  • “We enjoyed our week at Newbury Cottage, it was situated right on the High Street so all the amenities of Bourton On The Water were a couple of minutes away.”

    ...

    Bourton On The Water is also handy for getting to other attractions of the Cotswolds, and although we drove to other places we were told there is a good bus service to places like Cheltenham for those who prefer not to use the car all the time. Regarding the cottage itself, the kitchen was very well equipped, and the kitchen was clean. There was bread in the freezer with instructions to replace if used, which I thought was a good idea. The furnishings in the cottage were a bit tired looking, dust was in all the wardrobes and also on the living room table. Also driving through the gap to get to our parking space was extremely nerve racking, and you could see where some cars hadn't quite made it, and scraped the walls!! Can I recommend that advice is given to drive in from the village end, as that proved to be the easier option. We were also a bit disappointed that our area of garden was not fenced in, and it would have been difficult to have the gate to the shared garden closed, which meant that our dog Ziggy had to be walked around the garden on the lead first thing in the morning and last thing at night, and could not run around the garden as he is used to at home. Overall the cottage served it's purpose and we were comfortable there, and Bourton On The Water, with it's pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, as a location, cannot be faulted.

The property

Newbury Cottage is a well situated, end of terrace cottage located close to the centre of Bourton on the Water - the ever popular and picturesque Cotswold village.

It is an ideal location for families with children or those wishing to be within very easy walking distance of village facilities and attractions.

The cottage dates back 230 years and retains its beamed character and Cotswold stone fireplace, whilst being sympathetically modernised in recent years.

It is presented in a traditional, basic style that is both cosy and comfortable.

A Cotswold cottage in a quintessential village that certainly represents good value.

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. 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.
