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 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!


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!

"A fabulous place to stay, everything you could want and more!"

My husband, myself and 2 boys (aged 12 & 8) have just returned from a week's stay at this beautiful cottage. This was the first one I looked at and having trawled around numerous websites this was still the one I came back to. Everything about it was beautiful, the cottage and the location; a stones throw from the river, our sons were out there constantly feeding the ducks! A gentle stroll along the river to the centre of Bourton is just a 2 minute walk. The cottage itself was spotless with everything you could want. There is no Wi-Fi and it was sometimes difficult getting a phone signal, but that's understandable in a 3 storey cottage of this age & was not an inconvenience at all. I was concerned that I'd have difficulty parking but we had no problems at all. You won't find anywhere better to stay in Bourton, we are already planning our next trip and will definitely stay at The Cottage every time.

"What a great place"

What a lovely cottage, right next to the river and minutes from everywhere in the village. We stayed with our 9 month old son and the open plan ground floor allowed us to keep an eye on him. We loved the quirkiness and old world charm of the cottage and will be returning later in the year. We stayed for a week in early January and got hit by the heavy snow which all added to the charm of the village which has lots to offer including bird land 100 yards up the road, a model village just across the little river 50 yards away and enough small cafes, pubs and eateries to keep you happy. The location of the village is also within 10 minutes of lots of other lovely places and things to do including the wildlife park in lovely Burford and Adam Hensons Farm from country file. What a great cottage, great village and we will be back in September to visit the other bits of the Cotswolds that we missed.

"A great place to stay"

This is a very nice, clean, modern cottage. Very centrally located - 50 feet from the river and a 2 min. walk to pubs and restaurants. Parking was never a problem. We visited about every town in tha cotawalds and did not see another town we would have liked better than Burton.

"Excellent Stay at Charming Cottage"

My mom, sister and I stayed for three nights at this lovely cottage. We had a wonderful time. It is in a great location just off the main pathway. The cottage is charming and has been nicely updated. It is very clean and has an extremely well equipped and modern kitchen. There are 1 1/2 bathrooms. Diane is a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this cottage.

"Excellent Cottage and fantastic location"

We have just got back from a weeks break at The Cottage and it was splendid. The cottage is in a perfect location in a quiet lane yet with all amenities less than a minutes walk away. It is situated within metres from the river which was great for our 4 yr old to feed the ducks. We loved the cottage as it had a character feel but was also very well equipped with mod cons !! Not having to worry about shopping for tea ,milk etc when you first arrive is also very nice. We would definately book here again.
