The Central England/Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds lie mainly in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. Famous since medieval times for sheep-rearing and wool production they are now designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The magic of the Cotswolds is enhanced by the architecture. Beautiful old buildings of weathered honey-coloured stone delight the senses in every hamlet and village. Numerous tourist attractions, National Trust properties, first class restaurants, and cosy, traditional inns warmed by roaring fires, attract visitors from all over the world.

Bourton on the Water

Bourton-on-the-water, one of the most famous and prettiest villages of the Cotswolds, is located at the hub of the area so is an ideal base from which to explore. Known as "The Venice of the Cotswolds" it is the only one of the six famous Cotswold villages (Bourton-on-the-water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, and Stow-on-the-wold) to have a river meandering through the main street, crossed by small footbridges and populated by wildfowl. On all sides are charming Cotswold buildings weathered by age and softened by foliage. The centuries roll back and it is easy to envisage the appearance of an English village in a bygone era.

Places of interest in Bourton-on-the-water include Birdland, The Motor Museum, the Perfumery, the Model Village and the Maze.

"Fantastic stay in a beautiful house!"

This is now our second visit to Bourton on the Water and it certainly didn't disappoint! Welcome Cottage is an absolute delight, can not fault it. The house is in a perfect location, very short w… More

"Lovely cottage, great location"

We had a great stay as a group of nine ladies celebrating a special birthday. The cottage itself is beautiful, it was nicely decorated and in good all round condition. The communal space was ample wit… More

We are very sorry if you felt there was an expectation that you had to clean the cottage before you left.That is not our intention at all. The notice regarding the caretaker and her work is merely asking people to be considerate to her as it is a large cottage to prepare and it particularly helps if, for instance, kitchen items are put back in the cupboards rather than leaving the washing up for her to do. On some - thankfully rare- occasions, she has faced a big mess to sort out before she starts her work.
We are sorry too if you felt the kitchenware was not adequate for your needs.This has not been brought to our attention before. We provide 2 tea towels and place settings of cutlery,crockery(dinner plates, tea plates, bowls, glass dishes, wine glasses, beer glasses, drinking glasses) for 14 people and the cottage sleeps 12 so we thought this was sufficient.
Otherwise we thank you very much for the many positive comments you made about the cottage and that you would recommend us.

"The perfect place to unwind."

As the name implies, Welcome cottage has a very warm feel to it and is a perfect base to explore the Cotswolds. The accomodation is perfect for a family and is well furnished and kitted out with all the essentials. There were nine of us in our group for example, plenty of room for all. Bourton is a lovely place, i think everyone should spend at least a weekend there!

Thank you sincerely for your complimentary review.

"A dream come true."

If you want to feel like a multi millionaire for a short while then book this place.
We had my big five 0 birthday weekend here and I couldn't have asked for more. Amazing rooms, facilities and location.
I could write a book if I mentioned all that was right about Welcome Cottage but I will summarise with one word - incredible.

Our sincere thanks, Mr. Owen, for giving such a lovely review!

"A perfect family holiday in the Cotswolds"

This beautiful house was just as advertised, and easily embraced our 3-generation family of 12 (8 adults and 4 children). There is a huge amount of living space, including 2 sitting rooms and a large sun room (which was a major hit with all of us), so that everyone could find a comfortable place to hang out, either with others or alone for some quiet reading (grandchildren loved the window recesses for this) and napping. The large dining-room accommodated all of us with ease, and the breakfast area in the kitchen was very convenient for staggered eating times. The kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and dishes, and looks out onto the lovely garden of green lawn and well-tended borders. We loved using the half door.

The house is on a quiet road and a 2-minute walk from the little river that runs through the town. It is is perfectly situated for one-day trips, and we enjoyed Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick Castle, Oxford, The Cheese Shop in Moreton-in-the-Marsh, and then returning to Bourton and our "home" for tea, scones, ice-cream, etc. We could not have enjoyed our stay more.

Thank you very much for your lovely review.

"A wonderful time!"

Our stay at Welcome Cottage in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water was one of the most enjoyable highlights of our trip! We were eight adults traveling together including some family and close friends. The cottage was spacious and comfortable and absolutely charming. It is located just a couple of short blocks from the village center and we all enjoyed several walks a day into town for shopping and dining and seeing the sights. At the end of the day Welcome Cottage was the perfect place to simply relax and experience what it is like to live in a quaint English village.

Our sincere thanks for your very kind review.

"Welcome Cottage lives up to its name."

Our week at Welcome Cottage was the perfect venue for my 60th birthday celebrations with our extended family and friends. Its location just beyond the village centre is ideal as it was extremely quiet but just a few minutes from the high street. There was plenty of space for 12 people to eat, sleep and relax with a sunny conservatory overlooking the garden. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and although spacious, felt very welcoming and homely. If you want a holiday cottage in a lovely part of the Cotswolds that can accomodate a large group I can thoroughly recommend Welcome Cottage.

Thank you very much for sending us a lovely review.
