobe, cupboards with shelves, bedside unit.

The room has several characterful old beams. Views to fields.

The entrance to this bedroom has reduced headroom, so you'll need to "duck" as you go in.


The garden comprises a stone patio, gravelled area and beds planted with flowers & shrubs. Ideal for enjoying an al fresco breakfast or a glass of wine after a walk across the surrounding countryside. It's a real sun trap.

The Central England/Cotswolds region

Bourton-on-the-Water is in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds. It's a great base for exploring the Cotswold region and beyond.

Only 90 miles from Central London, yet it seems a million miles away. The region has so many quaint, quintessentially English villages, with cottages built from honey-coloured Cotswold stone, set amongst gently rolling countryside.

The historic villages and towns of Lower Slaughter, Upper Slaughter, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Burford, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Cirencester and Cheltenham, with it's famous race course, are all within 18 miles of Bourton-on-the-Water.

Slightly further afield are Witney, Gloucester, Stratford-upon-Avon, Tetbury, Tewkesbury, Oxford, Bath and Bristol - all an easy day-trip away.

Visits to Blenheim Palace, Highgrove House and Gardens, Westonbirt The National Arboretum and Warwick Castle are all within 31 miles.

Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park is only 8 miles away & Cotswold Wildlife Park is 17 miles away.

Throughout the year the region hosts craft fairs, antique fairs & flea markets and regular farmer's markets.

Bourton on the Water

The village of Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as The Venice Of The Cotswolds, spans both banks of the River Windrush.

Bridges across the river link the individual shops, cafes, tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and attractions. A wander around the village lanes gives a feel of what life was like hundreds of years ago, with well-preserved traditional houses, cottages & churches. Within the village you'll find such attractions as Birdland Park & Gardens, The Cotswold Perfumery, The Model Village, Bourton Model Railway Exhibition, The Dragonfly Maze and the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection - all within a five minute walk of Lavender Cottage.

Many countryside walks begin in the village and there are several beautiful walks to pubs in the surrounding villages.

You don't need to use your car if you're simply looking for a relaxing break.

"Charming cottage in typical English village"

I went to the Cotswolds with a group of friends and stayed in this beautiful cottage. It was so cute and quaint. Having been newly refurbished, the cottage had modern appliances and fittings throughout whilst maintaining its charm.

Location-wise, it was a 5 minute walk to all the shops whilst at the same time situation of a quiet street. With lots of cute pubs and walks by lakes and rivers there was plenty to do during our stay.

I would highly recommend staying here and I am looking forward to my next visit.

Thank you for your kind comments. We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Lavender Cottage & look forward to seeing you again. As you're from New Zealand, but currently living in London, we're glad that you were able to step back in time and discover the beautiful Cotswolds.
