Bourton-on-the-Water

One of the prettiest villages in England, Bourton on the Water is often referred to as the ''Little Venice'' of the Cotswolds.

Straddling the River Windrush, Bourton on the Water has a series of elegant low bridges, nestled alongside neat tree-shaded greens and tidy stone banks. The perfect spot for a picnic or stroll, there is plenty to see and do here.

Bourton on the Water has more than its fair share of honey coloured Cotswold houses, many of them dating back to Elizabethan times and now home to independent tourist shops, unique gifts and cafés.

A cottage in this area provides the perfect base from which to explore the villages'' past; at nearby The Model Village, there is an excellent miniature model that depicts Bourton on the Water as it was in 1937 using authentic building materials and local stone, or maybe embark on a fascinating journey of motoring throughout the 20th Century at the Cotswold Motoring Museum.

For a fun day out head to Birdland, home to a collection of penguins and exotic birds, while The Dragonfly Maze offers a huge hedge maze of puzzles and clues the whole family can try to solve.

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 (please note, there is no space to the rear of the property), ideal for enjoying a glass of wine in the summer. Further outdoor space can be found at the village green, which sits alongside the beautiful River Windrush and is less than 110 yards from the front door of the cottage). The living room is comfortably furnished, with seating for 4 adults and has a 40" 3D Smart TV, Playstation 3 and a Bluetooth music dock. The dining area area has an extendable oak dining table with four leather chairs. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the mod-cons (including dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and DAB radio).
