Little Rissington is a small and classic Cotswold village, laden with chocolate box Cotswold cottages in every direction every inch the typical, local village for this region. It sits on the edge of the hillside, approximately one mile from Bourton on the Water and within 5 miles of Stow on the Wold and Burford. Although there is no pub or shop within the village Bourton has a wide choice as well as few restaurants and tearooms to choose from.
Bourton is particularly known for its very pretty feel, especially the six arched bridges which cross the river that passes through the village as well as a few family attractions - The Motor Museum, Birdland and The Minature Village are all good little excersions. Slightly further afield are The Cotswolds Farm Park at Guiting Power (think Adam Henson and his healthy brigade) and The Cotswold Wildlife Park in Burford with lions and a wide selection of other animals.
The village is centrally located and very convenient for most Cotswold attractions and towns, many of which are within a short drive. Oxford (30mins), Cheltenham (20mins) and Bath (1 hour) each offer a full day out and are within reasonable driving distance.
