    “Very comfortable and peaceful holiday accommodation.”

    Amazing views across the Cotswolds with many opportunities to see wildlife. We were visited by 2 deer on Sunday evening! Several places to visit within a 20mile radius. We enjoyed Chedworth Roman Villa - recently featured on Digging for Britain! Also spent an interesting time in Witney small museum showing history of blanket making. Stow on the Wold - a typical Cotswold village, Bourton on the Water model village is very good but extremely busy at weekends. We will certainly visit the area ...

The property

Cotswold View is a homely, contemporary self-contained property located on the ground floor of a unique eco-friendly farmhouse, offering spectacular south-easterly views across the beautiful Windrush Valley.

Sleeping up to four guests, in two homely bedrooms, Cotswold View is perfect for a couple or a small family seeking a lovely break in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside, close to one of England's most beautiful villages, Bourton-on-the-Water.

As you arrive on the property grounds you will be wowed by the wrap-around farm that extends down a grassy hill to the enclosed paddocks beyond, where off-road parking spaces greet you on arrival, before you step up to the front door and marvel at the miles of unspoilt countryside views before you.

Enter the front door into the open-plan living space which is a great room for socialising with your family, has lovely floor-to-ceiling windows allowing the sunlight to flood in and comes well-equipped with everything you will need during your stay to make delicious home-cooked meals and enjoy them gathered with your loved ones at the dining table underfloor heating warms you on a cold evening, as you overlook the rolling hills of Windrush Valley beyond.

Conveniently located on the ground floor you will find two homely bedrooms; the master boasts floor-to-ceiling windows providing you with stunning views across the valley and hosts twin beds (can be changed to super-king-size on request), and the second bedroom, located at the rear of the property, contains a welcoming double bed and has a unique wall separating the room from the main living area which allows in natural light.

Once you’ve gotten some well-earned rest, kick-start your day with an invigorating rinse in the bathroom, before joining your group for a steaming cup of coffee at the garden table to plan the day ahead; here you will find an array of wildlife that visits the farm and calming views over the Valley.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and head into the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water known as the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, where you will find a wealth of attractions and shops, restaurants and tea rooms, such as Cotswolds Antiques and Tea Room and Coach & Horses pub, as well as Birdland Park and Gardens where you can surround yourself by wildlife and discover a wide world of birds!

Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold villages, and is a small market town with an array of boutique shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants which is well worth a visit; you can visit the Fosse Gallery to admire an array of contemporary British art, indulge in a bite to eat and drinks at The Stag at Stow, or revel in the scrumptious tea and cakes at The Old Bakery Tea Room.

About the location


Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out where you can enjoy a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.

Note: Guests should be aware that Cotswold View is a ground-floor property in a newly built farmhouse on Fluff's Farm, which is a small working farm, with normal farm sights, smells and noises.

Note: The owners of Fluff's Farm live in a separate, self-contained part of the farmhouse part of the year.

Note: The property is very eco-friendly and its underfloor heating is provided by an air source heat pump, as a result, guests may hear the sound of the pump (similar to an air conditioning unit) in the bedroom during the winter, when the underfloor heating is adjusting to maintain the ambient heat level.

Note: To supply the hot water, a unique British designed system has been installed which senses the moisture in the shower room, extracts it and then combines this to help heat the water, as a result, guests occupying the second bedroom may temporarily hear the system as it heats the water.

Note: The property is located on a working farm and Cotswold View's private area is not enclosed, therefore it is essential that young children are supervised outside at all times.

Note: The property is all on one level and is wheelchair accessible, with a wheelchair ramp available on request abd there is a grab rail alongside the toilet, and a handrail and stool for the shower.

Note: There is no window in bedroom 2, however the door and the wall separating the room from the main living area is glazed, to allow natural light in, with a curtain for privacy.
