Wyck Rissington, Bourton on the Water & surrounding area
Park Bothy is so gorgeous! A cute Cotswolds' bolt hole, furnished to a very high standard AND with its own, private Hot Tub. The barn has been beautifully renovated to create a truly attractive holiday retreat. You have a private entrance, set off and away from the lane and then once parked up you are tucked away. Inside the owners have taken great care to provide a well equipped and stylish home muted colours are mixed with some classical features like the oak beams and a wood burning stove to give it a truly welcoming and relaxing feel. The home has all the creature comforts you would expect from such a quality retreat; the kitchen is well equipped for you to cook up a storm, the super king size double bed is vast and luxurious and then you have your hot tub*- enclosed and secretive! With every reason to stay in, should you want to venture out, you've got Burford and Stow on the Wold within 10 mins and two cracking pubs inside 5 min drive away too. If you are a walker, there are some beautiful countryside Cotswold walks nearby, including the wonderful renowned Oxfordshire Way. Little wonder we love this property - a Cotswolds' treat, and we believe you will too.

Park Bothy sits on a little lane at the top of the hill just outside the villages of Little Rissington and Wyck Rissington. Wyck (pronounced 'wick') is more a hamlet, but very pretty nonetheless, hidden down a lane making it a place that you would hardly know exists unless you were sent there! Little Rissington is similarly small and classic, laden with chocolate box Cotswold cottages in every direction every inch the typical, local village for this region.
The location of the property is ideal for people who fancy getting out and about to see some of the most well known parts of the Cotswolds. Bourton on the Water is about 5 mins away and there you will find many of the famous elements which make the Cotswolds so popular with visitors. Stow on the Wold and Burford are each within 10mins (max) and in both you will find a very wide and excellent range of shops, restaurants and bars not to mention places to browse.
Your nearest pub is probably The Lamb at Great Rissington and for fine dining The Feathered Nest in Nether Westcote, which serves excellent food (very good indeed!) but above all has an incredible postion overlooking the Cotswolds and its views. You will find it spectacular.
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 Model Village are all good little excursions. Lower Slaughter and Upper Slaughter are very close and are amongst the most beautiful villages in the entire Cotswolds.
Slightly further afield are The Cotswolds Farm Park at Guiting Power (think Adam Henson and his healthy farming brigade!!) and The Cotswold Wildlife Park in Burford with lions and a wide selection of other animals.
There are some superb walks from your door, but be warned, the hills can get steep so prepare yourself with the right kit, but it is definitely worth it, especially with your pooch.
