    “This is a comfortable, well furnished property, nicely situated for both walking into the village and local countryside walks, as well as visiting nearby places of interest.”

    The owner is most helpful, prepared to respond to requests. There is a full size dishwasher, but to use this economically, there needs to be more crockery and cutlery. The current side plates are too small. We appreciated the washing machine, but the provided airer is too small - next door kindly loaned us theirs! There were hand towels for the shower rooms and toilet but we could have done with one for the kitchen as well as an extra tea cloth.There is an EV charger mentioned but it should be ...

    The owner is most helpful, prepared to respond to requests. There is a full size dishwasher, but to use this economically, there needs to be more crockery and cutlery. The current side plates are too small. We appreciated the washing machine, but the provided airer is too small - next door kindly loaned us theirs! There were hand towels for the shower rooms and toilet but we could have done with one for the kitchen as well as an extra tea cloth.There is an EV charger mentioned but it should be noted that this is just via an external 3 pin plug not a 7 kWh car charger. To the owner’s credit, when he realised we didn’t have the necessary lead to utilise this, he ordered one which we received the next day and overnight charging worked well. The rear outside area is nice to sit in but would benefit from some weeding. We have made the above points to hopefully help make what is a good property into a 5 star one. We had a very enjoyable week’s stay and would happily recommend the property.

    Steve, thank you for your positive review we are glad you enjoyed your stay and you were able to make use of the EV charger. Bow cottage is a new venture and we are adding new features all the time to improve the experience for our guests, so we value your comments and we are listening. Best regards Bow cottage Property Owner

The property

Bow Cottage, a Cotswold stone three-bedroom cottage sits within the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water, in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds.

Bow Cottage is warm and inviting, with exposed honey-coloured stone walls, and Farrow and Ball colours throughout, it is an ideal place to call home for a family of six looking to escape to the country.

Upon arrival you will find two off-road parking spaces directly outside the cottage, allowing you to easily unload your belongings.

Step inside and make yourself comfortable in the lounge, with honey-coloured stone and a centre fireplace, this is a lovely space to unwind and chat about the day's adventures.

Allow the house chef to cook up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher; there is even a washing machine for your laundry.

Move upstairs and choose between two double bedrooms, each beautifully presented with original feature walls.

The stunning bathroom with stone, feature walls, has a freestanding, slipper bath and large walk-in shower, together with a traditional basin and WC.

On the ground floor there is a single bedroom, and an en-suite shower and handbasin, making it ideal for elderly or less mobile guests; there is also a ground floor cloakroom with WC.

The safe, totally enclosed rear garden is covered with Cotswold stone and has a raised deck to catch the late afternoon sun and to enjoy a glass of wine.

At the front of the cottage there is an outside charging point and a shower for our four-legged guests.

With direct access to the village and walks to the Slaughters from the gate, Bow Cottage is well-placed for a Cotswold experience.

For those who enjoy Clarkson’s Farm, his Hawkstone Brewery and Tap Room is a short, flat walk away, a perfect end to a walk in the countryside.

Head into the heart of the village and stock-up on your essentials at the Co-Op superstore, or why not sample a hearty meal at a restaurant, with The Rose Tree Restaurant, Kingsbridge, or The Dial House to name a few.

There are some fantastic attractions that await you, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, as well as the Birdland Park and Gardens.

Three miles away lies Stow-on-the-Wold, an ancient market town that offers a bustling farmers market, tea rooms, antiques, and craft markets and plenty of well-established eateries.

Hiking and walking come in abundance here, offering routes through idyllic villages and trails overlooking the countryside.

Break away to Bow Cottage and experience this delightful part of the Cotswolds.

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.
