Park up on the spacious driveway which can accommodate three cars, before unloading your bags and stepping into your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into the spacious sitting room, traditionally-decorated with authentic exposed wooden beams and original stone flooring dating back centuries, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush sofa with your favourite tipple as you select your favourite show from the Smart TV whilst the rustic open fire crackles nearby.

When stomach’s start to rumble, make your way through to the well-equipped kitchen, stocked with exquisite glass and tableware, to whip up flavourful meals with the help of the electric cooker, AGA and fridge.

Gather around the dining table for six to savour a delicious meal, or if the weather is nice, make dinner an alfresco affair and fire up the barbecue on your private patio, with fine log burners for when the evening cools.

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.
