Oozing with charm and character, this warm and welcoming, terraced holiday home is an ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds. Located within the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water, known locally as ’the Venice of the Cotswolds’, Station Cottage is just seconds from the high street and all the attractions that this popular Cotswold village has to offer.
This early 18th century, Grade II listed cottage has been restored to provide all the creature comforts of a home away from home. To the front of the property there is a small courtyard garden, ideal for enjoying a glass of wine in the summer. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the mod-cons and the dining room has an extendable oak dining table with four chairs. Both bedrooms have been furnished to a very good standard with oak furniture and for that extra comfort, they include goose feather pillows and duvets.
Bordered by Stow-on-the-Wold to the north, Northleach to the south, The Rissingtons to the east and The Slaughters to the west, Bourton-on-the-Water sits in the heart of the Cotwolds. One of the more distinctive Cotswold villages, the River Windrush runs through Bourton and is straddled by a series of low, elegant, stone bridges and bordered by shaded greens, providing the perfect picnic spot. Children can enjoy a spot of river paddling whilst adults admire the handsome Cotswold architecture.
Every August Bank Holiday, there is a football match played in the river, often drenching both the players and the spectators alike!
Station Cottage sits just seconds off the main thoroughfare so you can mooch along the high street in search of the perfect holiday memento, or simply enjoy delicous local produce in one of the many local eateries. It’s the perfect spot for a weekend getaway but there’s heaps to do if you’re tempted to linger in this idyllic spot.
With its model village, Birdland Park and Gardens, the Cotswolds Perfumery and a collection of vintage cars and antique toys literally on the doorstep, you don’t need a car to keep the whole family entertained. Within easy striking distance you will find a host of well known Cotswold attractions including Hidcote Manor, Snowshill Manor, Bourton House, Sezincote, Kiftsgate Court and Batsford Aboretum.
It goes without saying that there’s some stunning walking country and at Station Cottage, your four legged friend can enjoy it all too. Shops 10 yards, pubs and restaurants 100 yards.
