The property

Situated in the heart of picturesque Bourton-On-The-Water in Gloucestershire is this 250-year-old, three-storey, stone-built cottage, Barton Cottage.

Boasting character features including beams and exposed stone, and with amenities just a short walk away, this cottage makes an ideal base for a trip to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

On arrival, find a rear, enclosed garden complete with a bistro set where you can enjoy a cup of tea in the mornings.

Inside, the kitchen, dining area and sitting areas open up into a social hub for your group, where you can find everything you need for a relaxing, self-catering break, including a well-equipped cooking space and dining table for four.

After dinner, be sure to snuggle up around the woodburning stove and take advantage of the Smart TV.

After watching a film, climb upstairs to the bedrooms; a light and airy twin and a sleek bathroom rest on the first floor, while a king-size with a vaulted ceiling rests on the second floor.

Explore your surroundings and treat your loved ones to a meal out; you will be spoilt for choice with the selection of pubs and restaurants in the centre of Bourton-On-The-Water, or there is The Mousetrap Inn, which is just a stone’s throw from the cottage.

Make your way to the high-street for a range of boutique shops, as well as the quaint Model Village, a delightful way to spend an afternoon.

Walkers will enjoy the nearby Windrush path, which winds along the Windrush River, while avid bird watchers may want to make a stop at Jurassic Journey.

Heading outside of the village, you can discover the National Trust’s Chedworth Roman Villa, an ancient estate of 4th-century ruins with a museum.

Animal lovers can venture further south for a visit to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, or if you plan your timing, you are in a prime location for reaching Cheltenham for the Racecourse and popular Cheltenham Festival.

For shopping, culture, and more hustle and bustle, Gloucester is also within easy reach of the cottage.

Whether you want a relaxing retreat or a fun-filled escape, choose Barton Cottage as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location

BOURTON-ON-THE-WATER

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.

Please note between the 13th - 17th November 23 the property to the side is having the roof replaced, so this may impact your stay at the cottage during this time. Please get in touch if you have any questions over this period.
